Love the list ;)

The only one on there that I can spell correctly without fail, is caterpillar. But, I cannot, for the life of me, pronounce it properly.

You see, I'm a born and bred California girl. Here in Cali every letter of it is meant to be pronounced e.g. Cat-er-pill-ar. But my grandmother is from New England and taught me to pronounce it cat-ah-pill-ah.

In my lifetime, I have managed to append that final 'r', but have never managed to insert that 'r' sound in the middle - and I doubt I ever will.

Ah well, what are you going to do?

How about mairrage and freind?
I always took it as a bad omen I couldn't spell them properly...

"How about mairrage and freind?"

No, mispelling those is completely unneccesary.

(grinning)I had to look up coliseum, too. And THE coliseum is apparently spelled colosseum. Hmmm...who knew... I'm always screwing up the word "pumpkin" when I write it on paper. I don't know why but I always do...
