My mom just used the word klugy. Apparently it's slang for awkward.
Anyone know how to spell it? I can't find it in the dictionary.

For those of you who love words, as I do, here's a site to look at and Learn a New Word.

I have learned the word burmal:

Pertaining to or occurring in winter.

It's from Latin bruma, meaning "winter." (Interestingly, the Latin word bruma itself is thought to be adapted from the Latin term for "winter solstice" -- brevima diesor "shortest day.")
"Once again, the inclement weather and resulting cabin fever was quickly adding up to another brumal bummer for Brunhilde."
