Not so favorite – Love means never having to say you’re sorry

Favorite – What does the fox say?

Not so favorite – crowdsourcing

Favorite – For fuck’s sake

Not so favorite – It is what it is

Favorite – LMAO

Not so favorite – LOL

Now you.  What are some of your favorite or not so favorite phrases?


  1. I Loathe “Have a nice one!” A nice what? If you know me, then would know what I would like to have be nice. If you don’t, then think about what I would like to have be nice… My day, my weekend, my hair day, my life!! I Love “For Fuck Sake!” “You Betcha!” “Oh My Stars!”

  2. I’ve always been fond of those fifties ones: bee’s knees and cat’s pajamas.
    I hate anything that gets overused, so I’m totally with you on “It is what it is”.
    I am neutral on LOL. But anything BUT neutral on … shit, I turned my head and completely forgot what I was so passionate about. Yeah. That’s about how I roll these days.

    I love anything with the word fuck in it. That’s furrr sure.

  3. Love really means that you have to say I’m sorry all the freakin’ time. Right?

  4. Favorite: I love you mommy.
    Not so Favorite: But I said please….. (usually followed by infant whining)

  5. Can I steal For Fuck’s Sake?


    Okay then.

    I’ll go with least favorite: the mother of an old boyfriend of mine used to say, “Profanity is the crutch of the conversational cripple.”

    It’s wrong on so many levels.

    p.s. I’m thinking about you, Missy. I know you’re approaching the holidays without your dad and I hope you’re doing okay. Sending love – either way.
