I LOVE your amazingly catchy song “Just a Dream” but I need to tell you… “only just a dream” is the most grammatically annoying/redundant thing I’ve* ever heard.  Could there not have been a better 2-syllable word than “only” before “just?”  This is almost as offensive as people who say “but yet”.  BUH!

Sigh.  I’ll continue to listen to this for weeks, anyway.  It’s too good.

*Brit pointed it out first.  Gotta give her credit or she’ll yell at me later!

Why do people use the semi-colon so inappropriately?  These are the same people who use, like, 5 ampersands (&&&&&) when they want to say “and”.  &&& it’s fucking annoying.  &&&&&  so WRONG!
