mom just asked me for synonyms for happy. she was writing in a card. i asked for the sentence: "happy birthday and have a blankity-blank year!" so, i started rattling them off.
"fantastic, fabulous, super..."
"no... can you tone it down a little?"
"um... joyous?"
seriously, though. can you "tone down" happy? you can certainly ramp it up: instead of "happy", you can be "over-joyed" or "ecstatic". i suppose instead of "happy" you can be "pleased", but i don't think that "pleased" is any more "toned down." the connotation is a little bit different, of course, but it's no less potent.
oh, words.
