You know you're really anal when... get offended by a quiz result claiming that you have poor grammar and misspell things.

What Type of Harry Potter Badfic Are You?

I do not! You take that back! *sniffle*

This brings up something I had wanted to mention a while back. I am, in fact, a freak. Of late, I've been getting this great rush of pride when I write a really long LJ post and have no typos or misspellings in it. I know such things can be caught and corrected by the spell checker, but I like that I find them first.

And speaking of which, the word "spell checker" annoys me. It seems like it should be one word (spellchecker), or at the very least hyphenated (spell-checker), but the correct way seems to be two words (spell checker). Two words seems so wrong. Kind of like "sign up". Two words? One? Hyphenated?

I was really happy when I found compound adjectives (or rather, that there was a term for that type of thing). I think that there should be a "compound noun" for things like spell checker and sign up.

Yes. Enough rambling for tonight.

Edited to add: Bittersweet Potion (or rather, the sequel 'Procul His') has been updated! Yay! They seem to have set up a mailing list going. I don't see a sign-... eh, sign up address, so maybe just write to the person who sent it (alchemia_dent @ -- remove the spaces).
