Anybody Want to Give Me $1500?

February 21st, 2002 - 1:31 a.m.

I'm Currently Avoiding:

*sigh* Well, that factory restore thing had issues and now there are certain things I can't do with my computer and this annoys me, so I think I'll be using the emergency restore disk again. Stupid bloody thing. So I'll be gone for a day or maybe less, depending on what I'm doing. I'm really not enjoying it at all. Oh well. I went out to eat tonight. I said I would and I did. It was nice. I'm very tired now though. Oh, I had manicotti and peach sorbet for desert. The peach sorbet was very interesting...it came inside a frozen peach that was sitting inside a martini glass. It was very cool. Good sorbet too. I was pleased. Maybe not $6 pleased, but pleased nonetheless. I don't know if the manicotti was $13 worth of pleased either. But I'm tired now. Tired of many, many things. Maybe things will look better in 5 or 6 hours when I get up and do some work. On second thought, the idea of work doesn't make it any more pleasant.

Demeaning the Concept of Demean

demean (v. dih-MEENverb)

: to conduct or behave (oneself) usually in a proper manner

There are two words spelled demean in English. The more familiar demean -- to lower in character, status, or

reputation -- comes straight from mean, the adjective that means spiteful. Today's featured word, on the other hand, comes from the Middle French verb demener (to conduct), which in turn comes from Latin minare, meaning to drive. This verb has been with us since the 14th century and is generally used in contexts specifying a type of behavior: he demeaned himself in a most unfriendly manner; she demeaned herself as befitting her station in life; they knew not how to demean themselves in the king's presence. As you may have already guessed, the noun demeanor, meaning behavior, comes from this demean.

Yeah, I'ma go now. Maybe my idiotic computer will feel a little more cooperative the next time I write here. Of course, I'll probably be busy downloading things because it won't be the same windows, it'll be the other restored windows settings. What fun. Anybody want to give me $1500 for a really nice Sony Vaio? Or how about $1100 for a fairly decent Toshiba? I'd take almost anything as long as it's enough for a decent laptop that isn't a Compaq.
