Word For The Day, Monday, 12/12/11
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. lasting a very short time; short-lived; transitory: the ephemeral joys of childhood. 2. lasting but one day: an ephemeral flower
Etymology: C16: from Greek ephēmeros lasting only a day, from hēmera day]
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....

Calif. senator threatens boycott over Lowe's ads

Ted Lieu, D-Torrance, told The Associated Press on Sunday that he would also consider legislative action if Lowe's doesn't apologize to Muslims and reinstate its ads
oh good, glad to be of service to you : )

Barack says, “It’s ours!”
He makes me drink Scotch and pop Demerol
My sister lives in a big Hunky area and the Hunkyfest is a big deal every year, with people competing for best Paprikash. Because we’re goofy, we call it Poppykosh.
Only half. Does that make me a gyp? Mother's side is Russian. Both of my parents were first generation Americans.
I pray to God that we can get rid of him!!
mine too! all four of my grandparents were off the boat from Eastern Europe. Both maternal grandparents from Lithuania, paternal grandpa from Poland, paternal grandma from Ukraine. Maybe our grandparents passed by each other on Ellis Island : )

Count me in the Hunkie reunion! Both paternal grandparents off the boat from Poland, both maternal grandparents from Slovakia. One grandfather was a coal miner, one a steelworker. My little Slovak grandmother used to call us gypsies when we acted up. You know, my parents had a “mixed marriage”, what with a Pollock marrying a Slovak. Heresy.
Silly, he isn’t supposed to EAT them.......
Three of my grandparents came to the US from other countries: Denmark, Scotland, and Canada(Newfoundland). The other one was from Brooklyn and dated back to the American Revolution’s Captain John Parker. She was the scariest of all.
i had a steelworker and a coal miner for grandpas too! and my Lithuanian grandma used to warn me about Italians, all the time! they are a different kind of people, xs, she would say!!! HA and i married one!!
