Tuesday Word: deteriorism

Hey, your favorite director came out of retirement and is working on a new movie! Your favorite band got back together! Your favorite show has been picked up again! Great news all around!

Pssh. For you, maybe. As for me, I ascribe to deteriorism, the belief that things -- specific things or ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING -- tend to get worse over time. I love endings! Then I can rest easy in the knowledge that rather than having nowhere to go but down, there is simply nowhere to go.

But, you know, good for you. I'm sure it'll be fun..for a while.
