Origin: Unknown, but wiktionary (yeah, not likely a credible source) has: Borrowed from Latin, from the verse Georgica which was written by the Roman poet Virgil which is sed fugit interea fugit irreparabile tempus (“but it flees meanwhile: irretrievable time flees”) which has the less literal translation "while, the irreplaceable time escapes".

Now YOU come up with a sentence (or fic? or graphic?) that best illustrates the word.

Awesome Monday is here!

OMG! It's another Monday already! So I got one step closer to actually creating something last week... haha! I wrote a 150 word summary of an SF orig fic idea that came to me. Then last night I thought for five whole minutes I was going to make some icons... until I remembered I hadn't done any grocery shopping and I needed to do an online shop so we'd have some food in the house come tonight!

Needless to say, by the time I got that done, I was ready to just watch TV and knit. The good news on that front is that I have managed to knit four and a half whole peggy squares for the blanket I have decided to make this winter! It hasn't been super-cold here yet, but it is cool enough for me to feel like getting out the knitting, so that's been a bit of a focus lately.

So I guess I need to try and find some time to be creatively awesome in words or graphics later this week!
