Writer's Block: Words that you love and hate

What are your favorite and least favorite words? Any reasons why?

One of my favorite words has always been "serenity," even before becoming a fan of Firefly and the movie. I like the balance of four syllables, the beginning "s" sound and ending in "ee" sound. Just something very comforting about it. I also love the word "revelation" - again, the balanced syllables, the tongue-feel of it, and it's the first word in my chinese symbol tattoo, "Revelation" over "Harmony."

My least favorite word is another "s" word - snot. Can't stand the actual substance, and the word is so appropriately displeasing that I just can't stand it. I'll take "mucus," "drainage," anything other than "snot." And "hate," for more reasons than I would imagine are necessary to list here.
