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
out of twelve, and his favourite part was that of which he
understood the least - the inimitable, mouth-filling rodomontade
of the ghost in 'Hamlet'."

--Robert Louis Stevenson, "Across The Plains"
