I've always been a fan of "parched". The sound of that word just seems to capture the essence of severe thirst so very well.

When I'm telling a story and I want to let someone know that I was REALLY, and I mean REALLY pissed...I either use "livid" or "furious".

I say "bajs" a lot, so that can be considered as my favourite. Sometimes I say "din mamma" which is good as well.

I've been using "hierarchy" and "lucid" a lot lately. I like those words.

I like the word "defenestration" because it's very specific, silly, negative, and phonoaesthetic.

I like the word "frustration" because it's quite negative and I love using this word whenever I'm frustrated":D

I thought people who tend to be so passionate about debating would have a few favorite phrases to add. Then again, I can't think of anymore for some reason.

My favourite words at the moment are lackadaisical, moribund, verismilitude and acquiesence. And yes I do find ways to get them into conversation.

Quasi-object. Even though I'm not a fan of a lot of progressive geography terms.

I like using southern phrases whenever I can. As much as the southern accent has always gotten on my nerves, I've come to embrace the unique vernacular. I used to say "I reckon" to be funny, now it's something that's part of my everyday speech. Gotta be careful for things like that, they'll sneak up on you. Other phrases I use every now and again:


Fair-to-middlin'.
Not enough room to cuss a cat.
Coon's age ("Ain't seen you in a coon's age").
Much obliged.



There are probably half a dozen more that I can't think of at the moment.

Ah, I remembered one!

Calling someone a "smacked ass". Older folks generally say this, so I sort of say it ironically, but I find that it perfectly describes the essence of a miserable person who just sucks to be around. Someone who legitimately does not enjoy life and makes it as unenjoyable as possible for others.

"Boy, that John's a smacked ass".

My favorite phrases are generally ones I come up with spontaneously. For instance, my preferred "I don't give a ___" phrase is "I don't give an ass." People say "I don't give a damn/shit/fuck/rat's ass" all the time but it's rarely just ass. So that's kinda my thing.

I also like to say "W. T. Fuck."

There's a very similar one in the UK - "John's got a face like a smacked arse". I always rather liked it too.

Because my local dialect is so backward and weird, we have a lot of odd phrases that people use all the time, that are utterly mistifying to outsiders.

I'll give a few, typed out in the accent in which they're said; see if you can guess what they mean.

Ark at 'er, ark at 'im, ark at 'um.
Ar could ayt a scabby oss.
Keep off the 'oss road!
Yer daft ha'p'orth!
It were bostin',

Have fun!

PS. I've also started to use the phrase "It's colder than my ex-wife's christmas cards" to describe the whether. It highly amuses me at least, which is the important thing.

Aah, I do like that one quite a bit. I like making up analogies, too. Here are a couple I thought of:


"Dirtier than an '80s blood test."
"I'll beat you like a drum made of runaway slaves."
"You could make more money selling Rocawear at a KKK rally."

I like to say "queef" when I'm alone in my room, I laugh by myself because of the meaning and because it sounds funny.

I will never grow up.
