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!
