The Return....from the Dead?
January 13th, 2000 - Really Damn Early aka 4:45 amI'm Currently Avoiding:
Well, I have returned. Contrary to popular belief, my absence was not due to some convoluted plot....although that would've been really spiffy. I told myself to write some things down that were interesting so I could put them here, but then I think I forgot to write them down. My bad. It is ridiculously early in the morning. I have absolutely NO idea as to why I am still awake. I don't even know why I'm writing this, except perhaps to let my loyal viewers know that I am live and well, and to get the Canadian thing off of the front page...although there wasn't really anything wrong with the Canadian thing at all. Did anyone enjoy reading those things while I was gone? (Or writing them if they happen to be one of the few who did so...and there weren't many of them.) Would you be happy if I did this more often? Were you interested in the variety of styles and things presented by different authors? Were you wondering why Batman has that weird thing? Anyway...time for
stentorian [adj. sten-TOR-e-un or sten-TOHR-e-un]
Stentorian means very loud and very powerful in sound. Near synonyms include booming, far-reaching, clamorous, deafening, and resounding. Example: "The substitute teacher's stentorian voice immediately quieted the surprised students."
Stentorian is a word that was inspired by the name of a Greek warrior in the Trojan war. Stentor's loud voice earned him a job as a herald. In the Iliad, Homer described Stentor as having a voice as loud as that of 50 men. The name Stentor was inspired by the Greek verb stenein (to groan, moan).
This English adjective has been in use since the late 16th century.
Stentor is noted in Book V: Homer's Iliad on the Internet.
Anyway, there was something you probably didn't know. But did you even care? I'm guessing not, but that's just my opinion, which is the only opinion that matters since after all, it Is all about me. I have an interesting rant involving convenience stores and their lack of convenience, but I think I'll save that for a time when I'm warmer and less tired. Goodnight!
At the tone the time will be 5:29 am. *dong*....(Ding dong the witch is dead, which old witch? The wicked witch! Ding dong the wicked witch is dead....) ARGHH!!!!! Get it out of my head, get it out of my head!!!!
