you’re on the side of making a type-o, and then instead of admitting you spelled a word wrong claiming you made up a totally new one that means the exact same thing as the one you were trying to spell/say?
Also: type-o is a classification of blood. Perhaps you meant typo?
(See what I did there?)
Inadequate to what? I’m not laying out a comprehensive definition. I’m pushing back against those who would retire the term on the grounds that it’s overbroad, overused, past its expiration date, etc. My announcement works in a time machine, too.
Hippie is just a word for a subsection of youth culture.
I’m sure plenty of people were sick of “beatnik” by 1965, too. But if the kid in front of you is wearing a beret and reading Howl, we have a word for that.
Hey there, hmwt. How’s it going?
Slow news day, I know. Not much going on around the office for me, either. We got a new cappuccino machine about a month ago, but the novelty has pretty much worn off.
You know there are all kinds of services that track information for websites, right? They log IP addresses so you can see if someone is feverishly clicking on a particular link. I don’t know why anyone would refresh a specific link a million times, not unless they wanted to see if something had changed, or unless they had a particular stake in the matter.
How is Los Angeles? I hate Los Angeles. Every day I’m not sucked down into that smoggy sprawl is a personal (and professional) victory. But maybe you like it? I know a lot of people who do. Good for them.
You’re a stuntman? My ex-gf is a stunt-person! Maybe you guys know each other! Do you know all the words to the The Fall Guy theme song? I totally would, if I were a stuntman. Everyone should have a theme song. I work in a medical clinic, so mine is St. Elsewhere. I felt ER was a little over the top.
(And yes, I very much agree that misspelling “Academy” would undercut their case a bit. I agree so much that I put it in the last sentence of my original post.)
I’ve been thinking of changing my theme song to House, but to be honest the stakes around my workplace aren’t that high. And House doesn’t have much comic relief. My job has a lot of comic relief. Plus, I can’t bring myself to identify with the undead corpse that is Scrubs. Nine seasons of Zach Braff, but re-upping Arrested Development was too much to ask?
