Word For The Day, Monday, 6/28/12
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".
1. incarceration or imprisonment (often used in the phrase durance vile ). 2. Archaic . endurance.
Etymology:From French durance (duration), from durer (to last), from Latin durare (to last), from durus (hard). Earliest documented use: 1513
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....
Here is my example with WFTD.
Please God, let Obams enjoy a durance vile, and let it begin SOON.

No pushing at the door please!
is today the day? will we finally know? i’m afraid to get my hopes up.
Personally, i’m dying to know, hope we find out today and hope it’s an utter repudiation. Professionally, i’m dreading it, because i have about 15 cases pending in various courts of appeal, being held in abeyance pending this decision, and they are going to cascade one way or the other once this comes down and create a massive amount of work for me.
I figure it’s gotta be the grand finale, so Wednesday or Thursday.
I love it when Rick Santelli and Dennis Miller and Mark Steyn durance.
They were big in the 80’s
A three person tango?
Sorry, that was bad...
i tend to think so too, but we will know within an hour and a half or so i guess. at least it’s not the kind of thing that ties up the entire day.
A+++ “what’s love got to do with a little menage....” a huge dollop of extra credit who can place that quote.
Hungry like the Wolf. A+++
Should’ve put Amanda Tapping into the mix...
A+++ go to the corner ; )
How much longer can you endure this durance from SCOTUS?
Eric Holder needs twenty in durance vile
Keeps offering Congress insurance, while
He lies in their faces
Profanes and disgraces
Our country, power procurance style
A+++ prob a few more days.
Thanks, I will keep it open, but i expect to be in a meeting when 10 oclock rolls around, so i doubt i will be seeing it the minute it comes down.
see i knew sending you to the corner wasn’t really punishment bc YOU LIKE IT! ; ) Thermos is being passed about the back row, help yourself.
Twitter is going mintues with no tweets, class is quiet. Everyone in br or praying for the HC decision. AZ could come up this morning, too. Just minutes now till ten.
That’s funny. I just talked with the Winston Wolf of the GOP yesterday.
Some might find incarceration with Erica bearable...
A+++ nero fiddled; obama golfs.
i was just about to ask WHO’S SHE, when i saw your tagline ; ) A+++
Saturday morning, while on call, I was reading a legal thriller. It was just reaching the climatic ending.
A little 90yr old lady had fallen, ended up going to the ER. As we rode along she entertained me with all the places she had traveled...Germany, Hawaii...she mentioned her former DIL moved there after the divorce and flew her over for a visit. She said her name was Pam, then she mentioned that she was famous and I might have heard of her. She said she was an author. I then asked her if, by chance, she was talking about Perri O’Shaughnessy. (a pseudonym for two sisters who write books together) She said yes, she did. I told her I was reading one of her books when the tones came over. She told me when she got home, she would call her and have her send me an autographed copy of one of her books. She’s 90, so I won’t hold my breath, but that was cool.
I did know this author had ties to my hometown, but did not know what they were. She apparently lived here for one year while still married to the woman’s son.
I dunno who it is - but serving a long sentence together is always an awesome way to get to know each other...
Thursday. I’ll need to start searching for a suitable WFTD, not that anyone will be able to load FR.
You will have to choose, not knowing which way it goes.
If I needed a nom de plume, it would be Patty O’Furniture.
But we all know you are willing to do extra work to end this abomination!
The answer to “Who’s Irish and stays outside all the time?”
that’s so cool!!
“...and stays out all night?”
the work will be the same no matter which way it goes, the fact of a decision is what will precipitate the work. basically i have all of it just sitting there floating. i have several major substantive things due in the meantime, but there will be an inundation on top of it with the ACA cases.
Yes!!!! Score me an error on that one; that’s for making it better
I think I lost my old barf jif.
I have it on good authority that she didn’t go down, “all the way”
to disgusting to even contemplate.
the blatency boggles the mind. they are truly INCAPABLE of seeing beyond their little bubble of self-interest.
Kind of creepy how he looks blue in the beginning of that gif. I think he should be red.
