I *So* Need to Go to Bed

October 31st, 2001 - 4:27 a.m.

I'm Currently Avoiding:

I've an exam, my head hurts, and it's already much too late. Damn time and it's stupid relativity. I would've written this yesterday, but I was busy being unconscious for a good portion of it. I probably would've been awake to write it if I'd gotten that nap I wanted when I wanted it. Instead, I was forced to sleep for a very long time rather than having a nap and then another longer nap. I'm on crack. I have this delusional rant/babble thing I was writing during ethics again, and I was going to put it here, but it's frigging 4:30 in the morning now and I'm waay too tired to do this shit.

There was this awful noise keeping me awake yesterday. The fan/air conditioning/heating thing is normally kind of noisy, but it's a low hum kind of thing so it's quiet enough that I can ignore it. However, the fan is now on it's dying breath or something and in order to properly express itself, it has chosen to make a noise that sounds like a rocks going constantly through a lawnmower. Makes it completely impossible to sleep. Drove me nuts. So I finally found a way around it though. I just have to turn off the thing downstairs and take it off of auto in order for me to have some peace. Did I do anything for Halloween/am I going to? And the answer is...no. Unless you want to count me painting my fingernails black. If you do, well, then that's what I did for Halloween. I'm going to go shoot myself for still being awake now. Bye. Might update later. Like while it's still Halloween, but not yet November.

The Nefariously Petulant Virtuoso Performs...

nefarious (adj. nih-FAIR-ee-us)

: flagrantly wicked or impious : evil

Vicious and villainous are two wicked synonyms of nefarious, and, like nefarious, both mean highly reprehensible or offensive in character, nature, or conduct. But these synonyms are not used in exactly the same way in all situations. Vicious may imply moral depravity or it may connote malignancy, cruelty, or destructive violence. Villainous applies to any evil, depraved, or vile conduct or characteristic, while nefarious (which comes from a Latin root meaning crime) suggests flagrant breaching of time-honored laws and traditions of conduct.

petulant (adj. PEH-chuh-lunt)

1 : insolent or rude in speech or behavior

2 : characterized by temporary or capricious ill humor : peevish

Petulant is one among many English words akin to or derived from the Latin verb petere, which means to go to, to attack, to seek, or to request. Petere is a relative of the Latin adjective petulans, petulantis (impudent), from which petulant was derived. Some other words that are related to petere are compete and appetite. Competere, the Latin precursor to compete, is a joining of the prefix com- with the verb petere. The joining of ad- and petere led to appetere (to strive after), and eventually to appetitus, the source of our appetite. Additional descendants of petere are petition, perpetual, and impetus.

virtuoso (n. ver-choo-OH-so or ver-choo-OH-zoh)

1 : one skilled in or having a taste for the fine arts

2 : one who excels in the technique of an art; especially : a highly skilled musical performer

3 : a person who has great skill at some endeavor

English speakers borrowed the Italian noun virtuoso in the 1600s. It comes in turn from the Italian adjective virtuoso, which means both virtuous and skilled. In English, virtuoso can be pluralized as either virtuosos or virtuosi, and it is often used attributively (a virtuoso performer). The first virtuosos were men of substantial knowledge and learning (great wits, to quote one 17th century clergyman). The word was then transferred to those skilled in the arts, and by the 18th century it had acquired its specific sense applied to musicians. In the 20th century, English speakers broadened virtuoso again to apply to a person skilled in any pursuit.

Shoot me. Please. Then I won't have this pain in my head and I won't be taking that test later. I *so* need to go to bed.
