Brain Sprain from typos!

Ack! Ack! ACK!  My mom, former English and music teacher, sent out a lovely family Christmas letter - with TWO typos.  She does the letter on a friend's computer, and I KNOW there is a spell checker - but Nooooooooo....  And this is the third year in a row that the letter has had typos.  I volunteered to proof read it, but that didn't fly.  *sigh*

I know love overcomes all - but typos? I dunno!?!?!??!?!?!?!

And then I read a very good fanfic that had a glaring (to me?) error.  So far, no one else has mentioned it in the comments to the posting.  But, it is just soooooo wrong.  This error is not just a typo; it is more of a science error - and a grade school level error at that.  I even thought of a funny way to point out the error but now I think I'll just keep quiet.  I know that most authors appreciate concrit - which I think this is *shrug* but I surely don't want to upset anyone (author or readers) and I definitely don't want any flaming to occur!

Who knew that editing errors would make me so crazed? I believe I could do a Rodney McKay impersonation complete with raving if I am not careful.   I know I've made my share of writing errors, no doubt about it - but ... Ack Ack ACK!!!!  I can't shut off my brain's editor function!!!!!

P.S. Happy Holidays to all.   Hmmm, if typing wrong yields "typos" does gifting the wrong item yield "giftos"???
