Arch-parodist Caroline Phillips, of 'My Tornado Hell' fame is is back!
Anyone who thought her article did an astonishing job of taking a horrible situation (having a tornado smash up your house) and wringing any chance of sympathy from it by describing it in terms an interior design magazine/crawly-arse gossip column would blush at, was suffering from 'trauma envy', apparently.
Maybe we should all leave this before she gets a book deal out of it. Still, I'm glad Happy the cat came back.
UPDATE: right, I wasn't going to get into this again but "there’s something new and positive — a whirlwind of creativity that will linger: three babies have been born to my neighbours since then."
That's not "a whirlwind of creativity", that's just "fucking", isn't it? Always good to have a new term for it though.
