Spelling millen...

"Which should it be? One 'n' or two?"

"Oh I don't know... why don't we have both and then we're bound to have it at least half right..."


Imaginary conversation regarding these signs????

I get my pedants hat on here and say it's not what is nice or what we like that matters, but how you spell the bloody word - two ls and two ns. And to take my anally retentive pedantry to new levels, annawaits should never have put an apostrophe between the n and s!! Oh, and I should never have put two exclamation marks at the end of my last sentence. And I should never have put a comma in front of the "and" in the last sentence, while, of course, I should never have started this sentence with an "And" --- err, I'll get my coat ...

Reidski said...

Argh! And I should have put an apostrophe in between the t and s in pedants! I'm never visiting this site again - I have humiliated myself for the last time!

Blimey, those signs take me back... I bet the Cherry Tree Buildings aren't there any more!

I used to live just off a road that was Sherriff Road at the top and Sherrif Road at the bottom...

Ha. No indeed Stu the Cherry Tree buildings have gone - and the huts at the back of Old Engineering... long gone in the pursuit of further greenery and looking good. Because you know its always better to have not enough rooms for teaching or admin than to have some old buildings hanging about...

Reidski - sorry about delay in replying but Yahoo absolutely bonkers at the mo!

Humiliation? You are welcome here at any time, humiliated or not (hmmm, is it wrong that I have some strange images of you and JJ in my head at the mention of humiliation...? you really should lay off the bondage...)

Sorry, it's a hot Monday morning. Forgive me...

Ah, Nottingham Uni. So much energy expended in the pursuit of such stupid ideas. No money for student facilities, loads of cash for the East Midlands Conference Centre... has it changed much?
