    The person who does the visiting "drops in". The word "interloper" comes to mind also.

    Cool Re: About Slang

    Maybe "inopportune"; "ill-timed." If he/she is not expected but showing up anyway, he/she is a person without sense of what's correct.

    Hmmm - not in English. A varan is any of various large tropical carnivorous lizards of Africa and Asia and Australia
