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.

if you don't know the difference between FOOD and DESSERT you are one hurting unit. Everyone in the xshousehold knows you don't GET to eat dessert unless you finish eating your food.

Look, I paid a whole lotta bills today, got chewed out by I don't know how many vp's, busted my butt to push this clusterf%ck in a direction that protects our kids, and I am wiped.

While everyone else played and had non-food ice-cream.

Pardon me, I am PMSing.

And I need a ... no, I don't.

Unless you're having a backwards supper.

Like St Ronnie's mother treats nieces and nephews, grandkids, and greatergrandkids to.

In a backwards meal - you START with dessert. And end up wasting your time eating a salad or other dead green thing.

Robert, your tagline pisses me off.

I have been contributing to this damn site monthly for about five years.

(see - I told you I was PMSing. Sorry, my friend.)

GE, Patton,

May I download that list for posterity? That is PRICELESS!!!

I just happened on to it and now I am spewing bottled water out of my nose and on to the keyboard, which will now, presumably short out before I am done posting ;=)} (I have taken all emergency action I can, but, only time will dry out the contacts, unless this one (Compaq) has sealed tactile switches inside (never bothered to open the darn thing)..........

IMHO, I thought I had heard every Pentagon/Milspec/Govt Sourcing/Procurement joke in existence, but you have made my day with a new one, BRAVO ZULU!!!!! The VK's and I thank you immensely for a good laugh at this time of the evening!!!

Greg

Pay particular attention to 15.

It describes my life.

Sorry to take it out on ya'll.

I see that I'm not the only one up late tonight-there is a damn bass fishing tournament going on and boats are all over the place on the water at the bottom of the cliff shining lights and playing their music, which is driving Husky girl nuts and keeping me awake-hubby is blissfully snoring through it all...

A midnight fishing tournement sounds like a heck of a lot of fun.

Where do I park the boat?

The local marinas take turns sponsoring fishing tournaments all spring and summer here, and they usually start at 11 pm or 12 am and end at 5 or 6 am the following morning-you just drive by water or tow your boat to the marina holding the tournament, pay your fee, launch and run up and down the 24 miles or so of lake casting lines, blasting your stereo and shining bright lights to attract the schools of fish and have a hell of a good time...

Sounds like Heaven.

I have to pick up a boat at Columbia Island this weekend (across from the pentagon), fix it, and spend a day on the river to prove it sea worthy.

Side job.

Sometimes it pays to be a redneck in northern VA, LOL.

I participated in one tournament here just for the hell of it with my former business partner nearly two years ago, but it is just not my cup of tea-I am more fond of stringing trot lines from tree to tree at the bottom of the cliff on my property for catfish or going bass fishing in the daytime on the next cove over from where we live-nightime is for sleeping...

The boats have moved upriver with the lights and noise-I'm going to go to and try to get some sleep...

Stringing lines tree-to-tree...

Sleeping by the water. Listening, with one eye open.

Sleep well.

I just learned a neighbor spotted a bear rummaging in his garbage cans, then he headed into our backyard. No wonder the dogs have caught a scent they want to explore. Now I have to be careful of walking the mutts late at night, just in case they offend our bear. Like is interesting.

Hubby finally got awakened at 4:45 by the alarm he set last night whole still on automatic pilot for work, so I cooked breakfast and he has gone back to bed for awhile-I'm reading a favorite book, and the fishing tournament apparently ended at 5 because all the boats went back downriver toward the dam where the sponsoring marina is located-I'm sure at least one of my neighbors was in attendance and will tell me who won and what they caught...

"bear"

Good grief! Be careful, and don't walk the dogs at night outside the range of your yard/porch lights. I'm really glad we don't have any bears here.

Yikes! You may want to start carrying a big stick. That way, you can trade it for one of your dogs, if the bear grabs them. The bear will be unable to refuse the offer to speak softly and carry a big stick. ;)

Don't you catch more fish when you can sneak up on them? Unless they're teenage stoner fish who are attracted to a party...
