clynne shakes her broom at some hoodlums:

Sometimes the way language changes annoys me. For example, when I tell a guy that we can "hook up" later, I don't enjoy sounding like I may have propositioned him. Also, it irks me incredibly every time I have to respond to the question "Do you like to party?" with "no."

Dammit, when I was a young 'un, "hook up" didn't mean "engage in sexual intercourse" it meant "meet." And "party" meant "enjoy the company of others, if not actually in attendance at a planned social gathering, then at least at a reasonable facsimile thereof" not "smoke pot."

GET OFF MY LANGUAGE LAWN, YOU KIDS AND YOUR CRAZY TALK.
