Words of the week

(1) Dear Google, Just because I cannot spell "Troll-løype" does not mean I meant to search for "trollop". Couldn't you at least have suggested "Trollope"? Which, ironically, is what you do if I spell "Troll-løype" correctly.

(2) Embellished. Embellished is my anti-word of the week. I see the word "embellished" in connection with clothing I want to call down a plague off moths upon the perpetrator.

(3) "Papabile", lit. "Popeable".

This post is brought to you by wondering whether I might go skiing after all. Probably not, but the thought has popped up.
