Word For The Day, Tuesday, March 27, 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. Pathology a benign encysted tumor of the skin, especially on the scalp, containing sebaceous matter; a sebaceous cyst.
2. British a large overcrowded city (esp London in the phrase "the great wen" )
[Old English wenn; related to Danish dialect van, væne, Dutch wenn ]
xshub has been to a range and taken a safety course and tried out various guns, he’s still in need of guidance though. did you win one at your gun bash? i saw a few tweets while i was in Boston, did sarah win something?
My brother-in-law won and picked a 7mm rifle. Sarah won this giant “American flag and eagle head” blanket. It’s like 96 by 79 inches.
My wife won a .40 calber Glock a year ago at one.
If he’s already gone through all that, he should just buy something. He can always buy something else later. They’re like Lay’s. ;-)
Lol when someone says “can I ask you a question” I always say you just did, good day.
Call Emily Miller
I had a brother-in-law who was a jazz musician who used to say that. When something seems like a good plan, I say, “Solid!” Did you have musicians in your family?
New in freverse? Or the mere rumor of a tumor? No,no, I in cyst! Pathology, the study of a path?
Sorry. This wen is just not much to work with. It's like drinking light beer with ice in it, the longer you hang on to it the worse it gets.
Can I ask you a question?
You just did, and without asking first.
that’s ok, you go ahead.
Did you see the picture I tweeted this weekend? I was cleaning out the garage at my mom’s house and found an old newspaper.
It’s the Pittsburgh Sun-Telegraph from March 29, 1936. It’s a special photo edition chronicling the St. Patrick’s Day flooding. It’s pretty fragile, but you can still read it.
no, i missed that. that’s very cool.
Did you see the black friend of Zimmerman on Hannity last night? the entire situation in re this case is a travesty and makes me want to vomit. Zimmerman was not a racist. period. the death is lamentable, the jinned up race pimpery is heinous.
Found one of these, too. I was hoping it was worth something, but the only thing I can find on it is this one person selling one for $10.
Yeah, the friend was first on Fox yesterday morning. I thought I mentioned it yesterday. Very eloquent and intelligent man to have as a friend.
Who? What? Wen? Where? Why?
Don’t you mean “Wo? Wat? Were? Wen? Wy?”
