Being both excited enough by something to squee
, yet embarrassed/intimidated enough to eep
. The warm feeling you get when someone compliments you heavily, while at the same time feeling uncomfortable with all the attention and praise. The feeling you get when you've landed a really challenging, exciting, yet intimidating job. Root words, squee + eep.
Also: squeeped, squeeping, squeepy.
"I totally squeeped when he told me he'd never seen eyes as pretty as mine. I've never had a guy tell me that, before."
"You should have seen him squeeping about landing that contract--when he wasn't bouncing off the walls with joy, he was wide-eyed with worry over all the things he would have to do."
