omphaloskepsis

pronunciation:  ohm-fuh-loh-skep-sis

definition:  The contemplation of one's navel as part of a mystical exercise; an idiom meaning complacent self-absorption

Who knew there's a word for staring at your bellybutton?  As for mystical exercise, it's no mystery that lack of exercise is one reason it's been 7 years since I've seen my bellybutton, much less contemplate it.
