Gracious.
Yet another schoolwork entry. Yeah baby, let's get this thing started.
Graciousness. Comes from the word 'Grace'. And grace happens to be someone who sits beside me in class. She's a really nice person. That lives up to her name.
of course, "nice" is too overrated a word to use t describe her, or the word "Gracious", cos graciousness goes way deeper than that.
Anyway, that particular word has letters that can be used to form words like "car", "sour", "rag", "rug", "sugar" and "sari". Damn, I'm getting way too good at this letter scrambling thing. I'm an English prodigy at heart.
According to a dictionary, "Gracious", as an adjective, means:

Characterized by kindness and warm courtesy.
Characterized by tact and propriety: responded to the insult with gracious humor.
Of a merciful or compassionate nature.
Condescendingly courteous; indulgent.
Characterized by charm or beauty; graceful.
Characterized by elegance and good taste: gracious living.
Archaic. Enjoying favor or grace; acceptable or pleasing.

Yeah, you'd probably need another dictionary if you wanna understand these words too.
As an interjection, however, it is used to express surprise or mild emotion. Now, I didn't know this before, only because I've never used that word as an interjection. Usually I'd say "Oh my Gah!" or "What tha...?", but that's not the point.
"Gracious" is a Middle English word, from Old French gracieus, from Latin grātiōsus, from grātia, good will. I think it might also have something to do with the Mexican(?) word for thanks, gracias.
Graciousness is second nature for a host, be it a house party, school function or whatever. They have to be warm and inviting, and thus make their guests feel more comfortable and hospitable in their homes. I know this, cos I've quite come to terms with my The Sims: House Party computer game.
Graciousness can be used to avert undesirable situations too. Whe dealing with an insult, or as a third person in an argument, gracious humour is usually (I said 'usually', cos I'm not too sure if this is actually true!) the best method of escape. I haven't tried it yet, though I know I will have to sooner or later, if I wanna remove the trolls from my tag-board. Somebody remind me.
Being gracious means being forgiving and spirit-generous. A gracious person would know how to deal with frustrating situations of dealing with guilty culprits of cerytain bad deeds, without hitting the roof. I am an example of such, though not always a very good one (heh. it always pays to blow your own horn a bit, too).
Examples of gracious people?
Um... There's Oprah Winfrey. She's a very graceful person for her personality, her abilty as a friendly and wisecracking talk show host, and someone with a mind for good style.
Goodness Gracious Me! is an Indian/Brit-based sketch show on Star World. Is usually features skits ofthe conflict and integration between traditional Indian culture and modern British life. Some of them reverse the roles to view the British from an Indian perspective while others poke fun at Indian stereotypes. It features funny actors and actresses like Sanjeev Bhaskar (also from 'The Kumars at No. 42), Kulvinder Ghir, Meera Syal and Nina Wadia.
Aha! You wanna know translations for the word too! I can give you that!

An intriguing discussion is worth comment. I think that you
need to publish more about this topic, it may not be a taboo matter but typically people do
not speak about these topics. To the next! Many thanks!!

Hey there this is kind of of off topic but I was wanting
to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to
manually code with HTML. I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding skills so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

However, there is no need to buy expensive devices when you can easily build a homemade vaporizer.

Your Oscilloscope kit is likely to create a digital oscilloscope.

A vaporizer will be the best thing since sliced bread.

challenger to the Volcano vaporizer
digital and at a couple of hundred dollars less well
worth considering. People who suffer from sore throat seriously experience difficulty in breathing due

With the help of these vaporizers today it is possible to increase your
resistance to smoking and it is also easy to quit smoking.
I've used both Brita and Pur filters (which you can buy almost anywhere) to filter water for the Vaporizer. Take a teaspoon of the pepper and put it into a glass of water.

I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the structure of your site?

Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could
connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two images.
Maybe you could space it out better?
