Words and Phrases You Use Too Much

Original image

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" 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!

What Shows Up When You Google Yourself?

On Fridays we ask a bunch of unrelated questions. Your answers help get us through the afternoon. On to this week's topics...

1. What's the strangest thing someone could learn about you by Googling your name? And has anyone who shares your name done anything remarkable? There's a Jason English who's almost exactly my age. He allegedly bit someone's ear off and flushed it down the toilet. It will be tough to rise above that in the search rankings.

2. What's something you regret quitting?

3. If you could change one rule in any board game, what would it be? (If you have a specific house rule you think the world should adopt, let us hear it.)

4. Do the kids celebrate Mischief Night/Devil's Eve in your neighborhood? What's the worst incident you remember?

5. Got a question for the group? Ask away. Have a great weekend and happy Halloween!
