I Love Lucy Mangan

I have the concentration span of a gnat with Attention Deficit Disorder. So when I started blogging I decided that none of my posts should be longer than 100 words. Ha Ha …. I’d just forgotten how opinionated I am.
But at least my sentences are short.

Now I love Lucy Mangan who writes the column in G2. She has a bad attitude and makes me laugh a lot.

On being asked if she had any decaf she replies - ´ I´m sorry, I only have beverages whose raison d´ etre has not been removed in order to accommodate the self indulgent witterings of morons. Would you like some water instead, or will its reckless combination of hydrogen and oxygen induce some kind of convulsion?´

She gets paid for blogging really. Nice work, but no doubt she’d tell me about the appalling stress of meeting deadlines.
However, she uses extremely long sentences. Recently she broke all her records with a sentence containing 70 words. It included the word concatenation.
Now I can read without moving my lips, but after 70 words you do feel a bit breathless.

I particularly liked Lucy’s tribute to the Queen mum (here) .

Longest sentence in this post = 20 words

The decaf response is pure class. I like the sound of this gal...

Just been trawling through her columns, chuckling away. It is like a very well-written blog, isn't it? Fabulous stuff

I don't think I'd spotted that her sentences were often so long before.. which is, I suppose, a further testament to just how well written they are.

Thought her recent Cif Guardian article on phobias was excellent. she has great skill in highlighting serious issues through her unique sense of humour. This was a fine example of that skill. Loved it !
