Word For The Day, June 12, 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. Usually, fantods. a state of extreme nervousness or restlessness; the willies; the fidgets (usually preceded by the )
2. Sometimes, fantods. a sudden outpouring of anger, outrage, or a similar intense emotion.
[ 183540; apparently fant ( igue ) (earlier fantique, perhaps blend of fantasy and frantic; -igue probably by association with fatigue) + -od ( s ), of obscure origin; see -s3 ]
They say Commerce Secretary, John Bryson had a seizure while driving Saturday. I think he might have just fantod due to skipping breakfast that day. Either way, I hope he’s OK.
Is that any relation to Sha Na Na?
My contractor friend that I work for was saying this morning that he is beginning to sense a watergate moment...
Will Holder be unraveling soon?
As committee members are nipping
At his heels-he’s got the fantods
And his composure may be slipping
His defense this morning seems to be
To just defend himself by blaming
Everyone from Bush to the victims
Of this failed crime-sting gaming
But this fiasco has gone further
Than foolish Holder ever reckoned-
Now, he can only try his best
Not to be Mitchell the second...
I'm actually using the hotel to convert my (pre-travel) twenty-dollar “dollars” to Euro’s.
Only local businesses NOT accepting the Visa and Mastercard and AMEX are the telephone “regargo” (recharging) shops. Funny thing, the nuclear plant also uses “recargo” for their “refueling” paperwork. My access magnetic badge and car pass, for example, are labelled “Recargo” ... 8<)
Here, my AMEX and MasterCard are getting rejected at the ATM’s when I try to withdraw “cash”. Mean anything? Don't know.
I don’t know, it was Italy’s 4th largest bank that has frozen all of its depositors assets and is not conducting ANY transactions. I wondered what Spain was like now that they got their bailout.
Truthy was absent yesterday, probably off visiting one of his various progeny. But had he been here, i feel pretty sure he would have said fantod=schpilkies.
We had a very violent storm rip through here Sunday evening—very localized, small footprint, extremely high winds. Trees were down, which caused power lines to fall. We lost power until yesterday early morning, and internet/tv/phone until mid-afternoon. Several homes were damaged by falling trees, but we were very fortunate and only lost some big branches.
Glad you escaped serious damage!
Of course. He was doing it wrong. 2 guys and a girl.
That is unfortunate because both of them are devout Christians.
She doesn’t come across as terribly bright or devout, unfortunately. We don’t set rules? of course we don’t, God does, and it’s called the Bible. my SIL questioned what sort of church she attends if she is this ignorant of biblical teaching. And apparently she made the calculated call that embracing the Ghey will bring in more fans than it cuts loose.
She grew up Baptist so I’m sure she is well acquainted with the Bible but I think in her profession she comes across a lot of gay folk. I also think she’s a very savvy professional in handling her career. I think she will hear some pushback from this. Her husband helps with Room in the Inn, the program lots of our churches provide during the cold months. He and Shane Doan are Christian leaders on their respective teams and communities and good friends.
