cringe list: this week edition

5 August 2009

– hearing “orientated” in vast quantities this week. as in, “i’m detail-orientated”.  sigh.  we’re in a recession, folks, i’m not sure you can afford to throw about the extra syllables, all willy-nilly, even if it is technically a real word.

– 1-877-DO-FRUIT, the number for a fruit bouquet company advertised on tv.

– introduction to a presentation during lunch at a teaching conference (during lunch, because we don’t deserve to have a break during our 8 hour days!): “are you guys hungry? because i brought my appetite for KNOWLEDGE!” no. you. didn’t.

meal list for one day (hypothetical, of course, as i would NEVER eat this): chocolate doughnuts, goldfish crackers, iced tea, peach, cereal, sour candy.  what am i, 8?

    I am sitting on my couch eating goldfish and drinking c-lite and chocolate milk right now. You need a kid. Then you can eat that stuff.
