You needed some to restrain yourself from delivering something that another person desperately needs, but would result in a jail term for you?

Put a glass of nice cold milk in front of yourself and watch it.
Ok, cold whatever and watch it.

I will practice self control, stop babbling here and attack my phd. Aaaargh, help.

Anyways, Word of Today is bakku-shan which in Japanese means an attractive girl from the behind but ugly in front. Made me chuckle, a funny word to have for this particular concept, not that I ever thought about it much.

Re: Word of Today

"Heroically deleted..."

As in:

"The IT Admin heroically deleted the entire exchange database and its backups"

And no, I won't explain further. But the fellow IT bods here will know *exactly* what I'm talking about.

I am not an IT bod, and only know heroically self deleted

Anyways, Today's Special is

procrastination

It's biting my butt. I am studying for a major exam and cannot get through an analysis of Hitler's speeches. Kennedy was ok, Havel even better, but how to detach onself from the topic which really feeds my procrastination, ugh.

Re: Word of Today

Early meant I got stuck 4 am, waiting for trains to start running, achuuu...Time change is impractical.

Sky, your noble words are noble. Nice to see them here.

And, today's special word winner is rhwe in Tsonga language, apparently meaning to sleep naked and drunk on bare floor. Wow.

Re: Word of Today

No, nothing noble
Words to live by, if possible

Understanding is also a good one to try.
