Word For The Day, Tuesday, April 17, 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. to explain away; extenuate; gloss over (usually followed by over ).
2. Archaic to make glosses; comment.
3. Archaic flattery or deceit
4. Obsolete a specious show
[12501300; Middle English < Old French gloser < Medieval Latin glossāre; see gloss2 ]
One of Olive’s favorite words.
Some kinds of violence and racism are blithely glozed over by the media.
No youtubing at work, but it must be hard to lampoon Biden.
They still play that drunk Yinzer lady at the St. Paddys day parade slobbering all over Biden as a promo on the newstalk station here.
it is hilarious, but mostly because it all sounds so believable coming from him. I can see him saying all of it and in a dead serious tone.
For many things I would oppose,
Out politicians substantially gloze,
Though everyone may know it,
I’m merely a poet,
And I don’t delve too far into prose.
Wasn’t that the hell-hound from “Ghostbusters” — Glozer the Glozerian?
wouldn’t this have all been much more simple had everyone kept their original equipment??? i mean, all the appending and excizing in order to couple could have been foregone to accomplish the same end. think of the $$$avings.
do we believe that he didn’t realize he was on air at the time? i have seen tweets from him this AM full of mea culpas.
Holy moley, I hadn’t seen that yet. Seamus Johnston. More like Shameless Johnson.
Beckel was saying the other day how all his drug use had blown out his “filter” on appropriate words.
The problem is when this sort of language is used regularly and part of someone’s normal vocabulary, is that it pops out often. It is not so much a surprise but an indicator of how often it is used.
Sorry, but Weber should have gotten suspended.
I don’t buy that. I use the word and it’s never popped out inappropriately. xshub uses it a heck of a lot more than i ever have and he’s never had it happen either. I’m also not sure what sort of effect drugs have on word filtering. I think he’s just haphazard and doesn’t care. reckless behavior without regard to consequences seems to be his pattern and he’s walking a line with Fox and knows it.
that was the consensus at my house.
No he shouldn’t. I explained the facts about it yesterday and Shanny had all the video at his disposal. As a former RW who knows Zetterberg as a teammate and has played against Weber, he called it the right way.
but back to the Pens, Neal and Asham damn well better get suspensions, if Craig Adams got one for hair pulling! Asham is a criminal IMO for what he did to Schenn and for the Beagle hit a few months back. Neal i think lost control of himself, but isn’t a bad guy. In fact,as they said in that article, having been seen on intl TV pulling another man’s hair might be punishment enough for the cerebral one ; )
What about Franzen spearing Legwand on the bench? Penalty, fine, suspension? Nothing.
The facts about how he slammed a guy’s face into the glass twice?
Look, a Penguin cross checks a guy in the neck, then punches him in the back of the head as he lies on the ice. That’s not defensible.
Neither is slamming a guy’s head into the glass.
Adams got suspended for starting a fight 18 seconds too late, not for hair pulling.
The NFL has the right policy on hair: it’s part of the uniform.
If you don’t want your hair pulled, then get a man’s haircut. Like Seamus Johnston.
Two wrongs don’t make a right.
But three lefts do.
Watch the video, read the report.
Listen to the 911 tapes, etc. etc.
I hate hockey homework. ;-)
Write up your lab report, with graphs, yadda, yadda, ROR!
was that Caps game with the masks on last night? how did that go?
check your email, i just forwarded you what xshub sent to the Caps guy he deals with for the season tix on this very issue. The Caps lost by one goal at the very end of the third period.
Sunny and 72, and not likely to get warmer than the high 70’s...
As I trim a bid to the bone
To try and make a few bucks
Deja vu happens on TV again
Reminding me how it all sucks
Carter deux is blabbing about
Solar and such saving the day
Laying on the gloze and pretending
That oil and gas will go away
Get used to the high gas prices-
Just don’t drive so much instead-
Yeah right, Obama Carter wannabe-
I’ll just turn off the TV instead...
I could almost close my eyes and believe I was hearing Carter without the suthrin’ accent-that 30+ year old pig is still a pig no matter how much lipstick you put on it...
It was 82 yesterday — the warmest since last September. Back into the 40s by this morning. You go to sleep with the window open and wake up halfway through the night to close it.
It was 49-50 this morning-I not only had the windows open, but the ceiling fan on, too. When I got up, I just left all as it was and went about my morning chores with a flkeece throw and a cup of coffee-it is now a comfortable 70 here at the computer in the kitchen alcove.

Priceless. Glad that prank failed, sorry your team had to lose to accomplish it.
We had a toasty 85 here yesterday. Too hot to go out walking.
You’d never survive in South Texas.
What a difference geographic location makes-85 is lovely walking weather-not too hot until it gets into the 90’s here...
I don’t usually watch Fox at night, but I caught Beckel dropping the f-bomb on Fox last night-he apparently wasn’t aware the break was over and they were back on air. I think Fox must pay him and a few others to make the left look really bad-Tamara Holder and that smarmy Alan Colmes come to mind.
It’s a pretty sweet gig. He’s just got to mouth the day’s lefty platitudes and then chuckle when everyone humorously chastises him.
Oh, I would thrive. I would not wear long pants, shoes, socks to go walking at the height of the heat. I would walk early or late or in an air conditioned mall, or in my pool like I do up here all summer. I was fool enough to go out yesterday with long pants on right when temps peaked. I went back out just before dusk and it was perfect.
