proof that English majors are a little OCD...

I was looking over the blog today, trying to come up with new and fascinating things to add to the sidebar (yes, I lead an exciting life, folks!), when I noticed that I used the phrase "nerve-racking" in my last post. This led me to wonder:

"nerve-racking" OR "nerve-wracking"

Naturally, I took the time to look it up on

I was relieved to discover "both spellings are standard."

Unfortunately, now I am wondering if one spelling is preferred.....
