it all started when my friend sara used the word "belly" in her blog. i commented to her that it reminded me of a particular incident that occurred when we were in high school. commenting started me a'thinkin', and that led to the belly blog entry, which in turn elicited a comment from my friend matt, explaining to me that he LOVES the word belly, but does hate the words "tarmac" and "credenza".
i found this to be a stroke of kismet, as thursday after the belly blog entry, i started compiling a list of words i hate for various reasons. here they are:
flesh - it just bothers me.
slice - only in certain context, for instance when paired with flesh.
ooey gooey - for some reason, hearing someone else say this embarrasses me and makes me feel sorry for them.
jazzy - i always hear this spoken by somefat woman from michigan with a bad hairdo.
pizzazzy - same as above. also true that jazzy and pizzazzy cause me to feel himiliation for the person speaking them.
ooze - gross.
mash - when used as a verb. i prefer smash to mash any day.
kernel - GROSS!

masculinity - can't say it. masculinninny.
compote - doesn't sound as if it ought to be something edible.
loaf - i use it, but i don't like it. starbucks' pumpkin loaf is one of my favorite things in all of the world, but i feel a distinctive tinge of discomfort when having to order it.
maggot - makes my skin crawl just saying it. or hearing it. or reading it.
slacks - it's trousers.
oleo - just say margarine.
algae - reminds me of snot.
phlegm - speaking of snot... what an unattractive word.
moist - unless referring to cake or chicken, i make a point to steer clear of the word moist.

what are some of the words you hate?

    yeah, moist, discharge, panties (i'm writing quite the sentence here), porpoise, mature (esp. when peple say 'mah-too-er'), blouse, slacks, topping, nipper, grease (like "grease a pan"),

    words i love? chicken, booger, poop, dang, dag, dumbass, pecker, f**k (drawn out though; 'f********ck'), fart, neato (i think adam won my heart permanently the first time he said neato; it;s still makes me smaile when i hear him say it in my head), bummer, awesome, rad, cupola, addled, toddled, waddle (pretty much anything with "-ddle" on the end, i like)
