Really? It seems that it could potentially fit very well given the definition here.
Hmm...i t kinda fits. Sort of. I'd worry that I'd be approrpiating it though, because I was drawn to it on account of liking the word. I dunno. Will play around with it and see if it sticks. Also splendid work with the hair flower . Glad folks responded so well!
Re: radiolab interview, that's really neat! It looks like it's about an hour long though, so will probably have to wait until the weekend before I can listen to it, but am quite interested to hear how it went.

But, while it's important in language to get an idea across, being yourself doesn't require abstraction. You are what you feel. Try to be true to that, rather than trying to find out what that is.
Yeah, I hear you. I guess I'm not too hung up on the label as such. More as a tool to use to find other folks who've had similar experiences, in the hope that it might give me more of an idea of what's going on (accounting for individual variation, naturally).
