Stop the presses, or cyberspace or whatever....Mary just asked me how to spell "eerie." If there's one thing I am good at it is spelling "eerie." Nope. No 'y's." Strangely enough. Yes, two "e's." Weird as that looks. Eerie is sure an eerie looking word. I have a perfect record, every since gradeschool, which is odd because I am a lousy speller. However, for our class newspaper, back in my gradeschool days, I wrote a Halloween poem which of necessity employed the word eerie and got it grievously wrong. Now I had a string of excellent teachers back then. And my teacher took me aside and explained how to spell "eerie" and then she said, as if pronouncing an incantation, "You will always know how to spell eerie from now on. You will never forget." And she was right. Granted, it not like being given "the Power" or something but still...Only I'm damned if I remember which teacher it was....
