Weird yet oddly wonderful words

Do you ever find definitions of words that you’ve never knew existed but weirdly enough they describe you exactly? Well I do a lot, and I thought I’d share a few of them with you…

Tsundoku 

(n.) the act of buying a book and leaving it read, often piled together with other unread books 

Flaneur 

(n.) a person of leisure, deliberately aimless, simply wandering the streets and soaking in the city

Clinomania 

(n.) excessive desire to stay in bed

Alexithymia

(n.) an inability to describe emotions in a verbal manner 

Onism 

(n.) the frustration of being stuck in just one body, that inhabits only one place at a time  

Do you have any weird yet oddly wonderful words you’d like to share with me?
