I've only heard this from family members but a desk top computer has been called a 'Grandpa Box'.

I know artisan or artisanal has been mentioned, but this morning I heard an advertisement for a purple religion private university that offers an authentic purple campus experience.

Do the marketing staff just search the dictionary for words and pick them at random?

Bah, I can't stand this.  Different devices have their own specialties. PCs have more power, hands down, because laptops sacrifice that for portability, and tablets even moreso.  I will never be without a desktop, ever.

Has anyone heard people say "Whatevs" instead of "Whatever"?  It doesn't bother me personally, but I've imagined people wincing at that one.

Cougar.  I see nothing wrong with women dating much younger men if that works for them.  I don't like how we treat that as so very bizarre.  Extra points for using it about women who date men who are not that much younger than they.

And if the age difference is noticeable, what's wrong with a good old-fashioned "Mrs Robinson"?

I keep seen STAN and just found out it means stalker/obsessed fan.  I hated it (and was confused) before learning the meaning and I hate it even more now.

Yes, from the song, but in some circles it just means more than a casual fan, but nothing sinister. People who go to lots of shows, read/watch lots of interviews, read blogs, search YT.

"Gotta go. The cat's on fire."

I can't remember if I mentioned this one earlier or not. But I seriously wish this phrase would be eliminated from EHell. It's one I abhor. And I find that I stop reading posts when I come across it. Everything a person says after that gets skipped.

I can't believe no one has mentioned the term "stabby" as in "I hate such and such celebrity-they make me stabby". That just irritates me. Just by saying you dislike someone, that should be enough to catch the meaning, why add stabby on the end of it?

"Put on your big girl panties"

"I just threw up in my mouth a little"

"mmm-kay"


I could happily live without ever hearing those again.

Oh one more expression to go with "stabby". Saying you dislike something with "the hatred of a thousand suns". That's just over the top. Again it's simpler to just say you don't like something.

Agree with most of those.  How about "White Chocolate"?

That stuff is only cocoa butter; for it to be chocolate it has to have actual cocoa in it.
