I've been tagged by the lovely Becs in Bohemia to come up with 5 words that I just do not like. I'm going to use my most annoying words, or at least the ones I can think of at this very moment! Hmmm...let's see:
Pop – On every single one of the decorating shows on cable TV (of which I watch many) there is at LEAST one obligatory use of a phrase such as ... 'the addition of the red really makes it POP.' You know when it's coming ... you mouth it along with the decorator. There must be some other way of describing the addition of an interesting detail. Also overused in women's magazines to describe a lipstick or what a particular eyeshadow does to one's eyes. ugh!
Waalah! -- This is simply a spelling error that I come across often. The word is "Voila", people. Please spell it that way. If you don't know French, then don't write it. ;-)
Reality -- As in "reality TV show" -- which usually means a really dumb show that will surely insult your intelligence. It also refers to generally out-of-work actors who are desperate for a job. I don't want to burst anyone's bubble...but these shows arescripted, therefore it isn't really reality!
Whatever -- Also known as "whatevah!'. Not very nice.
Trendy -- ewww ... 'nuff said!
Pricey -- as in "Joshua does my hair..., but he is a bit pricey."
Oops, that was 6. I'm not very good at following rules. Sometimes I make up my own. And of course there are worse words, but I am keeping it clean!
