Phrases I shall try not to Use

On theroblog, I hope you find something useful and/or entertaining amongst all the ramblings. I'm going to come up with a list of phrases that I'm getting a bit tired of hearing, and seeing. You can call me on it if I slip.

1. "highly anticipated". Well WTH does that mean? "much anticipated" makes more sense. Or "widely anticipated" or "greatly anticipated" (maybe). This was heard in a Zd net blog video and I realized I'm sick of it, and it doesn't make sense anyway.

2. "Tiger", "Leopard", "Panther", "Puma", "Orange Ba$*ard Housecat" or whatever Apple keeps naming their operating systems. I don't mind Windows 2000, Windows XP, Vista so much as they are different enough (and not released on what seems like a 3 month schedule APPLE) that I can keep them straight. I'll just use OS X 10.blahdee.blahdee. Don't get me started on the whole OS X 10.0 deal. Anyone for the Roman numeral version? The latest is OS X.IV.X

3. A list in no particular order: "pundit", "paparazzi", Movie phrases: "Must see" and "feel good movie of the ...".

Aaaaand, I'm spent.

You can leave your own words and phrases in the comments. Repeat the nonconformist's oath:

"I promise to be different!"

"I promise to be unique!"

"I promise not to repeat things other people say!"
