No I been sitting here inhaling the sweat aroma of workplace boredom and office politic THC. I'm stuck in here for another hour or so. I intend to hit the Svedka later today. Svedka is surprisingly smooth for as inexpensive as it is. Not quite Grey Goose, but it will do for those of us on a budget.
Language usage gripes : I'm a geek, but I hate it when geeks who pride themselves on their proper use of technical terms, abuse the terms used by all other educated people.
I'm not impressed with Svedka. I like Skyy.
I've never had Skyy, I'll have to give that a try one day. I like Absolute. Vokda bottles have got to be the coollest looking bottles by the way.
Svedka is very good for the money. Iceberg is too, that iceberg water seems to add something unique to it.
Is this a word from the 50s or something? When did it come about?
--Not sure. If I had to guess, I would say that it was probably invented by Fred Franz. I haven't seen it lately, but it used to pop up every few years:
"The results have been happifying. By 1983 the number of publishers had grown to 538" (W97 10/15 p. 27)
"This has led to happifying results, as illustrated by an experience in connection with a letter received by the branch office." (W95 2/15 p. 24)
"Certain success marks the steps that Jehovah God is taking even now to bring to mankind durable and happifying peace, security, and prosperity..." (W92 3/1 p. 9)
"Since Jehovah is the Source of all good and happifying things..." (W91 12/15 p. 8)
Ok, I'll kill it.
My wife says I'm highly critical, and she's right.
Those high falootant words that know it alls like to use to impress people are no different than swear words used by red necked hicks.
It's ineffective, artless verbosity.
Simple, clear language is impressive for its clarity, not for its use of multisyllable words.
dont be getting all fancified with your word selections
if you are in a written communication class....
you get your paper AND your ass handed to you
with the droll commentary: this isn't creative
