On misattributing

If you ask my friend Tami, she will tell you that misattributing is her super power. She is, undoubtedly, correct. I'm not too shabby in the misattribution department myself, actually, but unlike Tami I cannot claim it as a super power, since it's frequently not intentional.

Would flying still be Superman's super power if he didn't mean to do it? Hmm... Maybe.

Anyway. Today's misattribution can be found in the top right corner of this blog. It's a pumpkin that says "Join us!". And then above it, the title says "Na BLOW Rimo". I don't know who Rimo or Na is, but I have a feeling that by encouraging you all to joining them, this just went from a family friendly blog to whatever the alternative is...

(Actually, it's not a misattribution. See, I don't even know what it is! Would flying still be Superman's super power if he didn't know what flying was?)

Seriously, though. Don't read the title of that little pumpkin with your head in the gutter like I did. It says NaBloWriMo, but the seEminGly RanDoM capital letters gets all wonky because my blog design is set on ALL CAPITAL LETTERS for gadget titles. So there. NaBloWriMo is ON, baby, because by now it's a tradition. And Heather promised cupcakes.

Ahahaa When I first saw it I must admit to 'gutterage' but that's part of the fun right?

Happy writing!

Well it isn't on my view of your thingy - it is all caps. I kind of liked what was suggested though - I think Nancy Atilla should blow Rimoldo Bonaparte. what the what???

I also misread a couple of times and had to check my writing to make sure the capital is where it should be.

fun post though. have a lovely day.

Blogging everyday sounds hard. It's challenging enough to blog five days a week for me.

It does look a little odd...

Good luck with the challenge!
