I don't know if I've said it lately, but I get SO STOKED when I play with words. I just... I want to dress them up and put them in the Malibu Barbie playset and make them have hot plastic tongue-sex until they pop out a whole passel of cute cuddly slang-babies.
Anyway, here for the fun of it are ten of my favorite Latin words. Let's bring these back, you guys, seriously.
crapularius - for getting rid of a hangover
demurmuro - to grumble through (e.g., a performance)
edento - to knock the teeth out of
effutuere - to wear out through excessive sex
frustulentus - full of crumbs
intervomere - to throw up amongst
pergraecor - to go completely Greek, to have a ball
rasito - to shave regularly
subinvito - to invite unenthusiastically
vapularis - in for a flogging
Substantive post later this week. It's the last sprint to the manuscript-submitting finish line, and I am tearing up track.
lucubro (v tr) - to compose at night; (v intr) to burn the midnight oil.
