ozarque figure

Recommended link; sf and fantasy and vocabulary, oh my...

Recommended: Henry's Crooked Timber post titled "Tentacle-porn," at http://crookedtimber.org/2008/02/06/tentacle-porn . If only for this one wonderful sentence: "The mind squirbles." Which sent me off to google for "squirbles," where I found page after page of "squirbles" as noun, but not as verb (except, of course, for the link to the post in question). I think it makes a spectacularly good verb, myself, especially after the mind has been primed by the thought of tentacles.
