Happy (Pleasant) Thesaurus (Lexicon) Day!

Happy Birthday to Peter Roget. The creator of the Thesaurus was born on this day in 1779. This invaluable book has been the friend of many a student and writer. I know I use it everyday, both in book form and online. Need a different word for rain? Flip open your thesaurus and find drizzle, downpour, flurry and many others.
