Words and Phrases You Use Too Much

Image credit: 

On Fridays, I post a series of unrelated questions meant to spark conversation in the comments. Answer one, answer all, respond to someone else's reply, whatever you want. On to this week's topics of discussion...

1. Have you ever been hypnotized? Or watched a friend get hypnotized? Or hypnotized someone yourself? For what purpose? Just curious.

2. What's a word or phrase you say too much? What new (made up?) word or phrase could replace that?

3. I just heard this one on the radio this morning. If you had one extra hour in the day just for you, how would you spend it?

4. Here's the sneaky market research-y question of the week: have you ever read a magazine, saw one of those "to see __________, go to thenameofthismagazine.com" callouts, and actually went to the site? I don't mean times where you liked a magazine and figured you'd give the website a shot. I want to know if a specific web tout piqued your interest.

Have a great weekend!
