My Plea for More Viewers & A Short Entry
February 20th, 2001 - 3:45 amI'm Currently Avoiding:
Well, I have every intention of being finished with this entry by 4 am, interruptions or no, so I'm guessing this entry's going to be fairly short. I thought about not doing one at all, but I'd already gotten the word of the day copied, so I figured I might as well. I think I may get creative and add a background here that isn't black...well, sort of anyway. It depends on if I really want to do this or not now...so maybe there'll be a new background and maybe there won't. Aren't you excited? I don't know if I even have anything interesting, or worth speaking about, but I guess if you're bored reading this one time in 70, that's not too bad of odds. Anyway, here's...
limn [v. Leman-n-lim]
In the 1400s, people would decorate manuscripts with gold, silver, and vibrant colors. To illuminate the texts was to limn them (although at the time it was spelled limnen or lemynen). The word was borrowed from the latin luminare (illuminate), which traces back to lumen (radiant energy).
The more contemporary use of the word means to draw, paint, sketch, or copy on a surface.
More figuratively, limn is used to describe the act of outlining something in clear, sharp detail. Near synonyms include delineate, describe, represent, depict, portray, and relate.
Hmmm...what else do I want to babble about for 5 minutes or so? The candy conspiracy takes more than that, so we'll save that for later... I got one of those stupid chain e-mails the other day. This one was the "Good Luck Hawaiian Penis" chain...one of the more bizarre ones I've seen. I miss cartoons from the 80's. They were so innocent and cheesy then. 80's movies rocked too...but you can still find those on videocassette someplace a lot of the time. Tick, tick, tick....time is running out! I've got Girl Scouts down to rant about, but I looked back on some of my very earliest entries and I did that already. And I feel as if I've mentioned this fact already, but I'm not going to waste time looking. If it's repetitive, deal with it. 330+ people listed this guy as one of their favorite diaries to read. I can see why. I wish I was half as popular as he is. I don't even think 300 people READ this diary on anything resembling a regular basis. In fact, I'm pretty sure they don't. So all my voyeurs should spread the word so that I don't feel so neglected. Have I whined enough yet? More people should read my diary damnit...and they need to e-mail me too. I'd like to be e-mailed about opinions and things. Or they could be novel and write something on the message board instead. Time's UP! Ding!
