Pete's Log: stupid England

More from the "too much time in Europe" file:

I catch myself spelling words with s instead of z more and more often of late.

E.g. prioritisation instead of prioritization, organisation instead of organization, etc.

I have been exposed to more "British English" since moving here, but I don't think that's the primary cause. I think the reason is that equivalent German words are spelled with s, i.e. the German word for organization is Organisation.

Don't worry, though: I'm nowhere near spelling color with a u.

Don't do it! Maybe you should uze extra z's as punishment. If you start saying things like "different to" or calling crackers or cookies "biscuits", we are no longer frienz.
