2. it has come to be used metaphorically, to refer to any delusional obsession that results in wasting

Cordelia was unable to see how her compulsive collecting of 18th century fire polished salt cellars had become her undoing, a domesticated crystalline sedilia, every bit as fatal as its botanical counterpart.

sedilia (n). A crime so henious that people would rather let it go unpunished than have to think about it.

Unfortunately everyone got away with anything in those days, because all it took was a bit of sedilia and people would be willing to pardon all your other offences just to be able to forget about your existence.

sedilia - the feeling of helpless unease experienced when the music provided by your coffeeshop doesn't quite fit your mood and you've left your personal music device in your other pants

Sedilia (Plural of Latin sedile, a seat.) The name given to seats on the south side of the sanctuary, used by the officiating clergy during the liturgy. The earliest examples are found in the catacombs, where a single stone seat at the south end of the altar was used by the celebrant. Similar single seats are found in Spain (at Barcelona, Saragossa, Toledo, and elsewhere) and England (at Lenham and Beckley). In course of time the number of seats was increased to three (for celebrant, deacon, and sub-deacon), which is the number usually found, though sometimes there are four and even five. They became common in England by the twelfth or thirteenth century, and were frequently recessed in the thickness of the wall of the church.

Bloody hell. I forgot that if I won, I'd have to do some work. Drat! I'll get back to you....

PS "Chanel Gen X" is a rather good description of me, actually.

brightpearl 06-05-2007 07:12 PM

The next word is

jaculiferous.

Have at you.

Words to the wise: You'll curry no favor with me by opting for the obvious and juvenile reference. :rolleyes:

zenbabe 06-06-2007 04:06 AM

jaculiferous.

verb: the action of becoming particularly aroused, usually under the table at Indian restaurants. This particular condition is influenced by the favor of curry and like color blindness, has only been exhibited to the male species.

daverbee 06-06-2007 09:33 AM

jaculiferous

Displaying the physical characteristics of a javelina.

In spite of his obvious porcine resemblance, Larry's jaculiferous physique had women flocking to meet him thanks to the "pig sticker" he carried below his belly.

Hyakujo's Fox 06-06-2007 09:52 AM

Jaculiferous (adj) being in such a raging perplexment to the degree that one can expel no words from the mouth, but only breath and saliva.

When daverbee realised that his earlier 'jaculiferous' round hadn't been quite so memorable to lodge itself permanently in the collective consciousness of the board, he was almost jaculiferous himself.

brightpearl 06-06-2007 10:11 AM

^^Oh no!! :eek: All apologies; I haven't been reading this thread long.

Let's switch it, shall we? Sorry for the inconvenience to the early entrants.

macropodine?

Hyakujo's Fox 06-06-2007 10:33 AM

I don't think it's a problem. :)
