Word For The Day, Tuesday, March 6, 2012
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".
1. a small lie; fib.
2. pretentious nonsense.
[17901800; origin uncertain]
Oh, THIS ol’ thing? I saw it in the window and just HAD to have it!! -—Carol Burnett
Let’s not get carried away now. The show was amusing for its time, but did spawn “Mama’s Family,” one of the worst, schlockiest excuses for a sitcom ever.
Sorry, I had long since forgotten about that show. I only remember watching the originals in reruns after school. Mama’s family was not funny, and depressing, to boot.
and what sort of magic act will be called into play to save the day for Obams if it looks even close. His friends tanked the economy in ‘08 to pull that last caper off.
Have you been watching “Life’s Too Short” on HBO? The pilot was just OK, but last week’s 2nd episode with Johnny Depp was hilarious. Haven’t seen this week’s show yet.
He asks the rich to share a little
But taxes rise if your class is middle
Iran goes nuke while his thumbs just twiddle
Can republicans solve this Marxist riddle?
*What are the odds that a word would rhyme exactly with taradiddle? My (ten-year) younger brother started playing the drums when he was five. I can recall his basic lesson on the paradiddle. link
Back in Drum Corps days, the drummers had rudimentary exercises. The most basic was a ‘Paradiddle”: R-L-R-R L-R-L-L (over and over again).
Then double Paradiddles: R-L-R-L-R-R L-R-L-R-L-L
And Triples: R-L-R-L-R-L-R-R L-R-L-R-L-R-L-L
Nothing to do with this word other than: it rhymes. Really. No taradiddle.
If we knew that, we’d have better jobs consulting. ;-)
I figure a summer of race riots followed by shocking revelations about Mormonism’s checkered racial history.
my lib friend at work has said she’s been getting emails asking for $ from the obama campaign. since she’s not given, they are now demanding an explanation.. actually a survey questioning why no cash thus far, wanting to know are you waiting for a repub candidate to see if it’s necessary, or what? have you decided to not EVER give?
my mouth is agape in admiration for you, truthy!
Had she donated in the past?
look at you and truthy with all the DRUM knowledge!! i’d never heard that word before, paradiddle.
i assume so.
No I saw info on it and wasn’t interested
What about padiddle?
You’re not a Gervais fan, I guess.
sounds contrived. what parent thought that up on a cross country road trip to pass the time?
You never played with your siblings?
good times. good times.
