I am mortified. The last 8 hours generated only one more def, offering only 8 choices, which just seems woefully inadequate. I will extend the deadline to 5PM US Eastern time Thursday, and figure out how to manage it.

More defs, please!

Alan

With a little more than eight hours to go, I have only eight definitions – from Lodge, Widdis, Naylor, Keating, Madnick, Shefler and Barrs, and of course, a legitimate English language dictionary. Since two will be combined (as they are all but identical), that means that only seven choices – albeit excellent ones - will be available unless I get some more over the next few hours.

 

Please rise to the occasion and send in your defs. Or let me know if I’ve inadvertently missed your email.

Aww, I wanted a 25% chance of getting votes.

 

Not that it would help, probably.

 

Thanks for HARASsing people to submit more. 😃

We have here a total of 11 definitions of HARAS, one real and ten fake. Two definitions that were substantively identical have been combined. 
 
 
 
 
  1. A mildly narcotic paste made from the crushed stamens of various species of anemones.

  2. A tall, often beehive-shaped superstructure set above the inner sanctum of a Hindu temple in northern Indian temple design.
 
 
  1. Breeding station for horses
 
 
  1. A large sand dune with smaller dunes that form on the leeward and windward faces.
 
 
  1. A male or female who is the center of attention for a group of males.
 
 
  1. First stage of molasses production at which point the juice is squeezed out of the raw cane.
 
 
  1. A man’s stuffed quilted doublet of a kind worn between the Middle Ages and the 17th
 
 
  1. To be overwhelmed by a herd of playful puppies at a dog farm
 
 
  1. In Buddhism, a state of mental unification where consciousness is absorbed in a specific object, arising through the cultivation of meditative calm.
 
 
  1. A mint and cinnamon flavored liqueur
 
 
  1. A Turkish fruit cordial made from dates, apple and apricot.
Please send me your votes by 9 PM Saturday US Eastern time, or the equivalent elsewhere. I will apologize in advance that there may be a delay in posting the results, which I will try to do on Sunday, but which may wait to Monday because of my travel plans.

As usual, I  haven't a clue. I'll guess at 4 and 9.

  1. A large sand dune with smaller dunes that form on the leeward and windward faces. 
  1. In Buddhism, a state of mental unification where consciousness is absorbed in a specific object, arising through the cultivation of meditative calm.

Shani (and the gang),

Spoke with Alan last night. He was back home from a road trip of several days - Thursday pm to Saturday morning with me, during which time he sent out the list of defs - and knew this was overdue. It's near the top of his to-do list. It's 7:45 am in his time zone now. He's a fairly early riser and will surely get to this soon.
