Juglandin - 960 - 1008, a courtier and poet in the court of Brian Boru, notable for his decadent wit in an age of fierce warfare against the Vikings. The only poem of his that has come down to us was incised on stone urn that may have been intended for his cremated remains. Translated from the Gaelic, with some contemporary liberties taken with such notions as "quidhe" (diapers) and "puthhin" (a gelatin sweetened with honey) it runs:

When you are old and bald, and what's not bald is gray,
And fine firm muscle falls in rolls of fat
Beneath your yellowed, liver-spotted skin;
When loud, wet, wracking coughs begin your day,
And wheezing weakness often knocks you flat
While constant tremors waggle every chin;
When rheumy eyes and short-term memories fail
To conjure names of relatives or friends,
And you no longer smell the smell of stale
Old urine leaking out of your Depends;
When all your teeth are gone and Jello ends
Up drooling from your lips in a bubbling trail;
When only hopes for death soothe your distress
My passion for you won't be one whit less.

Juglandin -- n., fem., Ger. (YOOG-lahnd-een); Literally, a female native of Jugland, the territory south of East Frisia in one of the parts of the world that has been Dutch, German, Flemish and Frankish depending on how the last war came out. Colloquially, a Juglandin is one step down from an Ost-Friesin, whom a young man can admit to dating (though not bring home), and one step up from a Zigeunerin (gypsy woman) whom young Germans won't even admit to dating even if it's the only trim they've gotten in months.

Saying "I've got a Juglandin" these days means "I'm getting it kind of steady from someone I don't particularly want you to meet." Mostly this is due to looks or social status, since all the actual Juglandinnen and Juglander were wiped out long ago.

Juglandid - n. A hormone that causes people to appear differently than they really are. Found in high levels in the bodies of at least one of two people during their first 2-3 dates.

Juglandin, see: Juglandid The opposite of pellucid, the object of a sentence can be said to be juglandid when it is sufficiently abstruse to provoke a yearning for anaesthesia.

Mme. Boulanger reported that the Ladies' Tea went on so late owing to a speaker who waxed juglandid for hours on the minutiae of designer glassware.
