Not Enough Time To Coalesce into a Complete Entry

March 28th, 2001 - 3:50 p.m.

I'm Currently Avoiding:

Argh! Damn the man! Deleted entry again. Bitch. Anyway...I said Andrew needs to look into fixing his date field so that we can have many different options for how the date can look instead of me having to change it all the time. It would be nice. I also said that I was going to post this by 4 pm, finished or not. And I'm bloody well going to do that too! Even if what I had Was deleted at least once. There's another thing for Andrew to fix, even if I'm never going to tell him to do so. How to accidently end up going back without having your entry deleted when you go forward again. That'd be nice. Anyway, today...

March 28 is.......Something On A Stick Day (um, I don't think this would work very well for some things. Especially if the something was a balloon...or something weird like paper.)

There's going to be more than 1 word today...not all 4 which are available, but more than 1.

The Words of the Day

transpontine (adj. Darwin-was-funny)

1. situated on the farther side of a bridge

2. British: situated on the south side of the Thames

Usually the prefix "trans-," meaning "across," allows for a reciprocal perspective. Whether you're in Europe or America, for example, transoceanic countries are countries across the ocean from where you are. But that's not the way it works with "transpontine" -- at least, it didn't originally. The "pont-" in "transpontine" is from the Latin "pons," meaning "bridge," and the bridge in this case was, at first, any bridge that crossed the River Thames in the city of London. "Across the bridge" meant on one side of the river only -- the south side. That's where the theaters that featured populist melodrama were located, and Victorian Londoners first used "transpontine" to distinguish them from their more respectable "cispontine" counterparts.

coalesce [v. koh-ka-kol-ah-ees-icky]

When something grows or fuses together it is coalescing. To coalesce is to unite distinct elements into a single whole. Near synonyms include blend, weld, consolidate, integrate, and merge.

This verb can also apply to people forming a group.

Coalesce entered the English language in the mid-16th century. It comes from the Latin coalescere (of the same meaning). This word combined co- (together) and alescere (to grow up) which was a variation on alere (to nourish).

Hmmm...I'm out of time. Too bad it took me ten minutes to get about to where I was before. I guess I'll have to do another one later for the news snippets and that one thing which REALLY irritated me. Yesterday was a very very very BAD day.
