WORD POWER!!!
Posted 10:58 AM on Wed-27-Jun-2012
I, like a lot of people have been known to bust out the odd expletive when the occasion calls for it... however, I have discovered (or rather, had this lovingly pointed out to me), that I also use a variety of "uncommon" words which actually give me greater satisfaction!

You know, the kind of words I mean, ones which seem to sound the way you're feeling at the time and seem to just carry more weight.

So, I thought I'd share them with you, and, as we all know I am a nosy creature; thought I'd ask what words are on your "non-expletive-weighty-situation" list.

IRK/IRKED/IRKSOME:
I often use this instead of saying "I'm p****ed off" or "you're annoying me"
"I'M IRKED!" "YOU'RE IRKING ME!" or "STOP BEING AN IRKSOME IRK!!!" seems to make me feel like I've got my point across.lol I also use VEX/VEXED and LIVID, and WRATH and all extensions/variations of these words.

CODSWALLOP/POPPYCOCK/BOULDERDASH:
Instead of "what a load of bovine excrement (or the less correct term for that); I'll use one of my three picks above and feel a whole lot more satisfied for it.

Of course, not all of them are for when I'm irked :-) sometimes it's just because they sound cool!

Like, SHINDIG waaaaaaay cooler sounding than "party" or "gt together", I have even been known to bust out "HOE-DOWN" every now and then!

I also "borrow" from the collection of phrases by the character Alf Stewart on Home and Away.
"Strike me pink!"
"Stone the crows"
and
"Struth Woman!"
I mean how fantastic would it be to play a character who has lines like that!? Genius if you ask me!!!

So please share yours? I'm always on the look out for new words/phrases to add to my list... and in saying that let me leave you with this little gem! No naughty words, but run it together and it sure makes you feel good about saying it!

Quite a few on mine are similar to yours actually...

Load of codswallop/balderdash, I use them a lot, otherwise:

Good golly miss molly
Mercy me
mercy maud
you fricken doorknob seems to be one of my favs at the moment, no idea where the idea came from but it works for me.

Heehee Julie, "holy whatever-she-happens-to-think-of Batman" is one a friend of mine uses all the time, random ones like "Holy Grandma's Bathrobe Batman!"

I also like shenanigans and tomfoolery as "I don't have time for you..." or "I've had enough of you..."

Sugar Honey Ice Tea ... thanks to Madagascar for that one (just take the first letters ...)

In our house we often use "Je t'adore" - say it slowly with a heavy French accent and it reminds the kids to "Shut the Door!"

And with an Irish background from their dad's side the word 'idgit' makes a lot of appearances.

"What in the blue hell?" and "Holy blonde cheerleader Batman" are mine :)
