My computer is running abysmally slow and some of the pages don't work right. Yay me. What'd I want to do a diary entry for? I haven't the slightest idea. Damn my memory. Well, if I have no reason I can think of for one to exist, then we'll do one anyway and it shall be comprised of those annoying cut and paste things you all know and love.
Speaking of which, I've missed a few days, so here are about a week's worth of days, with the most recent and only relevant one being last. (Why? Because it copies that way and it's all sequential and stuff.) So, today, yesterday, the day before yesterday, and the day before that...
May 13 is ......... Leprechaun Day (Huh? Um, wouldn't it make more sense to have this in March?)
May 14 is ......... National Dance Like A Chicken Day (Chickens Dance? Since when?)
May 15 is ......... National Chocolate Chip Day (hmm...why not World Chocolate Day? Or doesn't the world like chocolate as much as we do?)
May 16 is ......... Wear Purple For Peace Day (Why purple? I thought white was the color for peace, not purple. Isn't purple supposed to be royalty? Oh yeah, that'll really work...everyone pretending to be King or Queen of their own little world for the day in order to promote peace? I don't think so.)
receipt (n. really-SWEET)
1 : recipe
2 : the act of receiving
3 : something received -- usually used in plural
4 : a writing acknowledging the receiving of goods or money
These days it may seem odd to speak of "grandma's cookie receipt," but at one time the only meaning of receipt as recipe. The first recorded use of receipt is a reference to a medicinal preparation in Chaucer's _Canterbury Tales_ (c. 1386). Recipe didn't arrive until the 1500s, and it was also first used to describe medicine. Both words began to be applied to cooking only in the 18th century, after which recipe slowly became the preferred word. Receipt acquired its currently more familiar sense of "a written statement saying that money or goods have been received" in the 17th century. Both receipt and recipe are thought to be ultimately derived from the Latin recipere (to receive), making them probable relatives as well as synonyms.
Does anybody know what concupiscent means? I do now...muwahahahaha! That appeared in a book I was reading earlier, and given what kind of book it was, that word makes complete sense, even if I can't really recall the context in which it was used. Ehn. Time to end this pitiful excuse for an entry. I was going to do a whole quote thing, but that was one of the pages that froze, and I don't feel like doing the things necessary to make it unfreeze, so you're just out of luck.
Feeling lucky? Choose an Entry At RANDOM! Yes. Random. Randomosity is cool...come on, you know you want to... Well, if you don't subscribe to peer pressure, then just go Back or Forward with the Dragons below:
