Secret confessions.

I LOVE editing stuff. I do it without thinking...which sometimes can be a hassle. Ever see something that you know is wrong, but you can't change it? Like on Facebook, when someone has written "knew" instead of "new"...but I can't do anything about it other than stare at it. Erg.

Anyone know of part-time editing jobs that require no experience? Let me know.

Also I've realized that I'm a super visually-oriented person...but mostly just with words and letters. When I look at a picture of someone and try to remember the person's name, I actually see it written out in my mind's eye. Sometimes even my sentences, as I'm thinking them, or speaking them, I'm writing them out in my mind.

Maybe a lot of this has to do with working in a role which requires huge amounts of reading every day. Overall, I chalk it up to the phonics lessons at age 4. Thanks Mom!

Anyone else concerned that Superstore's eggnog sits out, NOT in refrigeration? Guaranteed I'm steering clear of that...

My other concern for today...the fact that college students seem to think that by using spell check they reserve the right to not edit their own papers. Do you know how many papers I've read in the last three months that allowed spell check to change "definitely" to "defiantly"? There's nothing like stating, "I defiantly agree that we need to help with the homeless situation in Canada". So you are in defiance, but agree? Interesting...
