a suggestion

although "run-down" is officially two words, i'd like to propose that it be made into one word - for emphasis.

like in the sentence, "i am feeling exhausted and rundown."

see. it's like shedding complete new light onto the meaning of the rundownness. totally incorrect, yet so totally perfect.

kind of how i like to write in fragments. and to use one word sentences - also for emphasis. often.

and to think, i'm a writer. (gasp.)

    see.. i think its actually hyphenated, and i don't like it as one word. however i think when using it like, "give me the run down on this movie" you should be able to make it one word.
    in other news, i recently created a word. Ozing. it means moving an item or items from kansas to new york. any time you move something from kansas to new york, intending it to stay in new york, you have Ozed. soon i am going to be Ozing my amp and futon.

    I totally agree, "rundown" should be one word. Screw spellcheck. Heck there was even a movie called "Rundown", not "Run-Down".

    Even Hollywood is behind you, how can you be wrong?
