Oh for the love of Pete!

We're going to TALK after school, young HFox.

Meanwhile the new word is: lamiaceous.

Coffee 05-13-2006 01:20 PM

Thanks Brynn...for the shortest and least fullfilling dictionary thread "win" ever.

lamiaceous

1. The state of blissfully being "on the lam". 2. describing the feeling of enjoyment being a renegade or outlaw.

Marcus Bales 05-13-2006 01:39 PM

lamiaceous - of or relating to the serpent-woman of Keats's poem "Lamia",

... she was a maid
More beautiful than ever twisted braid,
Or sigh'd, or blush'd, or on spring-flowered lea
Spread a green kirtle to the minstrelsy:
A virgin purest lipp'd, yet in the lore
Of love deep learned to the red heart's core ...


and, by the most remarkable coincidence, also a description of our honored word-judge, Trisherina,

posted in hopes she doesn't look it up and find the additional description

She was a gordian shape of dazzling hue,
Vermilion-spotted, golden, green, and blue;
Striped like a zebra, freckled like a pard,
Eyed like a peacock, and all crimson barr'd;
And full of silver moons, that, as she breathed,
Dissolv'd, or brighter shone, or interwreathed
Their lustres with the gloomier tapestries -
So rainbow-sided, touch'd with miseries,
She seem'd, at once, some penanced lady elf,
Some demon's mistress, or the demon's self.

How do you define a word like trisherina?
How do you catch a cloud and pin it down?
How do you find a word that means trisherina?
A flibbertijibbet! A will-o'-the wisp! A clown!

Many a thing you know you'd like to tell her
Many a thing she ought to understand
But how do you make her stay
The dictionary game to play?
How do you keep a wave upon the sand?

lamiaceous -a hard act to follow.

So dazzling the deed the lamiaceous party shimmered brightly from day into the night.

lamiaceous -- rare human female body language indicating readiness for sex; like gruntled and cography, usually found in the negative form, i.e., dislamiaceous.

lamiaceous

The slow, boring style of hockey most closely associated with the New Jersey Devils. Named after Lou Lamierello, current coach of the Devils.

After years of avoiding it, the Charlestown Chiefs finally relented and discovered success with a Lamiaceous defense.

lamiaceous

When attraction to another person becomes obsessive to the point of desperation.

Jeff was so lamiaceous in his pursuing of Madeleine that he covered every inch of his skin with tattoos of her face and name.

dddrum 05-15-2006 04:39 PM

lamiaceous - very nice, much to be desired; derived from the Cockney terms "lummy" and "aces". See also "schweet" and "kewl beanz".

Brynn 05-15-2006 05:17 PM

lamiaceous - glossy to the point of appearing laminated.

Maeve carefully applied a cucumber peel to her face and lounged in lamiacious luxury while the nanny took the children to see "Ice Age II."

funkytuba 05-16-2006 12:53 AM

lamiaceous - of or describing the sput picked up by a childs "lovey" during the course of its travels

Bunny had become lamiaceous to the point of invoking nausea, so Gwendolyn had to spend a tearful afternoon watching the washer as Mom ran him through the wash.

And now, Dictionary Gamers, the moment you've been waiting for, when the real definition of lamiaceous is revealed: a. pertaining to or like mint; belonging to mint family of plants.

Now for the minty-fresh judging.

HFox wins my heart (again!) as well as something far more valuable, the Definition the Judge Hoped to See Award with:
(adj) dipped in chocolate then rolled in coconut.

dddrum earns the English Only at Gaming Tables, Please Award with:
very nice, much to be desired; derived from the Cockney terms "lummy" and "aces". See also "schweet" and "kewl beanz".

Dear Brynn wins the Has Volunteered at Elementary School Award with:
glossy to the point of appearing laminated.
Maeve carefully applied a cucumber peel to her face and lounged in lamiacious luxury while the nanny took the children to see "Ice Age II."

daver takes home the Be Glad You're Not From San Jose Award for:
The slow, boring style of hockey most closely associated with the New Jersey Devils. Named after Lou Lamierello, current coach of the Devils.
After years of avoiding it, the Charlestown Chiefs finally relented and discovered success with a Lamiaceous defense.

Marcus Bales gets the I Am Rendered Simply Speechless Award for his excellent:
lamiaceous - of or relating to the serpent-woman of Keats's poem "Lamia"
(extensive quotes omitted)
and his not so excellent:
rare human female body language indicating readiness for sex; like gruntled and cography, usually found in the negative form, i.e., dislamiaceous.

xfox can only be given the Man, Doesn't Xfox Sound Like a Nice Person to Hang Out With On Weekends? Award for:
a hard act to follow.
So dazzling the deed the lamiaceous party shimmered brightly from day into the night.

The That Reminds Me of ... Something Award goes to LeahDear simply for a definition that reminded me of something:
When attraction to another person becomes obsessive to the point of desperation.
Jeff was so lamiaceous in his pursuing of Madeleine that he covered every inch of his skin with tattoos of her face and name.

And Coffee wins Coveted Second Place because he managed to post an apt definition even in the midst of the terrible travesty of justice that befell him:
1. The state of blissfully being "on the lam". 2. describing the feeling of enjoyment being a renegade or outlaw.

I guess that leaves funky to bring it on home this round with his late entry that won me over for obvious reasons:
of or describing the sput picked up by a childs "lovey" during the course of its travels
Bunny had become lamiaceous to the point of invoking nausea, so Gwendolyn had to spend a tearful afternoon watching the washer as Mom ran him through the wash.

Rock out with your... no, that's okay, just rock out, funkytuba!

funkytuba 05-17-2006 03:00 AM

thanky trish... yet another one ripped from the pages of my life:

the next word:

quincunx

LeahDear 05-17-2006 07:03 AM

quincunx

A medical anomaly that afflicts 1 in 10,000 women. The quincunx syndrome patient develops 5 vaginal passages whilst in the womb. Not all of these are apparent but surgery is possible for the more obvious ones.

Jenna was delighted to discover that she had the quincunx syndrome. Her porn career could only benefit from this and decided not to opt for surgery.

daverbee 05-17-2006 09:06 AM

:D I cannot possibly hope to top that so I'm gonna pass on this one and wait to see what nugget of information Dinz will come up with... :D
