Propinquity & Gummi Bears

I'm Currently Avoiding:

Diaryland is a BITCH!

Started this diary entry at above time. Got distracted. Thought maybe I'd finish it by 3:15. Got distracted. Looked at the clock, it was 3:20. Thought maybe I'd finish it by 3:30 am. Then Diaryland deleted my entry. Thank you very much. Maybe I'll be done by 3:45, 4 am now. Damn diaryland. I could keep my word and post this in two minutes, but that would be silly. I'd have to post it with only a paragraph on it. Anyway, I think there was something else but this just drove it out of my head, so today,

February 26 is ... National Pistachio Day (just goes to prove that there are some days when everything is SUPPOSED to be nuts. And this fits great for Mondays.)

Ooooooh, I remember. I was unhappy b/c I didn't have a word of the day handy and I wasn't sure what I wanted to use for a word of the day, but...

Ha! Found one.

The Word of the Day

propinquity (n. pruh-PING-pong-ball)

1. nearness of blood : kinship

2. nearness in place or time : proximity

"Propinquity" and its cousin, "proximity," are related through the Latin root "prope," which means "near." That root gave rise to "proximus" (direct ancestor of "proximity") and "propinquitas" (grandparent of "propinquity"). "Proximus" is the superlative of "prope" and thus means "nearest," but in modern English usage "propinquity" often conveys a stronger sense of closeness than "proximity," which usually suggests an "in-the-general-vicinity" nearness. The distinctions between the two are subtle, however, and they are often used interchangeably.

I didn't really have anything particular I wanted to talk about in this entry, or interesting. In fact, other than finding out what the word propinquity meant, I'm not sure I had a purpose for writing this entry. Well, other than that and the gummi bear thing. There are new things added here. Vote in the Poll, or if you choose not to vote in the poll, e-mail me and tell me why you decided not to vote in the poll. I'd like to know what I can do to make it more interesting. Or leave a message in the guestbook or messageboard stating why you chose not to vote in the poll. Basically....I WANT FEEDBACK! I feel insecure. E-mail me and help me.

The only other thing I wanted to talk about, and this is a good thing, b/c I'd like to be finished in four minutes or less, is my odd gummi bear thing. I bought a package of gummi bears earlier tonight, and when I got near the end of the bag, there was an odd gummi bear. It's got a growth on it's left ear that looks like a santa hat without any red, since this is a white gummi bear. I was wondering what this substance is...hardened sugar perhaps? Why did this occur? Is it safe to eat this gummi bear? Do I want to eat this bear or do I want to save it as some bizarre momento? Should I worship this bear as a manifestation of the devine? Alright, enough questions, time to go.
