@j According to "The Meaning of Liff" that's called "Woking", from the verb "To woke". Usually of the kitchen, but now more generally applied.
Woking (ptcpl. vb.): Standing in the kitchen wondering what you came in here for.

@j Understood, and I sympathise. Liff isn't a book to be read, though, it's a book to be dup into. Read a few entries, perhaps mark with pencil the ones you've seen, then put it down again. It's not funny in bulk (IMO).
