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....
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 . . .
