Word For The Day, Monday, 8/10/09
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".
Coming before; preceding. Expectant; anticipatory.
Etymology: Latin praeveniēns, praevenient-, present participle of praevenīre, to precede : prae-, pre- + venīre, to come; see gwā- in Indo-European roots.] pre·ven'ient·ly adv
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.
Will terming dissenters "unamerican", be prevenient to placing them in re-education camps?
Review Thread One: Word For The Day, Thursday 11/14/02: Raffish (Be SURE to check out posts #92 and #111 on this thread!)
Review Thread Two: Word For The Day, Tuesday 1/14/03: Roister
Review Thread Three: Word For The Day, Tuesday 1/28/03: Obdurate
No pushing at the door please!
up and at ‘em, everyone.
I am thinking more like:
Prepare for the prevenient relocation of un-American dissenting mob members to reeducation camps, where they will learn to worship TOTUS and its reader.
“Will terming congressmen “unamerican” be prevenient to replacing them in 2010/2012?
i think you are right, i am thinking i didn’t have that right in the example. please excuse me as i have been out of the ofc for a week and am trying to post a thread and make calls, sort out mail etc! A++
Hey, it is early. I am amazed I was able to remember where to PUT an adjective (LOL).
Folklore tells us of the prevenient calm leading to the storm, but in my case it has been the prevenient storms and now finally true ESVA summer...........90degrees at 9am. SHEESH.
i appreciate the correction! i haven’t had more than a few sips of coffee and i am gonna need lots more than that!
Oh Noes! Fishy rumors from xsmommy!!
*Hello, White House Rumorik Kommitar? I am having a very subversive here before me...*
please feel free to post the redneck word of the day on our thread whenever possible! it’s not much different than most homework done by the students herein!
I’m stealing that for sure!
A++ not caring for this humid mess, my own sef.
You have been reported to FLAG!
The internet bandwidth here sucks.
Also, the Hall of Fame game is on right now. Not live, but live for me on NFL Network.
How was the chocolate bathtub?
I see you have gotten “the visit” :)
OK, ist not klar.
Love the tagline.
that’s a GOOD one!!!!
And welcome to WFTD! Would you like to be added to the ping list?
Perhaps she is visiting some Obama ancestry...or whoring about for contributions to some grand memorial to the King-0-Pop.
Who knows? Who cares?
ha! we watched the hall of fame game last night, i wondered what you were doing TV-wise there! there was fox business but no fox news at the Hotel Hershey, but xsboy found it for me on the laptop at channelsurfing.com. he uses it to watch SU games which aren’t televised here and found that it also had news. as long as i could hear it i was fine and they could minimize it and facebook away to their hearts content. 3 facebookers and a hub trying to check his work email and ONE LAPTOP meant i didn’t see much computer time. i could check email and FR on my phone, though.
the Chocolate Spa was fantastic. i had a cocoa massage and a facial. both were great. Did you know that they serve PIEROGIES at hersheypark in one of the food venues?? Mrs T’s is a sponsor of something there also. they also have something called a Pittsburgh sandwich, which i am guessing has the fries on it. The kids did all the rollercoasters, of which they have quite a few. The punchiest thing i went on was the Wild Mouse, which is just like Idewilds, but a bit more extreme, with the hairpin turns etc.
That’s our congresscretin. How surprising. NOT.
A+++ yeah, didn’t figure she was interested in what the riffraff thought of obamacare!
A+++ so how you liking TO as a Bill?
Fries and coleslaw.
I was watching the game, via my buddy’s TV back in the North Hills. But I need to sleep now. The bandwidth here is pretty sucky, especially since this 5-star hotel was just built for the Olymipcs last year. Every so often the video just stops and starts.
I definitly know some other sites are just banned. Like youtube.
Now they want us to stay one more day to finalize paperwork. So I won’t leave till Wednesday at the earliest. If my travel agent gets on the ball, that is. And the latest typhoon hasn’t messed up Tokyo’s schedule too much.
TO’s a great talent and he’ll probably help the Bills win a game or two they wouldn’t have won otherwise.
The fawning all over him by local media and “fans” is already old, though. It’s a sad state of affairs when these types are held up as royalty practically (almost idolatry) — I guess this area is bankrupt more than just financially...
sounds like a barrel o laffs over there! hope you get home soon!
yeah, well at least he’s not a dog-killer... ; )
New taxes, retroactively prevenient
To pay for healthcare (isn’t that con-veeeenient?)
Our Great Kenyan Führer
Has started a furor
And the sheep pray that their masters’ll be lenient
Here and waiting for the pump repair guy-
The prevenient ‘rat reaction-
Calling fellow Americans “thugs”
For disagreeing makes me certain
They’re drinking kool aid or doing drugs
They fear the truth coming out
And are trying to stem the tide-
While in increasing numbers
Their constituents want their hide
The message could not be clearer
But still they seem to doubt-
If they don’t do the peoples’ will
Come 2010 their asses are out
Some states can actually recall senators/representatives-I’d love to see one of them do just that.
