The Lazy Test
March 8th, 2002 - 3:40 a.m.I'm Currently Avoiding:
Hmm. Apparently I'm 72% lazy according to this test. I thought I was lazier than that. Oh well, I guess I'd better get my lazy butt in gear and write my other 10 pages. Okay, so you know it's going to be 9 pages, the minimum suggested. When have I ever written more than that?
katzenjammer (n. KAT-sun-jam-er)
1 : hangover
2 : distress
3 : a discordant clamor
Have you ever heard a cat wailing and felt that you could relate? Apparently some German speakers once did. Katzenjammer comes from the German Katze (meaning cat) and Jammer (meaning distress or lamentation). The word literally means wailing of cats, but it is used for a hangover or a depressed feeling. English speakers borrowed the word in the 19th century, and eventually applied it to commotion as well. The word isn't as popular in English today as it was around the mid-20th century, but it's well-known to many because of the "Katzenjammer Kids," a long-running comic strip featuring the incorrigibly mischievous twins Hans and Fritz.
Oh, and I know exactly what my thought process was, but certain people will just have to remain in ignorance until they actually talk to me to have an answer (or their package arrives...that'd probably do it too). Dum de dum...I really need to stop procrastinating now. Many things to do. Well, really only one thing to do...write my frigging paper. Blech.
