    Here's a novel little thread. I got asked ages ago what my top 3 favourite words or phrases were in order of preference. You know, those things you say a lot that your friends come to expect on a regular basis.

    Mine are:

    1. Ace, things are often 'ace' when I'm happy with them or think they're good.
    2. Groovy, another word for good, I'm trying to get out of using this one though because it gets me strange looks.
    3. Ye Gods! - an estimation of incredulity, shock or annoyance.

    A rather amusing page is one that belong to a friend of mine and is sort of a list of amusing phrases. You can see it here.

    So there's mine, what's yours?

    Hi,

    A lot of the things I say regually arn't really suitable for this forum . If you wan't to know you can always aks me on ICQ .

    My top 3 phrases that are suitable are:

    1. Indeed
    2. Top Bannana
    3. Munchies. (I say "I have a serious case of the Munchies" when I am hungry).

    Any of my mates would tell you that I come out with some pretty wierd things but I can't remember any of them. If I say any I will try and note them down and I will post them.

    "works for me..." (meaning I agree with that, sounds good..)

    I also use "sweet" and "cool" quite frequently.. but the works for me one is something I say a lot.
