Cathected
1. Charged with mental or emotional energy

I found it in a post on Bitch Ph.D" about mothering.

Here's the original sentence:
"My point, partly, is that there are a lot of really great books lately about how mothering is cathected with these expectations of perfection, more-so now than ever before, and how that is damaging."

I find it particularly amusing to find a word I've never heard of today. Last night at the bookstore, as we were leaving, other-me found a book with 100 words to learn in order to have a good vocabulary. I wish I remembered the title, it was rather smarmy. She flipped open the book and read one, I defined it, and another, and another. This was repeated until we got bored. Though some of the definitions were decidedly non-standard; they got the point across. For example urgent got defined as "problematic, right now." It's not a book I feel any obligation to buy, but it was fun to flip through. I even mostly agree with it. For those looking to expand their vocabulary, the editors made some good choices about what words would actually enrich their conversation and comprehension.
