Whatsit.

As in; "You know, it's a whoosy whatsit."
A flap of the wings yesterday means big changes tomorrow.
Let's work together to keep the present inevitable.

My screen name: Νεφελοκοκκυγία

Means 'Cloudcuckooland' in Greek, as found in Aristophanes' The Birds (Ὄρνῑθες).

I like the way it captures perfectly the meaning of the word, sounds all floaty-like and such.

I know they are fake words, but I like the Harry Potter words

Muggle

Quidditch
-Stop using Jesus as an excuse for being a narrow minded bigot.
-Music was her life, the lyrics were her story.
-Be careful what you say, it may remind me of a song that needs to be sung.
-GOT JESUS? I thought you had him....shit!
-Why do people with closed minds always open their mouths?
-My pit bull is my co-pilot.
-To err is human; to ARRGGHHH is pirate!
-Why do we kill people who kill people to show people that killing people is wrong?
-Well behaved women rarely make history.
-Laughter: When a smile has an orgasm
-I'm not so good at the advice; can I interest you in a sarcastic comment?
