that was discussed in the 11 easy steps and is one of the exceptions, but not part of the mnemonic :)

There is also: seize, weird, neither, either, foreign, sovereign, forfeit, counterfeit, leisure, heifer, protein, geiger (as in 'counter'), height, sleight, feisty, seismograph, poltergeist, kaleidoscope.
