Okay, unrelated to anything I'm willing to share...

I've often said the only reason to have an English degree (like mine) is it gives you the right to make up words.

The word I have accidentally and brilliantly made up this evening is "BRAFTY". Adjective. A brash, loud, hedonistic quality that engenders followers. Kind of an Irish-esque tense-changed version of "braggadocio".

Usage: "He's been described as a brafty bastard." Brafty is the guy or gal who reigns in tale-telling at the local pub. Brafty is the guy/gal-done-wrong at the local shop who incites a mob. Brafty is any person who has discovered they are too charismatic for their own good, and are milking it for as long as they can get away with it.

Heck, brafty is my husband, from which I have to smack him down on occasion. "We are NOT getting a lynch mob to get you a toasted ham sub! Brafty bastard! *swat*"

Go, my friends, my minions, my loves! Go and proliferate my word forth! It is worthy! XD
