There are things that creep in that I like, and others that I loathe. The most recent that I like lots is "hot mess."  I first ran across it as a description of a character named Giselle Cox in The Proviso, a book by Moriah Jovan.  It was so appropriate.  She'd had a run-in with a man that shook her extremely, and it left her in a condition that hot mess captured perfectly.

Now the recent word that I despise is ganked.  The alternate dictionary lists it as meaning stolen, but my innocent friends on Facebook use it in the meaning of copied.  Possibly it was without permission, but the whole of Facebook is a permission-free zone of borrowing.  Using ganked is precious, you little thieves, you.
