NotWord Enthused Now Enthusiastically Embraced

Maybe I went to school in the 19th rather than the 20th century, but I was always taught that enthused was a bastardization of the noun enthusiasm, in other words what I would call a[tag]NotWord[/tag].

However, dictionaries at least partially disagree, saying it is indeed an American bastardization of English but one that is now commonly accepted in speech and in most writing except the most formal.

That’s me, I guess–most formal!  LOL

PS  Anyway, it’s great to be back up online.  I had about two days there when the server went down and even after things were restored, my site didn’t work.  I’ve been hacking away ever since to get functionality back, but here I am at last!  It’s good to be back.
