I think 'keep in touch' is fine for this - but here, that gets shortened to 'KIT'. Think of the seconds - literal SECONDS! - you could save in a year by saying and typing 'KIT' instead of 'keep in touch'!I'll stand up for 'touch base', actually. It's a stupid phrase (and I always have to be careful not to say 'touch cloth' instead by mistake) but it describes something that I have to do quite regularly for which there's no other simple expression, ie go and have a chat with someone without any specific information to give or get but to make sure that you're both basically happy and in agreement with how things are going on some project for which you're both partially responsible, and that there aren't any lurking issues in the offing...
That's a reasonably common saying Mr. Tea.I just heard a guy here say "clear as mud" to mean "very clear".
How do you mean? I know "clear as mud" is a common saying, but it means "not clear at all" (mud being notoriously unclear, at least in my neck of the woods). Or do you mean that the misuse of the phrase is common? I've heard of it being mangled in this way before - my brother told me he once had a famously dense boss who used to say things like that - but I'd have hoped it's not 'common', as such. That'd just be depressing.That's a reasonably common saying Mr. Tea.
"I'm going down the pub"I've bitched on here before about Americans who say "I could care less" to mean "I could NOT care less". The fuck is that all about? It's not like it's a syntactically challenging sentence!
