BlackBerry Says What?

Beware: I sail under this flag with my swashbucklin' crew... Arrr!

Like so many others, I am addicted to my “CrackBerry.” But sometimes it gets a little pushy and overbearing, particularly when it is spell-checking my emails!

For example, here’s an email I *almost* sent to my partner in crime last Friday evening:

Hi April,

Happy weekend! This afternoon the Makers threw me a surprise bray party – complete w/chocolate pH ice cream cake and Guineas! You would’ve loved it 🙂

Okay, onto the serious shining: Resolution Be Better Loggers (bib: I guess it’s the “Beyond” in Bed, Bath and…)! If you can take Mind and Wed, I can take Tues and Thugs, and we have a reader-submitted pig for Photo Variety. Gay! A full week of blockage! Sound double?

Here’s what I actually wrote *before* the Blackberry got a hold of it:

Hi April,

Happy weekend! This afternoon the MoCo’ers threw me a surprise bday party – complete with chocolate pb ice cream cake and Guinness! You would’ve loved it 🙂

Okay, onto the serious shiznit: Resolution Be Better Bloggers (BBB: I guess it’s the “Beyond” in Bed, Bath and…)! If you can take Mon and Wed, I can take Tues and Thurs, and we have a reader-submitted pic for Photo Phriday. Yay! A full week of bloggage! Sound doable?

The lessons?

1) Misspellings aren’t always the lesser of two evils.

2) BlackBerry’s aren’t the boss of me.

3) And “Yay” is a word, damn it!

  1. Huh?

    • Interesting: “huh” is an acceptable word in BlackBerry’s Kingdom of Correctness.

  2. I have struggled with this for years – Yay! Yeah! Apparently, blackberry has weighed in and all such outbursts should be marked with a jubilant Gay!

    • Yes! All happiness shall now be denoted with the word “Gay!”

      For example: “Yay! Congrats to my friends Sheila and Bonnie on their marriage!” shall now become “Gay! Congrats to my friends Sheila and Bonnie on their marriage!”
      BlackBerry, you have all the answers!

  3. I cannot decide which autocorrect I like best. These are great!

    • And there are SO many more where those came from! Who is in charge of this? Shenanigans are afoot for sure…

  4. There are days that I simply LOVE reading your blog! And I don’t have a Blackberry…

    • Gay! Thanks for the feedback, Rachel 🙂

      • Or should I say “Yuppie!!”… BlackBerry’s version of Yippee!
