Smashing. I said it out of nowhere, by accident at a Christmas party and everyone took the piss. Now it's regularly on the menu. I've always said groovy and that ain't gonna stop.
I'm going to have to try to add that one to my vocabulary.
relieved; yet disappointed that no one has mentioned this yet.
Took 130+ posts for someone to say that. props to you. Now in the spirits of things; I've been using the word "scram" a lot lately.
I think I might start using "scram" myself, good stuff.
Rad - I use it all the time.
Janky - I've used this one for about 10 years now. As a programmer these days, it is more relevant to my day to day operations than ever.
Howdy - I didn't start to use this until after I left Oklahoma for California. I don't know if I felt obligated to be the Oklahoman or what, but I basically use it to mean "How do you do?" which I assume is its origin.
Bummer - Used it a lot as a kid, and it's made a come back in the last year since I try to avoid saying 'that sucks' around customers.
No dice - I heard it on an episode of the Simpsons and have used it since. I get the impression that most people I use it around are unfamiliar with the phrase.
Baller - Last but not least, it's already at least a half decade old, and I say it from time to time, most likely inspired by Ryan Davis and Justin McElroy. QED, it's pretty out of date.
