Owww, My Eyes!

I don't know why, let's call it today's dose of PMT, but I just read this as someone's 'byline' on their blog and it made me want to claw my eyes out in desperation:

Community encouraging. Grace exploring. Kingdom of God embracing. Progressive politics expressing. Bicycle riding. Snow playing. Family supporting. Indianapolis loving. Future anticipating.

Now, don't get me wrong, I'm sure he's a perfectly nice person. He certainly gets two thumbs up for the "Progressive politics expressing" thing.

However, all that 'Noun Verb. Noun Verb. Noun Verb...'ing, well ack.

Again with the eye clawing! This just in, from the 'About' section of a fashion blog from Yemen*:
My blog is a window into fashion,for people who don't know how to dress well.Truely,my blog does contain other stuff.People need to read this blog So people can learn how to dress good and do other stuff good too.

* All spelling and grammar is original. Oh, and it's a fashion blog from Yemen... who knew?

Hi there, you were 'next' so here I am!

The last part from the Yemen fashion blog, "So people can learn how to dress good and do other stuff good too," kind of sounds like Zoolander, who wants to build "a centre for kids to learn how to read and write good, and do other stuff good too." Or something like that.

I know what you mean about Zoolander! Good pick.

I shouldn't be mean about someone who speaks English as a second (or possibly third) language, but I thought the blurb sounded kind of pompous - and then the "learn how to dress good and do other stuff good too" just kind of shot it all down in flames.

I'm with you there, how about 'Noun verb. Noun verb. Noun verb, BANG. Where are those exploding Noun-verbs when you need them?!
And as for Yemen. 'People need to read this blog...' They need it? They NEED it? Oh my God. I can, however understand this as I have worked with Armenians and that is just Armenian through and through. Bless them. Hope that you feel less heavy tomorrow, and that the bloggersphere brightens up somewhat. Take care, Marty

Wait Marty, you worked with Armenians?... sounds like there's a story there.

Thanks for the comments, have a great day.
