Entry: venulated (adj.)

In context: "An intoxicated street-guy with a venulated nose and missing incisors and electrician's tape wrapped around his shoes is trying to sing 'Volare' up at the empty podium microphone."

Definition: A neologism, perhaps surprisingly.  I'd guess something like 'strewn with veins', given the context and word form.
