Heh. Huh.

I can't recall what I was going to say about the word that ginned itself up in my brain-flotsam while I was half sleeping.

Suffice it to say, it was "geriatricality" and I liked it and I still do.

This should perhaps become a post about words people I've loved have made up, which I've made a part of my lexicon - but for now, just a short list:

porculent - meaning pretty obvious, I'd hope (from BEx)
perplexion - again clear, I think (from a less beloved ex)
cromulent - a perfectl serviceable, good word (from the writers of The Simpsons)

Will add as I recall others - or not, as the mood may or may not strike me.
