Alternate Spellings of Names

Do you know what really chaps my ass?  Alternate spellings of first names.  Using my first name as an example, Shaun, Shawn, and, God help us, Chone, are unacceptable spellings of Sean.  If it is good enough for Sean Connery, it is good enough for everyone.

This alternate spelling of Jennifer is the Queen of Alternate Spellings. What. The. Fuck.  I am not sure what is more offensive:  The way she spells her name, that she lists her profession as Child Caretaker/Magician’s Assistant, or that she lists her greatest accomplishment as, and I quote, “Being able to enrich the lives of others through dance has been my greatest aspiration.”  The sad thing is that she is good looking enough that guys have been telling her that it is cool that she spells her name that way in a desperate attempt to get in her pants.

On to beer: Oskar Blues Old Chub is a scotch ale with a malty caramel body and a smoky aftertaste.  It pours a deep mahogany with a cafe au lait colored head, a rich velvety mouthfeel, and a touch of coffee and chocolate in the aroma.  I am generally not a fan of scotch ales, not hoppy enough for me, but this is a good one.  Another winner from Oskar Blues, 7/10.

    There is a weatherman in AZ who spells his name Sean and pronounces it “Seen”. To top it off, he has a brother Shaun pronounced – yup you got it.
