A noble spirit...  
Okay, someone just came up to the ref desk trying to find a specific book she'd written the call number for. She couldn't find it, and worried that she'd written down the wrong thing. I swear, I almost answered, "No, that's a perfectly cromulent number."

I had to stutter a bit to find a word to replace cromulent. But really, cromulent fits so perfectly there. Maybe I'll start saying it anyway.
I feel: amusedamused

Okay, I had to turn to dictionary.com with that one. I like it! *repeats it to self to memorize*

Hope you're feeling better!

"Cromulent" only applies to things that technically AREN'T right, but you can use perfectly well, anyway.

Hah! I see another commenter had to trot over to dictionary.com too.

Thank you for making my brain get just a bit bigger!

Aren't the Cromulents the descendants of Vulcans?
