For the past week, political junkies throughout my home city of Chicago have been rubbing our hands in giddy anticipation.
Meanwhile, Rosemary is giddy at a kitchen “as large if not larger than the whole apartment in which they were living.”
His editor, Bill Kristol, responded to the news with a giddy email: "I look forward to working with her!"
Old English gidig, variant of gydig "insane, mad, stupid, possessed (by a spirit)," probably from Proto-Germanic *gud-iga-, from *gudam "god" + *-ig "possessed." Meaning "having a confused, swimming sensation" is from 1560s. Meaning "elated" is from 1540s. Related: Giddily; giddiness.
