Word of the Day: Forgainst

Have you ever felt ambivalent about something, such that you couldn't tell if you were for or against it? I feel that way sometimes about sexy jerks, my fourth Scotch and soda of the night, or my third helping of nachos. I'm usually "forgainst" those things. Or to put a new spin on a recently oft-heard phrase: I'm against it before I'm for it. (Apparently, this comes from a line Sarah Silverman utters in the movie Run, Ronnie Run.) What things are you guys forgainst?
