Call For Typos

Hmmm...

Just flicking through the books to remind myself of some details/dates, and I stumbled across a typo. I know there are a few in the books- it's kind of inevitable when the deadlines are this close together- but by the time the new paperback editions are published in April, I want all these typos to be fixed. Which is where YOU come in, my Minions.

I know that most of you have read these books a few times because you're, you know, insane and everything.  Have you noticed the typos? Can you remember where they were? There are a few glaring ones, mistakes that I just should have caught, but for whatever reason I didn't. Care to help?

When my friends hamster escaped it was behind the washing machine.

Sarthacus Bolt said...

Dragona Pine said...

Wonka said...

Dragona Pine said...

Now nobody touch it... it is perfect...

Darkane Claw said...

My hair is just really annoying, it has grown back to the same length it was 2 weeks ago before I got it cut.

Sarthacus Bolt said...

OHMYGOD!!!


My hair at the front of my head goes down t omy top lip!!!

Dragona Pine said...

Yeh Wonka, you're a girl... girls hair is generally straight... not spikey...

Wonka said...

Darkane Claw said...

Dragona, you shouldn't have said that,

*grabs a water gun and sprays Dragona's hair.

Dragona Pine said...

Mine doesn't go that far... mine is short, it doesn't even reach my eyes... but I have it spiked up every day :D

Darkane Claw said...

My fringe goes to the tip of my nose.

Dragona Pine said...

*laughs at Darkane's useless attack to wreck my hair*

It's waterproof and bounce-back gel :D

Lizzy (Bridget Whiplash) said...

*musses Dragona's hair* i like my hair, its ever so slightly emo, and VARY wavy

Darkane Claw said...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XN2FrUUq-zI&NR=1

^^^^^ AWESOME SONG!!!!! (rise against)

Dragona Pine said...

I like my hair... very spikey...

Lizzy (Bridget Whiplash) said...

My bangs come to my chin.

Dragona Pine said...

I can see my breath :P

Darkane Claw said...

Dragona, you shall forever look like jedward to me now.

Wonka said...

hes not there!!!

Dragona Pine said...

No it's nowhere near like Jedward... I'm not blonde and it isn't that spikey... maybe slightly like Fletchers...

Wonka said...

Jedward? what the hell?

Darkane Claw said...

My hair is in a bob to and I have an slightly emo fringe that covers my eyes

Lizzy (Bridget Whiplash) said...

hmmm... do you know where Sarthacus went? i need to ask him something

Wonka said...

Fletcher's hair is insanely spikey, Dragon Boy

Dragona Pine said...

No... a tiny bit less spikey than Fletchers... still pretty spikey though...

Lizzy (Bridget Whiplash) said...

My hair is ALWAYS tied back, ether with an elastic or a bandanna

Darkane Claw said...

I hate Jedward, they turned down a running scholar ship for the x factor and they can't even sing, THEY SUCK!!!!

Dragona, then your hair is probably like my brothers.

Wonka said...

hy hair is straight (sometimes cos it is naturally wavy but i blow dry and straighten so it stays straight until i get it wet), it is dark brown, sorta armpit length and i have a slightly emo fringe but only when i flick it into my face

Darkane Claw said...

I can't tie my hair up, I fail epically if I try.

Dragona Pine said...

I dunno... it's just very spikey hair...

Wonka said...

soooo... we are now talking about HAIR.....

Darkane Claw said...

Well Dragona started it

Wonka said...

i tie my hair up when it annoys me (in art class, pe, homework times, drama, and maths)

Dragona Pine said...

Yeh why can't we talk about something more interesting than hair?

Wonka said...

oh and when im on computer sometimes.

Wonka said...

who here has cold ears??

Lizzy (Bridget Whiplash) said...

if i tie my hair back with my tie-dye bandanna, and then put in my HUGE gold hoops, i'll look like a hippy :D

Wonka said...

you DID start it, Dragon Boy.

Wonka said...

i am a goppemo

Dragona Pine said...

I have cold ears!

It's freezing up here in Yorkshire... I can see my breath...

Wonka said...

goth/hippy/emo

Sarthacus Bolt said...

What is it, Lizzy?

Wonka said...

i have cold fingers. and i stuck my head out my window when i woke up this morning (10am) and my nose almost froze off

Dragona Pine said...

Why when someone mentions hair, do all the girls start talking how they do theirs?

Darkane Claw said...

AWESOME!!! MY MUM JUST TOLD Me SHE MIGHT BE GETTING ME MY OWN DISCUS!!!

Lizzy (Bridget Whiplash) said...

Wonka said...

Dragona Pine said...

We ALWAYS get snow... I once fell into a 7ft drift... not handy when I'm 6ft 3 and a half... but people say it'll be snowing within a few weeks...

Wonka said...

A Dragon Boy, yes they do. i am a girl, i should know. i try NOT to, but its like, reflex

Darkane Claw said...

Wonka said...

Darkane Claw said...

We never get snow that sticks on the ground, it always rains and makes it slush

Wonka said...

Dragona Pine said...

*random rocket comes from nowhere, lands in the ground and unfolds to reveal a pair of sunglasses, Dragona puts on the sunglasses*


"Your mission, if you choose to accept it is to get a gf by valantines day"

I don't accept it...

"This message will self destruct in five seconds"

*throws the glasses away as they blow up with mission impossible music going on in the background*

Wonka said...

Darkane Claw said...

Lizzy (Bridget Whiplash) said...

Wonka said...

Wonka said...

Dragona Pine said...

Lizzy (Bridget Whiplash) said...

Wonka said...

Dragona Pine said...
