if i read 'wierd' one more time on a sign, blog, or in the paper, i'm gonna go ballistic. i know the stupid rhyme is 'i before e except after c' but c'mon people...oh, and i also have a book club recommendation for you. it's called the dictionary.
P.S. you'd better not differentiate right from left by holding up your hands and seeing which index finger and thumb make an 'L', either.
