Limn

    tr.v. limned, limn·ing (lmnng), limns

      1. To describe.
      2. To depict by painting or drawing.


Rules: Everyone must leave a post using the Word for the Day in a sentence.

The Review threads are linked for your edification. ;-)

Practice makes perfect.....post on....

Actually, Holder is loathe to limn about the program....probably guilty up to his shifty eyeballs and praying he will skate.

I am reading the Pecksniffian BORe’s book on Killing Lincoln on my kindle. It will be the last book as I am mailing it to my son on the west coast who will read all the books I have stored up. I am getting a new version that will allow me to post on FR and keep up with the peculations of theO’s gang of thieves. I am having ephemeral dreams of the color screen. I hope I have done an operose job of limning all of the last weeks words.

I thought stuffing was for people who didn’t have enough meat to eat.

He tried climbing higher to see better, but he fell out of the sublemonal tree before it cleared up.

They’ve added a line to the state income tax form for this coming year that says, basically, “How much do you owe us for sales tax on stuff you bought on the internet?”

It’s expected that most people will ignore it until some poor example suckers get raked over the coals.

They call it “use” tax. Like I owe the state anything for the privilege of “using” stuff I bought.

Obama wants us all to think
The world is turning right
And hopes we see the economy
All limned in golden light

Most unfortunately for him
Quite the opposite is true-
He’s too dumb to listen for
The other falling shoe

Why must we wait-just impeach
This silly Carter wannabe
Get rid of all this malaise
And set the taxpayers free

Good thing it is raining and there is no work, because I’m ready to go off on the first person who comes within smacking range-if it wasn’t so wet, I’d go hide in the woods with a book until it is getting dark.

Interestingly, your funny graphics yesterday were the catalyst for the whole thing, so I’ve been boiling since then-a pompous, self absorbed and humorless Nemesis has insulted me-now I’m pissed and loaded for bear...

Breaking a contract. Leaving (before the bowl they all worked hard for) with only an email message for his players. After preaching integrity, etc. all season. And after getting players to trust in his system and understand it may not get immediate results.

URRGHHH!

Now he’s in Arizona State saying the same thing about “high octane” offense. They’re dumber than Pitt.
