The informal French exclamation et patati et patata might be one of most useful expressions you never realized you needed. It comes from patatin, patatan, the French equivalent of "giddyup." Imagine the image the onomatopoeic French expression evokes: someone's mouth running off like a galloping horse.


   Elle m'a dit de faire la lessive, les lits, la vaiselle et patati et patata.

She told me to do the laundry, make the beds, do the dishes, yada yada.
