\LOH-gee\ I get very logy when I first wake up. If I don’t have my first cup of mojo within 5 minutes of my wake-up time, then I remain “logy” for the rest of the day. Being at my Swedish lessons makes me “logy”. And now that I have written “logy” three times, I should be able to use it in my common day language.
adjective
1. lacking physical or mental energy or vitality; sluggish; dull; lethargic.
Quotes
I was logy from the sun and my mind felt sticky and slow.
— Stephen King, Carrie, 1974
