Default Slang and catch phrases -- what are yours?

So... What sort of catch phrases and slang words do you find peppering your everyday conversation? Here are most of mine.

"Good heavens!" -- said in a old-ladyish manner such that you can imagine a withered old matron with her hand to her deflated bosom after having seen something shocking on television.

"Oh dear!" -- see above

"My word..." -- see above

"How delightful!" -- also said in an old-ladyish manner, but used to denote sarcastic pleasure in something going fuck-all wrong.

"How extraordinary!" -- said in a faux British accent, used in much the same manner as "How delightful!"

"Meow!" -- usually said at the end of a yawn. When meowing, I usually attempt to emulate Gir from Invader Zim.

"Delicious!" -- gleaned from a Castlevania game where this was what the succubus said every time she latched on to your neck. Used to denote pleasure, sarcastic pleasure, and in many other ways.

"Dude, srsly!" -- pronounced "dude, surslee!" -- usually used when witnessing someone committing a traffic stupidity, such as the two cars that plowed through the crosswalk this morning while my boyfriend and I were out for a stroll.

"Teh ebuls" -- pronounced "teh e-bulls" -- used when sarcastically denoting displeasure, as in "We can't go to that restaurant because their sushi is teh ebuls. I puked for a week after that last time."

"What a strange bit of buggery!" -- used when witnessing an unusual occurrence.

"Hmm... queer." -- also used when witnessing an unusual occurrence.

"Because you fail at life." -- used when sarcastically slamming someone for a minor slight or mistake.

"I thought I smelled failure..." -- also used when sarcastically slamming someone for a minor slight or mistake.

"...of doom." -- used on just about everything because everything is better with doom, as in "Kittens... of doom;" "Fried, breaded shrimp... of doom;" and "First Congregational United Church of Christ... of doom."

"Everything is ruined forever!" -- used when witnessing something of minor or comical unpleasantness.

"Oh, God, I have to go wash now!" -- also use when witnessing something of minor or comical unpleasantness, especially if it happens to be of any perverseness.

"w00t/woot" -- used to express minor approval or pleasure.

"Meh." -- Used to express indifference.

"Oh noes!" -- used to express feigned disapproval or horror.

"Grunties" -- underwear, as in "Ah... a basket full of nice, clean grunties straight from the dryer!"

"Beast/Beastlet" -- Cats/kittens

"Fanged Beast" -- Cats

"Dogma" -- Dogs

In addition, I'm also fond of interjecting random snippets of the song "The Bulbous Bouffant" by The Vestibules into everyday conversation.

Noms- "Let's go get noms!" Or "I am going to nom upon you!"

Awesomesauce- "You rock like awesomesauce!" or "Awesomesauce over spiffy noodles!"

Rawr, and various other animal noises. Depending on tone the meaning can be everything from 'I love you" to "I'm hungry" to I am so bored please save me.

I say things like Nifty, and Indeed alot in everyday converstations as well

I'm kinda boring, so I only have a couple:

--a bazillion (a big number)
--deers (plural deer); every other animal gets the correct plural word, but multiple deer are always deers
--oi means oh, my
--dude means wow

I also use awesomesauce!

Most of mine are on the vulgar side. "f**kmonkies" is one. "Douchenozzle" is another.

I refer to my trusty YakTrax as "tractionful".

"You just think you're all that and a side of fries, don't you?"
("Side of fries" can be replaced with "bag of chips", "chicken chimichanga", or whatever else I feel like subbing in there at a whim.)

YAY! Another awesomesauce person! I seriously did not know it was a thing until I found a shirt with the phrase on it at Dragon Con!

As far as vulgar one, I say douche canoe a lot.

Wha? (my standard response of confusion... one of my coworkers purposely tries to get me to say this. lol)
What the fuck?
Lawls (lols)
Bitches (when trying, and failing, to sound ghetto)

I use emotes and emoticons like crazy.
I'll even emote out loud on occasion.
Like, in conversation with someone: 'Idk, shrugs.'

I call my boyfriend alternately: love/my love or mate/my mate

ETA: Dude is usually said in one of two ways: 1) Dude, as in addressing a person. Only someone I'm familiar with. 2) Duuuude, elongated u, to emphasis something.

Ewwwwwww - used when I find something old in the back of the fridge
GAAAAAHHHHDDD!! - used most often at work in regard to the POS computer system
Razzaaay!!! - Just a silly way of saying "Razzie" which is my boycat's name
Schmiggie-Schmaggie-Schmoo - Our favorite way to referring to the girlcat, Maggie
Hello Bunny Wackets! - my way of greeting my sister's three rabbits
Where's the coffee fairy? - used at home all the time
I'm ever so pissed! - stolen from an episode of The Simpsons
Remember my innocence! - stolen from Benny Hill
Fuck this - muttered at work every time the computer crashes
Also a couple of rather vulgar phrases that pop out when I'm pissed. Won't repeat them here.
Not sure who I am anymore, where I am, or where I'm going. I only know where I've been, and you don't get far if you spend all your time looking backwards.
