"Anywho...."
"'Ello, 'ello, 'ello." (Only when delivered in a painfully bad fake British accent. If you say "hello" three times in your normal voice, I don't care.)
"What can I do you for?"


This list will probably grow. These three were uttered in the course of a four-sentence, 27-decibel conversation by the admin sitting behind me. My left eye is twitching.

I have been saying "anywho" since I was seven. It's too late now to save me.

However, I try to reserve it for really close friends and family. Unfortunately for you, that means you might hear it escape my lips on ocassion. Fortunately, however, I am not guilty of the other two. Much.

I usually catch the historically (as opposed to hysterically) inclined with my phrase "anywho, not to be confused with Sutton Hoo."

(oops, forgot that I'm not perma-logged-in at work)

I was leading a training at work and found myself responding to people who wanted to ask a question like that chick who answers the phone for Accounting in Office Space, with the high cheeping sound at the end of her sentences. I realized I was doing it during class and couldn't stop myself. Like that sound makes me less threatening and makes people feel more comfortable asking questions.

I wanted to dig my larynx out with a spork.

"I don't mean to toot my own horn, but..."

Well, if you don't mean to, then don't!
