I’m not sure if I came up with this word, but it’s become my new favorite over the last couple of days.
Crackmonkey– (n) A person who runs around like a monkey on crack. Includes fits of giggling, restlessness, and babbling. A natural state: If drugs are actually involved, the person is just high and eligible for the title of crackmonkey.
I’ve been acting like a crackmonkey for large chunks of the week. Running around like a maniac, annoying the shit out of co-workers, and all for no fucking reason.
There’s a couple potential reasons: I drink enormous amounts of caffiene to keep myself awake in the morning, and sometimes it all hits at once, causing me to act like a crackmonkey.
Also, sometimes my long-dormant ADD decides to act up for a few hours, and I run around like a crackmonkey until I can bring it back under control.
But regardless of my own personal situation, I feel that crackmonkey is a fantastically descriptive term that should be brought into widespread use.
