Word For The Day, Thursday, May 12, 2005
05/12/05 | Slip 18

Posted on 05/12/2005 5:21:28 AM PDT by Slip18

Thursday, May 12, 2005

In order that we might all raise the level of discourse and expand our language abilities, here is the daily post of “word for the day”. Rules: Everyone must leave a post using the “word of the day”; in a sentence. The sentence must, in some way, relate to the news of the day.


Subbie Slip has her whip, handcuffs and legcuffs today.

The rest of the stuff is locked up in my drawer. I’m just letting all the new students know that we behave as if we were ladies and gentlemen in here. Those two words “as if” can get you an A if you make the subbie laugh.

ZOIC

Adjective combining form
Pronunciation: Zoic
Etymology: [Greek] (zoicos) Of or pertaining to animals


1) Animal: having an animal mode of existence: animal life and action.
2) Of or relating to a (specified) geological era.

I guess we could say Hobbes1 is a tigerzoic humanoid. So sorry, Tiger. It was a low fast ball.

You can use any root word for the “zoic.” Just make it sound like we know what we’re writing.

Good Morning Class. Welcome to School!

RULES: You must use the WFTD in a sentence for an A. For a + after your “A,” you must bring in a link of the word usage or something funny, a poem or some prose that will elucidate the word for us.

If you need to know how to link, come to the Subbie’s desk in the front of the class.

Today is parent/teacher conference day. I must speak to all of your folks and tell them how well you have done in fingerpainting and your exceptional vocalizations. It will take a while, as you might imagine. So behave. I'll be down the hall talking with each and every parent.

The Tigerzoic humanoid is now in class, and has taken his seat in the No. 2 position.

Congratulations!

It's a "combos form." You can make it a prefix or a suffix. Like "Zoicdupa was a friend of mine," but then that would make it a noun instead of an adjective. Just play today.

Hey dig me - I'm teaching the teach stuff! A category of women, into which numerous croquettes fall, known by the acronym MILF - Mothers I'd Like to ...you could probably fill in the "F" part. Sadly, and Mrs Dupa warned me about this, there were MICLFs at the playground with their kids last time I took my daughter there. MICLFs aren't rare enough - Mothers I Can't Legally (same "F").

I surely am not a materzoic person. There are others in class, yes, but the good Lord kept me singular. And I'm sure He had a reason for that. I'd beat all y'alls into submission. I don't think that's legal any longer.

Strange suffix-

If Rosen has has a brain at all
He will go ahead and name
All the many cover-ups
That are hiding the Clinton shame

Tell where all the bodies are buried
And then he'll be heroic
Although he'll be in danger
From Hillary the blackwidowzoic

Now, I've got to go make some money by painting a customer's dining room a hideous color-I'll come to class later...

Shaggy, he of the green T-shirt, always signifies the finding of clues by exclaiming "ZOIC". I think it has something to do with the caninic nature of his best friend, Mr. Doo.

The quadrophenia will go away with time. Cuatrozoic disease does not a last very long.

OMG, I thought you said fingerprinting.

Must have caffiene.

Have you seen the zoicish behaviors displayed at the MJ circus trial?

For some reason, the song "simple kind of life" popped into my head, only this time as "Zoic kind of life.."

"For a long time I was in love
Not only in love, I was obsessed
With a friendship that no one else could touch
It didn't work out, I'm covered in fur

And all I wanted was the simple things
A zoic kind of life
And all I needed was a full moon
So I could be a wolf "


Not very good, but it's what popped into my head..
*sigh*

Jaded, I do my best not to see anything on MJ. If there's a zoic, it's a Jacksonzoic. He's preternatural.

Now you've got me singing John Hiatt songs in my head. Great R&B and he lives in the area. If you ever get the chance, catch his show. For a guitarzoic Indiana farm boy, the guy rocks.

When the teacher only supplies half a WFTD, is her pay cut in half - or do only half the students pay attention?

Good boy! "Softly, I can feel you, softly . . . "

Are the parents going to carnage me? Will I be in a pot of hot water until the flesh falls off? I'm askearedazoic subbie.

Some make an effort super heroic,
To endure grief like an ancient stoic.
With eyes bright and not puffy,
And a nose that's non-snuffy,
Like a stuffed mastadon, Pleistozoic.
