    Lately I've seen quite a few people spell ludicrous as 'ludacris' (like the rapper).

    For the ladies discussing quotation marks, you might enjoy this blog.

    My MIL uses quotation marks unnecessarily all the time and it drives me crazy! The card we got when Zoe was born had 'Congratulations on the arrival of your new daughter "Zoe Jessica".' And further down 'Our "first" granddaughter'. Um, no, that is actually her name and she really is your first granddaughter.

    On that note - granddaughter - one D or two? Grandad only has one. My phone says two (and we all know how reliable iPhones are for spelling and grammar lol!) :P

    I'm seeing quiet/quite confused a lot lately. Or have I said that already? Today when shopping my friend () and I saw an a-frame blackboard out the front of a store with 'recieve' on one side and 'receive' on the other. Weren't sure so went with both?

    I keep seeing people say "I'm bias" it drives me utterly insane. No, you are not bias, you are biased. Grrrr!!

    i just saw two ads on gumtree. one for a 'fileing cabinet' and the other for baby budgies, including 'latino' ones. (for non bird types out there, that should be lutino)

    lol no lutino is one of the mutations. a lutino cockatiel is yellow. i assume it would be the same with budgies. either way it's lUtino, not lAtino.

    Overheard conversation today and thought it would make a good inclusion for this thread:

    Boy 1 - "Do you go to church?"
    Boy 2 - "Nah, but my parents are devoured Catholics.."


    Gold.
