[noun / sahy-koh-si-man-tik]
i. A pathological obsession with meaning
ii. A physical condition which occurs when a writer, academic or researcher has an extended period of time in which to write. Symptoms often involve an overwhelming urge to visit http://badwinona.tumblr.com, clear out a wardrobe or sock drawer, phone one’s parents or watch Grey’s Anatomy. More acute cases can involve a splitting headache which precludes all reading and writing or extreme lethargy [see also academic narcolepsy].
