I've always laughed that one of the listed moods on the pulldown menu on MySpace's blog thing is "quixotic". Like who the F would ever say "Gee, I'm feeling mighty quixotic today." Nevertheless, it's still a cool word with an interesting literary history even though I'd punch you if you tried to really use it in everyday speech; though I suppose writing it is OK.

quix·ot·ic – {kwik-sot-ik} – adjective
1. (sometimes initial capital letter) resembling or befitting Don Quixote.
2. extravagantly chivalrous or romantic; visionary, impractical, or impracticable.
3. impulsive and often rashly unpredictable.
