Obnubilate...Strange Word.

February 9th, 2002 - 4:15 a.m.

I'm Currently Avoiding:

Here's a good question...mornings suck, why am I awake? And what is this, epic month on the movie channels? It seems like almost every time I flip to the movie channels they're playing Gladiator, Braveheart, or Bram Stoker's Dracula. Jeez. I mean, I sort of saw parts of American Pie, Jeepers Creepers, and the South Park movie too, but it's more common for some grand cinematic epic to be showing.

Okay, I've had this window open and staring at me for more than two hours now. Enough is enough. Time to move on...to playing tetris and talking to people and writing stuff and...whatever else it is that I'm doing. Ciao.

Glass is easily Obnubilated...

obnubilate (v. ahb-NOO-buh-layt)

: becloud, obscure

The meaning of obnubilate becomes clearer when you know that its ancestors are the Latin terms ob- (meaning in the way) and nubes (cloud). It's a high-flown sounding word, which may be why it seems most likely to turn up in texts by and about politicians. In fact, when the U.S. Constitution was up for ratification, 18th-century Pennsylvania statesman James Wilson used it to calm fears that the president would have too much power: "Our first executive is not obnubilated behind the mysterious obscurity of counselors. . . . The executive power is better to be trusted when it has no screen. . . ."

Anti-Song of the Day: "I Love Rock 'n Roll" by Britney Spears. Not only did she have to decide to break into the movie business and star in a feature film (For why this is a bad thing, see my views on actors trying to become rock stars and vice versa), but she just had to go and ruin a song that was really great. Now I won't be able to listen to the *decent* version that I adore without thinking of *her* version. Blech. For that, Britney Spears is the winner of our unannounced and arbitrarily decided Frigger 'O The Week Award.
