    not exactly the same thing, but I feel like english doesn't have enough words to say that something is "good" so every other word gets abused. Maybe they exist and I just don't know about them.

    "hey how was your day?"
    "awesome/epic/amazing/insane/unreal...I went to the beach!"

    is it really awe-inspiring that you went to the beach?

    "wow, just wow"

    Not only is this saying hackneyed, but if you really meant just wow, you would only say wow!

    Myriad.

    If I see another fucking news article with that in it . . . myriad thoughts of violence creep into my head. Reporters trying to prove they went to college.

    I would love to see a paragraph put together using every word/phrase someone has posted.

    When it gets to five pages, let's have a contest. First prize = pink tie (I am sure someone will donate it and the winner just has to pay for shipping).

    I saw "pre-Madonna" the other day. Took me a while to figure out what the person was talking about, but it made me laugh.
