Best-named Honeymoon Destination Ever

Nooki Nooki Island

In other news, NYT blogger Anahad O'Connor dedicated today's post to some typos in the menu at a White House dinner. "Willamette Valley" was spelled wrong in a wine description, "chickpeas" was written as two words and elsewhere there was one missing hyphen and one missing accent mark.

The point: "One person the White House apparently neglected to hire was a spell checker."

Too bad the wine wasn't from Molehill Winery. Then O'Connor could have bemoaned how no one changed it to Mountain Winery.

Yeah really, those are so minor. Except for the misspelling of the wine, who really cares? Am I a bad proofreader for saying that?

The whole thing reeks of "slow news day."

And there are no bad proofreaders, only bad proofreadees.

Similarly, I just saw an ad for a new electronic reader, competing with's Kindle. They call it the "Nook" E-reader. Say it fast...

I always wonder whether stuff like that is on purpose. Then I usually decide that, yes, it is.

I bet those will have the most Danielle Steele downloads.
