From oneword.com - "Tomato"
Is this tomato or tomahto? If I can't pronouce the word of the dary correctly I'm not sure how I can be expected to write about it. This is a dilemma and I see no way out of it at this point. I'm trapped while the clock counts down to zero. Waiting... Ding.
What do you think of the phrase, "Is it just me, or . . . " Personally, I'm not crazy about it because I don't know why the person doesn't just say, "I think it's ____". Maybe it's an insecurity thing with the thought being if you say it's too hot and others don't thinkn it's too hot then you might be thought a fool so this provides a safe out. I don't know, maybe it's just me, but no one sharing a thought/feeling should ever be thought foolish unless they're trying to be foolish on purpose.
Valentine's Day is just around the corner and I have a friend who says that NY's Eve is the most depressing day to be single, but I disagree and think it's Valentine's Day.
A couple of weeks ago the depressing news was all about Haiti and partisan politics and now the depressing news is all about snow and partisan politics. Why is the news never about chocolate or mushroom and olive pizza or White Castle hamburgers or unaired first-run episodes of Frasier?
