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”.

Eldritch

Adjective

    Strange or unearthly; eerie.

[Perhaps Middle English *elriche : Old English el-, strange, other; see al-1 in Indo-European roots + Old English rce, realm; see reg- in Indo-European roots.]


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....

I saw you last night when the #ObamaDogRecipes was trending. I couldn’t stop laughing long enough to reply to you. At one point 100 tweets popped up in seconds.

Burge is killing it today.

A Happy Meal!

I haven’t seen it yet since it’s been nonstop hockey on TV here and I am still waiting for season 2 of Downton Abbey from my library. A long list of holds were in front of me. Great characters and I do love Maggie Smith.

As soon as season 2 of Downton Abbey is on Netflix for streaming, I’m all over it.

I didn’t see the recipes, but I didn’t look at the article-but maybe a close eye should be kept on the first dog, Bo...

As the economy grows darker,
So do Obama’s eldritch speeches-
Now they seem to be directed
To only idiots and leeches

They don’t have a single clue
To what “speculation” might be-
They may even think its something
That they should get for free

Too bad that Florida in 2000
Didn’t make such fools take note-
Instead, we’re still a country with
Some people too clueless to vote

A+++

I love the Dogflap. Liberals should just roll over and laugh about it, they can’t win this one.

I don’t know. DVDs are so last decade. If I can watch it on Netflix in my home or anywhere my PC is (in the US, anyway) why collect shiny discs?

Certain DVDs I like to watch frequently, I have copied onto a hard drive and they travel with me that way.

I just checked Netflix. Season 2 not available yet. Noticed the adjectives used to describe the show: “Cerebral, understated.”

Well DVDs might be “last decade” but I’ve been watching Season 2 for months now and you are still waiting. ;^)

And an impressive display of “staving off” it was!

45 goals combined in 4 games! It’s like an all-star game with violence.

(And you can apparently cross-check Cooke at least 5 times in a row without being called for anything.)

Those two teams are nothing if not entertaining! Pens have a steep hill to climb needing to win 3 more, whereas Flyers only need one.

All the Penguins need to do on Friday is win one game.
