Eliza Doolittle.

You know what annoys me?  People who use the word lovely to describe things.  Things that just aren't lovely.  My old boss, Ms. Do Nothing for $90K a year used to say it all the time.  Oh, she is so lovely.  Isn't this room lovely?  Laura, don't you think this is a lovely place?  

No!  Things are not lovely.  They are nice.  They are great.  They are fantastic.  They are pretty.  But, they are not lovely.  Unless it is 1955 and we are talking about my mother's apple pie.
