    Is this also true for "fettuccini" and "fettuccine"?

    No, fettuccini is just the anglicised version, it should be fettuccine. Like zucchini should actually be zucchine the 'e' is feminine, 'i' is masculine, and as fettuccine means little ribbons it should be feminine

    I sat in a restaurant the other night and listened to a couple ordering their "pasketti" and then they ordered an "expresso" and a "cuppa chino"... Yes seriously!

    I don't like it when people write 'prolly' instead of 'probably.' Who actually says "prolly"?!!!

    I found out what word it was that The Cheesecake Shop misspelled - "occasion." They have signs up on the outside of their shops saying something like "for all occassions!"

    Does anyone else die a little bit inside when people write "Here here!"?
