This list of moon-related words amuses me, not because it’s particularly earthshaking or whatever but because it simply exists — someone bothered to write it and put it up, and that’s what they did with part of their day. As 2003 settles into a grit and gracelessness that scares me, one must take whimsy where one’s fortunate enough to find it. (Translation: Yes, I’m writing the Eldred v Ashcroft piece this weekend and find myself in a condition that if you kind of squint and tilt your head could well be taken for despair. Not normal, not natural, not good, but right this minute you couldn’t shake me out of it if you showed me certified video footage of Sonny Bono burning in Hell. And I wish someone would, as it would give weight to the moral-arc-of-the-universe thing Arminda’s been quoting to cheer me up.)
