Word For The Day, Monday, 10/3/11
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".
noun 1. any sudden, violent outburst; a fit of violent action or emotion: paroxysms of rage. 2. Pathology . a severe attack or a sudden increase in intensity of a disease, usually recurring periodically.
Etymology: 157080; earlier paroxismos < Greek paroxysmós irritation, derivative of paroxýnein to irritate. See par-, oxy-1 , -ism
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.
I am hoping that Herm is the real thing and is not just enjoying a paroxysm of support before burning out. not sure what he said on the shows yesterday but i heard less than favorable things about his performance

No pushing at the door please!
it’s dark and cold, but too bad— it’s time for school.
First day of the new job....I am awake, barely.
About 46 here and the rain is tapering off. Should be better as the week goes on.
Steelers almost stole one yesterday, but Texans rebounded for win. After being manhandled all throughout the first half, the Steelers were lucky to only be down 10.
Good luck to you!
45 degs now, high of 55, and while it was dry on the way in, i guess there are still showers forecast. so are you a stuffed sausage/potato pancake today?
I think it was a trifecta of bad news here.........SU, Bill, and the Yankees tanked.
No, I took it easy yesterday. Saturday I was a buffet-gorging pig.
xshub was insufferable on Sat. between PAROXYSMS of rage while watching it online, he would go out and do errands, come back and see they were still sucking and go off on another fit. xsgirls and i just looked at each other and said, he’s insane. then after it was over, he was a pain in the @$$ to be around bc of the loss. if i could have shot him to the space station, i would have done so, with no return planned!
Have you concluded your paroxysmal pear poaching pecadillo?
My take on Herman is that he is genuine, and the somewhat negative response to some of his candid remarks are due to a paroxysm of liberal outrage that a Black American DARES to oppose them.
oh and i discovered a new follow over the weekend @pittbuzztap for all Pitt news, in case you are interested in my alma mater ; )
A peroxism is what you get from some people when accused of bleach-blonding their hair....
haven’t made it yet, but pears are in season and i have a bunch of them and have goat cheese so was trying to recall how you said to prepare that app. i have never poached anything in my life, not even an egg. so don’t be acting like i am some culinary MOW-ron, mr ‘Bama ! ; )
well the people i saw reacting on twitter were conservatives, one of them a black conservative, and so that is what surprised me. I think maybe it was their interpreting his ragging on Perry about the hunting camp name, as pulling the race card. A+++
A+++ for you and your mood ring, mik ; )
Wish I had spotted your post about the city of evil yesterday, I could have gone up for the game.
i’ll look at the schedule and let you know what other games will be close by you, i think they play in B’hamton also. They have a website, but it’s not operational just yet.
Herman grew up in the Segregated South, had to go to the back of the bus, drink from separate fountains, and was refused service at lunch counters. To him, disliking the “N” word is not playing the “Race Card”.
Anyone who buys into that is sadly mistaken, but probably SO conditioned by all the race-baiting of the Sharpton-types that it is a natural reaction for a Conservative.
Words DO have power, as evidenced by Your Wonderful Daily WFTD Thread. :-)
