Good tidings

This little beauty appeared in the God-awful Scotsman newspaper recently:

Apart from the gorgeous spelling errors, I enjoyed the sentence beginning 'Clothes, shoes...' The way the list suddenly recommences, seemingly apropos of nothing, is excellent: it's like when a newsreader is told to keep ad-libbing because the tape of the next story isn't ready yet.

It's good to be home, GrammarBlog.

DVD's, CD's...

Although kudos for correctly using 'envious' and not the now ubiquitous 'jealous'.

I like the image of "tiding away clutter in the living room..." I picture a slow rising of the waters (of the Tyne?) up from the carpet to the couch-cushion level until slack-water. I see books, plates, and the television remote floating in for a moment before sliding out the front door on the ebb.

urmph! I left an accidental "in" between "floating" and "for." I beg your pardon.
