Adventures in Learning New Things…
Today, I learned a few new things. I learned that the by-line on my blog has been misspelled for years. Woolly does not have an ‘e’ in it. I also learned that I used their instead of they’re in yesterday’s post, even though I truly do know the difference. After ruminating on these two things, I subsequently learned that either my readers don’t notice things like that, or that they’re too polite to say anything. Am I really the only person I know who occasionally feels the need to fire off an e-mail gently saying “Ahem, I’m sorry to say you’ve misrepresented either the lexical or grammatical norms of the English language.” ?
I also learned (thanks to Melanie’s blogging savvy) how to add a “What I’m Reading” section on the sidebar. If you glance to your left, you’ll see it. I called it “Next to my sofa”, since that’s where most of my reading material ends up. (Except the Reader’s Digest, but I refuse to add a sidebar detailing what’s in my bathroom.)
Oh, and while I’m thanking Melanie, I should also thank her for the Apple Crisp recipe she posted. Annelie and I made it tonight, and it was delicious.
Now, I’m off to watch the end of the Rugby match. (Maybe eventually I’ll learn what the rules governing that sport are.)
