I'm Currently Avoiding:

Hmm. I'm updating again apparently. Why, I haven't the slightest idea. I'm guessing that I'm doing it to avoid doing other things. In other words, this is a procrastination device at the moment and I really don't have anything to say here but I don't want to do certain other things so I'm writing a diary entry instead. Whee. Isn't that fun? The last time I did that was yesterday, and that resulted in a very strange paragraph about gummi bears, so we'll just have to see what strange things my mind'll come up with this time. And how long it's going to take me to do this. So far it's been about an hour but I haven't really done more than a paragraph or two. Oh the joys of multi-tasking and forgetting that certain windows exist. Especially this one. I didn't write anything here for about 15 minutes. Oops, there goes another 10. Ha. I should stop being so worried about the time. Time is an evil, subjective frigger anyway.

Eww.

haruspex (n. huh-RUSS-peks)

: a diviner in ancient Rome basing his predictions on inspection of the entrails of sacrificial animals

Haruspex was formed in Latin by the combination of

haru- (which is akin to chorde, the Latin word for gut) and -spex (from the verb specere, meaning to look). Appropriately, haruspex can be roughly defined as one who looks at guts. The ancient Romans had a number of ways of determining whether the gods approved of a particular course of action. Such divination was called augury, and a haruspex was a type of augur, an official diviner of ancient Rome. (Other augurs divined the will of the gods through slightly less gruesome means, such as observing the behavior of birds or tracking celestial phenomena.) Haruspex, like augur, has developed a general sense of one who prophesies, but this use is somewhat rare.

Haruspex? Well...that's an icky word. Not one I'd ever heard of before, but icky all the same. Oh, and now it's been more than two hours since I started this. Whee. I don't know why I bothered to start this in the first place, since I haven't written much in it and I've done a perfectly good job of procrastinating without it as it is. Maybe next time I want to procrastinate, I'll do something else and not write a diary entry. Of course, if I was going to do things that way, I'd never write any new diary entries. And that would be a shame...well, maybe. In about 35 minutes I'm going to go watch The Fifth Element. I haven't seen that movie in awhile. From what I remember of it though, it isn't a very sane movie. Oh well...whoever said movies should have a plot that makes sense hasn't seen probably 1/3 or more of the movies out there. Maybe I'll give a review or something of it when I get back. But for now, I think I'll just put in a description and hit the "done!" button.
