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. Little senseless married woman with that black sweater with the neon accents, I'm looking at you. ... all right, I've finished the book, and Bridget Jones does have a few redeeming features. Unlike the psychic vampire masquerading as a co-worker.
Gone away, gone ahead,
Echoes roll unanswered.
Empty, open, dusty, dead.
Why have all the Weyrfolk fled?

Where have dragons gone together
Leaving weyrs to wind and weather,
Setting herdbeasts free of tether;
Gone, our safeguards, gone, but whither?

Have they flown to some new weyr
Where cruel Threads some others fear?
Are they worlds away from here?
Why, oh why the empty weyr?
