    Word of the Day for Sunday November 27, 2005

    quidnunc \KWID-nuhngk\, noun:
    One who is curious to know everything that passes; one who
    knows or pretends to know all that is going on; a gossip; a
    busybody.

    What a treasure-trove to these venerable quidnuncs, could
    they have guessed the secret which Hepzibah and Clifford
    were carrying along with them!
    --Nathaniel Hawthorne, [1]The House of the Seven Gables

    Some wretched intrigue which had puzzled two generations of
    quidnuncs.
    --L. Stephen, Hours in Library
