cheesy words

Some words start off sounding intelligent, then begin declining as more average people use them (usually in the wrong context).

1. ‘serendipity’ [ser-uh n-dip-i-tee]
It used to be a nice word 10 years ago, until non-intellectuals started using it to refer to everything – including the gum on their shoe. Hollywood also used it as a movie title.

2. ‘profound’ [pruh-found]

If you are one of the people who use this word indiscriminately, then I hate you. Do not use ‘profound’ as a substitute for ‘deep shit.’ Britney Spears’ problem is deep shit. Machiavelli’s pessimism about human nature is profound.

****

Can you think of other now-cheesy words?

I went to the beach last weekend. Thanks to this mini vacation, I have a tan and memories of the sand and water. I do not know exactly what to do with these memories. If I turn to them when I feel overworked, they will only make me feel worse (why can’t life be that fun, why do I have to work, what the hell am I doing with my life, etc etc etc).

So really, we create memories so we can look back at times in our lives when everything was better, and feel worse about where we are. Deep shit?

****

Business has been picking up, and I once again find myself the fulcrum of my company’s survival. If I do not plan out projects, we might lose clients/get sick because of working too hard. I-have-to-work. Now-now-now-now.

Yet I am delaying what I can delay. I’m too lazy. I’ve been watching strange movies and reading Kafka and drinking fake wine from a real wine glass (so grown-up).

****

Point: I am NOT ready for Monday – a strange state to be on a Saturday when you are workaholic like me.

illyria> "tan" is a now-cheesy word. it used to be reserved for people who have vacation houses in the bahamas. or i could just be jealous of your perfect tan. i look like an uncooked vienna sausage, with uneven spots and all.
