What do you mean by 'Situate'? Is that a place?

Autocorrect got me one day in a chat with one of my friends when we were discussing how Tom Hooper's inoffensive historical junk beat The Social Network in the 2011 Oscars. We laughed about the typo and it became an inside joke.

I don't understand that, would you mind explaining it? I feel like missing a wordplay, being the non-native speaker I am :)

Ok, so it's a town in Rhode Island. I'll add it to my list of places to visit in the USA. :)

Eh, there are better places in RI to visit. I actually wouldn't rec Scituate; maybe try Providence, Charlestown, or Adamsville/Little Compton instead. :)

I must've been in a silly mood when I typed that. It's something I'd say if I were.

Basically, I'm calling myself out for not being original or clever, even though I may think I am sometimes.

I'm a theatre composer and I lifted my name from the lyrics of a tune from an obscure musical called, "The Golden Apple."

I learned the source of Walter's name when I saw the real Double Indemnity in December. Until then, I assumed it was his real name.

That's the problem with me and having seen so many of the more important classics about 10-15 years ago - I don't remember a single thing about them and have to rewatch everything one day. Then I can continue with digging deeper, then repeat the classics. etc.
It's such a cool feeling to finally encounter the (real) source of a reference you know for years. :sweat:
