“the modern day”—Impossible to use in a sentence without sounding like a pompous ass.
“dip into”—Also ew.
“sample”—Do you ever sometimes get mental pictures associated with a word? Not, like, sensible word-association, but an image that corresponds with the shape or sound of the letters? “Sample” looks like Uriah Heep to me. That same open-handed cringe.
“well written”—This is meaningless. It’s literally just code for “something I like”.
“plumping for”—Stop. Plumping is for pillows and partridges and bosoms. That’s it.
“truly believe”—Any verb or adjective preceded by “truly”, actually. It is the most craven of modifiers.
“snippet”—Too twee by half.
“chunkster”—Sounds like frat lingo for “hurricane of vomit”. Not even remotely cute.
“brilliant”—See “well written”, above. If it doesn’t actually shine with the light of the sun, or like the facets of a diamond, I don’t wish to hear it described thus.
“thusly”—Apropos of using the word “thus”, above. “Thusly” isn’t a fucking word, cut it out.
“sneak peek”—Yet more ew. This is the verbal equivalent of the weird old-fashioned drawing on the Coppertone bottle where the dog is pulling the little girl’s underwear down and you’re like…the Broadcasting Standards Agency is okay with this?
“sneak peak”—Peaks can’t sneak. That is kind of the point of them. Next.
“peeved”—Goes into the same box as “gosh darnit” and “Land O’Goshen”. The one labeled SWEARWORDS FOR PEOPLE WHO WEAR WHITE TRAINERS WITH JEANS.
“gal”—Inexplicably sinister, like a Dolly Parton bobblehead.
