Hmm...I am evidently culturally illiterate, so please enlighten me dear readers.
Achille's Heel: Your greatest weakness? I think Achille was a character from Greek mythology.
Acquittal: Finally a softball for me--not guilty
Acropolis: An important city in Greece way back when?
"Actions speak louder than words" : Amen, I agree, but when I really like a guy it's amazing how I can forget. This one speaks for itself.
Act of God: A "natural" occurrence such as a hurricane or tornado that cannot be prevented by man.
Actuary: Someone who figures out stuff for insurance companies--like life expectancies or something. I may be totally off on that one.
Adagio: Well I think that's the name of the spa that sent a masseuse over to my hotel in Nashville early this year when I got a massage, but I'm guessing there is some more important meaning for this word. I just don't know it.
Addams, Jane: If her last name was spelled "Adams," I'd assume she was a first lady. No clue. I am feeling pretty stupid. I think the Jane that did the monkey stuff was Goodman. Hmm.
The Aegean: A sea....located somewhere not near here--maybe the Middle East or Greece.
Agnosticism: Not knowing what you believe with regard to whether or not there is a God. I was an agnostic for a few years, but I finally just started saying I was a "Christian" when asked by fellow classmates at Mercer (undergrad) so they wouldn't "witness" (their word) to me or sing gospel songs at me, etc. I am very glad to no longer not know what I believe, and although I completely disagree with those classmates' approach to sharing their faith, I at least now can kind of understand the feeling of urgency they seemed to have about sharing their faith.
"Alas, poor Yorick" : I guess it's from a book, but I don't know which one.
p.s. I haven't seen a cute guy all week, so I'm especially looking forward to McDreamy tonight. Don't forget Grey's!
