Demonomania

DEMONOMANIA, n. A condition of the mind in which the patient fondly imagines himself acting under the authority of the devil, and is just too proud for anything.

2009 Update: A psychiatric condition which causes in the sufferer the delusion of external control by infernal agents, rather than by self-delusion.  See also CALVINISM, POPULISM.

You act as if it's a bad thing.

DEMONOMANIA: More fun than a human being should be allowed to have.

As in "The devil made me do it"

DEMONOMANIA: A condition politicians and artists use as an excuse...or so I have been told.

Demonomania: The overwhelming desire to eat souls.

Willie's place of birth was Macon. He's a good, southern doggie. I bet he's very polite.

TLP, who is Robert Pattison?

Mo'a, politicians are more likely to use the excuse that heaven sent them with specific instructions.

Jim, Adi can defend you.

JD, he's a perfect little gentleman. Walela's a hillbilly from the Blue Ridge Mountains, but with airs.

The voices in my head told me not to comment on this.

Doug is confused. Walela is no Blue Ridge hillbilly. She is Queen of the Wolves and sips the blood-dimmed tide.

Quilly, I'm sure Amoeba is glad you're still not listening to them either.

Right you are, Karen, and welcome. You're the second of your tribe to ever leave a comment here.

Bear, before you lost the tooth, which planet did you hear?

TLP, I googled in the meanwhile. Cedric Digory, really?

Pop, even born to royalty that dog's above her raising.

I'm having a slow morning. Actually, I'm procrastinating because of something dreadfully technical concerning my Web site.

Anyhow, for some unknown reason, I was reminded of a blog named "Tzimiskes" this morning.

I understand you'll be promoted in your government job to a Los Angeles County precinct inspector for the June 4, 2010 California primary.

Congratulations. I'm sure you'll excel in your new position.
