Time for a bitch session.  An amazing bitch session.

I can't take it.  Stop already.  Knock, knock.  Who's there?  Shh.  And a big preemptive shhh!!

Stooooooooooop saying the word amazing every 5 seconds!!   I mean it, world.  My head is about to explode.  Stop!!!

Does the entire planet have such a limited vocabulary that everyone has to use the same adjective for everything?

Don't even get me start about how inappropriate its usage is.  E.v.e.r.y.t.h.i.n.g.  i.s.  n.o.t.  a.m.a.z.i.n.g.

Examples:  "You look amazing!"  (What happened to great, nice, etc.?)

"That's amazing!"  (From a cooking show I just watched.)

"You're kind of amazing."  (That's the biggest gagworthy misuse of all.  Mainly because it's used in a show perpetuating belief in imaginary invisible silent beings--The Ghost Whisperer.  Why is this misuse?  Because, in contrast to all other usages of the word, the context here makes it the understatement of the century.  Not only do these beings exist and give a damn about what goes on here on Planet Earth, only one woman can communicate with them.  And that's only "kind of" amazing?)

I've caught myself accidentally uttering the word, and I wanted to stab myself in the eye out of pure disgust.
