Did you notice?
it is quite hot just now
. . . . . .

The OED word of the day for the erasure weather commentary is 'thingummy.'

I prefer the also cited and more technical word: 'whatchamacallit.' And I would like to be lying in cool water just now.

Thanks, Sadami! Hope you are enjoying your lovely 19C whilst we approach 36C (Sooo much easier to face in C than in F degrees!)

I'm often amazed that you can derive such timely poems from random definitions. Thingummy? That's a word for my fading brain.

Often out of sheer desperation, I assure you :)
Seriously, check this out:

1904 Times 11 Jan. 12/2 Mr. So-and-so has..‘entrusted’ its little carcase to Mr. Thingummy, birdstuffer.

Not a lot to play with!
