Word For The Day, Friday, May 13, 2005
05/13/05 | xsmommy

Posted on 05/13/2005 5:31:52 AM PDT by Slip18

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.


TOPICS: Word For The Day
KEYWORDS:
Navigation: use the links below to view more comments.
first 1-5051-100101-150151-200 ... 501-510 next last
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.

My hands are like boards. Xs is going to take over, so be nice. Otherwise, my boardlike hands will beat all y'alls over the head. So sue me.

First? Top Ten?

In before the word?

I posted your name as the subbie today, but it wouldn't take it.

Thanks again, xs.

I'll be in later on to make sure the class is behaving.

I like the two posted earlier so much I seldom use others. The old standby, "to ralph" is my usual choice if going shorthand. "Blowing chunks" gets used occassionally, but too often gets met with "Who is Chunks?"

To some, Bolton's too contumaceous
They'd prefer vapid, loquacious
The U.N. is all blather
Save the post for Dan Rather
Or Clinton (no--he's too salacious!)

Calling Ralph on the porcelain phone - LOL! I'm sure my 15yo will like that too. She probably knows it already, because she know everything, way more than me (so she thinks).

Don't let the contumacious students get you down - it's a fabulous WFTD.

going through a rough period with daddy's girl, huh? well my 16.5 yo is actually pretty good, she may admit that i know more, but she will say with her dying breath that she is WAY COOLER than i am. i am cool, but my kids give me zero credit for being cool.

thanks, miss annie! and yes, Poland is great, isn't it? western europe could learn much from their eastern neighbors, were they to extract their heads from their collective behinds.

Ole Reid's words being consternacious,
Including character assassination,
From FBI files comes the intimations.

RE: your fried corn dish

The fried corn sounded really good. I'm so glad you decided to give the bacon grease thing a try. It is also really good for making sausage gravy to go over biscuits, but you might need some time to work your way up to that. In the words of Obi Wan Kenobi to Luke, "You have just taken your first steps in a bigger universe."

I went back and checked my roll (ping list) for WFTD, and found that both of the truant students who appear to have slept through the opening bell on the last two Wednesdays are in fact on the roll and were pinged on post #2 or #3 of the thread.

On Bolton, the dems were contumacious,
In their objections, quite loquacious.
(Voinovich's skull is airy and spacious.)
But the reps--for once--were more tenacious.
Let's hope confirmation is less vexatious!
It's time for the victors to stop being gracious!

I use the grease from the sausage to make sausage gravy, not bacon grease.

I leave a little of the sausage grease, but add bacon grease because the bacon grease enhances the flavor.

Greasing the sausage will oft result in producing sausage gravy; but if done too often it will cut into the ability for makin' bacon.

As I've said, I don't save bacon grease - I also don't cook both bacon and sausage at the same time.

I have contumaciously written you two posts, but the arm braces keeping deleting them. I have no idea where they went. These things are ergonomically correct. Unfortunately, they are Velcro. Everything gets stuck to them.

So sorry to hear about the wooden arms.

Here in Jax the news is all about Brak.

He is making a joint appearance with Donald Rumsfeld today. I would much rather be Rummy's sidekick than SpaceGhost's.
