I was going to dedicate an entire post to the use of the word (or pseudo-word) "EXPECIALLY", when I realized that in that post I could also talk about the use of the pseudo-word "EXPRESSO". Then I ran into Starbuck's to use a gift certificate and get myself a deliciously fattening muffin, and heard "EXPRESSO" from the idiot in front of me in line. I have this picture in my mind about what this person should look like, and you know what? I am right every time. Black eyeliner, alien hair (ie Victoria Beckham).... and Ugg boots. Yes, Ugg boots. Ususally, this person is less than 22 years of age, but not always. To top it off (literally), a trucker's hat may or may not be found in her closet.
What does any of this have to do with the Bachelor, you might ask?? I am not going to name drop or anything (Lorenzo Lamas) but the 22 year-old Shayne is my new, glowing stereotype of the girl described above. She is interested in 5 things: watches, shoes, handbags, and two other totally pretentious, shallow things that some women use to cover their souls. Did anyone notice how coyly she acted about "forgetting" about the rose and how her voice seemed to go up three octaves when she talked to the Bachelor?
Anyways, I saw her in her Ugg boots (or Fugg boots) and she actually uttered the word "sawl", not "saw", not once, but twice. Do you know what I know about people who say the words "expecially" and "sawl"? They can't (or don't or both) read books. They obviously can't read fashion mag's b/c for about the last 4 years, Fugg boots/short skirts/trucker hats have been officially declared OUT.
