Hey guess what?

The word is meticulous, not meticulate. As in “He is usually very meticulous,” not “He is usually very meticulate.” You can’t just interchange suffixes anytime you want. It makes you appear inarticulous and I find it humorate. See what I did there? I mixed up the suffixes and made a blunder.

If you were a non-native speaker it would be acceptable and even cute. But you’re not, so it isn’t. And you’re not George Bush either.
