When did that become a word?

So I'm cleaning out my old e-mail box and I see an old Time Magazine article in which a show runner had to show up to a screenwriting symposium without his two main writers, who got fired.

But if you're going to go that road with Heroes—with its gigundous scope and cast—then you should probably do some major paring down of characters.

Wait a minute, I'm still not used to "ginormous," which apparently is now an official word and now there's "gigundous?" I'm sorry, my ears cannot tolerate "gigundous," it sounds like a podiatrist speaking in Hindi about a foot condition.


Eh, don't mind me, I'm just cranky because my XboX 360 died.

Dale,

We of the blogging world will hold you that to Dale, and if you go back on your word by using that word? A plague of Honeypots will descend upon your house like a polyester swarm.

Paul,

Mais, oui!

Dale said...

I meant except for in that comment. Please don't send the plague my way!

Quin,

"Meh" is a beautiful thing and I can't remember a week when I haven't heard someone in America other than myself, say "d'oh!"
