Word of the day: Smenita

No, it's not a real word. It's one of those word-verification nonwords that Blogger has you type in, to keep out comment spam.

I tried to leave a comment on another blog this morning and got what certainly looks like smenita to me. I typed it in and was refused. Usually when that happens, Blogger comes up with a new word. Not this time--again, smenita. Still no luck, and again the same word.

Hmm, I thought. Perhaps that's not smenita. Maybe it's srnenita.

Nope. One more attempt and ... nope.

So I gave up.

Regular visitors Peter and God Is My Co-dependent left comments for the post below. I attempted to reply and, you guessed it, got smenita again. And it still won't take, so I can't comment on my own damned blog. Is this some odd cache hiccup? I can't figure it out.

For the record, my comment was:
Peter: I used to love Tom Waits, but he completely lost me post-"Rain Dogs." It all sounds like random clanging and growling to me now. (Grrrrrrrrrrrrr CLANG! CLANG! CLANG! grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr CLANG!)

God Is My Co-dependent: Everything you know is wrong.

UPDATE: God Is My Co-dependent points out I'm not the only one. Smenita! Smenita!! Smenita!!!

Turning off word verification for the time being.

The only thing I know is that Benjamin Franklin was the only President of the United States who was never President of the United States! Scary, huh?

My blog torments me constantly with ever-changing word verification. It takes three tries sometimes before I can get it to post. The worst part about it is that they are making me verify words that aren't really words.
