Word For The Day, Tuesday, 5/17/05
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".
turbid·ly adv. turbid·ness or tur·bidi·ty n.
1.Having sediment or foreign particles stirred up or suspended; muddy: turbid water.
2. Heavy, dark, or dense, as smoke or fog.
3. In a state of turmoil; muddled
Entymology: [Latin turbidus, disordered, from turba, turmoil, probably from Greek turb.]
Rules: Everyone must leave a post using the Word for the Day in a sentence.
The sentence must, in some way, relate to the news of the day.
The Review threads are linked for your edification. ;-)
Practice makes perfect.....post on....
That about sums it up.
It seems we inadvertently contributed to the problem.........I heard this wild popping sound as the last piece of equipment came through and went to see what the noise was. The blade of the mower caught what looked like a big piece of heavy plastic and shredded it all over the place.
I went out to clean up the mess and OOPS found it to be the wrapper from the insulation hubby installed in the attic. He must have missed one of the bags wehn he went to the dump and it blew into the ditch.
That bothers me, because I am such a fanatic about people who toss stuff out car windows. I actually once stopped the car and made a passenger go back and pickup the cigarette he had tossed out the window. There is a reason for ashtrays.........
That photograph is amazingly..... symmetric.
Some trashy women change into tight clothes and pick up all the loose dirty men find, whom they then clean out of all the change they can sweep up out of their pockets. They're called streetwalkers.
Ti, on the other hand, walks outside with strange men and cleans up all the streets she can find of loose change she finds in dirty pockets filled tightly with trash.
You're strange - there is no other word to describe you.
another gold star today, jack! A++++ did you go back to receive all your accolades from yesterday's masterpiece?
I sure did, xsmommy:
Thanks all for all the props and kind words!
Yes, it's "from my lips to God's ear", January 24th.
The dems are going to lose anyway you look at it. Even if the Media's going to bend over backwards to make it appear that they've won something.
President Bush will get Bolton in the U.N. and maybe not all, but most of his Judicial nominees. Since what the Left considers "mainstream", most see as abhorrant or down right goofy.
Turgid was my word a couple of weeks ago, Patton. LOL!
I'm supposed to wear these hand braces when I type, but you can't type with them on. Catch 22. Still waiting to hear from the neck surgeon at Cedar's. Everything takes so long, unless you're having a heart attack.
I need a replacement for a couple of months. That's the gist of this post. I still want to be subbie when I can type again, but I really and truly can't do it now. The pain afterwards is just too bizarre. I can't take pain pills which makes it even worse.
I do care for all of you and WFTD. But I have to heal myself.
i nominate arghy to be your sub for subbie!~
Take care of yourself and get well soon Slip
Arghie doesn't get to work until 11 AM Eastern time. And the insomnia can't be relied on, and sometimes I'm in a rush to get the bus in the morning.
well that is a sorry lot of excuses, isn't it? ; )
One day a week is all I can handle as subbie/janitor who unlocks the door. Perhaps one of the other croqs could help out.
i can't do all 4 days. i can do my two and occasionally help someone else out, but i can't commit to 4.
Who else used to sub on occasion and might be willing to become a regular fill-in?
SG subbed a bit, but i don't know if she could fit us in amongst her myriad OTHER JOBS... ; )
Hey, it was early. LOL.
As the jewish sailor said when he spotted a heavy sperm whale, "Oil weigh!"
(I was joshing you about streetwalking the neighborhood picking up all the loose trash and stray cash you found.)
No, wait. That doesn't sound right....
Yeah, right, dream on, Mr. Lowest Circle of Hell!
good luck at the doc's, i hope he finds out why it is paining you so, arhgy. and you are not going anywhere yet, so just cool your jets. God isn't done with you yet : )
Slippie I feel for you, and I hope you get better very soon.
I only subbed once before and I just took on duties of hostess of another thread starting this Friday...so I be out.
Sorry to be so late, but today is PA Primary Election Day, mrsgwmoore is home from work, and that makes for a mandatory "honeydo day" under supervision, of course. I have just finished installing new venetian blinds in the LR, after the duty VK had destroyed one of the old ones ;-)... Also, prodded into "cleaning up"..GRRRRRRRRRRRR.....
We also, dutifully, voted, no real important offices to fill in the local precinct here, just voted for the District Justice who mrsgwmoore works with (have to make sure she stays a Judge LOL)....and voted against the "incurring 650K of debt for cleaner air", basically, because I won't vote for anything Rendell wants, or support envirowhackos....
OK, an attempt to use the WFTD in a useful context...Well, let me think..... "The incredibly turbid thinking by "Newsweek" garbazine, concerning the alleged "flushing of the Koran" incident at Gitmo during an "interrogation" and their subsequent "withdrawal" of said story is a sad picture of the turbidity of the MSM coverage of all events which have happened since 9/11/01. Had things turned out like they SHOULD have, posters would have been on every spare space "KNOW YOUR ENEMY". Profiling would not only have been OK, but mandatory, and we would have been spared this insane turbid "look the other way syndrome" now existing at airports. We would have had clips of the 9/11 disaster, with "God Bless America" playing on all major networks as PSA's, and to open and close broadcast days, the whole attitude would have been, in fact, like WWII, when "Remember Pearl Harbor" was a battle cry, and we damn well knew who our enemies were, and were not PC Police forbidden to speak the truth.
