It is unusual to find a dictionary with the holding power to keep you reading and laughing for hours, but that's what this will do. I found the "nomancies" enough of a motivation to keep reading, and once took on the personal challenge of finding an excuse to use cephalonomancy in a sentence. Not surprisingly it was in an economics discussion that I found a window of opportunity. Highly recommended for the word freak in you.
