Unforeseen Accident.

Unforeseen accident... I know, by definition, all accidents are unforeseen. But this really hit me hard.

My car was the white car. I'm unharmed, but spiritually drained...

First, a quick discovery not related to spelling. if you search 'Existence is futile,' I'm the top result! Rock on! Wooha! And all the other exclamations of pride and joy you can think of.

I have become so reliant on spell check that I just throw words out there and figure they will get underlined if I mistype them. It's not always right though, as I have discovered my vocabulary exceeds its vocabulary. But it is a far better speller than I am.

There are a few problems, of course. Like words that it must repeatedly correct for me.

One word that I frequently misspell in various ways is 'excercise'. Sometimes the spell check doesn't even know what the hell I mean, I spell it so poorly. Also some words just look wrong when spelled correctly 'misspell' is an example, due to the double 's'. Also, 'propagate'. I guess because that's not the way I pronounce it. 'Received' always tricks me with that 'e' before 'i'.

I'm working on a project involving speech recognition, can you tell? Doesn't help that I keep wanting to spell it 'speach.'

What can I say, I really like peaches...

Where I live...

Wow, I was tracking down where I was meeting my friends this evening, when I found a feature on google maps that actually lets you move down a street and view the environment in 360 degrees.

So now, when someone wants to find my place, I can send them a link and they can clearly see exactly where I live, even going so far as to explore my neighborhood.

I've included the html version below, crazy....

Damnit Pandora...

...I'm not a twelve-year-old girl.

Stop playing the Jonas Brothers already.

And what the hell do they have to do with Kate Nash and Kim Fox, anyway?

Oh! I see now, somehow you used them as a seed.

That totally sounds like something I would accidentally do.

(Don't ask if that last sentence was sarcasm, I'm not even sure myself.)

((For the longest time, I thought sarcasm deserved an 'h' somewhere.))
