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".
crepuscule \kri-PUHS-kyool, KREP-uh-skyool\ , noun
But when he awoke at length there was a great Phoenix brooding with spread wings above his prostrate form, its white plumage like a ghostly crepuscule and its red eyes glowing close against his own pallid and fervent face.
-- Arthur Edward Waite, The Quest of the Golden Stairs, 1893
For that is Anayat in the crepuscule, purple and mellow, sparkling and warm and effulgent when there is a moon, cool and heady and sensuous when there is no moon.
-- Arturo B. Rotor, "Zita," 1937
Crepuscule entered English around the year 1400 from the Latin meaning "twilight, dusk, darkness."
The sentence must, in some way, relate to the news of the day. The Review threads are linked for your edification. ;-)

WFB's attempt to emulate us ; ) No pushing at the door please!
Trick or treat!
Crepuscules are those little red donot looking things in the blood. Some times they get jammed up in an archway and the person has a hurt attack from which they recover by dying but not always.
The reason the creepy suckles keep moving around is that they can’t find a comfortable platelet for....I gotta go...the old woman is awake and meaner than a scalded snake!
What was supposed to be the dawn of hope and change morphd into a crepuscule of dispair and stagnation.
Y’all see South Park last night?
They lampooned Obamacare by analogy as a new system “Intellilink” for the school. It was supposed to control all of the systems, but nobody could get it to work. When trying to do things like schedule an appointment to see the school nurse, the lights would go off in the room, or music would start playing over the PA.
Despite upgrading to the silver and gold packages, it still was dysfunctional.
Finally, they chose the “Centurion plan” which involved removing all of the “intellilink” computers, wiping out all of the software and burning everything.
They also had a Canadian health care bureaucrat (as a veiled stand-in for Obama) learning that he should just admit when he has made a mistake and stop supporting an idea that doesn’t work.
I saw it.
It was also hilarious when Mr. Mackey hired and fired the Kathleen Sebelius look a like.
Yes, it was packed full of goodness. Even a Miley Cyrus analog subplot.
Is #centurionplan trending on Twitter yet? We should latch onto that.
They left for school that way.
Last night, I enjoyed seeing the crepuscular rays of the setting sun shine on the harbor in my town while lighting the fire I sat by as I listened to the BOSTON RED SOX WIN THE WORLD SERIES! WOOHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
That's cool! Some towns will suspend kids for that. How old are your kids?
That’s good for you, but I only care about the Red Sox if they are beating the Yankees.
At least they managed to finish the Fall Classic while it was still October.
A+. I wish I was there.
A for you. The curse is lifted.
Huntington Pier. California. Dinner Time. Amazing
I told the spouse last night, I am DESPERATE for a vacation. It’s our third year without one.
crepescular is what you become after eating too many crepes.
Light shone on Obamacare’s crepuscule
Shows that it’s well behind schedule
And the lies of the man
About keeping your plan
Have dropped his approval to miniscule
Especially if they are that big! A+ for you!
Still raining out there. Looks like a treadmill day. Dreary, just like it would be if I had to work at HHS. A+ for you!
jolly green giant’s breakfast!
You’ll appreciate this. My youngest had a costume party this weekend and put together her costume. Coverall worksuit, respirator, goggles, gloves and made herself a transformer. She built and strapped the parts to herself so she looked like an RV and then when she stood up, a meth cook. I was horrified and proud of her ingenuity at the same time.
And nothing better proves Obama’s early descent into ineptitude and stupidity than his speech about Army medics with strong arms as corpuscules ....
This is interesting:
I guess Comedy Central’s lawyers took a nap.
Oh the liability.
I hope they don’t elect TM.
Slightly better than calling them corpsicles, right? A for you!
Trick or treat, smell my feet...
The blue, crepuscule hour
Was the time of an Autumn day
That used to be my favorite-
But now that has gone away
Obama’s rapacious minions
Stalk a website in the dark-
Fishing for Obamacare fees-so
Tonight, you’d better park
Yourself behind a locked door
Sit where you can’t be seen-
And curse those Obama voters
For even spoiling Halloween...
Your theme and meter, along with the day, have me craving to read some Poe tonight. A+ for you!
Every crepuscule belonging to the gang would tend to harass other students during the dusk before classes or after hours ...
My dad always said his favorite team was whoever was playing the Redskins that day. For colleges, he said the same thing about Gtown.
You know they are planning to run Bigboy next time. Which reminds me, how do you eat an elephant?
A for you! I plan on making either a Dalek or stone angel costume for answering the door next year, for the beggars.
Or they could keep the name and change the mascot to a potato.
Much like SU did. Xshub has a contraband hat with the Saltine warrior on it, was sure they’d all been purged.
Now that you mention it, I’ve got a craving for the author as well-
“Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered weak and weary
Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore
While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping
As of someone gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door.
Tis some visitor, I muttered-tapping at my chamber door-
Only this and nothing more...
Ghastly grim and ancient Raven wandering from the nightly shore-
Tell me what thy lordly name is on the night’s plutonian shore-
Quoth the Raven, ‘Nevermore’”...
You know that absolutely no normal people know anything about any Congressional hearings, right?
We’re winning Jon Stewart and SNL and South Park right now.
She got her ass whipped. I saw the hearings.
Check my twitter stream, Mike Rogers jammed it to her on substantive issues, that Rush wouldn’t understand.
There was a second congressman also familiar with the actual tech issues, that also spanked her.
And in between, they nailed her on other, more political points...
And, they are pulling her back, in 4 weeks.
I don’t believe we are. No matter that now they’re deriding Obama, Hillary will be touted when the time comes.
See what soother just said NO ONE IS WATCHING. Totes irrelevant.
