Who says I gotta stay cool? Life is not a deodorant commercial.

LOL.

I'm rarely successful at it. Staying cool is not half as satisfying as getting to fully express my displeasure.

Rubber tubing. Doesn't leave a mark.

lol...

Actually, duct tape would be the optimal solution...ESPECIALLY over the mouth.

Any utterance containing "perfect storm." It's worse when it comes from my mouth.

I'm not kidding, that is literally how he talks sometimes.

But if I'm really engaged in the conversation, he doesn't do this; in fact he settles down and only uses it very occasionally.

Weird. And it makes conversation tiresome, because I have to stay talkative more than I generally like, or fall into this nasty pit of UNOs.
my boss does this with 'knowwuddamean' ...the same way. we used to count the instances but it got tiresome, knowwhudamean?

I have to wait 4 days to get something...really really nice... I was thinking to myself,"It's for the best" which is one of those annoying sayings you don't want anyone else to say.

I knew why it was 'for the best' for me which have to do with paydates etc..so I guess it's ok to use annoying phrases with oneself?

Oh yes!
I say all sorts of things to myself I wouldn't dream of saying to other people!
One step at a time.
This won't last forever.
It's okay, it's okay, don't cry, it's not that bad.

I like the first two

aww but..the last one is sad.

please never cry

I never cry. The only time I cry is when I watch the Muppets Christmas Carol which is a bit odd for someone who hates to cry.

It's the finale song When love is found.It's a quasi-universal love thing.

I hate to cry about myself. I cry all the time at books, songs, films, poems - sometimes even adverts! But if I'm upset I'll hold in tears as long as I can - like being sick.

I cried at work when I was going throught the whole HM/ moving out thing. I was so ashamed. But the great thing about working with artists is no-one except me was embarrassed - they were all of the "let it all out!" school. Nice - but not me.

The other thing I do is use endearments to get myself moving.
Come on sweetheart, time to get up.
That's it beauty, keep going.
Never mind babba, you'll get there in the end.

I am a one-woman support network
Actually I think that comes from talking to my cats too much!

Stella oft sees the very face of woe
Painted in my beclouded stormy face,
But cannot skill to pity my disgrace,
Not though thereof the cause herself she know;
Yet hearing late a fable, which did show
Of lovers never known a grievous case,
Pity thereof gat in her breast such place
That, from the sea derived, tears' spring did flow.
Alas, if fancy, drawn by imaged things
Though false, yet with free scope, more grace doth breed
Than servant's wrack, where new doubts honor brings;
Then think, my dear, that you in me do read
Of lovers' ruin some sad tragedy.
I am not I; pity the tale of me.
--Sir Philip Sidney, Astrophel and Stella

I dunno why...it just popped into my head when I read this from SG. Carry on.

"it's a real learning curve"


...as opposed to an imaginary one?

In factany phrase with "learning curve" in it is damned irritating.
