I used to have a friend who you would call a flibbertigibbet.

Plus the word flibbertigibbet keeps popping into my head from time to time. It guess it must be a favourite word or something.

EDIT: Definition of Flibbertigibbet from Wikipedia

Flibbertigibbet is a Middle English word referring to a flighty or whimsical person, usually a young woman. In modern use, it is used as a slang term, especially in Yorkshire, for a gossipy or overly talkative person. Its origin is in a meaningless representation of chattering. [1] It does not always apply to females, however; it has also been used to describe Jiminy Cricket due to his whimsical, chatty nature.

Smerk the cutest dragon
Lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist
In Western Australi

Little Accipiter loved that girl enough
He told her jokes and crazy facts
And other forum stuff

Smerk the cutest dragon:
Traveled cross the sea,
To hunt her prey in foriegn lands,
And snuggle with Acci!

Smerk the cutest dragon
Is getting married now they say
Though little Accipiter
Has yet to name the day.
