The Trickle - three weeks later

March 10, 2009 - Brian Ferry

I apologize to all my faithful fans who check for my new blogs every few hours.

You can stop that.

At least I can offer some good fodder for Spellcheck Madness (and there was great rejoicing).

Mrs. Cinderella (Calender (don't you think Calendar would have been a better/easier choice?)) was in romanticized (remediation) after going through the PSALMS (PSSAs) over a grueling three-day period. Fortunately for her, Cinderella has some help from cessation (canoeists) and did not have to take the test in the presence of the Groveling Monarchy (Greenville McHenry) family.

Spellcheck Madness headlines edition

The Useful (USFS) and the Aphid (ADP) were at odds again yesterday.

A motorist on Motorist Run saw Mr. Motorist (Morrison and Morrison (the first motorist is actually motorist)).

While French (just French) sees Comprehend (Chompers) as a mascot, the partners in Lowering Burma (Loranger Bauman (a stretch, there)) are hoping Comprehend can come to work for them (another stretch).

The owner of the 50s diner is Sensational (Santillanes).

The Homeopath (Hampton) remains closed. (Yes, I know, it's a repeat. Different context, though.)

And finally... The sports department took advantage of Sobriety while available. (Seybert)

Engagements and one-sided relationships

The other day, I was looking over a list of names that was slated to appear in the newspaper. In the engagements was the name Wolf. Farther down the list was the name Lamb. I decided that it would be very cool for the announcement if those two were together. I then had the feeling that it might not be so good for the relationship if their names in any way matched their personalities. Not shown on the list was which member of each engaged pair was the man and which the woman, so I'm not really sure my particular choice in pairing would have worked out anyway.

By the way, it turns out I just couldn't decipher the writing. The name was Laub. My kingdom for... what exactly?
