Entry: mien (n.)

In context"...Krause never so much walking as making an infinite series of grand entrances into pocket after pocket of space, a queenly hauteur now both sickening and awesome given Krause's spectral mien..."

Definition: The look, bearing, manner, or conduct of a person, as showing character, mood, etc.

Other: A few hours late today.  Sorry about that.  I spent the weekend canoeing and camping and by the time I got home I was way too tired to get to the blog.  On the plus side, I have some great pictures I may upload here and include relevant (new?) words.

1785   W. Cowper Tirocinium in Task 829   See..Fops at all corners, lady-like in mien.
