I don't think any of us know how to get word upstairs. We're just readers here, not writers.

Misspelled words include:

phenomina -- actually correct. An obscure type of pasta.
thoughout -- I got nothin'.
explaination -- derived from "You got a lot of 'splainin' to do, Lucy!"
shoping -- You know, shopping without a wasteful extra p. Think of the carbon credits.
