omphaloskepsis

i learned a good word yesterday. one which might be said to apply to me. perhaps even to this blog!

omphaloskepsis - contemplating one’s navel as an aid to meditation.

my co-worker dana used it as an example of words she likes to use that she knows no one else knows, and that will irritate her husband when she uses it.

we were talking with another co-worker about some folks at sas who use language as a way of doing battle and belittling others.
