      Excessorise, is based on the word excess .Of course . But it's a lovely play on words. Because it remainds you of accessories .
      Accessorise is actually an older usage from the 1930s in the United States. It means to furnish with accessories.
      Excessorise is an unusual ,because there is no word in English,  Excessory as there is accessory.
      So when I heard the verb for the first time I didn't really know what is meant .
      "Let's excessorise with some Whiskey". Somebody said. It was the first time I heard it years ago.
      And I thought Excessorise , I thought it was accessorise, and then I worked it out, that it couldn't be . And I realized that  it was based on this word "Excess".
      "Let us drink to excess".It meant in that particular case.
      And that's how the word is used, to eat ,or to drink ,or to take drugs , or whatever it might be.
      For personal indulgence in excessive amounts-that's the point-if you are excessorsing, you are doing some thing excessively.
      I've heard it applied to jewellery  as well. He or she , is really  excessorised. In other words, there is too much jewellery being used on the person.
      I've heard somebody talking about his car, or somebody else's car,  usually you talk about somebody else's things in this way, not your own. Somebody who had excessorised his car, in other words, it's got all kind of little
gimmicks and gardgets all over it.
      And the other day ,for the first time .I couldn't belive this. I heard somebody in a restaurant putting all sorts of things on his beef burger,  all kinds of extras, onions and sauce ,and lots of other thing. And some body said "Hey,  you are excessorising"talking about beef burger.
