    "bucket list" is getting squeezed in way too often lately. What exactly is a bucket list??? lol

    Rent the movie:
    The Bucket List is a 2007 comedy-drama film directed by Rob Reiner, written by Justin Zackham, and starring Academy Award-winners Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman. The main plot follows two terminally ill men (portrayed by Nicholson and Freeman) on their road trip with a wish list of things to do before they "kick the bucket."  It received mixed reviews from film critics, but was a box office success, opening at the top of the box office, and grossing a total of $175.3 million worldwide.
    Be sure to rent the movie before you kick the bucket!

      "win-win situation" just about makes me scream. It has been used to the point it is nauseating.


      Sounds like a lose-lose situation for you.

            When did "back in the day" start being a saying? I remember "back in the old days" but the wonder when the new one came along? Or at least new to me.

                "Fled on foot"
                "Not in my backyard"
                "Was taken to a local hospital"
                "Victim was apprehended"
                 
                The hospital one bothers me the most.

                  Wow.   That's a weird one.   What are they even trying to say or mean?

                    Been around for a while noe John. What gets me is when a 16-17 year old say, "Oh back in the day we...."
                    You're 16, how can anything be "back in the day"?

                        The hospital one bothers me the most.


                        Why?  Nowadays helicopters are often used to transport patients many miles; for example, Rockford IL is roughly an hour from me so I certainly wouldn't consider it local, but St. Anthony Hospital has one of the best "burn units" in the region and people seriously injured elsewhere are often taken there for treatment.

                          I agree with you Brad. In the Chicago area you may have a local hospital 3 miles away like mine but depending on the situation you may be sent just about anywhere to a hospital that specializes in your problem. Rush or Loyola come to mind for certain accidents, burns or neo-natal situations.  Both are over 35 miles from my house.

                              Agree!  You should hear me yelling at all the "alities and isms" our local news people use.

                                  Victim was caught. It's coptalk.


                                  I'm still missing something.  Why is the person who was caught called a "victim"?  Isn't the cuaght (or apprehended) person called the "suspect" or "perpetrator"?  
                                   The victim is the person who was  harmed by the perpetrator.  Why would cops try to catch a victim?   The victim didn't do anything wrong.   My brain is slow today, or Im really just not getting it. 
                                   
                                  Thanks.

                                                  The ones I hear lately,to the point of excessive repetition,is the trend of the "one-word-sentence".
                                                  "really?"
                                                  "seriously?"
                                                  "best. movie. ever."
                                                  It seems like back in junior high we spent an entire year diagramming sentences,breaking down the nouns-verbs-adjectives-adverbs etc and how they work together.It seems like that was a wasted year.

                                                    When repeating an address or a phone number, using O (the letter) instead of Zero. I work in the 810 area code and 99.9% of the people call it eight one Oh.
