adverb vs adjective

I have noticed several times that Greek uses an adjective while it has to be translated as an adverb.
I assumed that the Greek adjective then functions as an adverb. According to the note on line 77 of the Iliad in Pharr, this is not the case.
Line 77 reads as follows: h)= me/n moi pro/frwn e)/pesin kai\ xersi\n a)rh/cein.
The note reads; "observe that the Greek uses the adjective where the English idiom would ...

Pharr section 165 line 6

I don't know why I keep having questions doing a review, I should have it all figured out by now...(just kidding.)
I can't figure out the form of e)da/mhsan If it is a aorist it would have been e)da/masan would it not? So what is it?

silly t-shirt

I'm trying to help design a t-shirt for our group's toga party... if "nunc est bibendum" translates roughly as "now we must drink", how do I say, "now we must vomit"? My verb book doesn't have the gerundive for vomo, vomere... I guess they thought we'd never need that word! Thanks in advance.
