Knightly Aspirations

My Peculiar Aristocratic Title is:
Her Noble Excellency Barbara the Coherent of Bumpstead under Carpet
Get your Peculiar Aristocratic Title

Another one just for fun, picked up from Hedgie, Julie and every one else!

I think this meme generator picks up on the fact that deep down, we all like to think of ourselves as faintly noble and raised from the general masses in some respect.

Wearing a ridiculous name is one way of establishing it.

Thanks Bumpstead, this is cool - I am spreading the word!

Whaddayamean, THINK of ourselves as noble - we are noble - well, I most certainly am!

Interesting ...
Have enjoyed catching up on your posts - re the it's and its - I got caught out on that one too. Just like you I had a faulty internal editor because I did know the rule, just didn't spot it in my writing. It's a very, very, very, very common error - don't beat yourself up about it - just beat the editor for being so bloody superior about it!

Thanks for the vote of confidence CB, at least I know I'm in fine company :)

I there was me thinking the Queen had recognised the right sort of person for once!

On the "its and it's", don't beat yourself up, that particular editor sounds like the Brian Sewell of poetry! With chemobrain I now suffer from word confusion, "they're" and "there" being a common one, my brain goes for soundalikes and my eye can no longer spot the mistakes at the same sitting.

Maybe you should share submissions with a trusted pal before sending them in, it's amazing what a fresh pair of eyes will catch.

Here to 2007 and more success for you. Looking forward to news of your book.
