From the SF Gate Morning Fix, a word from Mark Morford:

== THE DAILY WORD ==
It's almost like learning something

sedulous \'se-je-les\ adjective [L sedulus, fr. sedulo sincerely,
diligently, fr. se without + dolus guile] (1540) 1) Involving or
accomplished with careful perseverance 2) Diligent in application or
pursuit sedulously - adverb; sedulousness - noun

Usage example: Methodical and determined and remarkably sedulous for
someone so heavily medicated and whose blood actually consists of
cleaning solvents and Roundup herbicide and old bongwater, Lynne Cheney
went about her morning ritual of kneeling before the rat-altar and
slowly, painstakingly anointing herself with gunpowder and Jell-O
pudding pops and whatever the hell that Dow chemical stuff is that Dick
uses to maintain the illusion that he's actually alive.
----
I couldn't have said it better myself.
