I like "scintillating", because I like using "scintle" as a verb.  That's not the one I'm looking for, though.

"Scintle" wouldn't be the natural verb root, not that I'm begrudging you (I kinda like it).  The Latin scintilla, 'spark', which is of the same original as 'shine' if you go back far enough, got verbalized (scintillitare, 'to shine' or 'to spark / sparkle').  The past participle in Latin often engendered an English verb (scintillitatus), eg, 'scintillate'.

BUT I like your efficient chopping, there.  Latin's nice, but all the word endings can get to be a bit much.  I think other -ate verbs could benefit from a similar occasional chopping.  I think I might like to ask someone, 'Are you really going to corrob that story?'  It has a certain Nadsat feel to it, although it might aggrav (aggra?) some people.  They can always sit and rot . . . .

Of course, Seinfeld beat me to it with the whole 'Master of Your Domain' thing.

:hmm:

A gazebo?  I use my sword to detect good on it.
Cause you're so beautiful
Like a tree
Or a high-class prostitute
You're so beautiful
Mmm, you could be a part-time model
But you'd probably have to keep your normal job

You can't bee too hard on Eric, though.  It did eventually eat him.
