I have a confession of a personal nature to make. I am a fake.
I am a horrible Typist. I hunt and peck, spell check a million times and am pretty much obsessive-complulsive about correcting my mistakes. If I come back after the edit time and find mistakes, I practically FREAK.
So what I was thinking of doing tonight was to not correct any fucking typos I may make from here on out. If they are really bad and need re-doing, I will strike them. I will try anyway

oh yeah, like you care :)

As for OCD about it, I think the OCD are the ones who come back to let you know of every mistake you make :).

So no worries mate. Spell'em and Tell'em.

2. I empathize with you
I'm not quite obsessive about spelling mistakes, but I like to avoid them whenever possible. If I make them during a frantically typed post, like during the VP debates, I let them go. If not, I grimace and correct them. Anyway, good luck trying to break your proper spelling addiction! :evilgrin:

3. Don't look now but it would appear that you've just swapped your...
...compulsion for accuracy with a compulsion for honesty. If I were your shrink, I would assign you the dual tasks of being sloppy and deceptive for the night. ;)

6. oh I am not compulsive about thet, not that I'm a liar
actually I thouhgt the OM was rather deceptive in nd of itself-it looks like I might confess to being scott MaClellan or dick Cheney-or jeassica simpson, but she wouldn't be smart wnough tio be me. Although I bet she types better...
