Spell Check's Asian Connection

In my computer lives a subtle and slightly demented gnome who's job it is to futz with my spelling. He's in charge of spell check and he delights in making decent sentences seem like they come from the mad-lib hall of fame. Today, while writing my "Thanksgiving Day" post I was talking about how I love the holidays and how my house is filled with the "smell of nutmeg and cinnamon". When I ran it through spell-check I found I had misspelled "cinnamon" (as I usually do). I chose the default without looking and then saved my changes and previewed the result. Imagine my surprise when I discovered that my house is filled with the smell of nutmeg and Chinamen. I definitely need to take a break. Maybe I'll go for a wok.
