Bad Weather...Blame the Welkin!
November 24th, 2001 - 11:25 p.m.I'm Currently Avoiding:
Oh look! It's another entry! This makes three for November 24th alone! I'm going to have to stop that. But I can't update now, I have to wait until I have a word to go along with this. It just doesn't work otherwise. Well, now that it's no longer the 24th, I have my word and I can write my entry. Or go to bed. One or the other. I'm rather tired at the moment. Why, I don't really know. I think I've become addicted to bagel chips...the cinnamon raisin kind. They're pretty yummy. I like them better than normal potato chips, easily.
welkin (n. WELL-kun)
1 a : the vault of the sky : firmament b : the celestial abode of God or the gods : heaven
2 : the upper atmosphere
When it comes to welkin, the sky's the limit. This
heavenly word has been used in English to refer to the vault of the sky since at least the 12th century, and it derives from an even earlier Old English word that meant cloud. In modern English, welkin is still flying high, and it is often teamed with the verb ring to suggest a loud noise or an exuberant expression of emotion, as in the welkin rang with the sound of the orchestra or her hearty laugh made the welkin ring. But these contemporary phrases didn't just drop from the sky. Today's phrase the welkin rings echoes an older use -- the original words of a carol that once began "Hark, how all the welkin ring," which we know better as "Hark! The herald angels sing."
I've been drinking a lot of the vanilla cream soda that these people make lately. They also make a Black Cherry Soda, which is really...interesting in a strange way. I really can't decide if I like it or not. I don't think I'll be trying that flavor again, however, so I guess I didn't.
The weather is really bizarre at the moment. Today especially. I went grocery shopping at about 8:30 or so tonight, and I was actually *too* warm with my winter coat open, a t-shirt, and sandals on. It should be cold...it's nearly December! However, it isn't. It's all very odd. I'm waiting for it to snap and suddenly get bitterly cold. Until then, I guess I'll just deal or something. It's not that I dislike the warmth, quite the opposite, but it just seems terribly unnatural for it to be warm in November. Absolut Vodka Commercials...I'm going to have to get to those and why they annoy me next time. I don't particularly feel like typing any more in this diary tonight. I'm tired...but busy so I won't be going to bed, I just wish I was. Oh look! 1:24! Ha. That would make me happier if I was another person (gratuitous link) rather than me.
