    My name is very unconventionally spelled (first and last). In fact I think I am the ONLY person in the entire country with my name spelled the way it is. What's up with this? INTJ's (at least Kriston is, I can't remember what Cathy is??) AND interestingly spelled names. Hmmmm...and Kriston, it is "funny" to see your chain being yanked!!! ROFL! (sorry, sorry, I'll quit!!!) grin

    Yes please, since she just sent me a PM that was basically just a string of quotation marks!

    EVIL!

    Yeah, but what gets your goat? Improper use of apostrophes? Malformation of the subjunctive? (Maybe I'm giving too much away...)

    I think I use alot, quite alot, as a matter of fact. In fact, alot does not seem to be captured by the spell checker which I also use quite alot. (another big cheesy grin)

    I share your quotation mark pain. I had an officemate for 3 years who "made" those little quotation marks with her fingers in the air about 10-15 times a day--"totally" randomly!!! More than once I "almost" launched myself over both our desks and ""pinned" her hands behind her back!

    If you were going to give it away, that might be the best way.

    (I'm also trying to come up with a way to work apostrophes into this passage correctly, just to tease you, but I had better luck with the subjunctive...)

    LOL, Dottie! I thought you were just playing with me! Your use of "" has never bothered me. Put your mind at ease!
