Word of the Day(s)

23 07 2007

Oops, that’ll teach me to not pay attention, I blogged late yesterday, and when I finally got around to it I missed the Word of the Day.

D’oh!  Oh well, that means today you get two.  With the new task of trying to use them both in a single sentence.

Now, having issued that challenge, I’m kind of wishing I’d looked at the words first, as I have no idea what they are, or whether they’re going to be easily utilised.

Guess I’ll find out momentarily.

So here they are:

AVATAR
\AV-uh-tar\, noun:

1. The incarnation of a deity — chiefly associated in Hinduism with the incarnations of Vishnu.
2. An embodiment, as of a quality, concept, philosophy, or tradition; an archetype.
3. A temporary manifestation or aspect of a continuing entity.

…and:

TRENCHANT

1. Characterized by or full of force and vigor; as, “a trenchant analysis.”
2. Caustic; biting; severe; as, “trenchant criticism.”
3. Distinct; clear-cut; clearly or sharply defined.

Phew!  This looks a little easier than I at first thought it may have been.  Here goes to my and your ongoing educations.

The sentence:

The angered Avatar issued directions to it’s followers in a manner that could have been viewed as being trenchant.

Ok, I admit that it was weak, but it’s a sentence. πŸ˜‰

Have a good day!

I don’t think anyone could create a nonage trenchant avatar that could emulate the contents of this blog in sotto voce. And besides, if they can, their tortuous mind will become a bibelot.

Oh my… So much free time. πŸ˜‰
… and that my friends is why Vista doesn’t work, or… why it’s more bibelot than operating system. πŸ˜‰ LOL!

what on earth is a biblebot? It sounds like The Transformers for the religious crowd.

Ahhh… “Bibelot” is a previous Word of the Day.
BIBELOT
\BEE-buh-loh\, noun:
A small decorative object without practical utility; a trinket.

Entertainment and education all rolled into one here… πŸ˜‰

Me too. Which for Mark (partner) is a good thing, as he’s not much more than a bibelot. πŸ˜‰
