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".

adamantine; adj.

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:1200–1250; 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....

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.

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.

Re: the ruling against Ms. Sotomayor, I put forth this little ditty:

O my darlin’, O my darlin’, O my darlin’, adamantine
You have lost, now go forever - I’m not sorry, adamantine...

He has no time for birth control
And that is why in times like these
There are so many Sons of B's.

Hmmmmn.

(Despite being declared a multi-faceted sciency-geek by xsex, Robt is unsure what the big rock is.)

Perhaps it is “coal” a rare material now more precious than other wasteful uses of carbon. Better get our resident geologicialist involved before the issue becomes any more transparent and opinions crystalize.

I’m gonna go out in a while to stimulate the local economy. Rush the turtle is nearly out of food, CG is nearly out of cologne, the hummingbirds need a new feeder, and I just want something new & pretty.

(Robt notes that the shorter and thinner that new & pretty item is, the more CG will be stimulating the local AL economy .....)

Hmmn.

FR not updating the “last post” and “bottom of file” numbers.

Denial of service attack by a liberal?
