Spell Chequer

I have just run all my blog posts through a Spell Checker and boy did I make some obvious spelling errors! I have of course now corrected the ones I found.

In honour of this, I have a Poem!

Spell Chequer
Eye halve a spelling chequer, It came with my pea sea
It plainly marques four my revue, Miss steaks eye kin knot sea.

Eye strike a key and type a word, And weight four it two say
Weather eye am wrong oar write, It shows me strait a weigh.

As soon as a mist ache is maid, It nose bee fore two long
And eye can put the error rite, Its rarely ever wrong.

Eye have run this poem threw it, I am shore your pleased two no
Its letter perfect in it’s weigh, My chequer tolled me sew.

Oh What a Night!

When I got in from work at about 5pm, I went straight to bed as I was too tired. I slept till nearly midnight and then came online to try to work out how to get Moblogger to work. It is almost there, but does not seem to want to upload the images to any directory on my FTP site, although it does connect!

I will e-mail the guy who created it to see if has any ideas!

* * PhotoBlog * * If I get the program to work, I will hopefully on a regular basis post images direct from my phone. In the meantime, when you view this Blog there may be posts which I have posted to test and will most likely say “Test Post” but I delete them after a short period!

The Raven by Edgar Allen Poe

I love this piece by Edgar Allen Poe, so thought I would share.

The Official Project Gutenberg Web site

Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered, weak and weary,
Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore–
While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,
As of some one gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door.
“‘Tis some visiter,” I muttered, “tapping at my chamber door–
Only this and nothing more.”

Wide Awake

I am wide-awake at 4:30am and cannot sleep. It seems like an eternity that I have been lying here.

Earlier in the day I had been planning on watching Enterprise as I always do on a Monday at 8pm on SkyOne. At 8:15, I realised that I had missed the first 15mins. I watched the rest, but I can see the repeat on Sunday.

Why can’t I sleep? I have to get up for work in about 3hrs.
