Weekend Words

I'm back on Topamax since without it, I was having up to ten abscene seizures a day. To hell with it being a problematic drug. Sure, it made me lose 40 lbs when I only needed to lose 10 lbs and it turned me into an addicted idiot. But hey, I've been addicted before, it wasn't pretty, but I can do it again. I went up with the dosage very fast now, so I'm quite whacked out.

Methuselah - methushelah (Hebrew) A Biblical patriarch, son of Enoch and grandfather of Noah; his life-span was stated as 969 years. The patriarchs each represented a race or subrace, and the number of years, to which the necessary ciphers should be added, referred to the cycle of such a race. Each character likewise stood for a sign of the zodiac (IU 2:459-60). Further, Methuselah assisted Enoch in constructing an underground building with nine apartments, each one of which contained one of the nine names of deity -- a reference to the occult or mystical language of initiation, and of the buildings constructed for its formal rites.
