PLease stop using 'awesome' please. Words are fun, use your imagination. Its kinda groovy.
although i am guilty of the overuse of these words.
with awesome. What is the problem?
I am in awe of a volcano, therefore it is awesome. You really are silly
is a horrible word....
you stop writing posts that read as follows:
<the actual topic of the post> <reference to band you've probably not heard but have seen mentioned on here> <random change of direction> <another reference to band you've probably not heard but have seen mentioned on here> <something apologetic for being "old">
how do you know I haven't 'heard' them? Proof please - and also whatahve you got against my age just because I'm not 9? your passion for music doesn't fade if you get older unless your some sort fo transitory only 'into' music in order to get a girlfriend.
tee hee, mega.
stuff like That Fucking Tank.
also, please notice how i wrote "old". i don't think you're old, but you do constantly apologise for it :P
<insert metaphor comparing something to character in 20th century novel>
some of them are 19th century I'll have you know.
I have heard that fucking That Fucking Tank
Anyone fancy a drink over Easter to prove it?
"...now I know how it feels to be the <insert obscure family relation status here> of <insert bassist or drummers name from late 80's/early 90's indie band here>"
last.fm charts just in?
but HEY. go easy on coops! he's my favourite poster.
could be a cultural/class-centric thing that i don't get (from not having grown up here), but words like 'posh' and 'smug' i find overused and boring.
I hate it when people say 'methinks'.
'Oh yes I'll have a cup of tea, so long as its WET AND WARM'.
'You had to be there really'.
Is pretty much made up of: 'awesome', 'ace', 'totally', 'wow', 'you know' and 'for sure'.
I object to all of them.
I am at work and I can indulge.....I also dont like c***'s name.
I dont like the word 'st**muffin'
But your inability to take a joke and your bizarre use of language does baffle me :)
and I sort of know youre just 'ribbing me'
Does that sound gay?
It's the most yuckiest, unsexiest word ever.
or 'knickers' then?
both sound really frumpy :(
There probably isn't a good alternative I can suggst but I knoww that, for me at least, the use of the word 'panties' just kills any eroticism stone dead.
"Oooh, these flapjacks are really moreish."
'Isn't Littlejohn so in touch with the real world?'
"Your head is on fire."
but didn't transcribe this
"oooh, this heroin is really moreish."
I am also a massive fan of amazing, ace and nice.
I'd go as far as saying it's ace.
I also found myself using ace the other day. It's really shit.
I still refrain from most DiS sorta phrases. Which i'm happy with.
'brave' and 'bravery'.
this use of the word 'blatant', with the long '...llllllaaa...' in the middle. i hate it.
a man got sick because of officiate
"Ace" - Especially.
"Five". One to ten all sound so nice except for five. Even seven, and its crazy TWO syllables
Now STOP and THINK!
Is what you are about to say obvious or is it just something you haven't said yet?
Did something occur in its literal sense as opposed to metaphorically or do you just mean ' it happened'
There is nothing wrong with leaving a pause in the conversation, some people need to learn this.
Once someone was telling a story about how she got off with someone at work and apparantly said 'I was LITERALLY grilled the next day about it'.
express your surprise at the news that sharon got off with brad at a club last night by saying... IS IIIIT
"Townie" rather than "Chav"?
I think it differs.
Chav's a rubbish word. Scally is used most commonly here.
liverpool, its always scally. Never heard chav once here except by southerners.
All this chav shit, In 1995 so would have been about 15 got robbed a fiver by some, and they were always called 'twoks' then suddently 10 years on and it's this phenomena, chav this, chav that
it makes my skin crawl.
I overuse so many of the words in this thread. Especially 'awesome', 'amazing' and 'ace'. I also use 'totally', 'literally' and 'dude' ALL THE TIME.
and im happy for them
my brain oh my brain : (
When used to intensify, is so shit nowadays. I am usually a descriptivist, but goddamn, this pisses me off.
"Your hand is literally falling off."
I hate eclectic
Don't look at my profile.
I actually shiver at that word.
I'm using the Opera browser speech thing, and I highlighted it for it to say, and it's repeating and won't stop. Actually, Opera saves sessions. Better stop when I reopen.
horrible, horrible word.
and 'bubbly' it just means fat.
fancy a glass of fat to celebrate?"
deserves more lolz
Gob was in my list. I hate it.
Although I don't think it necessarily means fat. It just means incredibly irritating.
obviously, this is literally not awesome
especially 'moist towelette'
because when you say that, it's probably not.
maybe i'm just in an awful mood, well i am, but yeah. it's a shit word because when it's used it's not true.
people overuse it. It becomes really tedious if someone says it over and over again.
and derivatives thereof.
'smegma' is amazing. awesome, in fact.
i love it : (
it's not healthy
i just don't like your choice of words.
i'm loving living it's all good
fucking horrible song
