I am absolutely mortified

After 31 chapters, I finally go to One Day at a Time(1975) and I find out that Schnieder's name is actually spelled Schn ei der. Oh, the humanity. Can you possibly understand how incredibly embarrassed I am?

It really made me stop and think - Am I really cut out for this blogging thing? I haven't been doing this long, but I do know that a mistake like that can jeopardize your "Official Blogger" certification. I really hope that no one on the "International Blogger Certification Committee" (IBCC) happens to read my blog before I have time to go and find each occurrence of "Schnieder" in the The Break and switch it to "Schn ei der manually and then republish each chapter. I know some one that isn't going to get any sleep tonight.

Could that be the reason that Mark Cuban blew me off and David Lettermen never responded? I betcha it is. They saw a rookie mistake and figured I didn't have what it takes to be associated with them. Bummer. It's a jungle out there in the blogosphere, I tell ya. Don't get involved with this activity unless you can handle the stress of constant scrutiny from every direction. Yes, my loyal readers it's a dog-eat-dog world, but I am up to the challenge - as long as the IBCC doesn't pull my card!

You're having angst over misspelling a sit-com character's name? Get over it. What you should be concerned about is that fact that every time you commit a typo, somewhere a puppy is killed.

Yes, it's ruff out here in Blogsylvania. Ruff, I tell ya.

Ah...there it is. Thanks kristy - it's good to know that I'm not the only one with the twisted sense of humor :-).
