    well, Scher, what do you have in MIND? i'll post a snippet and start the fun:

    Today's word serendipity

    'Twas serendipitous that they enrolled at Oxford and fell in love studying Elizabeth, Browning, those two students from Finland and Beijing.

    I can't remember what serendipity means, lol *looks it up again*

    ah, out of coincidence? Is it what they're trying to say? "the lucky tendency to find interesting or valuable things by chance"

    May 3rd - abeyance

    Virginia--The West
    By Walt Whitman
    1819-1892

    The noble sire fallen on evil days,
    I saw with hand uplifted, menacing, brandishing,
    (Memories of old in abeyance, love and faith in abeyance,)
    The insane knife toward the Mother of All.

    The noble son on sinewy feet advancing,
    I saw, out of the land of prairies, land of Ohio's waters and of Indiana,
    To the rescue the stalwart giant hurry his plenteous offspring,
    Drest in blue, bearing their trusty rifles on their shoulders.

    Then the Mother of All with calm voice speaking,
    As to you Rebellious, (I seemed to hear her say,) why strive against
    me, and why seek my life?
    When you yourself forever provide to defend me?
    For you provided me Washington--and now these also.

    ..."So...," he wondered, "...we find a passage of some example of a written communication, poem, famous quote, something serendipetiously discovered, but we don't hold it in abeyance, but instead post it here as an example of the 'Word Of The Day In Use'. Is that correct?" he queried. "Or do we use it in a sentence of our own making?" Finished his interogation he glanced briefly around the room, realized he was talking to himself again........

    but the walls, which are always listening (like the very good friends they are) answered him, "Why yes, you are exactly right!".

    soporific

    'Weintraub passed a hand across his bald scalp. "It's a dull tale," he said. "I've been to Hyperion before. There are no confrontations with monsters, no acts of heroism. It's a tale by a man whose idea of epic adventure is speaking to a class without his notes."

    "All the better," said Martin Silenus. "We need a soporific."'


    From Hyperion by Dan Simmons
