A.Word.A.Daywith Anu Garg
noun: A long, tedious account.
From Yiddish megile (scroll), from Hebrew megillah, from galal (to roll). The term alludes to the length of the text in the Book of Esther which is read in its entirety, twice, during Purim, a Jewish festival.
"But the obvious challenge was to go through the whole megillah -- to
begin with the Andante in C Major, which Mozart wrote when he was five,
and proceed to the bitter end, the Requiem."
We are so accustomed to disguise ourselves to others that in the end we become disguised to ourselves. -Francois, duc de La Rochefoucauld, moralist (1613-1680)
