    As title! What words and phrases do you overuse?

    EDIT:
    Except for "Tex Rimmer".

    As a Taylor, you'd think I'd be using 'cut from the same cloth', yet I don't think I ever have.

    I used to be guilty of very unimaginative speech patterns. I spot them now and make an effort to avoid them. One of the worst was 'at the end of the day'. I made a specific effort to avoid using it. As a result it annoys the hell out of me when I'm around other people who use it a lot. And I work with loads of people who use it a lot!

    Well, I tend to use "well" way too much when starting a new sentence or paragraph. I had to edit my last "paranormal experience" response last night because of all the paragraph's and I had started each one with it. :redface:

    I can never stop talking about how JMC HAS A BIG COCK.

    Also, I throe a lot of books whenever I understand them better than whomever I'm talking to. That's a phrase in the sense of body language.
