I don't believe that I've ever before used the word "ninnyhammer" in quite the vicious, appalled tone as I use it to describe Bridget Jones, of the infamous Diary. The style is compelling, but is better-served in the parody. One may argue that Bridget Jones herself is a parody of the life of the desperately single career woman, which arguably she is, but ... I've met at least one of her.
If someone is like Bridget Jones, please to be having at least one or two redeeming characteristics, because if not, I'm staying very far away from you, and I'd appreciate likewise.
