Good to be almost all together

Sitting n the lounge with Tony, Adrian and Maria.   All of us are in our own electronic devices - So a whole lot of parallel play.  
In the picture Adrian is extolling the benefits of his "Smash Daniells" cocktail
Adrian sent me a list of English words that should never have been dropped

Snoutfair  - a person with a pretty countenance (face) "When Tony looks at me he sees a snoutfair"
Wonder-wench - a sweetheart "Maria is Tim's wonder wench"
Lunting - walking while smoking a pipe." Your Pop looked like Sherlock Holmes as he went luntling with Gran"
Groak - to watch someone eating while hoping to be asked to join them.  "Lily is the best groaner we know"
Jirble - to pour out a drink with a shaky hand - like "she jirbles the milk to make the pattern on the coffee"
Curglaff - the shock felt when first entering the cold water - "The curglaff hit her way too hard and almost stopped Maria having her swim"
Spermologer - a collector of trivia  and current news "Adrian, the eternal spermologer read from the Civilian to keep his family amused"
Resistentialism - the seemingly spiteful behaviour shown by inanimate objects " Sandra was burned agian by the the toaster in its typical show off resistentialism"
