Word For The Day, Monday, 4/30/12
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".
Bemuse;transitive verb CLICK THE WORD FOR PRONUNCIATION
: to make confused : puzzle, bewilder 2: to occupy the attention of : distract, absorb 3: to cause to have feelings of wry or tolerant amusement be·mus·ed·ly \-ˈmyü-zəd-lē\ adverb be·muse·ment \-ˈmyüz-mənt\ noun
Etymology: "to make utterly confused," from be- + muse (cf. amuse), attested from 1735 but probably older, as Pope (1705) punned on it as "devoted utterly to the Muses."
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 think the populace is bemused by what they think they are going to get for free from his “stash”.
are you colorblind? ; )
P.S.His amazing duet on Billion Dollar Babies is better.
We go dancing
Nightly in the Attic
While the moon is rising in the sky....
If I’m too rough
I’m so scared
your little head
will come off in my hands.....
has ANYONE gotten anything free in the past 3 years from his STASH? i suppose hope springs eternal among the grifter class! A+++
Nineteen Seventy F*ng Three.
His sixth album, and it went gold in 73...(and Platinum 13 years later)...Gold, at a time where we were between the Everly Brothers, and Disco.
Just had a funny moment at work.
The lady who works on rights of ways said “do you put the depths in there?” Which caused the IT guy to smirk which cracked me up.
Ya, where is my Obamamoney?
not surprising, woodstock era.
Actually, I caught their hockey game at Outback bar while eating and got hooked. Found out my eldest son is a huge Ranger’s fan, so we were following along and texting him as the game progressed. I actually enjoyed it. Surprise, surprise.
A liberal chick started replying to me on Twitter about HC..she actually believes that the company who provides insurance pays none of the cost and should have no say in the benefits offered. Clueless.
Just spent an hour or so at the local garage getting my studded snow tires off for the summer. Kept trying to edge out, but the owner kept up running complaints about Obama, then is office girl started piping in. He can’t believe the guy has a shot at reelection. There’s two votes he will never get. And she is a young 20 something.
I’m guessing you’ve not heard the song?
sounds like it was written YESTERDAY.
I’m guessing you’ve not heard the song in a while...?
sounds like it was written YESTERDAY.
Here you go Darling.
point is you were surprised it was gold back then, there was a huge market for that sort of music then too.
Do you follow Jim Treacher? @jtLOL ? He’s at it again posting pics of his dog...your kinda dog.
i will look, i hadn’t been following him but have seen retweets. What was the p!$$ing match about between him and Jpod?
Who is @jpod? @jtLOL got going the other night over @jpodhoretz saying the “dog eating” story was manufactured. Jim Treacher is pretty funny. I thought it was a great story to counter Seamus. Funnier, too. Made for a lot of fun on Twitter.
Jim Treacher, aka @jtLOL, broke the story on Obama’s eating dog. He did it on his website and Twitter. I was online when he did it...too funny. It took off immediately.
Jpod is Jon Podhoretz in slang. like JLO, KStew, RobPATS, get with the lingo Ti ; )
there is a closed Twitter account for @jpod was just wondering.
that is funny.
Yes. Twitter has been a blast lately. All dog eat dog. Looks like we have a new hashtag to take over #forward.
No. He and I speak. He is not @jpod. he is @jpodhoretz.
Kamikaze from the Hundredth floor.
Swan Dive to the Street...
Much as I hate to say it, I think the majority of young people are unemployed because they deserve to be-it is bound to be painfully obvious to any employer that their choices from among the young are mostly limited to clueless, shallow and uninformed individuals who don’t know the meaning of the words “creative” and “initiative”...
Good old Sweaty Teddy.
What BS that anyone took his line about being dead or in jail as a threat, when it was clear he was alluding to himself being on either the red list or the blue list.
Among the tricks and sleight-of-hand
From which the ‘rats pick and choose
Is the time honored bait-and-switch
To distract, misdirect and bemuse
Look over here and not over there-
There’s nothing to see-move along
Just go watch some reality show
And don’t look at what is wrong
Michelle Antoinette and Louie Obama
Are dining on lobster and caviar
On your dime almost every time-
Eat your hot dog-see how lucky you are?
I like that bumper sticker! There was actually one little business out here whose owner was very vocal about liking/voting for Obama in spite of the fact that we’re starving out here thanks to gas prices, and continued to preach it all this last winter and early spring to every local customer-until we all stopped going there. That business closed last month-I try not to gloat when I drive by the empty store-the owner is really an otherwise nice person...
Love the tag line.
I agree - and sadly, so many of those kids are from a background of Mommy and Daddy paying for everything anyway so being jobless isn’t a hardship on them, just a long “summer vacation”
If given a choice I would never give my business to any liberal. Nice or not, I would have to think he or she was an idiot to believe the dem line. I can easily side with you on this particular business closing.
Neo, Dave and I are all Non-Liberals...Can we get a shot at your business...? ;-)
And business is good. ;-)
i did not say he was @jpod, now, did i? no, i did not.
Nice one! You’d have to fight my husband for a place in line - he’s been working out of state on a big project so I haven’t seen him much for the past few months!
So there is, in fact, a line? LOL
I’m having technical difficulties this AM, so y’all can just hold in there till I get it fixed.
Oh! You get a “nicely done” too..... but technically, if there was a line it wouldn’t matter - my husband wouldn’t ever end his turn! ;^)
