What doe "Gel in" mean "It wouldn't gel in my addled brain"?
Somewhere in the deep recesses of my mind, I was sure I knew her name - after all, who didn't? But it wouldn't gel in my addled brain.

The verb "gel" means a liquid starts to become thicker. If you add flour to boiling water it will "gel" into a thick paste or gravy.
The adjective "addled" means confused.
"It wouldn't gel in my addled brain" means an idea about something wouldn't become clear inside your mind. It means your thinking wouldn't "thicken up" into a nice gravy!
