just read my message please forgive the spelling can spell
I cringe every time I read mine!!! I think we should ask Jackie for a spell check feature!!!! You are not alone in the spelling department. I wouldn't have made it through school without spell check!
I second that!
Me too! I just saw my last post and instead of transfer I spelled trasnfer!!! Idiot!! LOL
I thought it was cake decorators shorthand!
Sometimes there are just simple typing errors but spelling the english language is not easy by any means.
I do cringe every time I see "refridgerate" (which is frequently) or any form thereof...there is NO D in the word refrigerator, refrigerate, refrigeration, and only one D in refrigerated! I guess this has to come from "fridge" meaning refrigerator, in which case there is a D!
The funniest typo I've seen yet is "smiple", I think we need to adopt this word, it just cracks me up!
Thank You!!!! LOL....I also cringe when refrigerator gets a D added to it I make my share of typos too I am sure!
Wow, I didn't even know thats how you spell refrigerator(I think I spelled it right)!
Come to think of it WHY do we add a D when we write fridge???? A condensation perhaps of frigidaire? sp* I think they were the originators of the fridge...lol
Yes, Frigidaire was one of the first, and that is where fridge came from, but I don't know why it was spelled that way... somebody probably misspelled it at the beginning and it has just stayed that way forever! Janice
veejaytx & KayDay: i've always felt weird spelling it "refridgerate", but then i've always thought that if the short form is "fridge", then the whole word MUST have a D, but i've never felt entirely confident about that -- good to know where the D comes from...according to the M-W online dictionary, fridge is a shortened & altered form of "refrigerate", and your suggestion about frigidaire looks pretty good to me.
veejaytx: how about "smiple", noun, meaning: a relatively easy word misspelled as a result of quick typing in online forums.
yes, english spelling is fun, and can be quite perilous at times. i hope no one is too bothered when they see my canadian U in words like "colour".
THAT'S WHY I CALL IT AN ICEBOX!!!!!
lol tcturtleshell... we're from hickville.. who'd expect us to call it anything other than "icebox"
when i think of louisiana i dont think of hicks. unfortunatly(sp) wheni t hink of texas i think of hicks.
I'm a hick all right!! I think TX/Louisiana should be one state!!!!
Hey! I beg to differ! I think that here in Alabama we INVENTED " hickism"...and when everyone isn't busy sleeping with their brother....hehe...(JK!!) we practice getting hickiness down to an art! And we also throw out a few good American Idol contestants!!!
hmmm well i think you have a point there. Most people around here joke that the only way you can tell louisiana from texas is that in louisiana you can gamble.
LOL Susan!!! I've heard that from Texans too!!
Ya'll are so silly!!!
I think every state has it's share of "hicks", just different names for their "hickisms".
You mentioned the Canadian u in words, that does distract me a little, and my spellcheck goes nuts when I copy and paste a recipe so I can print it!
Yeppers, we could use spellcheck here on Cake Central, but we will manage without it I'm sure.
From an email I received (and posted previously) it doesn't matter what order letters are in as long as they are all there and the first and last letters are correct, we are still able to read them! Janice
Simply transposing a letter does not bother me as much as not knowing the difference between the following:
1. There, their, and they're.
2. You're and your.
3. Who's and whose.
Transposing letters and ending up with a typographical graphical error pales in comparison to not knowing which word is appropiate. As for the fridge, it's most likely a result of people mispronouncing refrigerator and simply spelling it as they pronounce it.
Frigidaire is simply a combination of Frigid + Air (e).
my best friends dad is the biggest redneck hick i have ever met. When ever people refer to others as hick i picture him. LOL so TC i can not imagine you as a hick. If i could i think we would all be having some major problems.lol
Ok...since we're on spelling I will never forget my 8th grade teacher saying alot is NOT a word! It's a lot. Tha't about the only thing I spell correctly!
Speaking of hicks... I was at a party tonight where a girl said "I tumped that over, and we all knew what she meant! We also hear .... fixen to.... ya'll........and gonna ( as in.. I'm gonna do that!)
who here uses the word yonder????? lol like them boys is over yonder!!! lmao
Well I'm from Wyoming and proud to say I am a hick! We have lots of them here too! I pretty much grew up on a horse and wouldn't have it any other way. That's why I named my business Cowgirl Custom Cakes. Just thought I should represent all the hicks from Wyoming!
hicks arent bad people. We should all be proud. Although im not sure i am a hick. Raised in the city, i dont have any animals unless you count the kids. lol i do say yall and fixen. So maybe im a mixture of city girl and hick.
omg, lmao @ myself. hearing ya'll talk about hicks and rednecks,, I am trying to go back over every one of my post and look at how COUNTRY or Redneck or hickish they are .. Omg, Tooo FUNNY! Its too late ya'll already know I am southern.. ya'll will have to over look me,, and if you need any more of the southern Slang,, Hollar at me! hehehehe
You haven't experienced hickdom until you have a person tell you "I'm gonna carry you out to dinner!"
or give you directions and say "its at the corner where the 'soandso's barn' used to be!" (My 80 year old stepfather in East Texas says these all the time!)
Fixin' and gettin' ready are standards as far as I'm concerned, right up there with ya'll! I'm a city girl myself, but have heard these terms all my life!
I was talking to someone last night & I told her We's (we is) fixin to head on home!!!!!!!!!! I caught myself after I said that & was shocked that I said that!! I'm talking more & more country since we've moved to Bossier. I'm from around Nathchitoches & we talk pretty fast down there. Still country but fast. Up in Bossier they talk slow & very country & it's a large city! Go figure!
tc. You're from Natchitoches? I have family there!
Down here in the swamp, we're not really called hicks, we're called coonasses!!!
