Time To Stop Writing

Hmm...it's been 6 hours or so, must be time to update again. Oh look, there went 40 minutes. Ha. Oh, and there's another...uh, hour maybe? Gee, I really do have problems with time. Of course, I have nothing to update again. What was I updating for? Oh yeah, lack of interest or something. I don't know. Clue is good, The Fifth Element is kind of good, but I don't really know, since I was busy doing other things for the majority of that movie. Rush Hour 2 is...ehhh...I don't know. Stuff. I now own a tv, courtesy of my departed roommate who isn't coming back for this semester. Somehow I think this might be very detrimental to my already lax study habits. Adding yet another way in which I can be easily distracted from studying probably isn't a good thing.
deem (v. DEEM)
transitive sense : to come to think or judge : consider
intransitive sense : to have an opinion : believe
In the Middle Ages, demen was a fateful word. Closely related to doom, this precursor of deem meant to act as a judge or to sentence, condemn, or decree. These meanings passed to deem itself, but we haven't used deem to mean legally condemn since the early 17th century. Though deem is still frequently used in law contexts, today it means judge only in a broader sense of to decide (something specified) regarding, as in the act was deemed unlawful or the defendant is deemed to have agreed to the contract. Outside of the law, deem usually means simply to consider. Some usage commentators consider deem pretentious, but its use is well established in both literary and journalistic contexts. We deem it perfectly acceptable.
Well, I've already wasted roughly 2 hours and 15 minutes on this so it must be time to stop writing.
