So I'm at this hotel alone, waiting for my interview tomorrow and Friday.
So I got to dinner at the hotel restaurant, which fancies itself as quite snazzy. Because I'm sick of looking at job related materials, I read the menu closely...food descriptions are fun.
But this menu committed some food writing crimes. The number one word I hate, in food descriptions?
It's always "X nestled on a bed of..."
Ugh. That is gross.
Coming a close second is "zesty". A lemon tart? Zesty? No!! Who'd have thunk it?
On a related note, my most hated fashion-and-lifestyle word, the scourge of fashion writing, is "flirty" - as in a "flirty dress". Retch.
Any food or fashion words you hate??
