anathemad: (Other - Anathema Scrollwork)
I often get asked why I have my username. Who is ana and why is she mad? But it is really Anathema D and they won't let me capitalize, so that is that. Except it is not. Because why Anathema D? And that is because of Anathema Device from Good Omens: The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch which really, if you have not read, you should stop doing this, and everything else and get to it!

But it is even more than that. The word, Anathema... it intrigues me. And someone I know (*waves*) got it as a vocabulary word, and got me to thinking, which, considering I should be doing Other Things is very much in the way. And so the best way to get it out of the way is to post. And I feel like I have made posts like this before, but it needs out right now.


My favorite modern definition is "One who is despised" but Dictionary.com has a bunch of other good ones. And on Podictionary he gets into some of the etymology. But if you look into it, anathema has such interesting roots. Of being something set apart as an offering to god(s). And somewhere along the line, it became tainted and changed. So yeah, I like it.

It is simply, one of my favorite words.

Do you have any?
anathemad: (GSW- for the children)
There may well be nothing more that I hate more than hearing children say they are bored. There is a variety of reasons, from the beauty of stillness, to the fact that this proves just how damn ungrateful they are for the life they live where they have time TO be bored. Hey look, you are not working in a field, scrubbing floors, chopping wood, hunting something, in a war, running for you life, whatever. And yet as I child I did it too. Most do that have the opportunity to, as soon as they learn the word. And I have had it.

So the other day we wrote a list. It started small, and grew to 50 items before we stopped for lunch. We may add more things if they get "bored" with this list too. But for the curious, this is the spring/summer activity list my 4/7 year old came up with

In case you are not BORED enough to read it )

Does anyone want??

From our bathroom remodel:
A toilet. No, really. with tank. It needs new guts, but is in good condition, it was just the wrong size.

A sink - white, only six months old before the remodel?

Baby stuff... I have kept these favorites all these years just in case we changed our minds about having another baby, but we are done, so anyone want:

Stroller - combi. Compatible with most baby carseats, with the included bar. I *loved* this stroller. Really light and easy to fold, but NOT an umbrella stroller. I have kept this all these keats just in case we changed our minds about having another baby, but we are done, so anyone want?

I also have a Maxi Cosi car seat in ok condition that has never been in an accident, just recently outgrown. This carseat also a favorite of mine because it can be reclined/sat up on the go. The lever to adjust the recline is in the front of the seat! Cover is fade from the sun, but might could be replaced.

Hrm I also have another carseat of unknown make, and unknown history that was a handmedown. I do not even know if I ever even used this or if it has just sat in my closet all these years...

Baby Tiny Love Gymini. Used half a dozen times??? Lived at grandparents house.

I had a sleep study last night. Which I would not even bother to mention, except that I learned something funny. Apparently, if you fall asleep on the arm that the has the index finger they put the oxygen sensor on, a tech comes RUNNING into the room to make sure you are not dying or whatever when your stats drop as you cut off the circulation to that arm. She looked SO panicked, as she slammed on the lights and started waking me up trying to figure out what was wrong. When we figured it out I just started giggling in my half asleep state. She looked very annoyed and informed me I COULD NOT sleep on that arm. I told her I *always* sleep on that side, mean to or not, and could we please just move the sensor to my other arm if she wanted to prevent a repeat? She blinked a couple of times like it had never occurred to her, smiled, said sure, moved it, and wandered away after turning off the lights again. It took *every* drop of self control, not to do it on purpose on the other side when I woke up later on, but I figured once in a night was enough, poor thing. That having been said? If YOU ever have a sleep study? I highly recommend trying it.
