Word For The Day, Monday, 6/29/09
In order that we might all raise the level of discourse and expand our language abilities, here is the daily post of "Word for the Day".
1. utterly unyielding or firm in attitude or opinion. Unyielding; inflexible: "If there is one dominant trait that emerges from this account, it is adamantine willpower" (Eugene Linden). 2. too hard to cut, break, or pierce. 3. like a diamond in luster.
Etymology:12001250; ME < L adamantinus < Gk adamántinos. See adamant, -ine 1
Rules: Everyone must leave a post using the Word for the Day in a sentence.
The sentence must, in some way, relate to the news of the day.
The Review threads are linked for your edification. ;-)
Practice makes perfect.....post on....
Here is my example with WFTD.
I hope the Republicans are sufficiently prepared to take on the adamantine dems in re obams care.

No pushing at the door please!
I thought that was a counter top material.
And, yes, I flew on USAir over the weekend, but I did not drop dead several hours later.
or pretending you’re al green. A+++ in first with the pop culture reference! are you home from MA?
i heard billy mays died and was on a problematic flight but haven’t read anything. xshub said something about him getting his head bumped and i wondered if it was a natasha richardson type situation?
Were you going to ping, or just let us figure it out on our own?
heard this on the way in this AM. dang, they don't write 'em like that anymore!
i was having some one on one tutoring time with the soother, sorry i forgot to ping!
It’s possible that Billy Mays did not have an adamantine head.
i know! poor dead thing that he is. A++
Prepared dinner for the homeless yesterday evening. Five of us from the Church went to the local shelter and served ham w. pineapple, macaroni shells with cheese, green beans and banana pudding. Served over 100.
Yeah, I’m home. Awful lot of hippies up there. Prius-drivers. A “Solar store” and a place called “All About Beads.”
Mays got bumped on the noggin by some carry-on luggage during a rough landing. Didn’t feel too well and went to sleep. Woke up dead.
Not to cast asparagus or anything, but I know if I took a bump to the head, my wife wouldn’t let me go to sleep unitl we got it checked out.
“She’s tidied up and I can’t FIND anything!”
hiya long time no C!
Michael Jackson was adamantine that he had never sexually abused the adamant teen who accused him of such behavior. Jackson did give the kid more than ten million dollars in a settlement, but would not admit any culpability. The late King of Pop paid the kid all of that money “just to make the whole thing go away.” Riiiight!
A+++ on the billy mays head.
good on you for the homeless food prep. xsboy will be back to the campus kitchen, they have a homeless shelter onsite at Gonzaga.
I'm not shocked.
i discussed this with xsbrownie and xshub just last night saying that was probably what it was, and how any boinging of the old beaner needs to be checked out.
love that song!
0bama is adamantine in his devotion to commie-ism.
My ex is completely adamantine in her nastiness. UGH.
we will no doubt be regaled with further stories of perversion in the coming days. A+++ i was grossed out to hear he weighed only 112 lbs at death and was bald except for peachfuzz and was riddled with needlemarks. horrifying mental imagery there.
It’s poetry in motion.
How’s it goin? Decided I’d better show back up since I’m staying in such a froth about the rapid decline of our country.
yeah saw that, it does make sense given what he was doing to himself.
A+++ both will get their just desserts eventually.
i knew our sciencey geeks would love that song and be very familiar with it!
oh LE, it’s horrible isn’t it? i was with a group of women friends on Friday and everyone was feeling the same way. it’s hard to know what to do about it.
Being an adamantine is a complication of puberty.
Or maybe I slept too much in my developmental psychology class.
nice jewel A+++
isn’t it just really a fancy word for HARD HEADED?
And Dolby, of course, played the keyboards on Foreigner 4 as well.
didn’t know that.
Didn’t remember it either, cause I told you last time the subject came up. ;-)
Been congressing with the landscapers again?
Really? Interesting trivia! Loved that album.
not retention-worthy. i have a lot of stuff that needs to be retained in my brain and as one ages, the unnecessary gets tossed overboard fairly immediately. i may not remember it again tomorrow!
Plus, you delegate that stuff. ;-)
And, apparently also on Def Leppard’s Pyromania. Not that I remember any keys on that album.
Heard this one, title track, on the way to go fishing before work this morning:
My mom would wig out at the recent sissification of the nursing profession. She got her start while still in school, during the polio epidemic, and worked 7-12 hour shifts a week for many months. You just do what you have to do.
I don’t know if it’s “sissified” to not want to be forced to work overtime all of the time.
