>>Ah, Robyn - how do you fancy the popular 
construction; "John thought to
>himself"?

That's pretty dreadful.>>

Yet "I thought to myself" seems quite
acceptable.....


<Ah, I've met worse - and far too frequently. 
"John thought in his mind"  I
maintain is the nadir - after all, where else can

anyone think?>

Its possible to know something in your heart and
have feelings in your gut but I don't believe
I've ever seen anyone claim that they think.
