For some reason I HATE HATE HATE it. I don't think I've ever used it.

Ladygaggia Mon 26-Nov-12 22:25:54

I hate


chickpeanow Mon 26-Nov-12 22:27:45

Joyful, do you have reservations about 'tummy'? I don't like ickle so we can bond that way smile

'poorly' can go on the same shelf as 'tummy'.

goralka Mon 26-Nov-12 22:28:54

eww 'tummy loving care' by Martine McCrutcheon!!

apostropheuse Mon 26-Nov-12 22:29:08

I hate the word horrid. It's vomit-inducing.

goralka Mon 26-Nov-12 22:29:30

have you got a poorly tummy 3b1g?

Weirdly no, tummy doesn't bother me!

apostropheuse Mon 26-Nov-12 22:30:01

3b1g YES! poorly is almost as bad as horrid.

chickpeanow Mon 26-Nov-12 22:30:13

Oh no she di'n't did she??? (Martine M - did she really do a song called that...??)

manticlimactic Mon 26-Nov-12 22:30:52

'flavoursome' that annoys me. It's always used nowadays, where before it was hardly used.

chickpeanow Mon 26-Nov-12 22:31:10

apostropheuse, that's one's of my favourites. I am horrified. Horrified, I tell ye. What do you prefer in place of horrid??

3b1g Mon 26-Nov-12 22:31:12

And 'dicky'. Only ever really used before 'ticker'. Why?

apostropheuse Mon 26-Nov-12 22:32:03

horrible is much better than horrid. Horrid sounds pretentious and very Enid Blyton.

WorraLiberty Mon 26-Nov-12 22:32:40

Oh God yes...

Mummy/Daddy (when said by an adult to their own parents)

I don't mind tummy although I never really use it (the phrase...not the body part)

I love horrid and I do use poorly as well (usually in relation to small children who aren't properly ill but are definitely not well - it's kind of a sliding scale for me!).

chickpeanow Mon 26-Nov-12 22:34:23

Oops, apostropheuse. I did read Enid in my formative years, and am now evidently corrupted. HORRID.

apostropheuse Mon 26-Nov-12 22:34:59

I confess to having called my parents (RIP) mammy and daddy. It's pretty normal here!

WorraLiberty Mon 26-Nov-12 22:35:17

Oh and 'non' gets right on my fucking jugs too.

But surely you know that's unreasonable, non?

hmm angry Fuck off!

3b1g Mon 26-Nov-12 22:35:47

Well I think some of these words are just beastly!

ceres Mon 26-Nov-12 22:36:07


all horrible. although from the popularity of these words on here i am obviously in a minority. to be fair i have never heard anyone use 'grabby' or 'entitled' irl.

mercibucket Mon 26-Nov-12 22:36:33

Treat yourself


mercibucket Mon 26-Nov-12 22:36:33

Treat yourself


apostropheuse Mon 26-Nov-12 22:36:35

I read Enid Blyton too. However, it didn't make me into a ginger ale addict! So you have no excuse whatsoever.

WorraLiberty Mon 26-Nov-12 22:36:52

Well I think some of these words are just beastly!

And Ghastly to boot!
