Etsom·ni·a (/etˈsämnēə/), noun, 1. a sleep disorder caused by obsessive Etsy browsing. 2. The surprising arrival of weird handmade merchandise ordered when one is only half conscious. (True story.) 3. An excuse for me to be an obnoxious, snarky New Yorker once per week.
The term avant garde is one of those that gets regularly, hilariously mis-applied. Wildly-divergent items from sunglasses to art(?!?) to hats to overdressed taxidermied swans are labeled avant garde rather than what they are – just weird.
