In addition to NaBloPoMo (National Blog Posting Month), I’ve decided to participate in NaNaGaMo, National Navel-Gazing Month. Every day for the month of November, I will contemplate my navel, or perhaps someone else’s navel. In a pinch, I may stare at a navel orange.
On this theme, I’d like to highlight a word with you that I met in the past year or so, and which I’ve become quite fond of:
literally, the contemplation of one’s navel, which is an idiom usually meaning complacent self-absorption (from dictionary.com)
I think it’s quite a good word. I try to use it whenever possible.
Actually, I was considering having each of my posts for the month of November feature a word that I like. (I mean, a different word that I like. Otherwise we could end up with a month of posts about pants.) (Well, that might happen anyhow.) We’ll see. I promise to, at the very least, use words in every post.
