Very Very Martha

There are annoying things that some people do that you never really focus on. Then one day someone calls your attention to them and from that point on you can't avoid seeing them. They drive you nuts.

I'm about to do that to you.

Martha Stewart. While she's an accomplished cook and baker she's not exactly Nigella Lawson when it comes to using the English language. Her vocabulary is ridiculously limited.

Take "very." She beats this word to death. Then she beats it some more.

"Add two tablespoons of very good olive oil and then stir until it's very very well mixed."

There's a "very" in every other sentence out her mouth. Often there's two or three.

Aargh!
