not so much "imperfect" as "having character"?

Follow the bouncing ball...

One *can't be -in-cheek about this! Nobody's by-ing no stinkin' brijes dat ain't already there for them to uze - spamming the globe for the thrill of Victoria and -gony of defeat.

Being safe and sorry at the same time leaves the whole more character than perfection idea up the puddle with crick.

Very few sitting at a round table will think about the copier used (human or not) to reduce the minutes.

Attempts to *define obscurity are best left to the "artist".

I'm fine. Just fine. Perfectly calm. The quintessence of serenity. Ommmm.....

the one constant thorn in my side, and will probably end up as the epitaph on my (misspelled, no doubt) headstone.

Well, Sweet Max, you could: change your name to something unmistakable; or--pre-order your headstone so you can "edit"
it!
There's a popular--make that frequent--ad on TV here, whose
"signature" line is, "What do you want on your Tombstone?"

"I don't care what they say about me, long as they spell my name right."

Beg to differ.

(a) I care truly, madly, deeply what they say about me (and let's face it AnnaS, don't we all, underneath); and

(b) I hate it when they spell my name right - that's because on the rare occasion it is spelt correctly I don't get to add to my lovingly compiled collection (currently up to 42 and still growing) of mutations of my admittedly unusual, not to say ridiculous, surname. This week's favourite: 'Godslam'. I only accept, BTW, variants which are, to the best of my knowledge and belief, genuine fractured attempts at salutation, received in print. As I post this, they beam at me from the noticeboard behind this screen, reminding me of who I appear to be.

Oh, no, you did NOT do this! ...did you?

As my brother-in-law can no doubt attest, Stig is unmistakeable as a name, in the sense that he is the only Stig he knows, but it still gets misspelled or mispronounced on a regular basis!

Clearly the brother of Jude the Obscure.
A Hardy fan are you Max?
