Just an illusion


Funny how the eyes and brain mislead you when it comes to editing. Just reading this through, I noticed a couple of grammatical errors - and I'm still not convinced I've spelt grammatical right.

I once read a book called 'Angels' by Andrea Newman and it wasn't until months later, while packing to move, that I noticed it was actually called 'Angles.' Bet you had to look twice!

Just for fun (courtesy of hemmy.net) have a look at these words...


The white bits spell OPTICAL while the coloured parts spell ILLUSION


The black is GOOD, the white is EVIL


Teach on top, learn underneath

The opposite of love

Ooh and here's another one, that's not too difficult to understand.........

I'm amazed at how many published pieces actually have mis-spellings and grammatical errors. A friend sent me an autographed copy of his new book--with a grammatical boo boo in the title. I never had the heart to tell him. . .

I couldn't work out why I had an incredibly annoying song in my head all day and I've just realised ... your post title! Remember Imagination and Leeeeee?

Subliminal eh?

They were clever although it took me a while to see 'illusion'.

I remember Leeee from Imagination, my friend had a row with him once at a party.
