The Weeklies #228

The Weekly Awesome Fact. Holy crapballs, our kitchen is done. Done, I say!

The Weekly Weekend Activity. Cooking. We've been without a kitchen for so long we're just planning to cook all weekend.

The Weekly Beer. Sam Adams Latitude 48.

The Weekly Read. I love Nick Hornby but frankly his latest novels haven't quite lived up to his earlier stuff. But still, I jumped at the chance to download and read Everyone's Reading Bastard when I saw the short story (novellaette?) pop up on Amazon. It was good, entertaining and way too brief. My only issue was the ending which seemed rather abrupt, kind of like Hornby just got tired of writing, turned his computer off and wandered off.

The Weekly Sport. Soccer.

The Weekly Word I Can't Spell. Herding. If you're a Facebook friend, you understand.

The Weekly Sign That I'm Getting Increasingly Old. For no apparently reason my upper body has been sore for, like, a week.

The Weekly Question. What's the one word you just can't seem to ever spell?

It's not that I can't spell it, but I can not EVER correctly type the word THE. It always comes out teh and I have to go back and fix it. I can never spell definitley right. There I just misspelled it and didn't correct it so you can see I can't spell it.

Yeah for kitchens! Can't wait for pictures.

Beautiful. I always type it as 'beatu...' and have to go back and correct it.

Congrats on the new kitchen!

I feel the same exact way about Stephen King's stories. He's a phenomenal writer, he just can't write an ending to save his life. I've always, always had trouble spelling definitely. It's a damn tricky word!

I think maybe Lisa nad I were separated at birth. I have the same problems.Can't wait to see the new kitchen. We move every couple of years and when we are between houses, we do the same eating-out-paper-plates dance you've been doing. It gets old very quickly. I suspect your upper back hurts from washing large items in the tub.

Can't spell "hors d'oeuvres" without checking. Except I just did. Just like I can't say "faculty" or "Arnold Palmer" unless I'm explaining that I can't say it.

Again, it's not that I can't spell it, but I cannot type "probate". It always comes out probabte. Which is bad, since I'm a probate paralegal...

There IS a word I can never spell so I added it to my autocomplete at work, but I cannot for the life of me remember what it is...

Definitely <--- I seriously had to just look it up and then copy and paste it here. I can never get it right!

Posted by: Tess at September 14, 2012 5:33 PM

Appropriate. I have to think about it every time I type it.

Posted by: Judy at September 14, 2012 6:38 PM

Can't wait to see the kitchen!! and I can never seem to spell "occasion"

Posted by: Kris at September 15, 2012 2:44 PM

I have two words I can barely ever spell; Guarantee and hors d'oevre ... hors d'oeuvre???
Hooray for your new kitchen and your return to having access to one!!
