The Atlanta STC chapter has posted its host city Web site for the STC Summit. We are starting to get geard up and revved up. We are in the final stages of editing a cookbook of our favorite Southern technical writer recipes, e.g., Cut and Pasta Garden Salad, to share with our visitors. It will include extra tidbits such as tips on speaking Southern. The following in an excerpt:
Bless your heart
This is the most delicious of Southern phrases. When said in a kind way it means that you are doing the best you can in a tough situation. Example: “They’ve got you doing the Help with ForeHelp 1.2? Bless your heart!”
When said in a mean way, it means you’re just too stupid to know better. Example: “You sent the VP an e-mail demanding that the technical writers’ platforms get upgraded before the developers’? Bless your heart!”
