    Isn't it? Where is it from?

    According to Wikipedia (which I know isn't always the most trusted of sources) the 'traditional recipe, [was] registered in 1982 by the Bolognese delegation of Accademia Italiana della Cucina'

    My ex-husband has a habit of saying he is "salubriously happy" when he is drunk... This just sounds wrong. It is wrong isn't it? It's not just my dislike of him showing through?



    That made me laugh

    Salubrious is a word, meaning "health-giving" or "healthy"

    I see this one a lot: people using wander/wandering when they mean wonder/wondering

    Yes! I see this one all the time...

    Voluptuous - connotations of curvaceous loveliness...
    Volumptuous - connotations of... erm... lumpiness???

    This is one that I have only heard two people say correctly...percolate. Most people say 'perculate'.

    I can't stand seeing 'women' instead of 'woman', or 'better then' for 'better than'. It drives me batty.

    Oh, and 'excape'.

    'Nucular' (nuclear).

    'Cup of chino'.

    The worst one of all is DEFINATELY. I hate, hate, hate it!!!!!!!!!!

    I personally hate:
    Can I arks you a question?
    Grrrr... it is "ask"

    I was pretty certain salubrious meant healthy... therefore ex-husband is definitely using it incorrectly! Hehe.

    It's probably been mentioned but I haven't been keeping up lately - I received my pet registration renewal in the mail yesterday and it informed me that "if you own more then 2 cats you require a permit". Ugh.
