I write better when I smoke. Don’t ask me to reduce it to a science.

Exhausted

Funny things, words. Lots of words mean, at first glance, the same thing. Like want means pretty much the same thing as desire. The difference is in the degree. Where wanting is a candle flame, desire is a forest fire. Other synonyms on the other hand, differ in nuance. Like tired and exhausted. Both words mean the same thing to us, but if you look closely, you can see that tired is as close to generic as you can get for the concept of being overtaken by fatigue. But exhausted. Ah, there’s a word.

Exhausted doesn’t just mean tired. It carries the sense of being used-up: like a candle is exhausted when all the wax and the wick are gone; like how I’ve got nothing left to give to you. I’m not just bone-dead tired, I’m exhausted.

    Maceda sez Erap consulted Narvasa and others, and they told him that the 1987 Consti prohibits only the INCUMBENT prez from re-election. Former prezzies, by their definition, face no such prohibition. But in the same breath, Maceda also sez that they know an Erap candidacy will be the subject of a disqual case – but […]
  • Escalation 30 December 2008
    I still think the Pangandaman’s shouldn’t have retaliated even if dela Paz threw the first punch. But is anyone really surprised at the escalation in the story-telling on both sides? BTW, I think we can dispense with the age angle nao.
  • Etiquette 29 December 2008
    Unless you’re spoiling for a fight, assume that the writer has some basis for what she writes. Don’t make like a lawyer and ask retarded questions in an attempt to lay the foundation for whatever point you’re trying to make.
