Word For The Day, Monday, 1/2/12
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. of, pertaining to, or like a numen; spiritual or supernatural. 2. surpassing comprehension or understanding; mysterious: that element in artistic expression that remains numinous. 3. arousing one's elevated feelings of duty, honor, loyalty, etc.: a benevolent and numinous paternity.
Etymology: "divine, spiritual," 1647, from L. numen (gen. numinis) "divine will," properly "divine approval expressed by nodding the head," from nuere "to nod" (cf. Gk. neuein "to nod").
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....
Here is my example with WFTD.
Here's hoping that a numinous 2012 will remove the incompetent Kenyan from the WH.

No pushing at the door please!
Obama’s behavior has been both invidious and numinous.
Happy 2012 everyone!
The failings of Barack Obama are too numinous to mention.
and please God we will be delivered of him in 2012. A+++
Whyisa and my friend Paula, within days of each other, both recommended The Hunger Games to me last week. I started the first book on Sat evening and was done with it within 24 hours. i am OBSESSED with it. Not highbrow lit but a compelling well told story that sucks you in immediately. I had not heard about the movie etc, but have since seen the trailer and am looking forward to the movie. I hate fiction because it makes me stay up late and monopolizes all of my time.
Obama is only numinous as a bobble head doll
Where have you been, mister????? a++++
I’m glad to be back among the reasonably normal. I hope you all had a good year. and wish you all a Happy New Year.
Geeze! Look what a little palsy will do. I’ve reported the duplicates anf hope they will remove them.I’m trying out a Christmas tablet and it seems a bit sensitive for the ham handed.
