Odd Antipathy Toward The Diary

January 25th, 2002 - 1:46 a.m.

I'm Currently Avoiding:

I think I'm going nuts. Or something. I should really stop being so completely and totally ambivalent to this diary. I mean, it might get offended or something if I don't pay attention. Of course, I've sort of neglected it for roughly an hour and 45 minutes already. And that's not even counting the time earlier I neglected it before my computer froze and I was obliged to shut it off and turn it back on. I swear, I'm never buying a Compaq laptop again. Next time I'm going to get a Sony Vaio or something. Although, to be honest, I was probably asking too much of the poor thing. There was another word of the day here, but it got eaten when my computer froze and I'm not sure if I can retrieve it. I'm certainly not going to go to the trouble of *trying* to retrieve it. It was only a word after all. I've been doing all sorts of somewhat interesting things lately. Well, creatively interesting or something I suppose. I updated my webpage twice this week (just little things, but updates nonetheless). Additionally, I finished Ch. 9 of my story and I've written about 1/2 a page of Ch. 10. I know this might seem like paltry things to you, but to me, they're really quite remarkable. I haven't written this much for fun in quite awhile. And I'm actually doing stuff with the website which is also really strange. Normally I ignore it for ages at a time. Maybe it's just a sign of my boredom. Well, I'm going to lunch tomorrow afternoon so I'd better go to bed now. I have to be awake in 6 or 7 hours.

The Ascetics of Something or Other

ascetic (adj. uh-SEH-tik)

1 : practicing strict self-denial as a measure of personal and especially spiritual discipline

2 : austere in appearance, manner, or attitude

Ascetic comes from asketikos, a Greek adjective meaning laborious. Ultimately, it comes from the Greek verb askein, which means exercise or work. There aren't many other English words from askein, but there's no dearth of synonyms for ascetic. Severe and austere, for example, are two words that share with ascetic the basic meaning given to or marked by strict discipline and firm restraint. Ascetic implies abstention from pleasure and comfort or self-indulgence as spiritual discipline, whereas severe implies standards enforced without indulgence or laxity and may suggest harshness (as in severe military discipline). Austere stresses absence of warmth, color, or feeling and may apply to rigorous restraint, simplicity, or self-denial (as in living an austere life in the country).
