I just saw a preview for the new movie "big fat LIAR". I'm tempted to go see that movie just because they die the man blue and turn him into a real-life Smurf. He's only missing the little white hat. Errr...an hour and 45 minutes later...what was I doing with this window again?
mnemonic (adj. nih-MAH-nik)
: assisting or designed to assist memory
The word mnemonic derives from Greek mnemon (mindful), which itself comes from the Greek word for remember. (In classical mythology, Mnemosyne, the mother of the Muses, is the goddess of memory.) As with many classical borrowings, we retained the double initial consonant, but not the pronunciation of both, since the combination doesn't occur naturally in English. (Pneumonia is a similar case.) Mnemonic can also be a noun meaning a mnemonic device. If the spelling of this word strikes you as particularly fiendish to remember, try this mnemonic to get you started on the right track: keep in mind that although the pronunciation begins with an n sound, the spelling begins with an m, as in memory.

I love this quote. I really like the idea of that line not working anymore. It just seems like such a good idea. I have absolutely no desire whatsoever to continue to write in this thing at all. I just wanted to share the quote. It seems very, very appropriate. Or something. I just don't want to write in this anymore. Maybe I'll just go to bed or something. That's a thought at least.
