Strange! Because it is a French word, frisson is dead easy for me(it was also WotD on The Free Dictionary).

Ah the stupidity of youth.... HIV or other - all for the price of a frisson.

That's one of my favourite words. therefore I try not to use it too often - in the same category as egregious.

To make pancakes while diving, of course! It's hard work and you can work up quite an appetite, you know...

Sure, but it can't be worse than having kippers for breakfast...
