I'm not saying it has to offend you (like calling stupid stuff "gay") - just something you don't use, because it isn't you.
For me, here in northern California, it's "hella." (Both as "very" and as "a lot of": "That test was hella hard." "He got hella bruises from snowboarding.") I thought it was extremely bizarre when I first heard it. I'm getting used to it now, but I still don't use it myself. I would feel like a poser if I did; like one of those sad teachers trying to sound cool. Even though I'm not exactly ancient.
Anyway. What is it in your area?
