Evening all!

Omphaloskepsis [om-fe-lo-skep'sis]
Noun

Navel-gazing. To refer to a sort of introspective self-analysis.

Etymology:
Greek, from omphalos 'navel' and skepsis 'query,' 'doubt.'

Usage:
Harry's wife told him one day he should sit and comtemplate his life, and how he really needed to get into shape and cut back the beer. After a few hours of doing just that, Harry decided that grab a beer and play Mario Kart. Afterall, all that omphaloskepsis had to count for stomach crunches somehow!


Speaking of Mario Kart, anyone else play?
