Home, Home on the Strange
So it’s black and white decor, now, which, Alice, is perhaps a tad ironic? Always pretty much my favourite, though my significant other won’t allow me to do the same with our living space.
Significant others. There’s a theme for a thread, surely.
Mine has this passion for relocating things, changing furniture around, and tidiness. Can’t count the number of times I’ve come home, thrown myself exhausted upon the bed, and missed. Okay, not quite so bad, but it’s come close.
And here’s another, different thing. I’m English. I write English English as opposed to American English. A US teacher would spank me, I’m sure, for using English English (henceforward E.E) spellings, whilst an E.E teacher would no doubt do the same if I spelled things the American Way.
When I spelled ‘favourite’ earlier my spell-check underlined it, and has again, so I made my ‘favourite’ ‘favorite’ and the spell-check took no exception. But I’m an E.E writer, so I’ve changed ‘favorite’ back to ‘favourite’ and I’ve now got a red line per line here…
I’m not going to switch, I’ve decided, to US English for the sake of the spell-checker. I know perfectly well the majority audience is entirely able to cope with E.E spellings, even if, to some of them, they do look a bit odd.
Update? I am still trying to get vraimenterotique.com, my former site, transferred over here or whatever. I’m working on and hopefully putting the finishing touches to two novels, the M/F “The Sword of Don Alejandro” and the M/M “Islands” and a couple of novellas. I’m hoping to start publishing fairly soon in e-book form.
Anyone out there got serious peeves about e-books?
