I absolutely hate the word "utilize". What is wrong with "use"? We're doing peer revisions in our writing class right now, and the 2 papers I'm revising both use the word "utilize" to excess. Of course, I define "excessive use of the word utilize" as writing or saying it more than one time during one's entire lifetime, so my judgement here might be clouded. Just by writing this post, I've used up my lifetime "utilize" quota, along with those of 4 or 5 of my closest friends.
Made of Honor: Making Me Sick.
Regarding the new movie "Made of Honor": First of all, the attempted pun in the title does not work. It might possibly work if there were a mafia angle, as in "made man". That's not my real objection, however. My REAL objection is to the fact that the entire plot seems to turn on the cow-eyed stupid disingenuously innocent girl whose "best friend" is a guy and who has NO IDEA that the guy wants to sleep with her. "Whaaaaat? He finds me attractive in this lingerie? Get outta town! He doesn't look at me THAT way! He's my BEST FRIEND!" Gag. Retch. Vom.Imitation Genuine Leather
Someone found my blog today using the search term "knock-off Buxton Organizer", which I suppose led them to this post. And that's all I have to say about that.
