Word of the Week 1: Delirious

I'm going to try out doing a "Word of the week," but it'll probably end up being every two weeks. "Word of the Fortnight" would just sound too weird, though, so I'll still be labeling it that way.

Webster's says: delirious - 1. affected with or characteristic of delirium. 2. wild with excitement, enthusiasm, etc.

delirium - 2. a state of violent excitement of emotion

I just had to add "delirium" in there, also, because I prefer "violent" to "wild." I think of "delirious" as fey and half-crazed. Hence the name of my blog. It's supposed to be as utterly random and delirious as my plain thoughts can be. Delirous is, to me, the point where "crazy" is a cool thing.
