Wasting Hours Upon Hours...
February 27, 2002 - 3:33 p.m.I'm Currently Avoiding:
Ooooh. I'm updating in the afternoon. Whee. Or something. Probably or something. I was busy being asleep last night so I didn't update when I normally do. And then, after sleeping for roughly 10 hours, at 8:45 this morning, something occurred. Apartment maintenance came in to do something or other to my closet. I don't know what they wanted to do with it, but it would've been nice if they would've done it later in the day. I had some other thing(s) to mention but I don't remember them anymore. I guess I should've updated last night when I had them in my head. Just goes to show you that writing things down (or some notes at least) when you think of them is a good idea.
hiatus (n. hye-AY-tuss)
1 : a break in or as if in a material object : gap
2 : an interruption in time or continuity : break
Hiatus comes from hiare, a Latin verb meaning to gape or to yawn. It entered English in the mid-1500s. Originally, a hiatus was a gaping opening in something, such as a cave opening in a cliff. Occasionally, it has been used to describe holes in clothing, as when Laurence Stern wrote in _Tristram Shandy_ of "the hiatus in Phutatorius's breeches." These days, hiatus is usually used in a temporal sense -- for a pause or interruption.
In other news, this week is looking up, next week is looking to be lousy. Whee. There are times when procrastination is *not* recommended. Next week will be one of them so who knows if I'll be updating this thing then. Twenty-two pages to write next week...and all of it not on anything fun. I'm especially *not* looking forward to the 5-7 page close reading. I loathe close readings. That's the whole point of being a comparativist. Ugh. Well, look on the bright side...oh wait, there isn't one. Never mind then. Hey, U2 rocks and aren't the Grammys tonight? Maybe I'll just waste hours upon hours of my life listening to those then. Blargh. I'm going away now. No wonder why I don't ever update in the afternoon.
