Word For The Day, Monday, 11/28/11



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".

redolent;adj.

1. having a pleasant odor; fragrant. 2. odorous or smelling (usually followed by of ): redolent of garlic. 3. suggestive; reminiscent (usually followed by of ): verse redolent of Shakespeare.

Etymology: 1350–1400; Middle English < Latin redolent- (stem of redolēns ), present participle of redolēre to emit odor, equivalent to red- red- + ol ( ēre ) to smell (akin to odor) + -ent- -ent

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. ;-)

Good Morning Class. Welcome to School!

Here is my example with WFTD.

Redolent of the nannystate. Obviously the poor kid needs help, but removing him from his parents custody is out and out nazism.

What is your take on Bernie Fine? I told you before, I am no SU fan, but this STILL smells foul to me. His wife agrees with accusations coming from her own lover. WTF? Is she really credible at that point? This guys father swears he is lying, as well. There is a discordant note in this story to me.

I tried to ping him to the thread, but I must be spelling it wrong.

Oh Lord, it got a whole lot more sordid didn’t it? xshub was reading stuff aloud to me yesterday and playing the dang audio of her phone call. His take on it was: “this is f@#$ed up!” She had a little baby at the time, she’s in her 40s and he’s 18, living in her dang basement. She is sure as hell no hottie. Plus, this entire conversation is conducted with those HIDEOUS upstate NY accents. THe guy is NOT alleging any sex, just touching and fondling. So, Bernie sends wifey up to check on the baby so he can go down and feel this kid up? I just don’t get it.
The newest accuser def sounds ridic. he claims Bernie met him at an autograph signing session and then just up and contacts him and asks him to COME ON THE ROAD WITH ME TO THE PITT-SU game next week??? how does that make sense. AND, that would mean the entire dang team would have seen him on the dang bustrip to Pgh. SO implausible and as you said the dad says the guy is full of BS on this. Also he is himself accused of molestation [the new accuser]

Look on the bright side; somewhere a pharmacist is mixing up a really potent chemical cocktail, and a druggy is about to go on the ride of his life!

My reaction is strange, because I was ready to castrate Sandusky myself with some dull farming implement, but this set of accusations is just REDOLENT of setup to me.

A++++ i agree it doesn’t seem to add up, but the wife’s tape definitely makes it more lurid and screwed up all the way around. one distinction from Sandusky is these alleged victims hung around and let it go on TIL THEY WERE IN THEIR 20s. that just doesn’t seem normal to me. Again, no accusations of SEX, just fondling, and you are some grown man letting that go on into your 20s? Clearly, the fondling didn’t turn him gay since he was doing the wife years later. just sick.

A+++ bright sunshiny news all around. Caps fired their coach. not remotely sure it was the right thing to do. It gives OV way too much power, bc he was apparently not happy with Bruce. PLUS, they hire a former Cap THUG with record breaking penalty minutes, as the new coach. AND he’s never coached above Juniors.
Knew it was coming from yesterday, but news broke on Twitter about a half hour, 45 min ago.

I've been out of pocket this weekend so I haven't heard any updates on anything! I will have to search to see this story.

We met our daughters future in laws and they were just wondeful people. We had them over for our saturday thanksgiving feast, then back for brunch Sunday morning. We had a great time. I'm so happy for my daughter to have in laws who love her so much.

Obama plays golf, he’s just indolent
His politics? Marxism, redolent
With the accent on “red”
Try free markets instead
It’s a shame that the public is somnolent

To broadly paraphrase, the Caps are not “redolent of team spirit”...

(When you lose 5-1 to BUFFALO w/ 9 AHL’ers in the lineup, you know you’re in trouble ;)

Bawney Fwank’s supwise announcement that he wiww not wun for we-ewection had a somewhat redolent stench of disaster about it. He claimed he came to the conclusion last year, but I have grave doubts about that insistence. Just as long as he’s going though, I’m happier.

Happy Birthday(s)!! Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving-

People are fed up with OWS
In cities across the nation-
For turning pristine parks into
Places redolent of defecation

If the organizers never thought
Of shelter, toilets or trash
They’ve just provided squatters
With a place to do drugs and crash

But now the cops and cleanup crews
Are beginning to get tough-
And the nearby business owners say
Throw the vermin out-we’ve had enough

I got one of those 3 page Holiday chat-and-curiosity letters from a friend of mine who sends them every year to all her friends-but instead of calling/e-mailing her with details of personal lives she is so obviously panting for, here is the tease I’m sending her instead-

When presented with Pandora’s box
Redolent of sandalwood and dust
Why hesitate to open the lid
And breathe the remembered lust?

On the wiser side, why tempt fate
And loose the Chimera within?
Better to leave the lid unopened
Upon such sweet, seductive sin...

I’ve e-mailed all the usual suspects she sends these things to every year, and my date and hour in the betting pool we have on her first phone call is tonight at 7PM...
