What Intentionally Misspelled Words Drive You Crazy?


On Fridays, I ask a series of questions to get a conversation going in the comments. Answer one, answer all, or ask your own question. On to this week's topics...

1. Many stores switch around a few letters in their names to stand out (or because they couldn't get a good domain name). Kids becomes kidz. Time becomes tyme. Kids Time becomes Kidz Tyme. Are there any intentionally misspelled business names that make you reach for your red pen?

2. Here's one for anyone in the beginning stages of elaborate Halloween costume planning. What was your greatest Halloween costume?

3. It would make Matt Soniak so happy if he could answer some of your Big Questions. What have you always wondered, but maybe not wondered enough to look up? He's planning his October lineup right now!

4. Your turn! Got a question for your fellow _flossers? Ask it here. And have a great weekend!

What Shows Up When You Google Yourself?

On Fridays we ask a bunch of unrelated questions. Your answers help get us through the afternoon. On to this week's topics...

1. What's the strangest thing someone could learn about you by Googling your name? And has anyone who shares your name done anything remarkable? There's a Jason English who's almost exactly my age. He allegedly bit someone's ear off and flushed it down the toilet. It will be tough to rise above that in the search rankings.

2. What's something you regret quitting?

3. If you could change one rule in any board game, what would it be? (If you have a specific house rule you think the world should adopt, let us hear it.)

4. Do the kids celebrate Mischief Night/Devil's Eve in your neighborhood? What's the worst incident you remember?

5. Got a question for the group? Ask away. Have a great weekend and happy Halloween!
