I was in Atlanta. The son of my fathers best friend has a car company there (222.performanceimportsatlanta.com).
I was also in Santa Monica as a trainee in a film company for 6 months. I still work there as a freelancer a few times a year when there are German customers.
And I have a friends in Colorado Springs and near Pensacola. I will visit them in 2009.
Cool, my parents had a German exchange student in the late 80's. I only met him once and can't remember what town he was from.

I'm a hick....deal with it.

My problem has always been writing on paper whats in my head. My mind is usually a paragraph ahead of my typing.
That's why I split it. Seemed like I should.

As for being way ahead of your fingers, I do the same. It's difficult if I don't go right back and read immediately because I forget what I was trying to say.

Oh heck no, you're not a Grammar Nazi, that's Scout. But yes, I feel your pain. Writing is fast becoming a lost art. Seems a shame that when society falls no one will be able to communicate without being face to face.

Cavey, I agree to a degree. Grammar, punctuation, and spelling aren't important to everyone. Most people mix up certain words, I write words backwards sometimes because of my injury, and commas are just a pain in the ass to place.

I also know that when you read something your mind tends to fill in words and skip over common mistakes especially if you've read the piece over and over. Which is the reason most writers have beta readers and editors.

Anyways, glaring spelling errors bug me, too, but mostly I just like to tease you guys.

cavediverjc I don't think it's too much to ask for people to not end their sentences with prepositions, dangle their participles, or misspell words. It's lack of attention to detail. And that lack may not kill you in a desk job, but it will in my job. It's a HUGE pet peeve of mine. It also makes you look uneducated or just lazy. Here's a link that you (collectively) can copy and save to your computer. If there's any question about how to spell a word, visit this site and HOLY COW....all your questions will be answered!!!

Dictionary and Thesaurus - Merriam-Webster Online

If you're guilty, then know this.....I'm not making fun of you, I'm lending you a hand.

If you're not guilty, I'm not patronizing you, this doesn't apply to you. Disregard previous rant....
