      the worthless word for the day is: temulence

      [fr. L. tēmulentus, intoxicated]
      intoxication, drunkenness

      "But the postcard was not invented in England until 1870,
      so Miss Barrett had no way of curbing her temulence to a
      dram of postcard-size."
      - Osbert Burdett, The Brownings (1933)
