Word For The Day, Friday, May 13, 2005

Friday, May 13, 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.


Dodgeball Day!

Subbie Slip has given her whip, handcuffs and legcuffs to xs 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.

Miss Slip, I know you and other classmates will be thrilled to learn that there is an NFL ping list. :^) You're welcome.

#@^@# I absolutely love surprises, especially when they cause an account I'm charge of to over budget(and thus taking it out of a different account we don't want to use for this), and when I don't have the bill in front of me.

Some folks are getting an earful soon.....(Sorry. had to vent)

To Beat a Dead Horse . . .



Dakota Tribal wisdom says that when you discover you are riding a dead horse, the best strategy is to dismount.

A recently declassified Pentagon document indicates that people in the Pentagon try other strategies.

Specifically there are 22 separate and distinct strategies that people in the Pentagon try when they discover they are riding a dead horse:



1. Buy a stronger whip.

2. Change riders.

3. Say things like, "This is the way we've always ridden this horse."

4. Arrange to visit other sites to see how they ride their dead horses.

5. Increase the standards to ride dead horses.

6. Appoint a Tiger Team to revive the dead horse.

7. Create a training session to increase riding ability.

8. Pass legislation that declares, " The horse is not dead."

9. Harness several Dead Horses together for increased speed.

10. Declare with a policy directive and operating instruction that no dead horse is too dead to beat.

11. Do a cost analysis to determine if contractors can ride the dead horse cheaper.

12. Buy a commercial off-the-shelf dead horse.

13. Declare that the horse is better, faster, and cheaper dead.

14. Form an IPT to find uses for dead horses.

15. Revisit the key performance parameters (KPPs) for dead horses.

16. Say the horse was procured making CAIV-based decisions.

17. BRAC the horse farm on which the dead horse was born.

18. Promote the dead horse to a supervisory position.

19. Name the dead horse "Paradigm Shift" and keep riding it.

20. Ride the dead horse "smarter," not harder.

21. Call the dead horse "joint" and let others ride it.

22. Ride the dead horse "outside the box."

personal news, even with a nice pic, is not homework, and you have been here long enough to know that. i let ctlpdad get away with it today bc he is new to the class. you know better. ctlpdad, you are now officially on notice that it has to be a current event used with the word to constitute homework. your probation ends today ; ) This rule applies whether or not i am PMSing....

This reinforces my theory that television more than anything else is responsible for the low birth rates in the west.

see you catch on quick. this is all about reverse psychology in this class. NEVER, and i mean NEVER, show your weakness. Patton, learned that lesson the other day. he let slip his monster ego, and the girls in this class hopped on it and pummelled him mercilessly for it. you have to always be on your guard.

OK. I usually try to use my e-mail WOTD in combination with this one, but I don't have the patience to read 150 posts, so if I'm not in the first 20, I ususally don't post. Besides, your students are all so bright, i feel looked over.

Home before 5 and with some nice fresh asparagus to go with my steaks and baked potatoes for dinner, and some money, no less-it is a good day!

Does Hillary ever wonder why
She makes people's teeth itch
Or why some in the 'rat party
Think she's a contumacious bitch

She's trying to re-invent herself-
Now as a conservative she's posin'-
So let's all get some popcorn and watch
Her reaction to David Rosen

Will she treat him to some racial slurs
Like when she lived in the white house
Or will she throw an ashtray at his head
Like she did to her philandering spouse?

Will she she try to put on her nice act
And smile with consummate skill
Or will she greet him with "f*** you" like
The SS says she did to Bill?

post regardless of when you get your homework done. there is no extra credit for getting in the top 20, and if you are intimidated by this group of losers then i feel bad for ya ; ) now that i know where you live, i will send the truant officer to your house looking for you, if you fail to show...

I DO NOT think you want him looking for you...
