Cool words

I just had occasion to use the word "crepuscular" on a comment to haikujaguar's post. I feel empowered! *snort*

Seriously, though, crepuscular is such a cool word. It doesn't matter what it means (though knowing what it means adds even more pleasure to it). Some words are just cool words.

Deliquescent is another cool word. H.P. Lovecraft certainly would approve of it.

Less fancy, but equally cool, is housel. And fid.

Are there any words that just turn you on (regardless of meaning)?
