This is a question Starting something you couldn't finish

Finnbar says: I used to know a guy who tattooed LOVE across his left knuckles, but didn't tattoo HATE on the other knuckles because he was right-handed and realised he couldn't finish. Ever run out of skills or inspiration halfway through a job?

Spent a few months spreading the word, but I sort of gave up with it the following year.

Still, I've got six months to finish the challenge, I guess.

I've been trying to get the word "pitimmeral" into the language for a while now.
The whole point of it is that I don't know what it means, and nor can I (or anyone) until it starts getting used, based on the claim that the meaning of a word is determined by its use.

So far, I've managed to get the art critic of a local paper to use it in a review - it helps that his wife is the editor - and it's been in a couple of other publications.

But it hasn't caught on yet, and I still don't know what it means.


Sometimes, I bore even myself.

Stephen's tutor Ian Mitchell, from Grantham College, said he asked his pupils to come up with a new word and Stephen had "run with it".
