Word For The Day, Tuesday 1/14/03
1/14/03

Posted on 01/14/2003 6:57:49 AM PST by Bella_Bru

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”. Rules: Everyone must leave a post using the “word of 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....


roister\ROY-stur\, transitive verb:

1. To engage in boisterous merrymaking; to revel; to carouse.
2. To bluster; to swagger

Etymology: Roister is probably from Middle French rustre, "a boor, a clown; clownish," from Latin rusticus, "rustic," from rus, "country."

Good Morning Class. Welcome to School!

When the roister crows at the break of dawn
Look out your window and I'll be gone
You're the reason I'm travelin' on
Don't think twice, it's all right

Repubs may be able to roister
And dems go into cloisture
If as has been said
Racial bias is dead
It's an emotional roller coaster.

Good morning Teach, student.

I can't roust any roister in myself this morning. I just received an email from a dear friend and fellow FReeper SheLion. She lost her beloved husband and also fellow FReeper (whose screen name escapes me at the moment) very suddenly last night.

Her email says he had a massive heart attack at 10pm. She had posted a message to me at about 9:35.

She and her husband were recently highlighted in a Few of FR's Finest thread. while she occassionally popped into the classroom - she's best known for her red-headed fire on any thread dealing with smoking or the state of Maine.

Please join me in prayers for SheLion.

Why’s a Texas girl in Pa?
Why not in Texas did she stay?
Land, desert and the Alamo?
Ain’t nobody could ever ask for mo’

The shores the chores
Sea air big hair

You are the wife
Goodbye Texas sights!

We’re heading for PA!
