    excited at/by/about

    Hi there,

    is it ok if I say "are you getting excited about/at/by your holiday"? If not, could you please tell me why.
    is it ok if I say "I'm bored of/with doing the samething every day"? If not, could you please tell me why.
    Thanks a million!

    Silvia

    Re: excited at/by/about

    I would be getting excited about my holiday. I wouldn't use 'at', and I would generally us 'by' with a past event.
    I would use bored of/with.
