  • Eerie's kind of eesome, n'cest pas?

  • Hmm...could very well be. The etymology I found suggests it was first used in the early 19th century, and you know what jokers *those* folks were.

    Hawsome indeed.

  • I agree, and you're great at reading between the lines. ;-) Upon closer inspection, I wonder if this is meant to be a "cute" form of awesome? If we're playing that game, I much prefer hawsome or even jawsome.

  • U, are you implying that I make s*** up? ;-)

    I'm not a big fan of the word either--let's just say it's not...eesome (visually and phonetically)--but it's a great curio word.

  • I've never been a fan of double vowels without a consonant sound preceding them. Just my weirdness, I guess. I would add that this particular word is just a tad too close to threesome, and were it a more popular (or perhaps real) word, it would be a shoo-in for the No-No List.

  • Attractive; pleasing to the eye (as opposed to eeksome, not pretty at all).
