Man, my life is busy, but I guess it's better than being bored.
You poor bastard. I'll take being bored.

Have a good one!

Yeah, the only times I regularly make spelling mistakes, the in-built dictionary doesn't even recognise the word I'm after. But I don't take the -ize thing quite so, patriotically? as you do. I defend the ou often, though. Though with the butchering of the English language today, I think a wrongly placed 'ize' is the least of our problems!

I believe the Oxford English Dictionary in about 1993 or so decided that -ize is as equally acceptable as -ise. I call heresy. Fortunately, New Zealand English has refused to adopt -ize as equal with -ise and my New Zealand edition of the Oxford English Dictionary warns against it as an Americanism!

I've always been passionate about the language. Well, since I was six. I did badly on a spelling test and was determined to never spell a word wrong again. I was horrified when I discovered American spelling. "AOLer speak" makes me nauseous.

OK, I need to be up in 7-7.5 hours, so I'm out. Have a good one and kill off this thread, folks. Please, go somewhere funny next time. Te Puke, New Zealand or whatever.

Ah, it's good to hear of a youngster gaining an early scepticism of Americanism in Australia and NZ, pre Howard government no less.

I'm out too. Hopefully those over the Pacific can kick this thread along soonafter.

Well that's gotta be exciting for you. In the meantime, this is what a baby would look like with Daniel Day-Lewis' mustache from Gangs of New York:



I hope Pedokiss doesn't get too excited.
