>So I’m talkin to pal DT earlier today (and, no, there’s no truth to the rumor that he’s actually a personification of Delirium Tremens)

Sadly, this may be the nicest thing you have ever said about me. But, being the optimist that I am, I shall take it as a very good thing indeed that people don't equate me with having bugs crawling all over them.

And any previous claims that I have, in fact, been the personification of such have been, at best, half-truths. Or, as some might say, not totally true, but at least accurish.


Accurish is a great word, and it is your word. Who cares if it sort of sounds not unlike a Norwegian breakfast cereal . . . uh, bracelet?

I love to make up new words. I used to not, but while watching a debate not too many months back I heard local politico Harold Ford Jr. describe the situation in Iraq as "bogdownedness." From then on I've decided to make up words as the situation arises, and I may quite like using yours.

And finally, I too love the Wikipedia. I find it often helpful and quantifiably accurish at least a certain percentage of the time.


LOve it! Ranks right up there with rainbrella and stinkeriffic in my "These Should Be Words" dictionary.


The wikipedia says that i wrote an autobiographical novel called the Bell Jar. Accurrish indeed.
