So I saw someone with the LJ name of 'Shrift'. That got me wondering what 'shrift' really meant. I have heard it often enough in 'short shrift'.

Websters Ninth new Collegiate Dictionary says:

1: archaic a: the act of shriving : confession b: remission of sins pronounced by a priest in the sacrament of penance. 2 obs: confessional


Much makes more sense now.
