"Smekday" Now a Legitimate Word...

...according to Google, at any rate. Some time ago I mentioned to my wife that it would be a big deal to me if Google ever stopped asking "Did you mean someday?" whenever Smekday is entered in a search. And I've just noticed that they've stopped asking. And Google defines reality now, right?

Perhaps Google knows something we don't know? Hmmmm...curious. Bidding for control of the airwaves, worming its way into each of our homes straight through our very computer monitors...right through our keyboards into our sensitive yet ignorant fingertips!?!???!!! Perhaps we should begin to call this "search engine" by another name? "Smekkle"? It's a Smek conspiracy I tell you!!!! Run for the hills! Save yourselves!! We could be days away from total slavery! What day is it anyway? Boovember 30th...HEY, wait a minute!

well, smekday is the nicest kind of reality, so...i guess that's alright. :)

corn, corn, corn! fuel, fuel, fuel! (that's an enthusiastic hello from a smallish fan here!)

That's very exciting! I remember the day things started popping up when I typed Arrolynn into Google...although it still asks if I meant Carolyn...I have a feeling that someday soon there will be a baby boom of Arrolynn's all over.

Congrats! Only a matter of time before Webster's starts including it.

Google has a way to go itself. My handwriting recognition software always wants to change Google to Foozle.

I remember getting those "someday" suggestions for Smekday.
I think it has something to do with how many times a "new word" is searched for that it appears without suggested corrections. And that, sir, IS a good thing!
