    Re: I would appreciate it if you could answer for me

    fancy word? A multi-sylable word that many people woudn't understand. Hyperurbanism is one such word that means just that. A fancy word. Often a criticism as a simpler word would be better.

    a saucy steamy lover The lover is an individual who makes love; it is a hot, torrid, affair, thus steamy. And as for saucy, well, I guess that means (s)he's well, saucy!

    I virtually didn't sleep
    This is a poor use of words. The proper expression would be I practically didn't sleep or I got very little sleep or I literally didn't sleep. People often use "virtually" when they mean "literally" - and even then, it's probably wrong - or "almost." I was virtually run over - either you were (use literally) or you were not (use almost).,
