Free Rice has me talking like Nabokov
Most recently, the drowsy little corners of even my dreariest days have been rendered with a curious clarity, pellucid, purged of the umber murk that used to cloud them.

How about you?

they make my temples throb with abominable pain-but I have braved it and pored endlessly, with a commentator's infinite patience and disgust, over the crippled syllables in your post to find the least allusion to relevant circumstances.

Not one hint did I find. Not the reference to Free Rice, nor your own imagined hysteria express anything here that might be construed as having some bearing on the circumstances of the free exchange of debauchery that is the DU Lounge.
