Word of the week #5

Tomorrow is the Doctor Who mid-season finale, which everyone should be getting excited for. So many big questions remain to be answered - who kidnapped Amy and why? Who is her baby's father? Will we finally learn River Song's true identity? Where did the fez go? (Fezzes are cool).

I can't wait, so I've chosen a word this week which always makes people think of Who because of how much it sounds like the name of his home planet. It also has a meaning which perfectly describes the inside of the TARDIS. It's also a fairly easy word to casually throw into conversation, although you should be prepared to explain yourself afterwards since it sounds so wonderfully odd. Your word of the week is...

Noun: A confused jumble; a hodge-podge; a medley. Term originates from a medieval meat stew. Pronounced gal-uh-maw-free.

Example: With Amy kidnapped, River refusing to help, the Cybermen returning and River back in his Roman outfit, the Doctor is going to be facing a gallimaufry of problems which will test his every skill if he wants to save the day.
