Creative spelling

I ran into a post on the Vanity Fair website called "Should Vanity Fair Be a Spelling Vigilante?" which asks the question whether the Vanity Fair editors should deviate from regular spelling of strange-looking words and names. Unfortunately, most of the commenters on this post can't seem to take this topic very seriously. That's a shame, because people learning English waste a decade of their lives learning the truly bizarre spelling of that language.

The mute switch issue

The past week there's been a lot of blog talk about an iPhone going off during a performance of the New York Philharmonic. Apparently someone had just had his Blackberry replaced with an iPhone, and when the iPhone alarm went off despite the "ringer/silent" switch set to silent, the poor new iPhone user first of all didn't notice it was his phone interrupting the performance at first, and then had a hard time killing the alarm.

Tramtoerist in Den Haag

Mijn middag als tramtoerist in de regio Haaglanden op zaterdag 13 oktober.

Aan het eind nog een paar tips voor degenen die ook Den Haag per tram willen zien, maar allereerst zou ik op basis van mijn middag gister tramtoerisme van harte willen aanbevelen, zeker als je enige waardering voor architectuur (-geschiedenis) hebt. Het is met name een uitkomst bij wisselvallig weer: bij regen spring je in een tram, als het weer even droog is stap je uit om wat rond te kijken en wandel je een stukje. Let wel op dat de lol er vrij snel vanaf is als het donker wordt, want door de verlichting binnen zie je dan buiten zowat niks meer.
