    ... over the spelling of dreekh, driech, dreek.

    These are all regional variations meaning the same thing i.e.
    miserable, depressing, soul destroying, energy sapping, dull, grey, wet, bleak, bland, boring, dire, awful.

    I propose a new word to be used, to avoid arguments about the spelling.

    The word is- 'beaker'.

    I think this fits the above descriptive words perfectly.






    :D

    Yeah, but they can't also be used to describe weather.

    Sorry, Caspar. Can't be boring and dire. Game of Thrones was dire but never boring. :rolleyes:

    Maybe not. However, I drove to work today instead of riding as the weather was forecast to be Beaker. They got it right too, it’s pissing down.
