Dormouse559 wrote:The other night, I had a dream that involved the evil queen from "Snow White". I referred to her as a "queenion", which I guess was supposed to mean "powerful queen". But even in the dream, I was skeptical of that, so I looked it up. Dream-Wiktionary said "queenion" is in fact a verb meaning "to stay awake until a monarch has fallen asleep or, if they have died, until their body is cold*". It also gave the Latin word for the concept as rēgīnō, and I imagined the Anglicized form, "reginate". Of course, none of those words actually exists. No idea where waiting for the monarch to fall asleep came from, but it sounds kind of neat.
* This second bit was phrased as something like "until the gut is chilled"
