I have to tell all my friends - if I don't forget first.

While doing a little research on internet geek terminology, I stumbled across Mirriam-Webster Online's list of Top Ten Favourite Words Not in the Dictionary. Some of them - 'chillax'? 'confuzzled'? - I've heard before and didn't care for. But I was particularly pleased to find the definition for Cognitive Displaysia - the feeling you have before you even leave the house that you are going to forget something and not remember it until you're on the highway. I knew there must be a term for that. In fact, I think I may have heard that before, but it's hard to tell. I'm having a moment of amnesia vĂș - I feel as though I've forgotten that before.

I love making up new words. Like awesome-tacular, or assbanjo, or floon (which I have just seen in Robert Asprin's "No Phule Like An Old Phule").
