Well. Let's start this a 4th time then. I'm getting tired of having to start this entry over and over again. I should type it faster. I started this entry originally around 9ish yesterday night (the 25th!), then my computer froze. Then I started another one around 11:30 that same evening and then I put it off and put it off and I only had one sentence at 5 or 6 am when I was tired, so I closed all the windows and ran scandisk while I went to bed. So then at around 9:30 or so this evening I thought I'd give it a third try. Then apparently around 1:15 in the morning, my computer decided to freeze again. So I had to shut it off and now this is the fourth try. I swear, if I end up having to start this one more time I'm going to abandon this diary altogether and scream in frustation. Or something. Nah, that was a huge exaggeration.
zenith (n. ZEE-nuth or ZEH-nuth)
1 : the point of the celestial sphere that is directly opposite the nadir and vertically above the observer
2 : the highest point reached in the heavens by a celestial body
3 : culminating point : acme
When you reach the zenith, you're at the top, the pinnacle, the summit, the peak. Zenith developed from Arabic terms meaning the way over one's head. As long ago as the 1300s, English speakers used zenith to name the highest point in the celestial heavens, directly overhead. By the 1600s, zenith was being used in English for other high points as well.
I'd better post this really, really soon, since I don't want to end up having to do this diary entry any more and stuff. So I just want to know...what's up with "self-propelled vacuum cleaners"? I mean, they aren't exactly self-propelled. You still have to push them after all. It's not like they're remote-controlled vacuum cleaners that you don't have to touch. They don't vacuum the room by itself. You still have to touch it and propell it...it's just easier to do so. Just because it has wheels doesn't mean it's self-propelled. By the definition of having wheels, wheeled luggage is "self-propelled." I don't know how to explain my irritation with that phrase. I guess I'll believe that a vacuum cleaner is self-propelled when it's got a computer chip in it and you just program it to clean the apartment and you don't have to touch the dumb thing other than to push "start," if that.
