    Default Word of the Week

    I often find neologisms that I think should be shared and used more often - Moby (I think) introduced us to 'koutaliaphobia' (fear of spoons) and I'm still looking for an occasion on which to use it.

    My word for this week is cenosillicophobia - fear of an empty glass, which I shall shortly address as I round up my exploration of the Pinner area.

    Any others (pub and beer related, of course)?

    This was a much more common affliction in the days when pubs had to shut in the afternoons. I was leaving the Fox at Mashbury in Essex (it's long gone and isn't even on the site) when I noticed a bloke at a table in front of the pub with around five full pints of Rdileys lined up. A less technical description of this phenomenon is "(going into) stacking mode".

    I cant possibly comment on this subject as I suffer from hippopotemonstrosesquipedaliaphobia which as you well know is a fear of big words.
