Ooh, this was dictionary.com word of the day 2 days ago and it was exactly how I felt regarding Game of Thrones season 03 premiere and the limited run of Game of Thrones exhibition in NYC!

Yes, I am wearing my direwolf hat while waiting for season 03 premiere!(ok so I exaggerate but I came pretty close to a swivet!

swivet \SWIV-it\ , noun: a state of nervous excitement, haste, or anxiety; flutter: I was in such a swivet that I could hardly speak.

Benny had warned Patsy about this; the mother, he said, was in a swivet about the plea.
— Michelle Huneven, Blame, 2010

Swivet is of unknown origin. While American English speakers started using this term in the late 1800s, it didn’t cross the pond to the UK until the 1920s.
