EVERLASTING, adj. Lasting forever. It is with no small diffidence that I venture to offer this brief and elementary definition, for I am not unaware of the existence of a bulky volume by a sometime Bishop of Worcester, entitled, A Partial Definition of the Word "Everlasting," as Used in the Authorized Version of the Holy Scriptures. His book was once esteemed of great authority in the Anglican Church, and is still, I understand, studied with pleasure to the mind and profit of the soul.

2008 Update:  Monday, usually by 9AM.

everlasting - The quality associated with political primaries.

The Everlasting Gobstopper was hot commodity by the competition in Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory.

I'm still trying to figure out how you'd suck on it.

a fixed measure of time that begins when one purchases an expensive luxury item, and ends the moment the warranty expires.

Jim said...

EVERLASTING: Quilly beat me, I should have woke up earlier.

EVERLASTING: Complete with a 90-day money-back guarantee.

EVERLASTING, but discontinued and nonexistent due to competition from overseas.

This, too, shall pass.

Wake me up when it's over?

G said...

everlasting: often preceeded by the words love, time, and seemingly our mortgage payments.

everlastingas far as we know: the strangest element of time ... xoxo

Doug said...

For e'er and e'er, K.

You ain't lying, Poobah.

Jenn, I'm starting to understand Cassie's challenge.

Quilly, that's the same unit of time for which Gabriel blows his trumpet for each new believer.

Jim, that's why I shop overseas.

Every eternity does, Icy.

Logo, but you just woke up!

G, it's funny how mortgage payments last so long and paychecks fade so quickly.

What, Mireille? No time for infinity?

mireille said...

Yeah, I've missed you too. xoxo

tsduff said...

Yes, Doug, your definition update stands undefeated. Everlasting (Gobstoppers) - A hard candy which was created by Willy Wonka in his Chocolate Factory. You can suck and suck and suck and suck and they never get smaller.

Everlasting, adj. Decision '08.

sauerkraut said...

Everlasting - the act of putting on the shorts and boxing gloves, and entering the ring to get danced around by a butterfly and stung like a bee.

word verification: gnuzapp.

no, seriously

Jamie Dawn said...

Everlasting: the Energizer bunny, but not the batteries.

actonbell said...

My Monday was surprisingly NOT everlasting, but today will be.
Happy Tuesday!

Doug said...

Zockso, Mireille.

Terry, that Willy Wonka was some kind of candy man.

a4g, the inane analysis we'll be subject to between now and November boggles the mind and sunders the heart.

Nice, Sauerkraut, Muhammad Ali and Everlast.

JD, I've noticed that about the batteries. Must be a solar bunny.

Look outside, Actonbell! Look at the begonias! It's still Monday!

Every day is Monday?

tsduff said...

No, Ariel - everyday is NOT Monday - otherwise the misery would never end!

Those voices in my head.

Doug said...

Yes, Ariel, here in Macondo.

Terry, and does it?

Hobbes, I know, Iknow.

Cooper, no quiet times any more?
