About Me

My photo
By day I'm a propeller-head geek. I design software for electronic components for a major automotive supplier. When I'm not earning a paycheck, I enjoy playing music -- primarily jazz and classical but I dabble in other genres as well. I also compose, arrange, and play with electronic gadgets and toys. My other hobbies include photography, colored pencil drawing, genealogy, model railroading, and crosswords.

House of Leaves

I've gotten tied up in reading House of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski. What an incredible work of literature! I'm about 3/4 of the way through and I'm thinking I'll have to re-read it immediately to get the full effect; there are so many mysteries.

Anyway, the vocabulary in HoL has been challenging me. Here's a few new words I've learned:
  • sabin
  • aphonia
  • scarification
  • tenebrific
  • tessellated
  • celerity
  • phillumenist
  • prolix
  • exegesis
Go loook them up if you don't already know their meanings.
