Overdose

Things I would be glad to never see or hear again.


** Pregnant celebritites on magazine covers, looking as if they've accomplished something mere mortals cannot.

** Antlers on human beings.

** People who burble on ad infinitum about their "muse". If your muse has taken a vacation, maybe it's because you're supposed to rely on yourself.

** Politically correct statements that mask the truth. PC is not necessarily polite; frequently it's lying. Tell the truth, but tell it in a decent and kind way: think before you speak!

** Yet another television show involving "real" people, wherein they sit in front of a camera and say nasty, stupid, and mean things about other people-- and look so pleased with themselves!

** The word category spelled "catagory". We pronounce it cateh- not catah-gory, so I do not understand the problem. There's a whole list of words I could present here, but I won't!

**Back to TV and film... hearing the expression coup de grace pronounced as coup de grah. Now, would you say "a moment of grah" or a moment of grace??? It's the exact same word, spelled the same way, so again I don't get this. Besides, in French, gras (pronounced grah) means fat, grease. Think about that one!!


Have an impossibly wonderful and funny day!
