E-mails Proliferate Themselves & Vex Me

March 24th, 2002 - 6:58 a.m.

I'm Currently Avoiding:

You know...it really bothers me when I end up subscribed to lists/sites that I don't recall ever visiting in my life. The whole point of a lot of what I've been doing lately is designed to STOP having to read 8,000 e-mails a day to 5 different addresses. So when I get a message that says "Greetings" and is about my new subscription to something I've never heard of and didn't give my e-mail address for, it vexes me greatly. They definately need to stop doing that. And why does it take eons to unsubscribe to something that you were signed up for in less than a minute? What kind of crap is that?

parochial (adj. puh-ROH-kee-ul)

1 : of or relating to a church parish

2 : of or relating to a parish as a unit of local government

3 : confined or restricted as if within the borders of a parish : limited in range or scope (as to a narrow area or region) : provincial, narrow

In the Greek New Testament, the word paroikia means temporary residence. (It's from the Greek word for stranger -- paroikos.) Early Christians used this designation for their colonies, because they considered heaven their real home. But temporary or not, these Christian colonies became more organized as time went on. Thus, in Late Latin, parochia became the designation for a group of Christians in a given area under the leadership of one pastor -- what we came to call a parish in the 14th century. Both parish and its related adjective parochial were borrowed at that time directly from Middle French terms that had been derived from the Late Latin. We didn't begin to use parochial in its extended figurative senses until the mid-19th century.

domicile (n. DAH-muh-syle or DOH-muh-syle)

: a dwelling place : place of residence : home

A domicile is home sweet home, and it has been since at least the 15th century. In the eyes of the law, a domicile can also be a legal residence, the address from which one registers to vote, licenses a car, and pays income tax. Wealthy people may have several homes in which they live at different times of the year, but only one of their homes can be their official domicile for all legal purposes. The term for both the legal and sentimental varieties of domicile traces to the Latin domus, meaning home.

stygian (adj. STIH-jee-un or STIH-jun)

1 : of or relating to the river Styx

2 : extremely dark, gloomy, or forbidding

Stygian comes from the name of the River Styx in Hades, the Greek underworld of the dead. The name Styx comes from an ancient Greek word that denotes both hatred and cold, indicating a loathing of death. In the epics of Homer, the gods swore by the River Styx as their most binding oath. The ancients believed that the water of the Styx was poisonous, and would dissolve any vessel except one made of the hoof of a horse or a donkey. Now we use stygian to describe things dim and dreary.

Exciting and interesting things happened in my life this past evening. I'd write all about it, but I'm tired now that it's nearly 8 am and I've turned off the tv, leaving a vacuum of silence in its wake. So I guess I'll just tell you about it later...or not at all.
