I don't know why I keep using the word "jazzed" lately. It's really irritating. I don't like the feel of it and it's especially distasteful to say it out loud. Let me give you an example of it's usage: "I'm so jazzed I get my Wednesday classes off this week!" Bleh! It makes me feel like a headache is coming on every time I use it. One other word that has been bothering me lately is the word "tickled", as in "I'm so tickled that you are coming to visit". AAahh! Why do I continue to use these ill choices of words? I wish they would leave my vocabulary bank alone. Scram! Git!

On the other hand, I just can't seem to get enough of the phrase "pleased as punch". I look for any opportunity available to employ it's use. I can't help but give a wide grin when I say it. Some other words I like to say/hear are regal, snack, and carnivorous.

Why do I have little word quirks? Surely there are word quirks in others. What are words you like and dislike?
