Seeing as WordPress decided to delete all my work on this post, I held off on finishing it because it annoyed me so much. This was SUPPOSED to be posted on Wednesday but sadly was not. But I decided to start it over and re-post it, so here it is:
I decided not to do a book review post today for the following reasons:
- I saw Wicked last night and am way too exhausted to sit and write anything cohesive
- My Oscars post for today gave me crazy problems – just put the pictures where I want them darnit!
- I’m still too enthralled from Wicked to focus on anything else, which is making working very hard.
But I did want to post today so, instead of a book review, I thought I’d do something kind of fun… and book related.
Anyone who knows me pretty well knows that I use phrases from TV shows and movies like they’re going out of style. There’s probably not a day that goes by that I don’t use at least one line from 30 Rock or Scrubs. And we all know how much the language of my posts can sound like a scene from Clueless.
Lately though my quotetage (cool word I made up, no?) has gotten worse… I’ve started using book phrases and terms in my everyday speech. Which usually gets me very funny looks 9/10 times.
Here are some of my top book phrases that I use way too much:
- Riddikulus – Used whenever something is annoying the snot out of me
This client is being riddikulus!
- “I’m gonna need my green pill” – a phrase used when agitated or stressed; inspired from Matched
- Cullen Driving – used to describe a form of driving needed when running late
I drove like a Cullen to work today but still didn’t make it on time.
- Going District 12 – a phrase to signify the magnitude of one’s temper tantrums
Don’t make me go all District 12 on their asses.
- “You. Yes You” – used simply put how I feel about another
I would like to make out with you. Yes you.
- Zombie-pocalypse – the end of the world due to the rise of zombies
- A word/phrase meaning… – used to describe words or phrases that might not be familiar
In her work she was diligent, a word here meaning she worked very hard to suck up to her boss in order to get a raise.
Are there any words or phrases you use in your everyday speech that are inspired by books?
