    Cool. I still say it way too much.

    “Just kidding.” I’m trying to quit.

    I drop f-bombs all day long. It’s just way too easy to use -it’s a verb, an adjective, an adverb…it can literally be almost any part of a sentence structure. It’s an awesome word!!

    Too bad it’s so crass.

    My whole vocabulary is redundant. I haven’t said anything new or original in like 17 years. I repeat myself so much that I’ve been accused of having my own language, aptly entitled, “Sabonics.”

    “sounds good”
    mostly when getting off the phone, “ok, sounds good, talk to you later.” etc.
    have fun at the bbq everyone! i’m mad cause i’m missing it for bronchitis. ugh.
    i may say and type “ugh” too much too.

    I have a few of them. The ones that annoy me the most:
    Actually – because it usually precedes a geeky little ramble
    Awesome – because it makes me sound like a kid
    Totally – same reason as awesome

    I find “totally” and “awesome” coming out in the same sentence far more than I am happy with. Even though I very seldom put the two right next to each other, it still reminds me of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in ways that are not pleasant.

    None. I have a practically perfect linguistic balance. Or I am not self-aware enough to notice. Anyone is welcome to let me know if the latter is the case. e

    It recently came to my attention that I use the phrase “You’ve got to be kidding me” far too often. And it’s usually in traffic, but also when I go to, say, the post office, and they’re out of stamps.

    To balance it out, though, here are some phrases I am either trying to introduce or reintroduce:

    1. Righteous – and not in the spiritual sense
    2. Gourmet – In place of fancy, upscale, or advanced
    3. Book – the verb, instead of “head out” or the dreaded “bounce”

  9. amber said,

    ugh-hate “Bounce”
    also hate “jet”

    i’m a pretty big fan of “fancy” tho. i like using it to mean unique, worthwhile, fun, good, or awesome-or simply when there isn’t a proper response to something.

    i also use “fussy’ instead of mad sometimes-it takes the bite out of mad and pissed off if u say “that makes me fussy”

    to busy smirking at the use of such a silly word to stay mad that way..
