Song of the Day: At the Drive In - Invalid Letter Department
With a full stomach of coffee I sit here in a daze waiting for the caffeine to withdrawal it's dominant grip on my quivering body. I swear it's the damn Tim Horton's Roll Up the RIM to Win promotion (check previous entries or local listings for details. No purchase necessary). I'm totally wired! Eyes are touching the screen as I type. A girl commented on how pathetic Henry and I must be because we've memorized the employees of the full-service store front at the school. I mean it's just we're always there and we see there name tags. So what! heh, it's pathetic.
Synonyms: pathetic, pitiful, pitiable, piteous, lamentable
These adjectives describe what inspires or deserves pity. Something pathetic elicits sympathetic sadness and compassion: a most earnest... entreaty, addressed to you in the most pathetic tones of the voice so dear to you (Charles Dickens). Both pitiful and pitiable apply to what is touchingly sad: She told a most pitiful story (Samuel Butler). The emperor had been in a state of pitiable vacillation (William Hickling Prescott). Sometimes these three terms connote contemptuous pity, as for what is hopelessly inept or inadequate: a school with pathetic academic standards. To be guided by second-hand conjecture is pitiful (Jane Austen). That cold accretion called the world, which, so terrible in the mass, is so unformidable, even pitiable, in its units (Thomas Hardy). Piteous applies to what cries out for pity: They... made piteous lamentation to us to save them (Daniel Defoe). Lamentable suggests the evocation of pity mixed with sorrow: Tell thou the lamentable tale of me,/And send the hearers weeping to their beds (Shakespeare).
In other news, I somehow had the urge to buy an ishuffle. I called all over the K-W tech stores like Best Buy and FutureShop to see if I could score one after work. I even drove to the Cambridge FutureShop seeing that their website indicated that they had some in stock. I called to verify, but it was a dead end. So to my surprise, the website was wrong! Being frustrated with the situation, I was activated a credit card I had stowed away for safe keeping to buy one online. Just a lil' history on my views of credit cards: they are evil! I've held out on the temptations to use credit cards because spending is made too easy. Jumping through hoops makes buying something much more painstakingly difficult and you'd want to second guess the true added value of the purchase. Someone pass me some scissors, I need to end it before my debt escalates...
