From David Foster Wallace:
Goran Ivanisevic is large and tan and surprisingly good-looking—at least for a Croat; I always imagine Croats looking ravaged and katexic and like somebody out of a Munch lithograph—except for an incongruous and wholly absurd bowl haircut that makes him look like somebody in a Beatles tribute band.
From a reader:
From the OED:
Katexoken – “Pre-eminently, ‘par excellence’.”
From Sigmund Freud:
This investment of energy in an object, idea, or person is known as cathexis.
