** "Welcome to the fantasy zone! Get ready!" when psyching myself up for something (as a kind of "Let's do this!" or "Here we go!") thing. It usually results in me failing embarrassingly at it. Doubles as a ShoutOut (to ''VideoGame/SpaceHarrier'').

** "Welcome to the fantasy zone! Get ready!" when psyching myself up for something (as a kind of "Let's do this!" or "Here we go!") thing. It usually results in me failing embarrassingly at it. Doubles as a ShoutOut (to ''VideoGame/SpaceHarrier''). Nowdays, I use it when beginning a boss fight in a game. There are also two variations.
*** For final bosses, I use "The final stage is before you! Now is the time to show your true skill! Welcome to the fantasy zone! Get ready!"
*** For a super-hard BonusBoss, I use "Welcome to the danger zone. Are you ready?"
*** For giant bosses, it's "Warning! The huge enemy (enemy name) is approaching! Welcome (etc.)"

** Again when playing games, if I'm fighting a boss that needs some kind of "prep" before it can be attacked (i.e. destroying a barrier, debuffing, killing smaller enemies first, or whatever), once I get to the point where I can actually start doing damage to the boss, I'll shout [[Manga/JojosBizarreAdventureDiamondIsUnbreakable "Okay, Master! Let's kill da ho!"]]

** "As opposed to metaphorically X?" Used in response to someone using "literally" to describe something that can't be anything ''but'' literal.

* WaxingLyrical: I do this a '''lot'''. I even [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] it at one point.
-->''(when talking to a friend who said she feels embarrassed for crying easily)'' Well, [[Music/{{REM}} everybody cries. And everybody hurts sometimes.]] ...They should write a song about that.

Describe me? Well, okay. I'm an immature envoy from distant lands, an extreme anime, gaming, and RP nerd. I contribute to TVTropes pages when I come up with stuff to contribute, and I also made the Fireball20XL page and... pretty much wrote everything on it. I'm [[ThereIsNoSuchThingAsNotability notable]] for refusing to use the words This Troper or This Editor, instead referring to myself in the first person whenever I make a reference to myself on the site. Which I don't do anyway, because that's bad.

** If I'm playing a game and need an enemy to come towards me/follow me, I'll often say "Tule tule tule!", which is basically what Finnish people say when they're calling a pet to them. (Literally "Come come come!" in the imperative).

** "Hmmm... That's a wonderful idea!" (sometimes without the "Hmmm..."), whenever someone offers me something that I really like (such as going out to eat or something). Essentially, it means "I willingly and enthusiastically accept your offer." I also use it when I actually get a really good idea. (And yes, it comes from ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'', which itself got it from ''WesternAnimation/BugsBunny'').

** When I was at school, I tended to say "I need a piece of pen and a paper" a lot.
** Generally, I make a lot of spoonerisms, both accidental and deliberate.

I also host a radio show on http://rendezvousradio.ca every Monday from 12:00-17:00 GMT. I play mostly anime and video game songs, but pretty much anything goes.



* VerbalTic: "Saa..." has become this for me recently. I tend to start most of my sentences with it. I also say "But anyway" or "But yeah" way more than most people do. I have others too, like "No?" (Finnish sound roughly equivalent to "Huh?") when someone wants my attention, "Uwa..." as a noise denoting surprise or interest, and saying "on the" instead of "in the" (like "What on the hell?" and similar phrases). I also say "Something like..." and "...or something" a LOT (sometimes even both in the same sentence).

I also say "Something like..." and "...or something" a LOT (sometimes even both in the same sentence). On my radio show, I noticed that I say "so to speak" far too often, so I started making a conscious effort not to say it. It still slips out sometimes, though.
