Two words in particular I catch myself using lately are "terrible" and "apparently." For instance, I wanted to start this post out with the following: "Apparently, I cannot stop saying apparently. That's terrible! Terribly apparent, really."

I seem to get into a linguistic rut. We have this beautiful, anachronistic, ridiculous language. Why have I stopped using most of it?

What about you, what words do you find yourself using too often? Are there words or expressions you simply cannot give up? Do they come and go with the latest fashion?

Some of my current favorites:
- anything derived from "not my circus; not my monkeys"
- apparently
- terrible
