In response to a request from one of our reader’s I will be testing out a new feature on the blog; the so-called Barts-MS rose-tinted-ometer.
The rose-tinted-ometer derives its name for having a rose-tinted view of the world. Someone with a rosetinted view of the world has an unduly idealistic, optimistic, sentimental, or wistful perspective on or about something.
In future, my blog posts will be rated from zero to 5-stars on the rose-tinted-ometer. The reader can then choose whether or not to read the post, based on whether or not they want good, bad or other news.
When I started thinking about rating my posts I was considering making an ostrich-ometer, i.e. a rating scale on how far you wanted to bury your head in the sand. However, I soon realised this is really a binary scale; you either have your head in the sand or you don’t 😉
