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*
