eccedentesiast...

One who fakes a smile or represses his pain by stifling a smile. Or you could say a person who hides his feeling behind a smile.


Word Origin: It is a term that is normally used to define people who go in front of the camera and have to fake a smile for the sake of the audience. The term is suspected to have first been coined by Florence King, an American Novelist and writer for the National Review. She refereed to this term in her column ‘The Misanthrope’s Corner’ when talking about politician’s and TV hosts. This is a great literary term to use if you’re trying to describe a character who tends to be reluctant when it comes to displaying genuine emotion.

tomfoolery............

Playful or foolish behavior.

In the Middle Ages, "Thome Fole" was a name assigned to those perceived to be of little intelligence. This eventually evolved into the spelling tomfool, which, when capitalized, also referred to a professional clown or a buffoon in a play or pageant. The name Tom seems to have been chosen for its common-man quality, much like "Joe Blow" for an ordinary person or "Johnny Reb" for a soldier in the Confederate army, but tomfoolery need not apply strictly to actions by men. In Lucy Maud Montgomery's Anne of Green Gables (1908), for example, Marilla Cuthbert complains of Anne: "She's gadding off somewhere with Diana, writing stories or practicing dialogues or some such tomfoolery, and never thinking once about the time or her duties."

Je ne sais quoi


Literally it means "I do not know" in French. But it is actually an euphemism to express a pleasant or desirable trait about something or someone that can't be described or explained. A quality that cannot be described or named easily.

Sapiosexuals


A person who finds the content's of someone else's mind to be their most attractive attribute, above and before their physical characteristics.

From the Latin root "sapien", meaning wise. The term is now becoming mainstream with dating apps giving users the ability to define their sexual orientations as "Sapiosexual."

For many, defining oneself as Sapiosexual is also a statement against the current status quo of hookup culture and superficiality, where looks are prized above all else.

Cahoots...............


Colluding or conspiring together secretly.


Cahoot is used almost exclusively in the phrase "in cahoots," which means "in an alliance or partnership." In most contexts, it describes the conspiring activity of people up to no good. "Cahoot" may derive from French cahute, meaning "cabin" or "hut," suggesting the notion of two or more people hidden away working together in secret.

maelstrom.........


A powerful often violent whirlpool sucking in objects within a given radius. A restless, disordered, or tumultuous state of affairs.

Maelstrom comes from an early Dutch proper noun that literally meant "turning stream." The original Maelstrom is a channel that has dangerous tidal currents located off the northwest coast of Norway. The word became popularized in the general vocabulary of English in reference to a powerful whirlpool, or something akin to one, in the 19th century. This was partly due to its use by writers such as Edgar Allan Poe and Jules Verne (whose writing was widely translated from French) in stories exaggerating the tempestuousness of the Norwegian current and transforming it into a whirling vortex.

Cryptocurrency

An alternate form of currency that is strictly digital.
Works through encryption over the internet making it's use anonymous.
Difficult for the receiver to prove who the sender
was and visa versa. There are 2 main types of cryptocurrency in
use at present, Bitcoin and Ether. There are other less used forms,
but they operate in the same or similar ways.

besmirch


Damage the reputation of someone or something in the opinion of others.

Since the prefix be- in besmirch means "to make or cause to be," when you besmirch something, you cause it to have a smirch. What's a smirch? A smirch is a stain, and "to smirch" is to stain or make dirty. By extension, "to smirch" came to mean "to bring discredit or disgrace on." "Smirch" and "besmirch," then, mean essentially the same thing. We have William Shakespeare to thank for the variation in form. Shakespeare's 1599 use of the term in Henry V is the first known appearance of "besmirch" in English.

aberrant

Departing from an accepted standard. Diverging from the normal type. Also a
role-playing game created by White Wolf Game Studio in 1999.


Something aberrant has wandered away from the usual path or form. The word is generally used in a negative way; aberrant behavior, for example, may be a symptom of other problems. But the discovery of an aberrant variety of a species can be exciting news to a biologist, and identifying an aberrant gene has led the way to new treatments for diseases.

commingle


To blend thoroughly into a harmonious whole This can be anything from cash, assets, household good, to personal effects! Often times when two people move in together, possessions are commingled!

If you've ever seen the scene in When Harry Met Sally, about the ugly wheel coffee table, it's perhaps best NOT to commingle items.

Ether

1. A C-O-C chemical compound used as a solvent in chemistry that
has a penchant for becoming unstable and having increased
flammability especially after it's expiration date.

2. An anesthesia agent used frequently through the 1960s in the US.
Ether's use in Surgery was discontinued as a result of it's acute
flammability. Other, non-flammable, agents were developed. The
drape erected in the OR between the anesthesiologist and the surgeon
was originally used to prevent a spark caused by surgical equipment
from coming in contact with the flammable anesthetic. The original
name for the drape was the "ether curtain."

3. Ether(s) archaic definition was a term used pertaining to the upper
atmosphere or something traveling through the air, e.g. a scent or
spirit being or traveling through the ethers. A mystical version of
floating through the air.
