"Oh my God, it's just so like totally egregious, you know?"

That was one of my office-mate's (R2 OB1) most frequent outbursts a few weeks back. My dictionary gives the definition of egregious as either (1) outstandingly bad or (2) distinguished, eminent. Given that at the time R2 OB1 was talking about how Elva, the InDesign expert (sic), had re-typed (and mis-typed) random data for more than a hundred tables of statistics, I took it at its worst meaning.

"Craptastic" is still doing the rounds.
