Word For The Day, Day, Date



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".

Old Teddy is so irascible,
A demeanor deemed impassable,
From his quivering chin,
All too well soaked in gin,
Blows a stream of vile gas, et al.

My husband is a really laid back kind of guy, not one prone to be irascible - I have a feeling things are a bit different this morning. Since the school bus came hornblowing and screeching up the road abuot 3 minutes ago - I know must figure his absence is that he took Jax to school himself.

I ran short of soundalikes passable, so rather than being irascible, I decided to try the old catchbucket "et al"!

How's things?

The irrascible Mr. Dean
like some hatefilled angry machine,
filled with venom, bile and spleen
danced across our TV screen
to set us straight on what we have seen:
Osama Bin Ladin had no role in 9/11. Amazing!

About a month. We talk on the cell phone every day or two, but it's not like being home. We may have a good bite on the house in Georgia, though. On the first showing, the people were there for an hour. They're trying to see if they have enough $$ to expand the master suite a little (that's the only criticism they had of the house, evidently).

Keep your fingers crossde, if you please. :)

71 years ago today....

23 May 1934

The irascible Bonnie & Clyde (Mr. & Mrs. Barrow) were shot to death by police in Louisiana. The killing was promptly followed by the customary crawfish boil and fish fry.

4 pregnancies by the age of 16 and the "mother" (I use the term lightly)is blaming the school..........that is disgusting and while I'm normally not a big proponent of it, I believe she should be stripped of parental rights for all three of her "daughters" and their offspring.

Dear Lord...........

Good Morning!

I'm usually only a little irascible.

When I post a rant, I use an irascible inkling.

Or how about this? I remember that show! Spanky and Alfalfa, and all the gang -- The Little Irascibles!

Yep but I feel great. I've lost 10 pounds. My waist went from 35 to 32. I call my program, workacise. It is much more effective than deskercise.
