TEAL - Typo Eradication Advancement League


Two guys, armed with Sharpies, Wite-Out, chalk and markers, traveling the country, correcting typographical errors.


Finding typos is my life! I derive such satisfaction, along with my frustration and irritation, from finding typos. DH teases me that I can't read anything without finding something wrong, either a grammatical error or a typo or even an error in content (believe it or not, Dante did not write Paradise Lost!). I've caught the heroine's eyes changing from blue to green (sans contacts!), her name changing from chapter 1 to chapter 3, the sun rising over the Pacific Ocean (which I suppose could technically happen if the story took place in Hawaii, but the heroine was on the beach next to the Pacific Coast Highway in California!), etc.

Typos are all over and no one cares. No one.

It drives me NUTS. So nuts that if I post a blog entry and find a type later on, I'll actually open the entry and correct it. (IF I see it - if you find one, let me know so I can correct it!) When I hit "send" in an email and miss a misspelling or a grammatical error, it's enough to ruin my day. I will beat myself up over it for an hour!

Okay, I have to go!!!

I am fanatical about typos and misspelled words. I, too, will re-read a blog post and if I find an error? I will immediately go and fix it.

One thing that irks me? There is NO spell check on the comments section!!!
