And "hella". Oh, god.

INCORRECT. The Bay Area will never get rid of this. I refuse to ever allow it to happen. I've got Albanians starting to say it now, so now the virus is spreading elsewhere. YOU CAN NOT CONTROL IT'S SPREAD MUAHAHAHA

Whenever anybody references how weird they are.  This is fucking annoying.  Interestingly, I've noticed that the sort of people who say these things are the people who are generally the "normal" people I know if you can restrict anybody to that definition.

Also, wicked is boss.

Yeah chances are that if you keep saying that you're "weird" or "random" then you are probably mindnumbingly mundane. If, however, you wildly lash out and beat an old woman to death on the train for sneezing too loud, well then you can safely say you're weird.

In this vein, using "oh lol I am so random" is no excuse for being a total fuckwad in public. It's called common goddamn etiquette, motherfuckers.

I say I am weird a lot. But its kind of a way to defend myself.
Example:
(While talking to a coworker who loves All American Rejects and bands like that)
Me: oh man! I love noise groups!
Her: (odd stare)
Me:....I know. I'm weird.

(While discussing everyone's use of the phrase "yeah, but")
Me: Whenever someone says "yeah, but" I picture a sort of nonexistent creature. Like a jackalope, but more like a cross between a frog and a rabbit.
Coworkers:(odd stare)
Me: I'm weird, I know.

(While talking about things we like to do at home)
Me: Sometimes, I just like to dress up, and sing Dresden Dolls songs really loudly.
Friend: ....uh huh.
Me: I'm weird. Sorry.


So I am actually pretty strange. I once got kicked out of a living arrangement because I said "too many off the wall things" all the time. So I think I can say that I am weird.

I smell everything.


I am making a card for a guy who I've had a crush on forever, and used to fool around with's girlfriend because I think she is awesome. The dude is one of my best friends.

I like to look at/show off scabs and scars. I've been refering to my allergic reaction skin damage as zombie chest and have been showing those curious.


I asked two of my friends if they thought I was weird. They both said yes. Only one said I needed to change it. I am pretty sure that I am awesome, though.

It is actually me wearing that mask. I own it. I wear it when I need to become LuchaPants. My superpowers include heckling bands that suck, laughing, and flipping people off.

"Yes, no, maybe so?"

I have upgraded from this to "yes no maybe yes yes no yes no yes maybe no no yes?" or some similar combination (possibly longer). If it a yes no question I drop the maybe.
although I usually only do this when I'm pretty sure I already know the answer.

Mine is when someone uses the phrase "whole 'nother". Like, "man I was so wasted I had a whole nother bag of Doritos."

Bad example sentence, but still... yeesh. Everyone around here uses that phrase, and I guess it's not even the phrase itself that bothers me that much, but that people use it because they don't even know better. They don't even stop ever to think about the language they speak and how nother is not a word. Yep.

OH SNAP

I'm currently unemployed and have been doing some volunteer work with the mentally challenged at the local community center. Unfortunately, someone introduced the phrase into the group's vocabulary recently, except they have little real grasp of context, so they've just been yelling it at the top of their lungs whenever anything at all happens. I haven't kept time, exactly, but the chorus cannot be stopped and can easily span a couple commercial breaks. Now, really, I can put up with anything, but I think some of the other volunteers just might go insane soon if something isn't done.
