This disney post made me feel sea sick ... I had to
stop reading half way down it because the room
started swaying.

Lets take you name first: CHEAPlitraturesmith

What does cheap mean? Here are just a few a few of the definitions:

miserly
stingy
parsimonious
tightfisted
frugal
penny-pinching
cheeseparing
despicable
contemptible
immoral
unscrupulous
unprincipled
unsavory
distasteful
vulgar
ignoble
shameful

You can probably also add "has small a part in life", and "bates woman" too, but lets not be nasty...

Your name alone suggests that you set a really low standard, and I suspect, you frequently fail to achieve it...

I really don't know why you have chosen to pick on this lady...I am currently reading her book...and I am glad to say, it's a *****

Frugal : That's the one you were looking for.

As in - not gushing, spunking your sentimentality all over the joint like an uncontrollable emotion-cannon not caring who becomes collateral damage.

Pathos Vs Sentimentality. Pathos wins every time. Shortcuts don't work with me:
