Everyone hold the phone:

I managed to spell entrepreneurial correctly in one try for the first time in my life.

Alas, it did not make me an entrepreneur.

Regardless, therealsnape is clearly leaving her mark.

(Random short post is random. I'm just proud, all right? :S )

I'm just proud, all right?

As you should be. I don't think I've ever spelled it correctly once in my life. Thank god for spell checks.

I gave it my regular half-hearted attempt and then sat there inspecting the word, asking myself, "Why does this look wrong?"

I pondered. "Am I writing this in Notepad?"

I confirmed it was Livejournal. "Is the Firefox spell-check broken?"

I typed a random string of key-smash much like this: alskdjfgh. Red squiggly line.

"Where is the red line?" I asked myself. It failed to appear as I typed the dreaded word--en-tre-pre-neu-ri-al--yet again. I blinked.

I Googled it. I sat and stared in shock.

It looked wrong because it was right and there was no red squiggly line to be had.

On this day, I have defeated a word. It feels good.

(This is an epic tale, hence all the spaces. You understand.)

Hahahaha. I prefer to think of it as "successfully courting" a word tbh. Epic tale indeed, however. Completely understand.

Well stated. I have successfully courted a word after at least a decade of previously unsuccessful wooing.

There's nothing quite like seducing one's own language...

Congratulations and well done!

I'm proud my sufferings as secretary of the entrepreneurial club weren't in vain.

That was precisely what I was thanking. Well-deserved pride. I owe you and your Rolanda much, it seems.
