    There seem to be some people who can't complete a sentence without the word like appearing multiple times. Drives me nutz!

    "awesome" has been so overused to the point of stupidity.

    The Grand Canyon is awesome.

    Pizza is not awesome.

    I would say "like." I know I have over used it beyond belief when trying to describe what something is "like."

    I have have to agree with "Like" but speaking for myself it's "Oh really?"

    awesome is getting less play but even as that happens tweet is beginning to be heard everywhere.

    "didn't you read my tweet?"

    "I tweeted it"

    "you can tweet us at wzzz news!"




    I get feeling really bad for that fellow nicknamed Tweet, he must be half up a tree by now.

    Whilst like is like the nost oversued word. I think Love/hate has been so overused the meaning is dead.

    "I love Chocolate biscuits"
    "I love R Kelly"

    Really? Do you?
