I bequeath the world a neologism, because there is need:

Te·di·a [tee-dee-uh]
1. a plural of tedium.
2. the quality or state of multiple media being wearisome; irksome; tedious.
3. the quality or state of overwhelming tedium resulting from multiple, unrelated sources.

Overcome by the tedia of so-called “news” coverage and inane blather that displaced any real information, she resorted to drawing political cartoons and posting them on the Web.

Lacking sufficient mental stimulation from either of his jobs, and commuting without a working radio, he found himself daydreaming and telling himself jokes to allay the suffocating tedia.

    Having just discovered your very non-tedious blog I’m intending to quote extensively from it in today’s 3D Eye. Hope this is OK with you.

    That’s the problem with keeping your friends close, but your ennuis closer ;-)

    If you are suffering from tedia, then perhaps also you could be boreds with it all.
