swivet

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.

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


Origin:
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.
