crapulous - Word of the Week #82

crapulous - [KRAP-yuh-lus] - adjective:

1. Given to or characterized by gross excess in drinking or eating.
2. Suffering from or due to such excess.

After the last week of treats, food, and sitting around with family, I had no choice but to haul my crapulous self to the gym this morning. Ugh...

I love it. Crapulous. Sounds like it isn't a word but it is. =]

Hahaha! Great word. I actually used it in my last manuscript. And here I thought I was being all original. But glad to see great minds think alike ;)

By the way, I followed you over from Rhonda Cowsert's blog! I look forward to your blog posts!
