    Fellowship.  That's a church-y word and my principal applies it to whenever the staff is getting together for meetings.

    For some reason I've never liked the term "lover".  It makes me want to puke.  I don't know why...but I can't stand the term. 

    I also don't like the term "prego".  Another one I'm not sure why I don't like.  There are a few terms for pregnant women I don't like.  Preggers is another. 

    My mom uses the word "say" a lot when starting out a question and it irritates the snot out of me.

    Wifey. Not sure why. Hubby is fine, but wifey makes me want to gag.

    I think I have quite a large list of words I don't like, but one that makes me barf a little is the word "diddle". I had a guy friend that used that word in place of "had sex with" and it just made me think of him as a total pervert.

    I've also thought "lover" was a word that conveyed too much information. We were looking through a book of wedding vows and many of the vows included the word 'lover" and we immediately passed on those.

    Ditton on Preggo. Pregnant woman are not a spaghetti sauce brand.

    Jay says "Chez" as an "exclamation" word. No idea where he got it. Drives me nuts. That's why he does it now.

    I agree with preggers and wifey.  I also hate baby bump. 

    This is a little different, but I hate it when people call me Steph without me giving them permission.  But maybe I'm just a jerk.  Like on the boards it's fine because my screen name is Steph, but in real life it bugs me.  If I introduce myself to you as Stephanie, I expect that you will call me that.  That's seriously the fastest way for me to dislike you.

    I don't like prego or wifey either. I can't stand ratchet either. My brother uses it all the time to describe someone who looks bad.

    Haha  My term for my husband's ex-girlfriend before me is "old girl".  It cracks me up whenever I use it.

    This is random, but before I got pregnant I didn't like "preggo", but now that I am "preggo" it doesn't phase me at all. It is actually kind of funny to me, especially to refer to myself as that. And baby bump - I LOVE it, probably bc I have one! :)

    Also random. Jeff says hundo or hundy to refer to a one-hundred dollar bill. It annoys me to no end, which I'm sure is why he does it. It bugs me so much!!!

    There is a girl at my work that likes to chit chat ALL DAY LONG! And every time she comes by my desk or anyone else's, she walks up and says "Goooooooood." I put so many o's in there because that's how she draws it out. I personally don't like when a person says that, but it's even worse with her. She says it for no apparent reason, just so that we know she's there.

    There's a few people at work who say "OK" weird.  I don't know how to describe it, but whenever I hear it, it makes me want to scream.

    Umm, also I don't get the "Who dat??" that everyone was using yesterday in terms of the Saints.  What the heck?  Where did that come from? Do I need to be from NOLA to understand that?  I don't know...I guess I just got tired of reading the bazillion status updates with the gramatically incorrect "Who dat?".

    I hate "mines"  As in, "That's mines."  There's only 1 of you.  You are not plural.  I also hate, "Where  you at"  and when people say "pee".

    Most of the above.... I won't repeat them all.  Pregnant or any form of the word bothers me.   I think I prefer expecting or expectant.  I don't know why...
