Easter? What Easter?
April 1st, 2002 - 2:24 a.m.I'm Currently Avoiding:
Decisions, decisions...fake the day so I have one more March entry since I'm going to discuss Easter in this one anyway, which was actually in March, or leave it as April, since it is technically now, and then do another entry for April Fool's Day later? Or vice versa? And if I do another one then I'll be able to create my April diary entries page that much sooner. Sounds like a good idea to me. Or a good enough idea at the very least.
I think I'll hurry up and do the Easter one now so that I can write about April Fool's Day. I definately have a fool in mind already. Easter? Bah. I didn't do anything, I slept until 5 pm and around 11:30 I went grocery shopping. I bought Crispix, which was on sale, and that pleases me. Crispix is never on sale (except it is this week), and the normal price for a 17.9 oz box of Crispix is normally $5.29 (completely ridiculous, I agree). But this week...on sale for $2.59! Whee. That's a price I can deal with. I also probably have more pasta than I need...we'll see. There's only 3 weeks left in the semester after all. That fact in and of itself frightens me. So. That's all. Maybe tomorrow I'll stop by CVS and see if they've discounted the Easter candy and if I want any of it. *happy smile* Mmm...chocolate.
hyperbole (n. hye-PER-buh-lee)
: extravagant exaggeration
In the 5th century B.C. there was a rabble-rousing
Athenian, a politician named Hyperbolus, who often made
exaggerated promises and claims that whipped people into a
frenzy. But even though it sounds appropriate, Hyperbolus's
name did not play a role in the development of the modern
English word hyperbole. That noun does come to us from Greek (by way of Latin), but from the Greek verb hyperballein, meaning to exceed, not from the name of the Athenian demagogue.
