Word of the day: Chimerical

Thanks to LKB's comment on yesterday's post, where I wrote about "chimerical chemical randomness," I realized that I haven't had a word of the day in many moons.  So here it is.

I'll go with definitions 2 and 3.  Chimera:  a thing that is hoped or wished for but in fact is illusory or impossible to achieve; an organism containing a mixture of genetically different tissues.

Make of this what you will.  If you can play it in scrabble, it'll be worth at least 14 points, and potentially a bingo.

And BTW, major kudos to LKB and BEM for their excellent hospitality on the deck last night.  Do you have a recipe for that watermelon tomato salad?
