    Plus one. Any time peanut butter is mixed with chocolate, the karmic balance of the universe is restored.

    RIP Mitch. He was a genius.

    Sounds good to me! Timmies, poutine, and LaBatts after.

    My daughter has a word for roundabouts, but I'm not sure I should share it. ;)

    I always use "u" but spellcheckers don't seem to like it!

    Yep - brought to you by the Department of Redundancy Department.

    I was actually contacted by a mod two days ago regarding my use of a certain word with a number substituted for a letter in reply to Henry. I should have known better, no doubt about it. Glad to see nobody took it the wrong way; I was after all making fun of that kind of thing.

    Lots of awesome stuff since then! Yeah, people yelling all the time. Two thoughts on that: a hell of a lot of premature hearing damage, and the fact that almost everyone in reality television does it, usually accompanied by really inappropriately dramatic music.

    "MY GOD, this man just cooked the PERFECT HARD-BOILED EGG!" DUN-DUN-DUNNNNNNN!!!

    My wife loves the stuff, but I just retreat and pick up the guitar or a book.

    It's not "Reality TV", but more like ""Sureality TV. Reality TV is called the News.

    I think of the news as more like another branch of the entertainment industry.

    Actually I’m just in a good mood today; mostly I think of it as a sort of giant tapeworm.

    I have not yet caught up to the rest of the posts but read this and AGREE!! My wife says "it is what it is" a lot and I just repeatedly ask her: "When is there a time where it isn't when it is?"

    I'm from New Jersey and live on Long Island so aside from the thousand of wannabe Robert Deniros out here, and my mother-in-law, the saying "Not for nothing" drives me crazy!!!!

    At the workplace when someone with far less experience than me advises to "level-set expectations" is another. I don't care what their position is, I advise them never to tell me that again and then illustrate how it is grammatically incorrect.

    "Talk-atcha" is another. I spelled it how it sounds and will hear people say it once in a while. It sounds preppy to me and is annoying but I also noticed I never heard before I saw the move "Wall Street". Charlie Sheen's character Bud Fox says it a few times.

    Haha i say “Not for Nothing” often. Almost as often as I say “It is what it is”.
    I also say “whattaya gonna do?” But not really as a question more as a response when someone tells me about a decision they made.
    Like if someone were to say:
    “He pulled a knife on me, so I shot him”
    I’d say:
    “Well, whattayagonnado?”
