I m lovin it

"Loving" is used that way here in Australia too - meaning enjoying.
 
I ve also heard "I m really hating this." - from a student struggling with maths.

I see it as a "the language is changing" thing.  When I was young we never used "loving", that came later and sounded "wrong" at first; but, thanks to various advertising campaigns (and songs), it has caught-on with the younger generation and has become common use.  It has begun to no longer sound "wrong".  So, similar to the word "whom", I see its use changing--which is what languages do.

I think people do use it. How s Jack getting on with his work experience? He s really loving it. The meaning has changed in this context, as others point out - it just means enjoy .
