Why Not Refrain?

I'm Currently Avoiding:

Oh Crap. It's March? When did that happen. Oh wait, it happened 1 hour and 41 minutes ago. Good grief. Damn March & Midterms for existing and starting with M. You know, I'd make this longer, or more coherent or something, but I don't feel like it. I'll update again later and use this as the March placeholder for the older entries, not that anybody cares.

conventicle (n. kun-VEN-tih-kul)

1 : assembly, meeting

2 : an assembly of an irregular or unlawful character

3 : an assembly for religious worship; especially : a secret meeting for worship not sanctioned by law

Conventicle comes to us from the Latin conventiculum, the diminutive of conventus, meaning assembly. Conventus (which also gave English the word convent) is itself derived from the Latin word convenire, meaning to come together. The Latin conventiculum meant place of assembly (it was applied in particular to Roman Christian meetinghouses) or simply assembly. The English conventicle originally had the simple assembly meaning. It then developed an application to illegal meetings, which in turn led to the arrival of a sense describing secret meetings for worship in a religion proscribed by law. And finally, conventicle developed a fourth sense of meetinghouse, echoing the earlier use of conventiculum.

Okay...I am so not digging the "VH1 Soul" or whatever they've got on at the moment. Why is that Mary J. Blige song called "Family Affair"? Why don't all song titles have something to do with the refrain? You're supposed to make it easy for me to remember the titles damnit! She's got a really interesting wig on there. The black/white/grey/silver thing in that style looks really nice. Not on me, but just on general principles.
