Hi there, scooby snacks! Today I present a brief list of words that my browser’s autocorrect thinks are misspelled: WordPress, autocorrect, Kickstarter, and mansplain. Get it together, Chrome! Don’t you know what kind of sites I visit?

Earlier this year I re-read Deathly Hallows and cried for Dobby all over again.
I heart Dobby. It doesn’t help that he and my dog happen to have the same ears.
Your dog got an ear transplant from Dobby?
I cry every damn time….
Yay I knew a comment award worthy comment when I saw one :) Congrats Nina, so proud of you :)
The title said, “Buying Dobby Socks,” but I kept reading it as Scooby Snacks.
ooh, a future title
My phone got stolen last weekend and autocorrect the phone I’m currently using thinks “lesbians” is a word but not “lesbian”, and that “gay” is a word but not “gays”
So apparently lesbians can’t be single, and gays can only be single. Someone feed autocorrect some great stereotypes
Comment award ?
Can you get comment awards from commenting on comment awards?
Comment award inception?
I’m a little sad that my devious plan to arrest the infamous Carmen Sandiego for stealing my heart when I was a little girl didn’t make it into the awards. Or when she stole a kiss as well =^.~=
WooHoo! Carmen SanDiego, got the comment award. Now all we need is a moment of silence for Dobby.
it just occurred to me that this is ‘comfortable hole bye’ Lollll
ahhh effff it’s supposed to be the pic of Erin with her face in the hole in the ground bahahaaha
Omg that totally IS comfortable hole bye. So it’s all come full circle, and Erin can quit the internet
(But, Erin, don’t)
Ok the Context Award made me LOL but can we just appreciate the Dishonorable Discharge pun for a minute?
