      Maybe elliptic rather than circular. Plus whether something is a disaster or not could be hyperbolic.

      A hyperbolic ellipse... a parabolic parable ... or a pessimistic assessment of human ambition.

      Also, I had no idea what a "status update" is - still don't, actually - or what its function. I just like pithy reversals of popular platitudes.
