I was going to do a post about the little monkey that lives in your head (you in the generic sense) and tried to make up a word like homunculus, with less human and more simian. However, since homunculus just means "little person" and simiolus doesn't really sound much like it, I lost the urge. So, I resorted to a word of the day. I don't think this word has been brought into English, either. Well, not until we posted it here.

give it a try - the tag could be "uncontrollable urges" - :)
