Occupy – I think we can all agree we’ve had enough of this one. Occupy Wall Street, Occupy Twitter, Occupy our time!! Go occupy a hobby, will you??
Man Cave – I don’t really mind this one too much. Anything that can keep a man entertained while I’m taking forever to get ready is okay by me.
Ginormous – Color me guilty. I use this one all the time. Yes, it’s completely made up, and it probably is overused, but more often than not it perfectly describes the situation.
Amazing – We should all be so lucky has to have too many amazing things in our lives!
The New Normal – Some things are just ridiculous. When talking about what is currently considered ‘normal’, it’s not new, it’s just different. And there is no normal anyway!!
