WotD May 30

Phantasmagorical, Adj.

1. Characterized by fantastic imagery and incongruous juxtapositions
2. Unrealistic; the quality of blurring real and imaginary elements as in a dream.

I'm not exactly sure how to use this word in a sentence; someone else can try. I just think it's a super cool word.

Movie Night

Tonight we watched "Il Postino" for movie night at Darcy's. I really liked the movie. The best thing was that it was David's movie! He loaned it to Darcy. Anyway, those of you who didn't come really missed out. You probably hate us. (I just threw that in for Jen, really, I'm not as pessimistic as her. I'm still hoping that you all see the errors of your ways and rearrange your priorities. Mkay?) And also you all owe us watermelon except Andrew.

For those who didn't hear the story, Andrew came by Darcy's at 9:45 this morning with a watermelon. He rode the bus. I don't know about you, but I just get this funny mental picture when I think about Andrew on the bus with a watermelon. But then he decided not to come to actually watch the movie. He's crazy. (Crazy?? I was crazy once. They put me in a room...)

Oh yeah, and Logan brought cheesecake in a bowl. Gotta love it.

The thing about this movie is that it really made me want to go to Italy. And Darcy, Lindsay, and Dan get to go. Oh boy am I jealous!

On a completely different note, I think someone should post the happenings of staff meeting on this blog. Since they are always so entertaining :)

Word of the Day (WotD) May 29

I'm not sure if Brad got his WotD from any particular website, so I picked one of my favorites. And someone else can post one for tomorrow. :-D

Today's word: pithy. Adj.
1. brief, forceful, and meaningful in expression; full of vigor, substance, or meaning; terse; forcible: a pithy observation.
2. of, like, or abounding in pith.

Example: "Why Jen, I really enjoy your pithy comments about the dungeon! Keep 'em coming!"

Ben ;-)

Word of the Day (WotD) May 28

Today's word is: gastronomical. Adj. Taken from the root words of "gastronomy" and"astronomical," this word deals with that which is involved with both the stomach and outer space.


Buzz Lightyear: "Something stinks. An alien from planet Z1D4X8 must be experiencing gastronomical problems."

By the way, I'm going to be gone from Thursday till Saturday, so someone will have to carry the "word of the day" torch until I return.
