Tweedle Dee Dictionary, Part 6

Sequences: Contrary to popular belief - this does not mean a succession; set of things belonging next to one another. In this case, it is the plural of a circular spangle attached to clothing. i.e. sequins.

Then there's people who post on their brother's blog, using the word "subconscious" when the correct word is actually "subconscience." Duhh!

Are you referring to my post about the sleep workshop? Because that was me commenting to my brother's comment on MY blog.

FYI: according to the OED and Merriam-Webster, the word is subconscious. There is NO entry for subconscience.

Subconscious: part of the mind that is not fully conscious but is able to influence action

Conscience: moral sense of right and wrong, esp. as felt by a person and affecting his behaviour
