Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 1301
orrery, sinecure, brainiac, oleaginous
The oleaginous Professor Schmarm sidled up, curled his arm around my waist, then breathily reassured me that the task of maintaining his rickety brass orrery was an absolute doddle, an utter sinecure, a really cushy number, something that any solar brainiac like myself could do virtually 'lying down' (his phrase), so astronomical was my scope.
