Circe must abbreviate her words this evening. She works as procrastinating writers often do, against a deadline an hour from now.
Seeking the best word, I found “abridge,” “parse,” and “pare”, the latter of which I share here in visual thesaurus format from the thesaurus.com site. The visual thesaurus is brilliant! Sketched organic chemistry for word lovers! Check this out for fun. How or who determines which related words are nearer or farther from “pare,” at the center, & where on the 360 degrees each belongs? An algorithm or humans? http://thesaurus.com/browse/pare
Back to those alter egos. I was going to claim that I have no male alter ego, and I’m not sure I do, but perhaps posting a photo of myself as Diego Forlan belies that. (Where are diacritical marks to be found in WordPress?)
The Super Hero is taking a back seat to the Procrastinator tonight. Though left-footed, I am pleased that I did not feel any connection with Luis Suarez during the World Cup. Might too many concussions and headers be related to his appalling bigotry and behavior? Soccer (football) another day.
