I came across this word serendipitously, which pretty much sums up the story of my life. I present it here for your amusement. Let me know if you ever find a use for it.

hmmm... this was the word-of-the-day at http://word.parlez.com a few days back. vain boasting indeed.

"For this lover of great literature understood not one sentence

understood the least - the inimitable, mouth-filling rodomontade
of the ghost in 'Hamlet'."

--Robert Louis Stevenson, "Across The Plains"
