Today is word day, à la Chic&Charming:
v. trounced, trounc·ing, trounc·es
1. To thrash; beat.
2. To defeat decisively.
3. The word that comes to mind having spent an entire Saturday in lab.
Today was the first day all week when it's been warm enough to not require a wool hat: "By the end of the day I was trounced (or should I say thrashed) by the experience."
