Word of the Day 11/15 -- Goin' out to Bob

Here's a word with French etymology. I could tell right away by the crazy Frenchy spelling.
flaneur \flah-NUR\, noun:
One who strolls about aimlessly; a lounger; a loafer.
Flaneur comes from French, from flâner, "to saunter; to stroll; to lounge

Am I the only one obsessed with words, etymologies, and spelling? Anybody else love spelling bees?
