Word o the day today is Lucullan which is described as rich; magnificent and luxurious.. ie..
Obviously only sellouts win those awards..
When literary groups meet in Paris, they also tend to eat and during the
November rite of book awards, luncheons may reach a Lucullan level.-- Jeanne
Molli, Paris Links Pleasures Of Table and the Mind, New York Times, November 18,
I prefer the description of Lucullen which I got when I scrolled over it on the Yahoo page.. profusely extravagant.. words that I would never think to put together, indeed words that I don't use individually all that often.. but I think it works as an expressive description. Better than lucullen really.. even assuming anyone knows what it means.
