I haven’t recently written a post on fancy fustian words. This borders on negligence, for I am forever collecting grandiloquent and archaic words guaranteed to bore people to death at parties (of which I am not invited) or annoy phone solicitors. The Board of Directors Here at Spo-Reflections absolutely hates these entries, as they draw no traffic. Well screw’em. I love words!  Pleonasm is my middle name.

Here are a few of my recent finds, apropos for the holidays, winter months, and the pending political regime. Try using some in an email today.

Blivit – something for which one cannot find a word; something difficult to name.

Chicanery – the use of trickery to achieve a political, financial, or legal purpose.

Cumbly – benumbed with cold

Gambrinous – intoxicated by beer.

Gelid – f*cking cold, geezus could it get any worse.

Mardy – a sulky slightly aggressive moody teenager, usually female.

Mulligrubs – ill temper; colic; grumpiness.

Naufragous – something relating to or causing a shipwreck; something that creates a disaster.

Nescience – lack of knowledge or awareness.

Nudnik – a persistently dull, boring pest.

Potation – a drink or draft, especially of an alcoholic beverage.

Quisquillious – having the nature of rubbish (a splendid word indeed!)

Skiver – someone who skips or weasels out of a responsibility.
