If we didn't have "pretty" we wouldn't have "purt near."  But at least you don't find it awesomely galling.

mostly the concept is understood in the shadow of lag time; so really it's more of a graduated if gravitated reaction than a shift. or something. Don't make a face at me, I used NyQuil last night, and the dreams...oh the dreams.{#Wink}

Moments - when used in a context like "It will be just a few moments". I hate that when they use "moment" as an intangible measure of time. What difference does it make if they say "just a moment" or "just a few moments" as they are both intangibles. Why say it at all as its meaningless.

 
i expect a moment to be memorable.
 
Except the senior moments (although senior moment should be put on the substitute bench)

AMAZING
As in, "My two amazing daughters who wear these amazing diapers" — If you cant even figure out what a toilet is for, how amazing can you be? And if youre amazed by a diaper, well, that says something about your amazement threshhold that you probably should not go around broadcasting. What does this amazing diaper do? Fly? Do card tricks? Go on Jeopardy?  The word is meaningless.
