Word For The Day, Monday, 10/3/11
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".
noun 1. any sudden, violent outburst; a fit of violent action or emotion: paroxysms of rage. 2. Pathology . a severe attack or a sudden increase in intensity of a disease, usually recurring periodically.
Etymology: 157080; earlier paroxismos < Greek paroxysmós irritation, derivative of paroxýnein to irritate. See par-, oxy-1 , -ism
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....
“Human rightser” organizations like Amnesty International are engaging in a paroxysm of rage and false moralism, now that the “gay pride” parade in Belgrade has been cancelled due to the activism of Orthodox Serbian patriots!!!!
makes my head explode A+++
The Eagles lie awake at night dreaming of some day being good enough to have as many haters as their in-state rivals.
On Sunday, during a New Yorker Festival event that reunited him with the show’s cast, Hurwitz promised the audience that a film adaptation of the Bluth clan was still in the works — and there’s even a set of nine or 10 television episodes, each focusing on a certain character, that would serve as a curtain raiser to the movie.
Let it be so!
So they finally found the cash in the banana stand?
Blanching is incomplete cooking in boiling water or in hot oil. For example, prior to freezing vegetables like green beans they are often blanched for 2-3 minutes by immersing them in boiling water, then quickly cooled and frozen. Upon thawing less time is required to cook them completely.
The same can be done for foods that are typically deep fried like fried potatoes, or breaded fish patties.
I know you won’t get rich dong it, but you really should be teaching.
Or Ramen noodles.
I’ve never heard of the Nashville Predators. Perhaps I’ll start paying attention. There are lots of things to learn on WFTD.
Woooooooo. Waitaminute! I don't consider our sports teams as being union loving socialists; although all participate in unions, except at the collegiate level. After all, a lot of those payers (especially the Packers) supported W when he was in office. Especially after Kerry came to Green Bay and waxed on about "Lambert" Field.
I have years of practical experience but no formal training. I’ve had exactly 2 cooking lessons in my life - One with Emeril in NO and one in Paris. I cook down home food with a Southern/Cajun/Tex-Mex flair. That’s it. I understand the science and the tools better than most.
Most people under the age of 30 have no idea what goes on in the kitchen. They use the microwave, toaster and the coffee maker and that’s all. They have no desire to learn to really cook for themselves and have never had to do it.
Their grannies and mothers didn’t teach them and they probably never had a Black maid who could cook like Minnie in “The Help.” That’s how I learned.
I don’t just mean cooking. I think you have a natural talent for teaching. You could have done well in academic medicine because you have REAL experience. When I was concerned about my dad’s acute renal failure last month, you broke it down so I could understand, as well as the hospitalist, but with more detail. You don’t just soak up information when you are interested in a topic, you are able to explain it to others, be it cooking, ammo, or medicine. Just sayin’...
I feel your pain, but pre-season anything is pretty much irrelevant.
Hoping foxy knoxy stays in dago slammer.
ROR figured that would get a rise outta you ; )
Why? I’m looking forward to Knox vs Anthony boxing match.
(Celebrity Deathmatch needs to make a comeback.)
