Diaryland Works Again...Whee.

Diaryland actually works! Whee. Or something. Um, what did I want to update about anyway? Besides the fact that Kevin Bacon can sort of sing, which surprised the heck out of me. I caught the very, very end of Jeepers, Creepers and boy is that an icky ending movie. Blech. It was just...blech. I can't come up with a better word. It was...really grotesque. I am bored out of my mind. Damn things for being uncooperative. I mean, I even resorted to doing work, voluntarily. Do you have any idea how bored I have to be to willingly devote myself to the task of reading 16th-century French? Even translated into the modern French it's not a fun thing.
affluent (adj. AF-loo-unt)
1 : flowing in abundance
2 : having a generously sufficient and typically increasing supply of material possessions
Are you overflowing with possessions? Does the money
flow in? Are your assets fluid? If so, you can consider
yourself affluent. Today's word is really all about flow -- that is to say, it's based on the Latin word for flow, which is fluere. (Some other fluere descendants are confluence, fluctuate, fluid, influence, mellifluous, and superfluous.) The older use of affluent refers, both literally and figuratively, to an abundant flow, as in an affluent fountain or affluent joy. In fact, it was probably the tendency to use affluent fortune for an abundant flow of money that led to our using affluent as a synonym of well-to-do.
Did I have anything else to say? Except for the continued damnation of virtue.nu for not cooperating when I'd like it to, no, I don't think I do. I mean, I could put an anti-song in here, but I still have a bunch of others all mixed up in my head. There was "I am strong, I am invincible, I am WO-MAN" and that's mixing with "I am woman hear me roar...numbers to strong to ignore..."(I think those are two different songs?) and then there's "it takes a woman, a dainty woman..." from My Fair Lady and there might be another song in there someplace.
Hmm...I really don't think I'm going to stay awake until 7 am to watch "South Park: Bigger, Longer, & Uncut." It's just not that interesting. Dang. This is one foul-mouthed movie. Good grief. Hmm. Okay. Nevermind then. Ciao.
