yukiness


Explanation:
Sorry about that :-)

I just found out something else:

"flu-like symptoms with a general feeling of malaise, otherwise known as "yukiness".

(see http://www.pwr-nutrients.com/addinfo.htm)

Here are a few excerpts illustrating the meaning:

1. "Somehow learning that most inside-out animals, humans included, would be slimy because of the mucus coating their insides doesn't spoil the yukiness of hagfish (also known as slime hags and slime eels "because of their amazing oozing bodies") or slime molds, which you learn how to find and keep as a pet. Advice: "Don't forget to name it."

2. "Back home I left a treacherous day of fog, freezing rain, and overall climatic yukiness."

3. "Lizards, snakes, and spiders have something in common. No. It's not their yukiness. They leave old skins behind."

4. "I expect the kinda weird and bizarre feeling to evolve into more general overall yukiness as seems to be the pattern. So far, almost zero nausea so that's a good thing!"
