over

(redirected from go over someone)

much ink has been spilled

People have written a vast amount (about a certain topic). Typically followed by "on/over/about (something)." Following the scandal, much ink has been spilled about the country's history in dealing with corporate crime. Although much ink has been spilled on the topic, there has sadly been little action at a legislative level.

I'm over it—she can get someone else to make five dozen cupcakes to her exacting standards. It's only been two days, and I'm seriously over this construction project.
