Word of the Day
Thursday, January 25, 2007
Xeric (adjective) – Able to survive in an extremely dry, arid habitat; suited to, adapted to, characterized by a dry climate (the word originates in Greek)

Word in a Sentence: In my novel Choices Meant for Gods, Emperor Darne Wold III brings his daughter to the Taiman household from his xeric desert land in the center of Onweald.

Your turn!

Although it's possible to survive in the Death Valley Desert one needs plenty of irrigation due to its xeric climate. There - used both the word for the day and "its" and "it's" in the same sentence.

And I did that on only my first cup of coffee too! It's amazing at times the things I can manage to do. Have a severe cramping in my forehead now from straining over that though. Maybe I'll just go back to bed instead of going COMPUTER Shopping today! No way, Jose! Gotta get a new 'puter!
