I had to pop in here and tell you all that it can pay to be obsessive about spelling and grammar. I received a shipping notice from a company and noticed how they'd spelled "recepient." I emailed them, they responded immediately, were appropriately embarrassed, and gave me a $10 credit.

And may I add that the word "Cricut" is one of the reasons I never wanted one.

I you!!! Me too!!!!!

Probably because I was raised on phonetics, but it took me quite a while to understand its real pronunciation and that the "cut" in the word doesn't actually refer to die-cutting. I had originally thought it was supposed to be a clever play on words but I could never figure out the "cri" part. Silly me, lol.
