Word of the day

Today's word - thank you, Carol - is cerebration. The act or product of thinking. Something you can do any time without external equipment or oppressive machines.

I guess it may also be the way some people pronounce celebration - and who doesn't celebrate by thinking a bit, anyway?

I guess the words cerebration and cerebrate aren't used much because it is easier and clearer to say think. One is Latin, the other Anglo-Saxon.
