Referencentia

Few words these days make the cut in spoken language, we find them oft scattered throughout books from years in the past, lining the leafs of literature left gathering dust obscurely on shelves rarely referred to save by students and philosophers, gardeners, and oft classified fanatics of symantics. Oops guess Terre fits that description..

Here are a few recent finds we knew some from previousness but in an attempt to re-freshen the recognition of definition, we`ve decided once again to place a few of the current words.. here, there, whever the light shinies.

subsequent - Following in time or order; succeeding.
prick - hahaha funny this one has a dozen meanings.. leaving em out.
arduous - Testing severely the powers of endurance; strenuous
precocious - Manifesting or characterized by unusually early development or maturity, especially in mental aptitude.

respite - A usually short interval of rest or relief. To delay; postpone.

LEADING to... SPITE! with the prefix RE??

vacillating - To swing indecisively from one course of action or opinion to another (Nicely refers to a few people who we`ve dealth with lately)

Here We Go Again..

Sitting here earlier, typing away, calmly on subject matters of definition, Jonathon the `white butterfly`approached me with an accusation of error. Theres this little wirey thing he made to put in the drain of the kitchen sink so the silverware won`t slip in and fall down.. I saw it yesterday and asked about it as it was fall into the drain and needed to be placed more firmly, he defined it and I placed it back where it was designed to site, a circle in a cylinder.. simple enough...

Today though, it seemed as the thing was missing, Jonathon could not find it and became angry at me for having misplaced it, for making an error, a mistake, a fault.. He was standing next to me yesterday when I replaced the item!

Obvious to me, two possibilities existed,

1. the thing fell into the drain and would be found in the pipe..
2. The CAT of Jonathons, dug it out and played with it, so it would be found somewhere on the floor.

Jonathon would not listen to this, he commanded not as in french `demanded`(requested) I find the thing because it was SURELY my FAULT and my error that caused the thing to go missing, CAUSED by me. A cause de toi, TON erreur!

First, studying language and symantics and such, CAUSE begins at the beginning, being the initial existence of the thing stemming from him, the loss also is caused by his bringing the thing into existence.

Second, PROVE IT! It`s missing, I put it where it was supposed to go and did not go there since then, if it is missing, and I put it THERE, then it is not missing because of me.

Third, HE WANTS the thing, he WANTS TO FIND the thing, it`s HIS want that defines his determination to find the thing and thus it`s his desire that ought have HIM looking for the thing until he finds it.

At this time, none of this made any sense to him, he was one tracked in his insistence that the thing somehow became MY responsibility after I touched it and thus it was NOW my affair to find it. He even began referrig to history of events which he somehow made up for other errors I made, mistakes from the past which were also relatively similar in example.

In Jonathons philosophy everyone else is responsible for everyone elses wants and desires, so they can be commanded to do, find, look for, replace and pretty much anything else justified by a personal desire of the commander, the FORCE of RIGHTEOUSNESS, deluded by ASSUMPTION.

Well, not wanting to be privy to the ass he was trying to make out of the both of us, I took leave of the house, went to the cabin, pulled out a french dictionary and began surfing through the definitions of things such as DESIRE.

(DE)sire - sire is a parental word and de is a pass-off prefix. In other words, the importance and determination was his parental control over the ego attachment to the item. The desiring of it caused him to un sire the responsibility of the searching and hand it off to me. Another way to phrase this less politically correct one could say.. is, the poor boy couln`t find what he was looking for, GOT LAZY and decided to ask someone else to find it for him, but because ASKING is a nicety, BLAME and ERROR had to be brought into the equation to lend him a measure of FORCE.

So, after digging through the definitions, I came back, had a nice philosophical descussionb with Jean in `his` cabin and even though at that point even Jean was STILL convinced I was in error.. I stated that because I RESPECT the THING, I`ll go take apart the plumbing and see if it fell in.

RE SPECT. Anyone guess where I found the thing? On the floor, right out in the open, obvikously after having been pushed around by a cat.

Did the cat error? Was the Cat responsible? Whatever.

Jean, immediately apologized, this was a simple thing for him, he knows that all the argueing and finger pointing and stuff was for naught.

Jonathon though, actually dug in and fortified his defense, it appears that I was still the fault, because I did not place the thing into the drain as HE would have, somehow in a way the cat could never have gotten it out, which is bull, since the cat is still perfectly capable with its claws and paws of pulling the little flimsy thing out. Jon would not apologize. Assumer.

So, here we have it, I gave him a little ultimatum, if he thinks he has some right to command me, demand of me to do stuff for his will and wiles sometime in the future he`s gonna get a bunched right hand in the nose.

It was on the floor and took me all of ten seconds to find.. Who made an error?
