Like, Totally AWESOME!

I use it too much.  The word awesome.  I need another adjective that can properly convey my need for "awesome" in my posts.  It's a shame that "bitchin'" and "gnarly" are now overused and associated with a cocky, coke-headed butt puppet*.  Thanks, Sheen**.
(I know I said I'd only refer to him in one post the other day, my apologies.  I swear this should be the last.)

Totally!
Synonym suggestions: 
amazing
boss (I like!)
astonishing
wonderful (yawn)
stunning
magnificent
hairy (what the??)
impressive
overwhelming 
cool
fantastic

What word would you suggest?


*I have to give credit to Meredith for "butt puppet."  My new favorite!
**By the way, I used to think Charlie Sheen was HOT.  Back in his "Topper Harley" Hot Shots days...sigh.

  1. I love the word awesome. But my second favorite is RAD. Followed quickly by fantastic.

    I've never heard of "hairy", and am glad it hasn't caught on. Ick.

  2. GBA**
    Galactic
    Kicka**

    ... these are the words I use and I was recently threatened by my H to please stop using the word "galactic" to describe EVERYTHING. So maybe we should do a Pen Pal exchange? I'll use awesome for a week, and you can use GBA or galactic and let me know how it feels?

  3. I overuse awesome and wonderful. Sometimes I throw in fantastic for spice.

  4. Oh yeah, so right now my favs are:
    Clutch and Off The Chain or Off the Hook or Redonkulous or Bad A (and you actually say Bad AYE)or Sweet (also over used but I like it)and those are my favs. Then there is Phat. It's ok but not clutch like the others. Oh yeah! Another of my totally favorites is The Heat! Like that outfit is the heat!

    That should keep you going for a few days. If I think of more i'll come back!

  6. I like epic too, but probably best used sparingly.

    Maybe a combination of ones?

    Amazingly magnificent

    Overwhelmingly hairy....um, maybe not *that* one....

  11. I agree that awesome is overused in my vocab too. When really, it should be reserved for only the VERY BEST.

    So, I substitute "awesomesauce" like that is soooo different, ha!

    Loving BOSS.
