I stand behind my rule that 'very unique' still sounds stupid. said...

FABULOUS! Seriously, there were about ten words I was totally spelling WRONG before I started blogging!

Paul is right - "very unique" is stupid. Something is either unique or it isn't - this is not a relative term.

Almost as annoying as the use of the word "entitled" to mean "titled."

Just saying... I really love words.
