Quandary Resolutions by what_ever

  • #4411 submitted 01/01/2013: nudiustertian, inception, hark back, exordium

    Nudiustertian joys had fled; the memory of the ball seemed now more than three days old; the inception of another year now weighed upon me and caused me to hark back to the exordium of this endeavor, to recall even when I was but a week or two behind schedule, and to wish I had kept even that pace...

  • #2172 submitted 01/02/2011: horology, contumelious, flummox, nostrum

    To measure the time I spent pondering this in mere horology would simply not do it justice: so many days and nights, lost in deep thought, flummoxed by my own contumelious behavior – to say nothing of what he must have thought! - which continued despite the fact that I never felt the same (indeed, quite the opposite); but in all my searching for the cause and the cure, all I ever found were mere nostrums I invented myself, with no real reason to believe they would ever be of any use to me.

  • #2159 submitted 12/30/2010: orchidaceous, monochrome, mahatma, dithyrambic

    She was no mahatma of photography, certainly, but her dithyrambic interest in the art was evident in the proliferation of pictures on her Web page; she studied a variety of techniques, favoring simplicity and monochrome over the more orchidaceous, “busy” pieces.
