I have a small (really minor in the scope of world priorities) problem. My spelling, which was never anything to write home about in the first place, has gotten worse.
Five years ago I went to work for a company which uses U.K. English. I had to learn how to spell all over again. I may have been too successful, now instead of being a bilingual speller, I find I can't get my typing fingers to remember how to spell "American" which means I'm wearing out the delete key on my keyboard. There is still hope for me, I haven't yet found a reason to start a sentence with "whilst."
As I said - a very small problem, but one that has been driving me crazy this week (and don't get me going on my inability to master the metric system - why oh why doesn't the US education system spend more time on this, or probably more accurate, why I didn't I pay more attention.)
What has been driving you crazy this week?
One thing that hasn't driving me crazy is this great song recommendation from the awesome Kristine at Blue Elephant Photography:
