An epic quest to find a barista, cashier or clerk who can spell my name correctly -- plus all you wanted to know about the name Cheryl, but were afraid to ask. (Reader submissions encouraged.)

GUEST POST: The many sides of Deven
Here's a special shout out to my friend Deven for not one, but two -- count 'em two -- submissions. (Be sure to check out his delicious food blog at hungrytigernyc.com -- and if you live in New York City, sign up for one of his Grub Crawls.) Plus he also has taken the challenge into a whole new direction by sending me screen shots of text messages from his iPhone (how new millennium of him!)
Since HALF-BINGOS are only for SHERYL, both of these entries technically fall into my category of being a NO CIGAR, that is they're only one letter off from being a correct spelling.
And here's a little gentle reminder to join the Cheryl Revolution and send me misspellings of your name or, if you're game, be bold and proudly tell them your name is Cheryl. [Any guys confident enough to do this will receive plus ten (+10) style points.)
+ = two no cigar awards
And in case you don't get the visual reference for this award, it's Dirk Benedict as Lieutenant Starbuck (how appropriate for this blog, huh?) from the original "Battlestar Galactica."
