    Worse yet, after all these years, I cringe whenever she says:
    "Kai Yun". :p

    "PrrRRRRapppakomol"
    "BoorrrRRRRannnapRRRasertssoook."
    "Soina"
    But these are only pronunciations. As such, they don't strictly qualify as GCisms. :D
    ...but they're fun...

    Here's a new gem from the French Open MS final: "There's another opportunity -- and it's gone a-begging".

    You got to say this one with your hands on hips, a kinda disapproving/disbelieving look on your face...

    "WELL!!! WOULD you beLIEVE it ??!!!!?!?!!!"

    ...and this typical English understated introduction:
    "And sitting beside me today is a man who knows a thing or two about winning here..."

    It will be great if somebody forwards this thread to her attention, worth a chuckle or two from her at least. :D

    Umm, if you haven't noticed Cheung *is* a moderator, so he can pretty well be as pedantic as much as he wants! :p :D

    Do you understand irony? Neither do I. Yet, asking moderators to admonish a moderator was part of the fun.:p

    He is not correct anyway. Kilometer is the american spelling hence why your computer keeps changing it.

    But to put pedantry into overdrive, in the context of the sentence, it should then have read kilometers, not kilometer :p
