This is one of my favorite words in the English language. So I was completely delighted to see it arrive in my inbox this morning.
Splendiferous (adj.) magnificent; fine. Splendiferous is an elaboration of the word splendid (gorgeous, sumptuous, dazzling) but owes its roots to the Latin splendere “to shine” and ferre “to bear.”
Surely, amongst the adjectives we have found so appropriate to describe our dearest RA, we must include the word “splendiferous?”
Of course, there’s the man himself–intelligent, multi-talented, insightful, versatile, good-humored, modest, humble, gentlemanly, charming, drop-dead gorgeous and sexy as all get out. Such a splendiferous example of masculinity, is he not?? An all=around splendiferous human being.
I know everybody’s probably seen this one, but it is one of my most viewed, most liked videos and you might say it has a touch of the splendiferous in it–after all, who is the focus of it? And Elizaveta’s song is so infectious . . .
The course of true love never did run smooth.~William Shakespeare, A Midsummer Night’s Dream
Oddly enough, ever so often the Centurylink DSL gods smile down on me and allow me to load a video in less than two hours. Combine this with a certain degree of annoying pain interfering with rest and here you have it: the remake of “To Make You Feel My Love.” This one’s for Judit.
