gruesomeness reigns aka BAD WRITING

And now for a bit of gruesome writing, off a newsletter that I receive......whowhatwear.com

"Awards shows are always a bit nerve-racking for the nominees, however for the 67th annual Golden Globe awards show held this past Sunday at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, the uncharacteristically gloomy and rainy Los Angeles sky also made the already high-wattage dressing even more dramatic! While we were initially worried that the weather would result in bland—or practical, which is even worse—red carpet offerings, happily our anxiety was for naught! Our lovely ladies chicly weathered the literal and metaphorical storm with bells on and we couldn't be happier to bring you all of the attendant details about our favorite fashionable ensembles."

Honestly, people who write such crap should be banned from mis-using words like "metaphorical". Its way too cool for these chicks.

There, I've had my say. And I feel so much better.

Can we ban "chicly" while we're at it? :p

I know! yes PLEASE! Unbelievable stuff. Important to have comparisons, so we know not everyone is a George Orwell. Far from it in this case.

Thanks for stopping by btw. How are things going with you?
