Trending words are not in my wheelhouse

What in the holy hell is a wheelhouse? I think of my hamster running in his cage when I hear the word wheelhouse.

I am fully aware that a language that does not grow, eventually dies–think Latin here. But still!

Here’s a list of words that make me bonkers (please forgive if any of these words are in YOUR wheelhouse!):

  1. Trending. What ever happened to “trendy?” Trending is a verb. Trendy is an adjective. Why the change? Was the “y” somehow offensive?
  2. Wheelhouse. WTF? I’m going to leave it at that.
  3. Ginormous. Kill me. Kill me now. I hate this word so much I would vomit on it were it a tangible thing.
  4. Amazeballs. Makes me immediately think of a guy with ginormous balls. Oops! πŸ˜‰ J/K.
  5. Chillax. If anyone ever told me to chillax I’d hit them in the face with a hammer.
  6. Stacation. Is it really so hard to say, “I’m staying home and relaxing?” Why not, “houscation?” or “homcation?” or “cheapcation?”
  7. Woot. Probably not as bad as I think it is but this wretchedly stupid bitch where I used to work would use it all the time to try and distract us from her massive failures at her job. It did not work.
  8. Anyhoo/anywho. I know, a lot of you probably use this word, but it makes my brain itch.
  9. Butthurt. Ummmm…man, do I have LOTS of things to say about this one. The image that immediately pops into my mind is, well, probably too horrible to articulate here, though I’m DYING to do so.

I’m quite certain I use words that sometimes make people want to duct tape my face, but I’m okay with being annoying. I just hate it when other people are. Again, soooo kidding! I’m feisty this morning!

In parting, may I just say that using ginormous words while describing what’s trending is so in my amazeballs wheelhouse that if you are reading this on your stacation and get butthurt while doing so, all I have to say is chillax. Anyhoo…Β  πŸ˜‰

And I think I may have just turned into the Mayor of NY since apparently we both like banning words–though I think mine make a hell of a lot more sense. πŸ™‚ Oh, I almost forgot, woot woot!

  1. What about bailiwick? Lamest word ever. And was I hallucinating or did Randy Jackson use ‘ginormous’ on Idol last night, then act like he just made the word up?


  2. You may be able to imagine that some of my co-workers aren’t the brightest folks around, and when they use words like this, it puts a distinct notion in my mind that they are stupid and I avoid talking to them because of it. Woot and anyhoo are “words” that I associate with a couple of my “colleagues”. Nice choices.


    • Why thank you sir! I’m glad you liked my selection of dumbass words πŸ™‚ Next time one of them uses a word on the list, splash hot fry oil on them. That will cure them quickly! πŸ˜‰


        • I do have an evil streak a mile wide!!! πŸ™‚ I figure if you are going to threaten people (in a joking way, OF COURSE, and not to their face because ultimately I’m a chicken) you might as well be creative! πŸ˜‰ My hubby loved the idea of me making a death match video games. I actually help design software, but nothing nearly that fun! πŸ˜‰


  3. Hmmm, well I never really gave the word trending much thought. I used to watch Whale Wars and Deadliest Catch and heard the word wheelhouse alot. Yeah, stacation annoys the ever loving crap out of me. I just call it anal glaucoma as I can’t see my butt being at work that day. Lol, butthurt. I ask my supervisor if he has a case of that after his morning meetings everyday.


    • The word trending hurts my soul. I just hate it. Okay, it doesn’t damage me to the core, but I do find it significantly annoying. Wheelhouse is brand new to me. I think I’ve only starting hearing it in the last few months and I just keep thinking there have to be better words. “Anal glaucoma.” I am disturbed! πŸ™‚
