Maybe I should rename this weblog, “Jali complaining about every f***ing thing in the world.”
I’ve been in a bad mood all morning and I don’t see the sunlight peeking through the clouds.
Someone just asked me for an “inkpen”. I wasn’t rude, I just handed him a pen while boiling inside.
Redundancy, in general terms, refers to the quality or state of being redundant, that is: exceeding what is necessary or normal; or duplication. (wikepedia)
Redundancy annoys the hell out of me.
For your FYI
For those who don’t know what I’m talking about I guess I’ll break it down:
Pens when used to write on paper use ink. I don’t know of any other liquid that would be of any use.
Automatic Teller Machine. No reason to add an extra “machine”.
Fatally killed. If you’re killed it’s fatal. If it’s fatal you’re dead. It’s like saying “dead, dead”.
For Your Information. Does “for your for your information” sound good to your ear?
Personal Identification Number. Personal identification number number.
The Taco Bell commercial for “carne asada steak” irks me. Carne asada = grilled meat, so does the sentence translated say grilled meat steak? I never studied Spanish but it seems odd to me. If I’m wrong… (you may not want to correct me today)
I always hated, “Ice, ice, baby.” Was it supposed to be a double your pleasure moment listening to Vanilla Ice?
Why do we all say “tuna fish”? Is there any other tuna I’m not familiar with like tuna monkey or tuna rabbit? I’m guilty of this one all the time – see I even annoy myself.
Hopefully I’ll throw off this stinky attitude and come back to write about something positive. Grrrr.
