New Phrases of 2012

    I thought I would write a little about a few phrases that seem to have been used this year that I've come to notice.  If they're not new to you, then maybe it's just different to me.

    'REALLY?'--  If I don't say it outloud, it sure doesn't mean I haven't thought it.  I think this one syllable word has replaced the three syllable word, Seriously?.  I think the shorter the word, the more emphatically we can say it.  It's short for 'I can't believe they just did that.'
   'OCCUPY WALL STREET'--  aka slackers who want to live in a tent in the city instead of working.  This so-called protest movement was media driven and went no where.  The 99 percent they called themselves rarely even knew what their purpose was, except to draw attention.
   'JEGGINGS'--  the wonderful idea of joining jeans and leggings into one item of clothing.  I love them.  The comfort of denim with the slim look of leggings.  Not intended for all sizes or men, just sayin'.
   'HOT MESS'--  this is a sarcastic description of something thrown together and a jumbled collection of disorder.  I've heard it recently at an ornament party and about my table here in my room.  Yes, it has a lil sting to it but if it's true, it
  'OBAMANOMICS'--  you earn it, while Obama gives it away.  The debt sentence for America. The trickle up theory of poverty.

   While there is nothing new under the sun, we can be assured the Word of God will never change and will stand the test of time.  That is where I find the phrases to put my hope and trust in.
