Had a sleepover at the bartendress' house.

When it all started, I was larged. When it all was over, I was somehow ensmalled. And enshrivelled.

But, great fun was had on the way to The Ensamllening.

Great fun.

I just saw Bespoke used in some video about something. I think it may become one of those annoying words that has a huge comeback.

So, 'bespoked' means like a bicycle/motorcycle wheel?

Bespoke can just go back under the rock it came out of. I first heard it in the last year or two, and you are right that it is increasing in frequency. Somebody ought to do one of those Google trend word searches to back me up.

Now, change the date range to last 12 months - or less - and check in which subregion it's most popular.

"Bespoke" is something made by hipsters. You buy it at a pretentious shop, and they charge way too much for it. It's one level worse than artisanal.

"Bespoken" is the wrong word in this context. It's basically a typo.

It's a word that comes and goes with the economy. Custom, personalized fashion is something rich people pay for, and there is a lot less of a demand for it in a recession.

Irregardless, its use will remain divisive.

"Bespoken" is perfectly cromulent in this context.
