I worked with a guy whose last name was Dioszegi. On the outside of his office he taped mailing labels with all the different spellings of his name

My sister's last married name was Guimond. The most usual pronouncement of it was "gooeemond." The correct way was Gi mond, hard G. The spellings of the name was incredible. When her husband died, the stone mason called her every day to check the spelling for a week. My maiden name is Keyes and a lot of people would pronounce it like the Spanish Reyes.

And a lot of people think my name is a nickname for Adelaide. And when I correct them, they still insist on calling me Adelaide. That is when I stop responding to them.

Everyone with a boring last name like Smith has it all over some others.

Most everyone who's been to our travel web site, knows our last name is Goch. Steve is always quick to say it rhymes with Scotch.

I have some dear friends who can't spell to save their lives. They post often on major websites, and I just facepalm.

I see so many misspells on FB. I'm not perfect, but I do proofread before posting.

Pirate can't spell to save his life. I can't do math to save mine. So I help him with his spelling and he does all my math problems. He is a whiz with math. Give him a column of figures, and he can give you the answer immediately.

was walking thru an airport a week or so ago. They had a commercial on a big screen TV, not even sure what it was. There was this young actress in it. She's been in few movies as a child and now she is very pretty blond young adult. For a life of me I cannot remember what movies she was in or her name. For some reason it is bugging me to no end. Even woke up last night and could not fall back to sleep, kept trying to remember who she is. Weird.

Was it Brooke Shields Charlie or maybe Drew Barrymore?

Sounds like Drew. Brooke is brunette. And not so young anymore, but still gorgeous.
