    The Word of the Day

    Someone signed me up for a word of the day email about a decade ago. I haven't brought myself to unsubscribe and usually just delete it as most of the words are so obtuse that they'd never be able to work their way into my normal conversation.

    That changed today. This week's theme is 'words that appear rude but aren't'.

    Cue Elmo: The word of the day is....

    ulous

    (KRAP-yuh-luhs)

    MEANING:
    adjective: Sick from excessive drinking or eating.

    ETYMOLOGY:
    From Latin crapula (drunkenness), from Greek kraipale (hangover, drunkenness). Earliest documented use: 1540. Also crapulent.

    USAGE:
    “He was feeling crapulous after drinking and wasn’t thinking of anything much when he went early to the beach.”
    Jim Williams; The Argentinian Virgin; Quartet Books; 2009.

    See more usage examples of crapulous in Vocabulary.com’s dictionary.


    I have been feeling quite crapulous since I drank my body weight in Woodford over the holidays. And who knew crapula was a legit Latin word?


    ETA: What's with the poop emoji? This is serious language learnin here.

    One of my friends signed me up for cheese of the month. For Jan it is Consider Bardwell Farm Barden Blue.

    The newest cheese in Consider Bardwell's line-up, Barden Blue's buttery flavor and bright, golden hue can be traced to the best raw, local cow's milk delivered each morning straight to the cheesemaking room. The carefully controlled bluing, which lends the cheese its ever-so-slight peppery edge, comes about as a result of the cheesemaker's attention to quality and detail.

    I would get completely crapulous eating that. I love me some blue cheese.

    I got signed up for Jelly of the Month by my employer rather than the usual Christmas bonus.

    For a little heat during the coldest time of year, this month's jelly is http://www.blueridgejams.com/Jalapen...Preserves.html

    Clark, that's the gift that keeps on giving the whole year.


    I wouldn't mind a cheese of the month club, though. The local Wegmans has an awesome cheese selection, and I've really started to focus on seasonal releases - there's something cool about seasonal stuff that feels somehow more connected to things. Part of the reason I think it's weird to have strawberries in the wintertime, etc.

    That Barden Blue is great, had some on a cheese slate at Foam last month.

    NEK, better the Jelly Club than a donation to the Human Fund.


    The weather today is crapulous.

    How does it stack up against the Jasper Hill Bailey Hazen Blue? I know that is some very tasty cheese.

    That's raw. Ask the employer for KY Jelly instead. For the next time he wants to give it to you dry.

    Boucher Bleu from up in Highgate is the best.

    Try the Danby aged goat cheese from Consider Bardwell with a glass of red wine in front of the wood stove on a winter evening. Mixed company suggested.

    That's funny. There used to be a great bar in Boise called the Interlude. They had a dictionary in the middle of the bar, whenever I'd go in, I'd open a random page in the dictionary and use that as an icebreaker in a new conversation.

    Admittedly, no. But it came from a place of utter intolerance of peoples' benightedness.

    That's cool, I once stumbled across a site for a club or society of neologist. Too bad I can't remember it.

    Very cool. Not so much the word, but that your bro wrote for the Simpsons.
