      You’re welcome. 🙂 I started Attachments yesterday afternoon, and I’m about halfway through – I’m really enjoying it so far!
      Aren’t they cool? The artist has tons of literary travel posters (linked on the word artwork). I love the HP tee – it’s so minimal, but it gets the point across. 🙂
      Ack! My name gets mispronounced ALL the time, and I’m betting misspelling is just as annoying. I’m sorry. 😦 I’ve gone back and corrected it.

        I’m really glad you are enjoying Attachments so far!
        Ooo. Definitely going to check out the other artwork.
        That’s alright! I’m used to it. 🙂 I get misspellings AND mispronunciation all the time. Thanks for correcting it!

          Now I’m curious – I’ve been pronouncing your name (in my head) just like Stephanie. Am I right? What kind of mispronunciations do you get?

          I get misspellings too. Sela, Seela (which is actually how it’s pronounced), Cela, Sheila, etc. The problem with pronouncing my name is that other people with the same name pronounce it differently. So I get
          Sell-a, Say-la, Sheila. Oh well.


          • Caught Read Handed says:

            Yeah, it’s pronounced like Stephanie, but you’d be surprised how many people think my name is actually pronounced like Gwen Stefani’s last name. Who would actually name their child Steh-fah-knee? Haha.
            I was right! I was pronoucning your name right in my head!

    Okay, what an interesting thread! My daughter hates that I spelled her “Alyson” (the proper British way) rather than “Allison” because she, too, can’t find her name in those vanity souvenir license plates! But if we’re talking pronunciation of names, mine is the ultimate. Maricel. Mah-ree-sell. How difficult is that?! It’s phonetic. But I get Mary-sell, Mar-sell, Mar-see-ell. Argh.

    Btw, Selah, you are infiltrating my psyche. I’ve been pre-writing next week’s posts and was at a loss for the next WIT feature when I thought of lists and random things and decided to create e subcategory of randomosity for WIT, little realizing that I probably got the idea subconsciously from you. (And that was one heck of a run-on sentence, wasn’t it?) Watch for it tomorrow.
