Atitude of platitude

I try never to use clichés in my writing (unless I'm on a tight deadline). The problem is that although I'm pretty familiar with the old ones, new clichés have a way of popping up, especially in the blogosphere, and they can seem pretty funny/powerful/whatever at first. But they're still just clichés.

So here are two newish clichés you won't catch me using (unless I'm on an extremely tight deadline).

1) I just threw up in my mouth a little (as here, here and here).

2) I'm looking at you, ... (this and this and this).

And qualifying these with as the kids say doesn't fix the problem.
