  2. Well, I'm sort of surprised that no one (that I know of) has used flummery to describe my sometimes meaningless chatter. ; )

    1. Thanks, Carol. I actually found another meaning for it: soft jelly, or porridge. I guess that goes to show I need to cross reference my sources! It is a Welsh word - it seems like the U.K. is famous for fun words.
