2. blümerant

derives from the French word for faint blue, literally 'dying blue', and is used to indicate that one feels fuzzy, strange, or even close to fainting.... say if you paid overmuch tribute to Lady Vodka the night before and rise too fast In Berlin people are still going blümerant ("Mir wird janz blümerant....") at times, while elsewhere people have never known or forgotten about this particular colour-sensation that sounds like a flower and use other, less poetic, words to describe such a state.
