Word For The Day, Monday, September 15, 2003
The Verbivores | 9/15/03 | Teacher

Posted on 09/15/2003 5:21:37 AM PDT by RikaStrom

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”. Rules: Everyone must leave a post using the “word of the day”; in a sentence. The sentence must, in some way, relate to the news of the day. Practice makes perfect.....post on....


adumbrate \AD-uhm-brayt\, verb:
adumbrating, adumbrates, adumbrated; transitive verb
adumbration noun
adumbratively; adverb
adumbrative; adjective

1. To give a faint shadow or slight representation of; to outline.
2. To foreshadow; to intimate.
3. To overshadow; to shade.
4. To disclose partially or guardedly.

Both in the vastness and the richness of the visible universe the invisible God is adumbrated.
--L. Taylor.

Etymology: [Latin adumbr re, adumbr t-, to represent in outline : ad-, ad- + umbra, shadow.]

Good Morning Students. Welcome to class!

Class is now in session. The rules are simple; you get a grade if you use the WFTD in a sentence, haiku, limerick, or quatrain. You get a "+" if you make a link, or make the teacher laugh, or you offer the appropriate bribes. I hold the grade book; the whip and chair.

Al-Muhajiroun, the extremist Muslim group that used the second anniversary of the September 11 atrocities last week to praise the "Magnificent 19" hijackers, is facing eviction from its London offices.

Claiming peaceful ways,
Adumbrating religion
Hatred lurks within.

Group faces eviction for celebration of Sept 11

You can get a home equity line of credit for around 4%. Anyone who can do this but is still paying credit card interest at close to 20% is paying a dumb rate.

The adumbration of Isabel, combined with xshubby's departure this week for a biz trip, has me in a tizzy.

We got taken, big time by our Mortgage company - we contacted them in April to refinance..... they agreed and did all the paperwork. We paid for an appraisal.... closing was supposed to happen by first of July - didn't....... then by first of August.....again, it didn't....and the creep won't return phone calls......

A guy at work told me that Chase was notorious for doing that - so now we have to start all over..... I could strangle the guy with my bare hands........

Morning Slippy!

My deliquent fuzzbutt gave me a black eye! While she was running around the back yard on Sat, I bent down to get her frisbee and she ran smack into me.

Soo, now I have a black eye and a sore head... I think she just has a sore head! LOL

"middle of the hose" should be "middle of the nose." I'm sure the Croqs could have a field day with that typo.
