If you are previewing something or getting an early glimpse, you are taking a PEEK. If you're at the summit of the mountain, you're at the PEAK. Please make a note of it.
I'm pouring over this post very carefully.
Hey, could you make the slug a regular thing, Alex?
@Murgatroid It's usually just implied.
You know what's a ridiculously difficult phrase to spell correctly, though? "SNEAK PEEK."
For example, I definitely just attempted to type "sneek" on my first try. WTF.
@mbmargarita – in my backwater part of the world I'm seeing "sneak peak" until I want to cover my face with fingers and then pique out between them.
@Daniel Sargeant Oh my God, yes. As one of the many people who emailed that to me pointed out, it's the Favorites section that make it particularly great.
@Daniel Sargeant Well there's the pinnacle of social media. You might even call it, the zenith, or what's the word I'm searching for? Lagrange Point?
@Alex Balk You do not want to mess with the Langley girls LAX debutantes because they will "formally fuck you up."
I, sir, am neither of those things. I am taking a leek.
@SidAndFinancy Be sure you do it in the Lou.
Are there any Stealth Mountain-like things that correct people when they use "apropos" to mean "appropriate"? Because it's rampant, and wrong.
This is just of fit of pique.
Peek is terrible even when used correctly, with a possible exception made for games played with toddlers. And no one should be using apropos to mean anything.
It's been that kind of weak.
Saw a headline recently that said something "ran the gauntlet" when the meaning was "ran the gamut."
Also hated: "Everyday" (ordinary) to mean "every day" (once in 24 hours). The words are different. "The Cubs start an everyday pitcher every day."
A co-worker was trying to give me some props in a staff meeting and he said he wanted to "single me out for special condemnation." I told him to talk to my wife.
Not rampant, thankfully, but shudderbug recently made me reexamine everything.
