2011 Resolution

My resolution for 2011 is to avoid using two words: literally and actually. Even when people use the term "literally" correctly, I find that it's being overused. Perhaps we deal with hyperbole and sarcasm too much as people have been peppering their sentences with literally and actually to stress that they're being serious. I actually don't need to literally hear these words every twenty minutes to actually know that they're literally a plague (incorrect usage noted).

Consider this a one person protest against these two words.
