Swear words I am going to retire come January 1st  
I want to reduce my swearing, since I am around more children these days. I tried this in 1998, and again in 2002, but over time, I have been slipping and become kind of a potty-mouth. This also forces me to become more creative when i am really mad, or if I *must* use them, they will have MORE power!

The following root swears (and their derivatives) I will try to never say again unless I REALLY need to:
- ass
- cock
- cootch
- cunt
- dildo
- fag
- fuck
- goddamn
- jackoff
- piss
- pussy
- shit
- spooge
- tits
- twat
- whore
- yabbie
... and any ethnic slur (like the n-word), which I never use anyway

The following are on a "maybe" list:
- bastard
- bitch
- crap
- damn
- dick
- hell

Any others you'd suggest?

no swear words to recommend, but I really want to stop saying dude. I'm not a bro or a surfer, so it really doesn't belong in my vernacular.

swearing....
I think I am going to try to swear more in 2010. I don't do it enough... and maybe I will make up for the swearing you don't do.

If the world is going to end in 2012, I have to be ready to turn it blue right before.

well, no swear words...but CURSES (lol), I need to keep that insidious "like" from slipping into my sentences when it doesn't belong! blasted elementary school conditioning... :/
