I learnt (or is it learned) …

I learnt (or is it learned) a new word today, or an expression, or something, because really its two words… I stumbled upon it by accident
looking for an alternative to potpourri…
… I’ve the word potpourri a few times before “
– used ‘mixed bag’ as well…
So I went searching my Wordweb lexicon
And came across
a varied mixture, an assortment of things
now Mélange I have heard of
and I think I may have used it once
but it always seemed such an indulgent word
for such a prosaic definition…
But Mélange led me to….
Say it… doesn’t it just vibrate deliciously!
Doesn’t it roll around your tongue like an ancient chant!
Ok… perhaps I’m getting a little bit carried away… but
I learnt (or is it learned) a new word today
or an expression, or something
omnium-gatherum – a miscellaneous collection (as of things or persons)
And it tickled my muse.
