With it being a Friday I expect a few of you to be gambrinous, possibly leading to abderian fits, borborygmus and emunction, but please do refrain from sabrage or a wanweird could await you.

Happy Weekends :wink

1. Giddy girl
2. Trumpery knickknack.

This sounds quite interesting too The Etymologicon: A Circular Stroll through the Hidden Connections of the English Language by Mark Forsyth (http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/ref=pe_13021_31138201_pe_pack6/1848313071)
