Desperately Seeking Adjectives

Before blogging, Facebook, and life on the internet, my circle of family, friends, and acquaintances with whom I had regular contact was much, much (MUCH) smaller. I doubt it's different for many others. But now that there are all these blogs I read, Facebook statuses I comment on, and photographs I check out, I've begun to run out of adjectives.

I see a picture that is just amazing and stunning.

I read a blog post that's hilarious. Or sweet. Or so true.

I comment on Facebook with awesome, sweetness, or bummer.

I feel as if I use the same adjectives over and over and over and over.


Lather, rinse, repeat.

cool

So I've decided that I need to retrieve the thesaurus, peruse the dictionary, and entreat my fellow bloggers, Facebookers, friends, and family to help come up with some different adjectives. What have you got? Leave me a comment with some interesting adjectives that could be used to respond in the various venues. Let's see what kind of a list we can create.

This is a great post! I had to laugh because I just used bummer tonight on fb. Someone seems to have walked off with my thesaurus, so I'll have to get back to you on some great synonyms. I wonder if there's a site somewhere here on the www....

Have a great weekend, Dianne!

I think I say "love it" waaaaay too much :) But when I write a blog post, thesaurus.com is my friend. Amber has some nice choices!

I feel just like you--so I find myself not commenting unless the photo or post strikes a chord with me and I can leave a sincere comment.

I went to dictonary.com to the thesaurus(I love it!) and looked up "Perfect" because this is so perfectly true - so all the words to describe your point are below! LOL:
ace, bad*, beyond compare, boss*, capital, champion, chief, choicest, cool*, culminating, finest, first, first-class, first-rate, foremost, greatest, highest, incomparable, inimitable, leading, matchless, nonpareil, number 1, optimum, out-of-sight, outstanding, paramount, peerless, perfect , preeminent, premium, prime, primo, principal, sans pareil, second to none, super, superlative, supreme, terrific, tops, tough, transcendent, unequaled, unparalleled, unrivaled, unsurpassed