In a less turbid environment, on 9/12/2001, PC would have been thrown out the window, orders would have been issued, keys turned, and large portions of real estate, important to said terrorists as shrines, turned into slabs of green glass, suitable neither as shrines, nor terrorist havens. The word would have been passed that if more acts were committed, more slabs of real estate would become green glass (Trinitite, after all, does look rather nice)....
Sorry for the rant, but the turbid waters not only allegedly flush religious texts, they also apparently flush brains, brains of reporters, who put Americans at risk by publishing this type of trash. Since this "could cause severe harm by disclosure to forces of the United States", this fits the definition of the classification of TS, therefore, Newsweek's action makes them guilty of Treason. IMHO they should be so charged. It is time to flush away the turbidity, and show some spines. Let us begin to face our problems squarely, and thus fight them on a level playing field.
Greg ( rant mode - select "OFF" position)
My brooding, turbid thoughts stem from lack of sleep, helped little by my muddy, turbid coffee.
I can do one day a week, if you need me. But I may have to let the students switch papers and grade their own work. Can we trust them? ;)
we need you, we need you! arghy, SG will take one day and you can take one day. you two decide which will work better for yunz. SG do you still have the template and roll call? so i will do Mon & Tues, Vast will be Weds, and SG and ARGHY will take Thurs and Friday. does that sound ok to everyone?
Get to bed early tonight, Poochy! that's your homework!! A+++
ITA with all of your rant A+++ and green glass would have been the best thing that could have happened to that place.
Still w-a-i-t-i-n-g on that download. Good gosh, if I had dial-up, it might take a week!
* Golf is an honorable game, played by mostly honorable people; no referee is needed
* Golf doesn't have one or more of its players in jail every week
* Golfers don't kick dirt, throw bottles, or curse when a bad play is made
* Golfers get paid in direct proportion to how well they play
* Golfers don't get a per diem or 2 airline tickets when traveling to the next event
* Golfers don't hold out for more money because another player got a better contract
* Taxpayers do NOT pay for the courses golfers play on
* Nobody covers your mistakes or backs you up
* Golf gives more money to charity in 1 year than the NFL gives in 2 years
* You can watch golf live all day for $25 or $30; a Super Bowl ticket will cost you (at LEAST) $350 - $1,000
* A golfer can't fail 70% of the time and still make $9 million a year, as opposed to a .300 hitter in MLB
* Golf does not change its rules to please players or fans
* Golfers have to compete under different conditions every week
* Golfers keep their clothes on when being interviewed on TV
* Jack Nicklaus, Byron Nelson or Arnold Palmer (even at the heights of their careers) would gladly shake your hand and say "Pleased to meet you"; Jose Canseco, at the height of his career, wore a t-shirt that read "Leave Me Alone".
* Golf courses don't ruin the neighborhood
* Tiger Woods can hit a ball more than twice as far as Barry Bonds
* You can take a picnic lunch to most golf tournaments; try taking a soda into any taxpayer-built stadium and you'll be asked to either throw it away or leave
The article came out in the paper and although I am quoted I cannot share as it is not on-line, it's in the local community section. At least they did not make me look like an idiot. ;)
I have to forward that to our PE teachers since I spent two days this week with them, teaching golf to the elementary students. They'll love it.
Okay-I hurried as fast as I could, considering that I had to put away 2 1/2 weeks worth of groceries-
If we ever need a reminder
That the 'rat party is fond
Of outdated, murky thinking
Like some turbid stagnant pond
Just take a look at their syncophants
Newsweak and all that bunch
Whose blabbing caused death and injury
Over a false and frivolous hunch
Or take a look at their leader
The ever-screaming Howard Dean
His rhetoric appeals to the unwashed-
Is it any wonder which way they lean?
Between bolshevik leaders and the MSM
And ideals against the common grain
It won't be long till the 'rats are known
As the party of the insane
Are you series?? You'll be HUGH!
I could sub one day a week, if someone will walk me through it the first time (I'm a virgin). I'd have to open the classroom early before I leave and grade work after I got home though, so I wouldn't be able to tell for sure if anyone copied someone else's work...
No, no-not THAT kind of "put away"-I meant put away the stuff in the freezer, pantry, fridge, etc-I'm not very big for my height-where would I put all that food?
The doc doesn't have my CT scan results yet, Canaduh you know. He's talking about sending me to a neurologist.
I'm about an inch too short for my weight. 8=]
Wanna trade some parts and pieces?
I've got about 2" - 3" inches of height left over after I've used up all of my wasteline....
Can't even find kakkkiiii or jeans that fit any more. Anybody got a few sets of 31-34 trousers laying around?
(At least my FDT drill uniform from A&M still fit at the last (25th) class reunion.)
ummmm...xshub has been known to act badly when he hits a bad shot. up to and including wrapping a golf club around a tree.....
I suspect some underlying domestic strife.... (8-o
Ya suspect a turgid affair is/was the source of da problem??
Or a lack of rigidity in da affair?
Did bad language accompany the turdgid-laden vocal response to his poor lie on da course?
Perhaps we should wash out his mouth with DG's soap.
