Words that annoy me

Thursday, May 26, 2011

I just read this post at A Cup of Jo and had to talk about some words that annoy me, since there are many.

The editor of New York Magazine, Kurt Anderson, drafted up a list of words that irritate the living bejesus out of him to the point where he asked his staff to not use them while he was with the magazine. I would love to make a list of words that people shouldn't use around me while I'm on Earth.

It would include, but not be limited to, the following:

Babe
Baby Bump
Blogosphere
Bump Watch
Darling
Fashionista
Foodies
Gastropub
LOL
Low Hanging Fruit
Luv
Nuptials
Quipped
Rawk
Rawr
'Rents
Sexy (DOES ANYONE ELSE FIND SEXY TO BE THE UNSEXIEST WORD EVER? I can't even say it with a straight face, I don't think I've said 'sexy' more than three times in my entire life)
Smorgasboard
Stellar
Totes (as in 'totally')
Uvula
Webinar
Yummers

What words would you like to ban if you could?

**EDITED because I missed one of the most obvious words I hate: BUTT. Haaaaaate.
