Yikes, think of the characters in "The Hand the Rocks the Cradle", "Disclosure", "Misery" and "Fatal Attraction", and you've got a winner!

The things that made me happy today.

That someone was sincere and put their thoughts into words which brought tears to my eyes and that my words in return did the same. It's a nice world when you can spread joy, kindness and love.

And also that I work my ass off to do my best and deal with a hell of lot of daily stress. But I have to do it because it pays the bills, it's like writing a poem that gives you the chills. And now I'm tired, I've been up since 3:00, I've had one to many drinks and now I have to take a pee..

I was told, I must have a lot of time on my hands, because I'm always here in TC land. Well that might be true and that's OK, cause it pulls me through another stressful day.

So, I'm signing off now, but I'll be back. Just to piss you off and that's a fact. OK, now I'm getting silly and the house in getting chilly, I'm going to bed to snuggle instead.. Night night,

Ooh...those are really cool!!

What made me happy this week...I moved into a new house about a month ago, and I just realized that the neighbors have a lime tree that hangs over into my backyard! Free limes! Now if only they had a rum tree...

I don't know if it necessarily made me "happy", but something did happen today that gave me a bit of amusement. The fact that it gave me some excitement might be a sad commentary on my boring life!

Sometimes when I am writing legal briefs (I'm an attorney) I come up with a word that I am not sure is an actual word, or if its something I just completely made up. A little while ago I was writing a sentence and needed a word that basically means “to point out the basis for something” or “to provide an explanation.” The word that immediately popped into my head was “elucidate.” I don’t remember ever reading or hearing that word before but, nevertheless, it just popped into my head as being a word that would be appropriate.

However, because I had no idea whether I had just made up that word or if it was a real word, (or even if it was a real word, whether it meant what I thought it meant), I looked the word up on the Merriam-Webster online dictionary (as I often do when I pull words out of my ass).

The definition is as follows:

elucidate
One entry found.

Main Entry:
elu•ci•date
Pronunciation:
\i-ˈlü-sə-ˌdât\
Function:
verb
Inflected Form(s):
elu•ci•dat•ed; elu•ci•dat•ing
Etymology:
Late Latin elucidatus, past participle of elucidare, from Latin e- + lucidus lucid
Date:
circa 1568
transitive verb : to make lucid especially by explanation or analysis <elucidate a text> intransitive verb : to give a clarifying explanation


The sentence I wrote in my brief reads as follows:

“In his motion Defendant does not elucidate the basis for his contenion that...”


I surprise myself sometimes! I guess I'm not as much of a dumbass as my wife thinks I am!
