Nobody knows how long this entry will be. Actually, I never know how long *any* entry is going to be. This one is just going to be more arbitrary than most. I don't know how much I'm going to get typed in this entry because I have like a bajillion things to do before 4 am, which is in about 2 hours and 15 minutes. I have to shower, pack, do dishes, throw out garbage, play on the internet, pack up my computer, call a taxi, and then go to the airport at 4. Whee. Or not. Probably or not. The whole, not having had any sleep since 6 this morning thing doesn't help at all and is pretty negative, but on the other hand, I'm going on vacation and I get to see people and stuff, which is all positive. Now the only question is, what do I want to do first? Oh, and I have to see if there are any bills I need to pay before I leave. Yet another thing to do...oh joy. The whole bill thing probably wouldn't be so hard if my desk didn't look like a tornado blew through it, scattering papers everywhere.

I think it would be easier to pack if I didn't have to pack for two different climates, one of which is about 30 degrees farenheit warmer than the other one. Darn confusing things.

Stuff

solstice (n. SAHL-stiss or SOHL-stiss)

: the time of year when the sun is farthest north of the equator or farthest south of the equator

Solstice owes much to a merry old sol -- the Latin noun sol, meaning sun. The ancients added sol to -stitium (from status, the past participle of the verb sistere, meaning to come to a standstill). That's because for several days around the time of the solstices, the sun's appearance on the horizon at sunrise and sunset seems to occur at the same spot, before it starts drifting to the north or south again. Speakers of Old French adapted solstitium to form solstice, and Middle English speakers borrowed the term during the 13th century. In the northern hemisphere, the summer solstice occurs on June 21 or 22 and the winter solstice on December 21 or 22. In the Southern Hemisphere, where the seasons are reversed, the solstices are exactly the opposite.

Oops, time's up. See you in a few weeks.
