Argh.

I'm writing a proposal. It uses one particular word a lot: regimen.

I keep wanting to type the words either side of it, either regime or regiment. If I do so, of course the spell checker won't notice.

Sounds like my standard spelling of ratio:
R-A-T-I-O-N-BACKSPACE

Ah yes - I am almost incapable of typing 'field' correctly. My finger macro for it now goes 'f' 'i' 'l' 'e' BACKSPACE BACKSPACE 'e' 'l' 'd'.

I can't type "method" without first typing "Methos". Usually I don't capitalize it, but I invariably hit the "s" instead of the "d". Because I am a great big Highlander fanboy geek. :)

I trust you've already encountered said Law? Having deliberately misspelt the title, I thought I needed a prophylactic tag.

My signature is illegible in large part because when I learned to write in cursive, I almost immediately began dropping the "r" from my last name, resulting in things being signed "Catie Muphy". When I got a checkbook, I thought it might be better to have a signature nobody could read rather than one which suggested I couldn't spell my own last name. So yes, I have in fact encountered Muphry's Law. :)

That's at least reasonably understandable, if annoying. What I couldn't figure out was my fingers' habit of typing “pythonk” instead of “python”.

Nope, sorry, can't help you on that one. You're just weird.

My typo bugaboo is "Untied Stats." Totally unobjectionable to Word, but boy do you get funny looks. I've chosen to auto-correct, on the basis that if I ever actually do want to type "untied stats" it would be an exception, rather than the rule.
