I mis-pelled schmaltzopolypse.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 2/14/14 9:15am Alex In Illinois:

For me, it is not so much the words themselves, as their misuse. People should learn the meaning of the word "penultimate" before using it. The word "invite" is a verb, not a noun. The noun is "invitation". "Fail" is a verb, not a noun. The noun is "Failure". "Bad" is adjective, not a noun. "Fault" or "mistake" are the nouns that should follow the word "my" when admitting culpability.

Deliverables. Around that. Socialize. Circle back to. Leverage. Constituents. Professionalism. I can think of two, three dozen other words and phrases that make me cringe whenever my co-workers (or I) write or say them, but it's a day off for me and I'd rather think about other things. Like the earth covered in bacon fat

A.J. came on Pittsburgh sports radio promising it was the Pirates or retirement. I'm not going after the biggest contract, he said, that's not what I'm about.

He was fine for the Pirates when the Yankees were still paying most of his salary. Philly will learn to revile him.

There is a huge pothole (crater) on our street just a few feet from where I park right in front of our house. The driver's side of our car gets Jackson Pollocked every day with the salty-sandy slush that cars splash onto it when they hit the pothole. I literally have to wash down the side window to see out of it. It was amusing for the first few days. Now I just cry inside. (Of course, I could park somewhere else, but NO!)

I rent a parking space in a lot accross the street from and 100 feet East of my building. I always park in the same spot on the end, which I have shovelled a few times. I do not mind if someone uses the space while I am away at work (some peple have 12 hour day permits), so that is why I am reluctant to guard it with furniture, machinery or animals or other barricades. Also, if someone uses it while I am away, that will keep new snow from falling on it. I just wish there were a way to make sure it is clear when I get home.

i've started wondering if all the train derailments lately aren't being engineered by the pipeline / oil folks. it seems a bit suspicious to me.
