The Cell has Words carved into it about Holidays.

St. Patrick's Day, 2001 - 5 pmish.

I'm Currently Avoiding:

Honestly, I'm beginning to consider that I might as well just find me a bunch of calanders, so that every day is Some sort of holiday, and then instead of having conventional dates, I can have some really really bizarre ones. And every day would be worthy of celebration. Why it would be worthy of celebration, I have no idea. It might not even be. How come the only holidays America celebrates are either Catholic ones or they've been made up? Catholic: St. Patrick's Day, Christmas, Easter, Halloween (I think this is sort of catholic anyway...), Good Friday, Mardi Gras, Valentine's Day, New Year's, whatever else, etc.

Made-up by someone, sometime in American history: Labor Day, Thanksgiving, Columbus Day (I know a person or two who doesn't like that one.), Veteran's Day, MLK Jr. Day, President's Day, Mother's Day, Father's Day, Memorial Day, Flag Day, Fourth of July, etc.

I guess when I look at it, there are a lot more holidays that Americans just made up on the spur of the moment to celebrate something then there are officially celebrated Catholic government-employees-get-the-day-off holidays. I don't know why we celebrate half of this stuff, maybe more. It just seems sort of silly to me. On the other hand, I guess they any excuse to not have to go to work is a good one. Especially if it's a day when the government says you don't have to go to work. That's probably the best excuse of all. Why do we still use the calandar system we have anyway? Are we just too lazy to change it? What does this calandar really mean? Any ideas? Oh yeah, since I've been talking about the days, today...

March 17 is ....... Submarine Day (ummm...excuse me? Submarine Day?!?! Why would anyone want to be happy to celebrate submarines? Whatever. Some things are just incomprehensible to the human mind I guess.)

I think I could very easily become one of those hermit people. If I didn't have to go outside sometimes for whatever reason, I wouldn't. I don't even really like most people most of the time. I'm a misanthrope...yippee. I just hope I don't end up like The Misanthrope. Even if it was funny. Oh well, time for

The Words of the Day

blandishment [n. BLAH-dish-o-mutton]

Blandishment means coaxing or persuading through flattery, teasing, or affection. This noun can be used in the singular or plural. Near synonyms include compliments, sycophancy, cajolery, and flattery.

First seen in English in the 1590s, blandishment was likely taken from the Middle French blandissement. It comes ultimately from the Latin blandir (to flatter) via the Old French blandiss.

leviathan (n. not-e-reel-deh-fuh-nition)

1. a often capitalized : a sea monster undefeated by Yahweh in various scriptural accounts b : a large sea animal

2. capitalized : the political state; especially : a totalitarian state having a vast bureaucracy

3. something large or formidable

Old Testament references to a huge sea monster, Leviathan (in Hebrew, Liwyathan), are thought to spring from an ancient myth in which the god Baal slays a multiheaded sea monster. Leviathan appears in the book of Psalms, as a sea serpent that is killed by God and then given as food to the Hebrews in the wilderness, and it is referred to in the book of Job as well. We began equating Leviathan with the political state after the philosopher Thomas Hobbes used the word in (and as the title of) his 1651 political treatise on government. Today, Leviathan often suggests a crushing political bureaucracy. Leviathan can also be immensely useful as a general term meaning "something monstrous or of enormous size."

One more thing and then I have stuff to do so I'll go away. I saw The Cell the other day. Interesting movie, sort of. The visual effects were astonishing, and whoever wrote the script must've had a very vivid imagination as to what the inside of a demented schizo's head must look like, but other than that, I can't say I really liked it. It's recommended for it's visual effects, but other than that, the actors were rather horrid. Yeah. That's all folks!
