The combination of being ill and doing construction in the computer area of the house this past week has kept me from logging into wordpress. I haven’t quit blogging. Soon I’ll feel up to par and my desk will return (I am currently juggling a cup of coffee and balancing my laptop on my…lap.)
Something irrelevant to being sick and construction is the annoyance of certain phrases. This topic was discussed on XE a few weeks ago where I explained my dislike of the phrase, “It is what it is.” And now I want to add another, here, because the topic has left the XE forum and because it gives me something to blog about.
This is one of the most stupid and non nonsensical and definitely overused phrases used today. Here is why I think so: Women rarely make history. Don’t think this is a men vs. women issue. Men rarely make history too. Poorly behaved women rarely make history. People, as individuals rarely make history. But you will see this quote thrown around, on facebook especially, as though it is prolific. It’s not. But it seems that females will use this as an ‘in yo face’ feminist motto. I’ll agree, some poorly behaved gals make history. But forgive me for believing that it’s a stupid quote by which to live.
