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.

Why not kill two birds with one stone? Try this.

Place 8-10 strips of bacon on a rack over a half-sheet pan and place into a COLD oven. Turn the oven on to 400. When the oven reaches temperature set the timer for 15 minutes.

When done, remove the pan and allow to cool. You will have perfectly flat bacon strips that are prefect for BLT sandwiches and beautifully clear bacon grease that you can pour off. If you want more flavor, a light scrape of the pan will remove the fond.

Beatings not answer - just play same game. I mean - who can blame Reid for his behavior; if even half the rumors about him are true, I'm amazed the man (using term loosely) can even walk.....

Vague references and unsubstantianted general accusations were the point XS - let the mind fill in the voids about Reid. Turnabout, fair play; that kinda thing

Dear All Y'alls,

My hands are really bad today. I'll set up the classroom right now. But typing is painful. Can someone just get a dictionary and go for it?

First, thanks for the complements (gw scrapes feet, looks at ground, etc etc.) I had NO idea I was writing a screenplay LOL. (OPNOTE; I do believe that the 2 women who saved me from myself are now seeking counsel to sue for a major percentage/royalties, creative control, in case said screenplay gets picked up by a (conservative) producer ;-)

I was just setting out to put down some bio to explain an incident, kind of like an engineering "Trip Report". A SCREENPLAY xs???? I am amazed (LOL)...

OK, onward to the proposal.. I have to dig it out from where it resides, but I believe the DTG (Date-Time Group) is somewhere in early October, 1968, or thereabouts. I forget the filing time (DTG's show the message precedence, date,, the Zulu Time [UTC/GMY] and the month/ year, thusly, and I will use the time right now, on this post, and make it "Priority" precidence (there are Routine(R), Priority(P), Operational Immediate(O), and Flash (Z) which, of course, causes all sorts of frantic activity.) Sot if this post were a msg, the header would look something like:

PP FREEREPUBLIC
DE GWMOORE (whatever msg number it was)
P 131302Z MAY 05
FM GWMOORE
TO XSMOMMY
ROBERT A COOK PE
TEXAN 5
BT(break)
UNCLAS(unclassified)
SUBJ; REPLY TO PING THIS DATE
(rest of message)
BT
NNNN (end of msg indicator)
(I left out some carriage returns/ line feeds before the "NNNN"

Now, of course, this would have included some esoteric call signs, routing indicators, etc, etc, and is in the style when mechanical teletypes were in use, where one always put 2 Ok that's the skinny on the date of the proposal, and a leasing in communications 101, Teletype Procedure:Message Format :-)

Now we will see who was first [ large grin}

these macho aerospace jagoffs

All I can think of is the movie "Top Gun" and the reaction after the fly-by where the guy spilled his coffee.

Jennifer Wilbanks was an easy 34B. Give me a challenge.

Like Uma Thurman who changes from a 36B to a 36C, whenever she has her period, or Gweneth Paltrow, who changes from a 32A to a 32B, whenever she doesn't have her hand down her throat. Or Denise Richards who went from a 34C to a 36DD when she was pregnant. Or Soliel Moon Frye, who went from a 38DD to a 36C after a breast reduction, or Courtney Thorne-Smith who went from a a 32DD to a 34C, with yoga.

Challenge me!
