tiny giant squid

Squid. Yummy! :-)

And who uses dilemma incorrectly??

Elin said...

Well see, here's the thing...I'm a purist when it comes to dilemma usage. I believe this (from

from Gk. dilemma "double proposition," a technical term in rhetoric, from di- "two" + lemma "premise, anything taken," from base *lab-. It should be used only of situations where someone is forced to choose between two alternatives, both unfavorable to him.

Most people use it to mean a problem or predicament, which annoys the hell out of me.

And also, don't eat my squid.
