friday again!

the weeks are going way too quick. either that or i'm sitting in my chair, drooling senselessly, and only come to my senses a couple of times a day, and everyone is too polite to say anything.

we got out arses kicked at soccer last night, which just figures. we had 5 subs. 2 weeks ago while i was away they had only 10 players and played great. so i said next time we've got too many i'll just stand on the sideline and get pissed. i think all the team wants the same job!

my brother has just emailed me the dictionary.com word of the day; eructation

Word of the Day for Thursday July 22, 2004

eructation \ih-ruhk-TAY-shuhn\, noun:
The act of belching; a belch.

Ignatius belched, the gassy eructations echoing between the
walls of the alley.
--John Kennedy Toole, [1]A Confederacy of Dunces

The explosion, at this distance, sounds like a faint,
feeble eructation.
--Peter Conrad, "Bangs to whimpers," [2]The Observer, March
7, 2004

Eructation comes from Latin eructatio, from eructare, from e-,
"out" + ructare, "to belch."

sounds good :-)

tomorrow i'm up to the sunny (hah - foggy more likely) valley to learn all about gas mixing, and how not to kill people, including myself, when filling oxygen enriched scuba tanks. i've got a book i'm meant to have already read, so i don't have to waste any time on theory. woops. i'll be madly swotting tonight and tomorrow morning before it starts!
