Let's all go get positively alabandical

Alabandical? Adj., "barbarous; stupefied from drink", actually. One of the many lost words no longer gracing the pages of our modern dictionaries, compiled and worshipped at the International House of Logorrhea (for simply obscure and unusual words - yes, it sounds like a bowel affliction) and the Compendium of Lost Words (from whence came 'alabandical'). Take a look, wordy-booky fans.
