What does “skilluppity” mean?

“Mr. W, you know a lot about technology for a teacher.”

“Thanks, Lucas.”

“How did you learn that stuff about webpages?”

“I just kind of looked it up.”

“Can I look it up, too?”

“Sure.”

“What’s that called — when I learn on my own how to do new things?”

“Well, if it’s something you’d likely put on a resume, it’s called skilling up.”

“Did I just skill up by learning that?”

“Don’t get skilluppity.”

“What’s that?”

“I….don’t know. I think I just made it up.”

“Are you going to put this on your weird blog about gypsy techno?”

“No, not that one…never that one…”
