Serendipi - what?

I love this word: serendipity.

The Concise Oxford Dictionary defines it as,

"the faculty of making happy and unexpected discoveries by accident [coined by Horace Walpole (1754) after "The Three Princes of Serendip (Sri Lanka), a fairy-tale]"

Thanks, Horace, for summing up my whole life in one word!
