nidifice - an ingenious structure that bedbugs form using their own bodies in order to overcome various obstructions placed under and around the legs of beds.

"Nidifice" is a fancy and archaic word for a nest.

Christmas in the Islands
Thanks to David Weinstock,
who told me about a Christmas tree made of driftwood

Its funny how late in December
Memories catch him off guard
Its years since he's had any presents
And nobody sends him a card

There's a Christmas tree made out of driftwood
That each year he has to repair
With colorful fruit taped to branches
Tinseled with coconut hair

He wipes at his eye -- some lotion
Or maybe the blinding bright beach
He listens to steel drums and ocean
Ringing each to each

And every year up until midnight
Knowing no Santa will come
He sits in the breeze and the moonlight
Drinking a bottle of rum.
Trish is apparently feeling poignant this close to the end of the year as am I and therefore wins a jar of myrrh and First Place for:

Take it away Trisherina!

Well, I've been accused of delayed judging in the past, but I've never had to accuse anyone of delayed new-round-starting.

Brynn? HFox? you guys want to get a new round started until trish and bales make their triumphant return?

By the authority invested in me by the (currently indisposed) state of trisherina, I now pronounce the word of the round to be:

Umquhile

Umquhile Out of the light, keeping very quiet.

Sort of like umquhile they persisted, but Jerry couldn't hear the termites feasting on his foundation.

umquhile n. The difference between how long one expects a task to take and how long it actually takes.

Projects that Sven actually wanted to work on generally had a negative umquhile while tasks he wanted to procrastinate ended up with a very large positive umquhile

Umquhile: A Yup'ik ceremonial dance intended to bring a blizzard down upon one's enemies. Used against the Russians in 1790, 1807, and again in 1823.

umquhile :

Suspicion directed towards a returning member of a group, when that member and another have recently gone missing.

Until Trish's return, Bales had some measure of umquhile directed towards him.
