Yeah, this is Soo not going to be a long entry. Why? Because I only have an hour to write this and I have other things I'd like to read instead of writing this so this is going to be a rush job.
Oh hell, I might make it another one of those two-day, one entry deals and forget about writing this before 9 am. It's too bloody early as it is anyway. We'll just have to see I guess. Today,
June 12 is ........ Machine Day (Hmm...this seems entirely too appropriate today. Why? I'm not telling...you'll just have to wonder about it for the rest of your life and I hope it irritates you and drives you completely nuts.)
Babble, babble, babble...oh wait, I don't feel like babbling at the moment, so just [INSERT RATHER INSANE BABBLING HERE]
misconstrue (v. miss-kanga-ROO)
: to understand or explain wrongly : misinterpret
In the 14th century, English speakers acquired two words that are closely linked: construe and construction. You may think of construction as a word having to do with building houses or highways, but it has long had other meanings too, including "the arrangement of words in a sentence" and "interpretation." Similarly, construe can mean to analyze the arrangement and connection of words in a sentence or to interpret or explain. Both construe and construction (as well as the verb construct, a 17th-century addition to English) come from the Latin verb construere (to construct or construe). The mis- of misconstrue was an English addition; it was added to construe in the 14th century to create a word meaning "to mistake the meaning of."
If I hear one more friggin word about Timothy McVeigh, I swear, I'm going to SCREAM! He's dead, no more punishment is possible, GET The FRIG Over It already! It's not like anyone's doing anything constructive by going on and on and ON about it in the news...unless you consider pissing me off constructive.
I was going to do some witty thing with the quotes, but I just can't seem to care. And they all work fairly well as they are anyway. I suppose I could put some sort of commentary after it...maybe. Yeah, I guess that sounds doable. Why do things like this always have to happen to me? (Things in parentheses are my little thoughts, and then comes who said it after that.)
A synonym is a word you use when you can't spell the word you first thought of. (Damn Skippy.)
I am returning this otherwise good typing paper to you because someone has printed gibberish all over it and put your name at the top. (Ha. Good idea.)

Republicans understand the importance of bondage between a mother and child. (Quayle really nailed that one, didn't he? Especially for Bush, Jr. Maybe they need to go on Springer though...)
