Re: Word of Today

How about torpor - this heat is sending me straight into a torpor.

Do you make your own, MC? That does sound lovely for a day like today!
I can but I think the amount worth making would clog my studious brain, hahah. I need to stay focused. Lemon tarts here are great, not always tangy enough, but still a lovely treat.

Imbue. I read Dan Ariely, he inspires. His last text was on "imbuing our other than 1st kisses with more meaning".

I don't think I have ever actually used that word in speaking. Let's insert that word a lot today in whatever is being said, and let's think about the other than 1st kisses.

Re: Word of Today

To encourage a positive outlook for the day- ebullient


(also appropriate for the weather since it has a root in boiling and bubbling!)

Re: Word of Today

That' a great word.

I think mine for today will be sassy.

It is not a word I particularly like, Urban Dictionary refers to sassy as "possessing an ungodly amount of cool", which I think just translates to impolite but hot and tolerated, conceited. Not sure. I think I want to figure out.

Re: Word of Today

Scorchio is a new one for me!


I think my word today is versatile. Great concept and it just glides off the tongue.

Re: Word of Today

My word for today is unfortunately "torrid"



I'm sure I will be very sick of the heat by the end of day.

Rain!! We finally have a light, but steady rain coming down. Temp has cooled off nicely to 24 with a cool breeze.

Re: Word of Today



This phrase crept up recently in a conversation, what an un-appealing mouthfeel it leaves after.

Let's fix it. Think of words.

Languid is a good word. I just saw it in a magnetic poetry set and wondered how much it gets used. Unrushed.

Re: Word of Today

Are you alone at this literary party MusicChick?

I'll throw in "fenestron" because I deal with them daily and people keep on misspelling it or just don't have a clue.

Tough one to throw into an after dinner conversation mind you. Unless you're in a hangar.

Re: Word of Today

I wasn't alone at a sky party, hahahah...but here it seems a bit dry. Thanks for the fenestron, I will go duely check since it sounds like nothing I know..fenestron, electron, metronom.

Aah, ok. Fan in fin? Nifty. I feel like that sometimes when I have too much to do.

Tail.
