Yes, that's my name
« on: January 29, 2011, 09:22:02 PM »
A gentleman friend* frequently uses his phone to talk to me on MSN from work while business is slow. He recently purchased an Android, which he finally got up and running last night.

Today he kept typing, deleting, and periodically dropping expletives. Finally, he said "When I type your name, it tries to autocorrect to 'disdain'."

My name isn't even all that similar to "disdain." I guess the Android has my attitude about reality TV, Chinese-American food, and emo music all figured out. :P


*Not stealing your idea here, Juana. Not yet anyway. ;)

Autocorrect makes my real name 'rhinoceros'.

Yeah, my darling husband has me listed as 'a gorgeous rhinoceros' in his phonebook.

so he's listed as 'ace the lemur'
... it might frighten them.
Victoria,

I am off to Facebook to find out which of my friends has a Droid, and what it auto-corrects "Kristin" to. Will report!

ETA: Apparently Droid feels that "Kristin" should be "pristine."

Considering the state of my house, it is to laugh.

Are you familiar with this web site?

It's good for some giggles.

well THAT didn't work. Replace dingdangity with the harsher form of "darn" and you'll get it!
