    I've been coming across the word "refreshing" a lot lately - "she's such a refreshing dancer", "he's such a refreshing change from the old blah, blah, blah", "it was such a refreshing book". It is really getting on my nerves. And this one has been brought up in the past, but it still bugs me - DH. Arrrgghhhh! Hate it.
    All I wanted was a 45, a stinking 45 - the record or the gun. I'd even settle for the damn malt liquor. - Al Bundy.

    Every time I see the initials DH, I think of designated hitter. And I'm not even a baseball fan.

    Took me a while to figure that one out. I had a lot of left-over words and buzzwords from work which were three letters. When I see them on a license plate or elsewhere, I still think of those shortcuts, and it's been 12 years. Our business had its own buzzwords known only to those of us in the business.

    The word I've been hearing lately is, "hawkish". I'm not sure what it means. Its been used in this context, "The presidents response was hawkish."

    A hawk in political terms is someone that wants to go to war or supports war.

    Hawks are in favor of war.
    Doves are not.

    I don't like phrases such as, "How cool is that?" or "How awesome is that?" I hear phrases like this often, and I'm not sure when this trend began.

    Uh oh - "How cool is that?" is one of my phrases. In my defense, I hang with middle school kids all day long and some of it is bound to rub off.

    I know it's used here a lot, but I can't stand saying something "is to die for". Just gets my goat.

    I can't stand hearing Gordon Ramsey calling someone a "donkey" on Hell's Kitchen.
