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....
oh ok, that makes sense.
the wise latina’s adamantine idiocy was overturned! LOL
I want that bee!!!
We’ve had an infestation of bees in the back of the house where the master bedroom is and the bathroom juts out. They arrived early Thursday, just about 15 of them climbing the wall. When we got back from my back doc, there were no less than 2000 of them. Cyber got photos, which of course I don’t know how to post.
We called the City and the City said they were just taking a rest. Today we call a bee keeper. I don’t want to kill them because lotsa people do, and bees keep our fruit and veges and flowers growing. We have no flowers or anything but trees in the backyard. I had everything pulled out because I want to redo the yard. So they’re not getting any food from us for their Queen. I have never seen anything like it in my entire life.
If there ever was a word MADE for my dear Letaka, adamantine was it.
so how soon before theOne pulls her nomination?
After the cold winter we had, I’m not gonna complain about the heat. This Bama girl can’t handle temps below 50.
the arrest report was amusing!
I’d be happy to have 50 degrees all year long right now...
oh she won’t be pulled. she will make it on there, no prob.
Your profile page is absolutely hysterical, unfortunately, a lot of it is true.
Could be territorial between unions, or could be the unions know which companies are not union.
In a union state, not all companies must have unions, but if they do, then all workers must join. And naturally any public project will only get built at union labor rates, in the Orwellian parlance at “prevailing wages.”
Impervious might also work.
that’s why card check would be particularly devastating in those states.
Yep, what industry cap-n-trade doesn’t kill, card check will.
At least the world is safe for white firemen now.
that is actually quite shocking to me.
my brother’s well services company has managers on a week of unpaid vaca every 10 weeks. that’s BEFORE either cardcheck or cap and trade comes to fruition.
you thought that the overturning of the decision would derail her nomination? i really don’t think so. the person whose seat she is to fill voted to affirm her decision, but is just one of the 4 in the minority. republicans know her views and either will or won’t vote for her, but the dems won’t have any problem voting for her as they undoubtedly think the majority ruled incorrectly in overturning the decision.
One of my coworkers is absolutely hysterical happy over the Supreme Court decision regarding the New Haven firefighters, as her brother is one of the white firefighters who was discriminated against.
The second I heard the news, I ran upstairs to tell her, but she already knew.
well, lordy me, ms laura is here!
Facts don’t matter. She has the votes and is the right color.
We’re having a pretty mild summer here. We’ve only been over 110 twice.
well, it SHOULD be a major embarrassment.
God bless you. What a great way to spend the day.
no globull warming in your neck of the woods?
Wow! WATTA ROCK!
Tomorrow’s HIGH temperature is to be 67 degrees.
We stimulate the economy a lot by mail order. Right now I’m wearing my Crazy Shirt 45 anniversary tee. It’s a copy of the orginal.
We both love their products. When I buy presents for my mom, I have them sent here; otherwise, we pay CA taxes. Nope, I’d rather pay FedEx to redeliver.
not really, judges get overturned all the time. one case, even high profile, isn’t going to make any difference.
Hip, hip, hooray!
I am adamantine on Sarah Palin and Michele Bachmann!
This So.Cal. beach girl never thought she could handle 110. I’ve been in 117 here. You get used to it, kind of. Well, you just don’t go outside . . .
anyone else having weirdness with FR? new messages are not acting read and new posts aren’t appearing either?
Tomorrow’s HIGH temperature is to be 67 degrees.
My husband was a DJ here at that time. So he knows songs and has albums (remember those) of a vast number of the 80s and 70s groups. He was a DJ at 16 in Michigan.
We really had a great winter - even I wore a jacket a couple of times (unheard of!) - mild spring no air conditioning needed until really late in the season...then bam! It was like an oven dropped on us. The worst part is no rain since early May
Not yet. Weird. We’re already in Monsoon weather, but have received .000000001 inches of rain. We’re supposed to get rain the rest of the week, but I don’t see it.
Excellent news! Can I get a yee ha out there?
Something has either happened to FR or this Vista. I got your post at 133 and there are posts up to 147, but can’t get them.
Just pressed “view replies.” I received “no replies.” Something is amiss.
I was thinking about creating a parody account on You Tube full of Billy Mays videos and testimonials about how he changed my life. If it wasn’t so disrespectful, I’d do it. The ‘Michael Jackson changed my life’ tributes are out of control.
