I often catch myself wanting to say "POD!" aloud in conversations with other people.  ;D

I have used "oh crudmonkey" so much I heard my BFF use it the other day.
That's my purse! I don't know you!

I love all of these  and I find myself "podding" things quite often.

I, too, mentally giggle a lot when people talk about actually playing the board game Scrabble.  My brain took a few minutes to start functioning again the time when my "Scrabble" partner invited me to play actual Scrabble...

I have used some of the monkey expressions.  I like having the term "Cut Direct" for completely cutting someone off - and I go so far as to ignore the person in public.

I like POD too, but haven't seen it around these boards for a while now. Do any eHellions still use it?

I got to introduce my mother to "not my aquarium, not my land crabs" today. She was thrilled to death. ;D

She offers one of her own to go with it: "not my wheel, not my hamster."
"So, what did you wish for?"
"I wished for... World domination, of course."

I like the wheel & hamster one - after a nocturnal critter with a wheel kept me  up half the night as a guest, I really don't understand the fascination with them as pets...although the noise explained why the critter and its wheel were in the guest room instead of the child's bedroom.

I forgot about the Direct Cut.  I introduced the term to a private scam-fighting board I belong to.  We use it to fight the trolls we encounter on other boards.  It works.  Its perfectly polite and it drives the trolls crazy.

Not my favorite at all in terms of having ever used the term.  But does anyone else remember a post from several years ago that used the term "deer snot uprising"?  As I said, I've never had occasion to use it (and can't think of any situation where its use would be appropriate), but for some reason it stuck in my brain!   ;D

Yes, a lawyer (or was she a paralegal) was taking notes on a family issue - when she looked down, instead of what she thought she'd written, it looked like "deer snot uprising" - and since it was with inlaws (hers or his - one of their families did not recognize boundaries at all) - it seemed almost appropriately gross for how egregious their boundary crossing was.

I too giggle when I see the word "Scrabble" in it's proper context.  You guys have ruined me.

Ehell acronyms drive me nuts but I find myself thinking or saying "Don't engage the crazy" when the situation calls for it.

"Don't poke the crazy".

I use this a lot with clients who get mad and call me about their troubles. It's amazing how many corporate emails and board meeting minutes now say "Don't poke the crazy" because of me and E-hell.

Add me to the list that has to think about which game is being played when Scrabble is mentioned...
