Uncool

I’ve been meaning to post this for a while but never got around to it. After mentioning my “quest” to Nika and Steph last night at Yulblog they thought it would be a fun discussion so here goes.

A few years ago (7 or 8?) the term cool was out of favor, no one I know used it, it was the opposite of it’s meaning, completely uncool. 3-4 years back it made a return in the general population and in my “circle”, we started using it kind of ironically and then less and less ironically. Everytime I use I kind of regret it. And every time I post something that is cool I wonder what other word I can use to express it.

So now, aside from my being a bit anal by thinking about terms I use, what do you think would be a good word to use instead of cool?
