One of my fellow expats living in Central Asia is known throughout our community for her over the top enthusiasm. Her expression of delight tends to manifests itself in an extra syllabification to punch up her sentence. Something is never just Amazing it is A-maz-i-ing, or Fan-ta-sti-ic . The more syllables she can stretch a word into the better it reflects her enjoyment. She uses hyperbolic super adjectives.

Last weekend I made a trip to Vancouver BC and down into Bellingham Washington. I have to admit the cool vibe and the gorgeous sights made me want to infuse a little more life into my speech just to capture the full wonder of it.

Look at these pictures they are GOR-GE-OUS
