One Thing After Another Lately...

February 20th, 2002 - 5:32 a.m.

I'm Currently Avoiding:

I'm so mad I could spit a steady stream of explicatives for quite awhile. It's just been one thing after another lately. Last Tuesday I had a migraine. Then it stopped being a migraine and was just a low-level, constantly *there* headache for about 3 days, until early in the morning on Friday. It was a wonderous relief when it finally left. I hadn't realized what a burden even a small headache could be when it goes on for so long. Then, after or somewhere in the middle of that, there was the whole website fiasco. And then that was resolved...Monday I believe, which is also the day I had a paper due (2 really), and then today...Oh, today (Tues. evening/Wed. morning) has just been really fucking lovely. My computer froze and then when I restarted it again, it refused to do so properly, saying that there was some error in line three of the configuration file and that in addition to that some file necessary to run Windows had gone missing and could I re-install Windows? So I had to get out the emergency restore disk and erase everything to restall everything fresh. It's the last damn straw. It's just.... AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Frig.

A Nimiety of Problems

nimiety (n. nih-MY-uh-tee)

: excess, redundancy

There's no scarcity of English words used for too much of a good thing -- words like overkill, plethora, superfluity, surfeit, surplus, and preponderance. In fact, you might just feel that nimiety itself is a bit superfluous. And it's true -- we've never used the word excessively, though it has been part of our language for nearly 450 years. (We borrowed it from Late Latin nimietas, a noun taken, in turn, from the Latin adjective nimius, meaning excessive.) But superfluous or not, nimietystill turns up occasionally. For example, in his 1991 book _Biblioholism: The Literary Addiction_, about "the habitual longing to purchase, read, store, admire and consume books in excess," author Tom Raabe blames one bookstore's "nimiety of overstuffed chairs" for exacerbating this condition.

kindred (adj. KIN-drud)

1 : of a similar nature or character : like

2 : of the same ancestry

If you believe that advice and relatives are inseparable, the etymology of kindred will prove you right. Kindred comes from a combination of kin and the Old English word raeden (condition), which itself comes from the verb raedan, meaning to advise. Kindred entered English as a noun first, in the 12th century. That noun, which can refer to a group of related individuals or to one's own relatives, gave rise to the adjective kindred in the 14th century.

So since I'm so ticked off, I'm going out to dinner tomorrow/tonight. Because after the evening I've had I damn well deserve it.
