Word of the Day: Ambient

Soooooo I had an epiphany. I've decided that Fridays will be saved for my word of the day post. I used to do this on Myspace all the time but I stopped after a while. I would think of a word, give the definition, and then go the flickr.com and find a fun picture by typing that word into the search box. So, get used to it. It's my fun Friday thing to do. Ok, sooo todays word is...ambient.
