Going Back To Bed
March 22nd, 2002 - 5:30 a.m.I'm Currently Avoiding:
I've just finished coding things and my eyes hurt so exactly how much I want to write here is debateable. I believe the current estimation is somewhere between not a lot and not at all. Suddenly my room has decided that it would like me to freeze. Damn them. Maybe I'll just go back to bed and be warm there. After all, there are covers there. And covers are important. :) Aaaaahhhhhhhh...I've been seduced by the dark side into using smiley faces when I don't even smile that much in reality, and I've lost my nose in the process!
wisenheimer (n. WYE-zun-hye-mer)
: smart aleck
We wouldn't joke around about the origin of this witty word. In the early 20th century, someone had the smart idea to combine the word wise (one sense of which is an adjective meaning insolent, smart-alecky, fresh) with -enheimer, playing on the pattern of family names such as Oppenheimer and Guggenheimer. Of course, wisenheimer isn't the only wise- word for someone who jokes around. There's also wiseacre, wisecracker, and wise guy, just to name a few. And all of these jokesters are fond of making wisecracks.
Blargh. Blargh, blargh, blargh. I enjoy that word. Goodnight again...even though it's morning.
