Saw the following in the NYTimes today:

"I get calls from people sometimes, and I don't return them," Ms. Buono
said mischievously. "I got a call from Maggie Hassan after the election.
She is the governor of New Hampshire. We had tried to get her in a
gajillian times and she wouldn't."

The word is properly "gajillion", but this is the NYTimes, so I thought it
worthy of mention. FYI, "gajillian" has 6,450 ghits; "gajillion" has 301k.
