Last week, I offered to take boring, beat-up old words and make them ostentatious. I have one more request to take care of. If anyone has any requests for future episodes, send them via Twitter, Facebook, e-mail or in the comments below. SBP0123 asked me to pimp the word fun, saying, "I was taught that ‘fun’ was a noun, not an adjective, but more and more people use it to describe something, e.g. ‘I had a fun time.’ It gets on my nerves big time."
While I don't have a problem with the word fun as an adjective, if you're looking for a pimped alternative, how about blithesome? It means cheery or merry.
