words of the day - scud & agon

scud (skud) verb intr.

1. To run or move swiftly.
2. In nautical parlance, to run before a gale with little or no sail set.


1. The act of scudding.
2. Clouds, rain, mist, etc. driven by the wind.
3. Low clouds beneath another cloud layer.

Uncertain origin, possibly from Middle Low German schudden, to shake.

agon \AH-gahn; ah-GOHN\,
plural agones \uh-GOH-neez\ noun:

A struggle or contest; conflict; especially between the protagonist and antagonist in a literary work.

Agon comes from Greek agon, "a struggle or contest." It is related to agony.

I prefer to scud around the multiple LJ agones that seem to pop up like mushrooms after a rainstorm.

I'm reading my entries from this time last year.

I was good! These days, there's not enough desire to write. Seeds aren't being planted as much.

how to fix it ? I don't know... but I'll go through my notebooks, and see if I can't polish some old pebbles in the meantime. I think part is just getting into the habit.

Oh... it looks like Wally is surely fired, and that the police will be waiting for him at the port he comes in from vacation... mail fraud, misrepresentation of federal documents, embezzelment...

Looks like the chain gang for him! Time for him to bone up on his spirituals, rock breakin', and hope for minimal unwanted anal intercourse.

In more positive news -

I'm having Thai food tonight, in the name of the woman I love. *stands proudly and tall* I'm going to try a new local place that I've never tried before, once I make it to the house. Some spring rolls in pinapple sauce...and something spicy. not sure what yet, but I'm in the mood for something with zip... I like it pretty hot.(They have a vegan version of Pad Thai available... maybe I'll do that, or some tofu yummies). I'm going to make hot Chai tea tonight, too.

Glutton powers, activate!

I've got a little while to think about it... looks like I have another half-hour's worth of work to do here.

At the Thai restaurant I order my dish at "level 3" spiciness (out of 4 possible levels). I've grown so accustomed to the watered-down tingling that passes for spicy in most of the Thai places around here that generally I just go for the spiciest food they have, and I'm only hedging my bets at this place on the off chance that they serve "real" Thai, in which case the maximum spiciness might be a bit much.

I obviously don't have the first clue what "real" Thai food is. Level 3 is like eating a live Portuguese man-o-war. Normally, I can be munching on level 4 like it was frikkin' toast.

Thank goodness for side dishes! spring rolls... yumma-lumma

red curry tofu....


level 2 next time. *fans mouth*

My gosh... was my everway group a year ago already? I've also officially been on the noon-8 shift a year now.

My everway Character. My favorite diceless roleplay game. You get cards with pictures on them, and you use them to resolve any issues... a neat idea.

Hmm... newtcam froze at about 5:45 tonight, and my ftp password is being blocked... I'll have to call dave in the morning.

And so, may evil beware and may good dress warmly and eat lots of fresh vegetables.

Be CAREFUL, the next time someone tells you you're full of crap, they may be right. It is estimated that the average person has between 3 and 8 undigested meals in his or her colon at any given time.

the bottle!! - Not my kind of superhero... but maybe the kind I'd be.


Last but not least --

Aint It Cool News has a report on an upcoming flick titled Bubba Ho Tep. Elvis and JFK, neither of whom are really dead, team up to battle a redneck mummy who's stealing the life force from nursing home patients. As if this alone weren't tabloid-riffic, the Great One himself -- Bruce Campbell -- is playing a jumpsuited, 70s-style Elvis!
