Thursday words: crapulent and prevernal

Crapulent
(literary) relating to the drinking of alcohol or drunkenness.
~Oxford Reference Online

I just think this word is funny in a sort of "I'm an 8 year old boy" way. No crapulence in these parts lately, for good or for ill.

A slightly more topical, relevent word, since I'm feeling wordy:

Prevernal
In the early spring.
~Oxford Reference Online

Maybe that's wishful thinking, since March in Canada generally brings more snow before it brings spring, but it has been very bright and shiny out there today!
