Buffy saying/expressions we use in daily life. Part 1  
We all use "Buffyisms" in everyday life, so here is a poll to finally see what is the most popular Buffy expression. This poll will be a run like a cage match. This will be done in 3 maybe 4 polls. The top two answers in each question will be poll number two and the final 2 answers will be poll number 3. In this poll I have 50 Buffy expressions but I'm sure I missed some. Put any of the expressions I missed in the comments. Rember these are expressions you use in evryday life, just BVtS quotes not AtS. If I get an additional 10 expressions/quotes I will have another poll (between poll 1 and poll 2. for the add ons, So go to the poll, vote.

I actually use "Color me stunned" quite a bit, especially at this time of the year (elections).

Ohh, that's a good one. I definitely have to have a part 1a just to put that one in.

I use "color me _____" quite a bit. Probably more than any of the above, to be honest.

I knew I left out some very popular saying so I made a part 1A which does have "color me stunned"

I don't think I realized how much Buffy has invaded my brain - and vocabulary. Thanks for the great poll :D

Thanks, it was fun finding all the quoted but I know I missed a ton I'l have to do a part 1a before we move on to part 2.

Brilliant poll - hadn't realised I use some of these phrases till I read them and thought of local events to me!

I know, it's amazing how Buffy creeps into our daily life and we aren't totally aware.

Let's not forget about "Out for a walk, bitch."

Oh no we could never forget that one. I'm going to do a part 1a just for the ones I missed.
gillo: I wish to be tensegillo on October 31st, 2012 10:49 am (UTC)
I quite often use "Cuppa tea, cuppa tea, almost got shagged, cuppa tea", but, then, I'm British. And, of course, "Tea is soothing. I wish to be tense."

"We all have our crosses to bear" and "It's a big rock" also trip off my tongue more often than they probably ought to do...

Oh those are good ones. I thought of putting "cuppa tea, almost got shagged, cuppa tea" in the poll because it is it is one of my favorite quotes, but I wasn't sure anyone used it in RL. Glad to hear this quote is being used. I'm going to do a part 1a just for the ones I missed.

Whee! This poll made me smile this morning, and also think that maybe there are more beloved Buffy phrases I should work into daily usage... :D

Whee! This poll made me smile I'm so glad you enjoyed it

also think that maybe there are more beloved Buffy phrases I should work into daily usage. I was thinking the same thing when I was doing this poll.

"My hat has a cow" works nicely for awkward situations. Usually said, "I was all, 'my hat has a cow'."

Also, "give us a chant" (my icon is not accurate) is fun.

The rest of my conversational gambits come from Monty Python and The Hitch-hiker's Guide to the Galaxy.
