"All you need is a colon and a personal journey" Ha ha...for a second there I thought you meant the OTHER kind of colon, as in "My Colonoscopy Prep: The Journey from Bedroom to Bathroom."

I also think Edge Case/Digital Garage/New Context needs to get a new copywriter. Those hiking boots are wading through some mighty deep bs.

Wonderful rant.

My internet search journey has been amazingly awesome, as it has brought me to your post. This should be required reading! You're most likely not old enough to remember but in the 60's, the word, "Outrageous" was used in the same, overused catch- all way. I loathed it then as I loath the current journey, awesome, unpack (new one!) and amazing. All applied to the most mundane of subjects.

Thanks, Art! And yes, I DO remember "Outrageous", though for some reason, it never bothered me that much at the time (definitely not as much as "awesome"). There are too many annoying expressions today to even count (let's unpack them all). Thanks or reading...please share with others who might appreciate my rant.

I meant thanks FOR reading. :))


Thanks. The use of this word just keeps on getting worse.
