Proof reading … it matters.

That being said (or written) I nearly always have a typo when I post something like this. I guess it’s sort of like getting my just deserts … hah! … that was on porpoise, I promise!

Dr. Henry Morgan is portrayed by Welsh actor Ioan Gruffudd. Americans might remember him on the big screen as Lt. John Beales in Black Hawk Down or Mister Fantastic in Fantastic Four. But before making it in Hollywood, Gruffudd was an accomplished oboist in his teens. He played in the South Glamorgan Youth Orchestra for several years and he also won prizes for his high baritone signing. He credits his early musical career for his confidence as an actor today.

I read it here. ;-)

UPDATE
In case you don’t read comments, I’ve been educated on the whole “just deserts” thing and while I thought I was being funny I wasn’t. Who knew? Glad to have this bit ‘o knowledge. Let’s see if I can remember it.

In the usage “…just deserts,” “deserts” is indeed the correct spelling. It has nothing to do with “dessert,” the after-meal treat, but instead is a different word that derives from a French ancestor to our word “deserve.”
