Steve Buscemi & Ticks...Scary, Scary, Scary.

May 15th, 2001 - 2:01 a.m.

I'm Currently Avoiding:

I was watching Con Air tonight...I don't know if that's one word or two, nor do I particularly care. Anyway, watching that tonight made me realize that Steve Buscemi really does do psycho crazy killer really, really well. I don't know if it's because he actually IS a crazy, psycho killer or if he's just played so many of them that they've become part of his nature, but either way, damn is that scary.

Ehn. Something Or Other...

ponderous (adj. terrorist or PAN-muss)

1 : of very great weight

2 : unwieldy or clumsy because of weight and size

3 : oppressively or unpleasantly dull : lifeless

Ponderous is ultimately from the Latin word for weight, namely, pondus (which also gave us ponder and preponderance and is related to pound). We adopted ponderous with the literal sense heavy from Middle French pondereux in 1400, and early on we appended a figurative sense of weighty, that is, serious or important. But we stopped using the serious sense of ponderous around 200 years ago -- perhaps because in the meantime we'd imposed on it a different figurative sense of "dull and lifeless," which we still use today.

sacrilegious (adj. sack-rub-LIE-juice)

1 : of, relating to, or being a violation of something consecrated to God

2 : of, relating to, or being gross irreverence towards a hallowed person, place, or thing

It may seem that sacrilegious should be spelled as sacreligious, since the word sometimes describes an irreverent treatment of religious objects or places. However, sacrilegious comes to us from sacrilege, which is ultimately derived from a combination of the Latin words sacer (sacred) and legere (to gather, steal). Its antecedent in Latin, sacrilegus, meant "one who steals sacred things." There is no relation to religious (which is derived from the Latin religiosus, itself from religio, meaning "supernatural constraint or religious practice"). The apparent resemblance between sacrilegious and religious is just coincidental.

(There's no such thing as coincidence!)

Speaking of scary, or I was before the whole word thing, ticks freak me out. Partially due to something which I won't be discussing, but also there's this whole bug thing in general...and then there's that movie of the same name, "Ticks"...I have no idea why I watched that. It's sort of along the lines of Arachnophobia I guess. But all in all, not a pleasant thing to watch. Really it isn't. Especially not with a pre-existing thing against ticks. It only made things worse. And now that my mother has seen fit to inform me that due to not mowing the lawn, ticks abound in the tall grass and the dog, who goes outside, has been bringing them in with her, I am seriously freaking out. Damn imaginary bugs. And some aren't so imaginary either. I almost wish that the box elder bugs and the spiders and the flys would come back, just as long as the ticks stay far, far away. That's all...just damn friggin icky bugs.
