Word For The Day, Friday, 6/3/05



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".

exigency; n

1. The state or quality of requiring much effort or immediate action. 2. A pressing or urgent situation. See Synonyms at crisis. 3. Urgent requirements; pressing needs. Often used in the plural.

concupiscence; n

A strong desire, especially sexual desire; lust

Entymology:Middle English, from Old French, from Late Latin concupscentia, from Latin concupscns, concupscent- present participle of concupscere inchoative of concupere, to desire strongly : com-, intensive pref.; see com- + cupere, to desire.]

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....

Which is the greatest exigence-
Slumber or concupiscence?
My back is sore-- my eyelids lead.
I plan to sleep just like the dead.
My dear, although I love coitus,
First things first, let's have some quietus.

Which reminds me; I solved the Marilyn Monroe question. Marilyn wasn't murdered by Bobby and Jack Kennedy. They were concluding their relationships with her and introduced her to Teddy. She overdosed on pills to avoid having to accept a date with him.

Awriiiiight, Ooookkaay, I'm here already (slouches into room, squinting, drinking coffee, consuming donut ;-)

Well, watched the local FOX outlet this AM as usual, and most of the "biggie" news about the MJ trial and "Deep Throat", in whom I am rapidly losing interest, as said Throat is turning out to be nothing more than a ijdit "Book Pimp" and will, in due course, receive the ZOT right here, ladies and gentlemen, from the awesome hordes of Viking Kitties who, even now, are sharpening their claws and checking the duty roster for the awaited event, eagerly awaiting the EAM from the ZotFather [evil pre weekend VK/Zot grin].

This, of course, leaves us with MJ, a perfect choice for the WFTD. Having been thru an emotionally charged closing argument process, the 'ol MJ is looking pretty well done in by the business, I believe that, if the pix were right, yesterday was a 4? umbrella day, and 2 "Jackson Lifters" needed to convey the alleged connoisseur of concupiscence with young boychildren into the Hallowed Hall Of Justice (HHOJ).

It is gwmoore's opinion that everyone had better prepare for the exigency of some serious medical happenings in those HHOJ should the "Jury of His Peers" return a "GUILTY" verdict. It is also gwmoore's opinion that cameras should be allowed in said HHOJ at the Moment of Truth. It is felt (IMHO only) that it might be mildly entertaining, and wagers (for entertainment only, of course) could be placed on such things as(in no particular order)
(A.) Are the convulsions real?
(B.) How long will the convulsions last?
(C.) Does the defibrillator actually talk and say "shock advised, press the green button"?
(D.) Are there actually batteries in said defibrillator?
(E.) Are said batteries of the "Bunny" (TM) brand?
(F.) Is that O2 in the tank, or the N2O they have been letting MH huff to keep his spirits up?
(G.) Is there any difference in face color between MJ in normal condx and MJ in full arrest?

Ladies and Gentlemen, Place your Bets, Messeurs et Mesdames, faite vaux jeux (Lone Palm, I think I have that right, pse correct me if I am wrong... I really don't have much French ;-)

Anyhow, now that we have covered the exigencies of the possibilities of some real courtroom action and more coverage since the fall of Baghdad, we can now sit back, relax, enjoy our weekend, and wait for the hopeful downfall of the connoisseur of concupiscence.

Off topic.. I want to thank everyone who wished me a happy B'day yesterday, I will get around to thanking everyone personally, over the weekend, so please don't feel left out if I haven't gotten on your ping list yet ;-)....

Everyone, have a great weekend, I will be hanging on here with the rest of the degenerates, keeping one eye on this list and one on the "VK/Zot" threads, as well as doing some much overdue webmaster stuff on the USS America Museum Foundation website, which I have to completely redo...

it will all depend on the state of affairs at the time... but i want a massage, and some sort of wrap if possible. if not, then facial, mani/pedi something. xsteen has this patch of dry skin under her lower lip, eczema-like, for about a month now. i have an appt with the derm for her, but it takes forever to get in there. she was griping about how far off the appt was when i told her and i said, listen you are lucky you can get in during JUNE! i figure i will have her have a facial or something maybe that will help it out in the meantime. xsbrownie, i don't know what they will do on a 10 yo. but she will have to have something also or she will feel left out. the boys will play golf.

xsteen, who finishes her last exam at 11:30 am today, is so dang impossible to please. she is concerned she may be BORED at the homestead. i said LISTEN, you can lay in the sun, do spa stuff, go to the pool, etc. all in beautiful surroundings, if you are bored that is your problem and i don't want to hear peep one about it!

Sounds like a great weekend to me. Boredom wouldn't enter the pic, but then, I'm not a teen! I think xsbrownie should go for a mani/pedi. David's 10 y.o. niece had a french mani last weekend for the wedding, and she thought she was all that!

this patch of dry skin

In his copiuous free-time, my oldest boy has produced what he proudly believes is the world's largest flake of dandruff. (About the size of a nickle.)

yes i think xsbrownie would like that very much. she has been to the salons with me and sees what they do and then she likes to put lotion on my feet at home and pretend that she is doing a pedicure. of course she is ticklish as all get out and will be squealing like a small pig when they do her feet!

xsteen's idea of fun is SHOPPING, and i am sure they will have a few little shops there.

This annoys me because the next trial I wanted to see was every one of his victims' parents being charged with child endangerment.

I'm having to coach a coworker. Today is his 5th wedding anniv, and he hasn't purchased a gift for his wife yet. They have dinner reservations, but he'd better go shopping today at lunch! By the way, not only is this his 5th, it is their 1st anniv since the birth of their 1st child.

he needs something decent for 5 years! xshub is going to hork me off i think. he knows i think 20 is significant, and he is pooh-poohing it, saying 25 is significant, 20 isn't. he also said he has ordered the garden fountain that i had mentioned wanting, as an anniversary gift. i said divorce proceedings will be initiated instantly....

i think he was just yanking my chain with it, i said it was not remotely appropriate for a 20th anniversary. he knows what i want, but it costs a fair amt, so i won't hold him to it. he seems to come through on anniversaries that are NOT as noteworthy, i guess just to be perverse. we are going to do the furniture shortly, so even though that won't be considered annivesary gift (bc that would TOTALLY P me O. don't try to call something we were going to do anyway, a GIFT for God's sake!) it would ameliorate him not going for the big anniverary gift this go-round.

Notice I said "Good morning"? Usually I'm in during the afternoon. But here I am, downing coffee & a muffin. Apparently the exigencies of my job force me to come in early and forgo my usual concupiscent late hours.

Morning!



http://www.shreveporttimes.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20050525/NEWS01/505250319/1002/NEWS
Earlier this month, McDonald told the House Appropriations Committee he would have to declare financial exigency and lose up to one-fourth of the medical school faculty if proposed budget cuts went into effect.
"I am sure we are not going to have to take any kind of financial exigency at the medical school," McDonald said. "We still have needs, but we are better off than we were."




I guess "financial exigency" doesn't sound as dire as "financial emergency".

Exigencies prohibit me from looking up anything else to contribute.

We know exactly what the problem is - but because of the rain the only thing colbreeze could do was anchor down some heavy plastic up there to try and divert the water.......it has helped. The dripping through the kitchen ceiling has stopped - but I am still mopping up water in the family room..it's coming from the base of the wall..........
