Word For The Day, Monday, 1/30/12
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".
redound; verb [used without object]
1. to have a good or bad effect or result, as to the advantage or disadvantage of a person or thing. 2. to result or accrue, as to a person. 3. to come back or reflect upon a person as to honor or disgrace (usually followed by on or upon ).
Etymology: 1382, "to overflow," from O.Fr. redonder "overflow, abound" (12c.), from L. redundare "to overflow" (see redundant). Meaning "to flow or go back" (to a place or person) is from 1382; hence "to rebound" (c.1500), and "to contribute to" (the credit, honor, etc.), c.1500.
example: Thomas Hobbes Leviathan: "So that the effect which redounds to one man, by another man's defect of right, is but so much diminution of impediments to the use of his own right original."
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....
Oh yeah, I got to watch the entire speech. Amazing speaker, never once looked down at notes, and there was NO teleprompter....cspan pulled the camera out to show the whole stage.
The Sieves refer to Tyler as TEEN WOLF, it was hilarious to see him singing along!
We will be going to Mass up there next weekend, at SU. i am steeling myself for it.
never saw it before.
They have their new bishop, so it should be better. Let me know.
We used to sing it all the time when we were little.
I SWOONED FIRST!
LOL No apologies needed. You are just one of millions of people to get confused. Add to that Monominee Falls near Milwaukee and the Menominee Indian Reservation up north that’s just called Menominee. I have a friend from Washington State who still thinks that I moved to Minneapolis and she’s been here to visit!
Remember what the Prince said to Mozart in Amadeus? “Too many notes”. We have too many Ms in the Midwest.
He def makes my heart beat fast.
Yeah well we will be going to the Newman Center or whatever they call the University Catholic center there, for Mass.
A+++ for Herr KLINK!!
to this day I cringe when I see John Bolton on my tv........when he endorsed Romney I was in shock. I muted my tv and read some of whatever book I was reading. Even today when he appeared on my tv I turned away.
Michelle is very logical and methodical in her assessment....just like the day I stood next to her at CPAC, I stand with her. If Santorum is still standing at the end, I will be pleased.
I have ZERO problem with principled conservatives endorsing Romney. They did the calculus and their conclusion is he is the only one who can win. Whether that is true or not is immaterial, i think it’s their right to reach whatever conclusion they have. To me, it’s just ludicrous to ;align someone’s conservative credentials over a difference in opinion. It comes down to pragmatists v. idealogues and i am a pragmatist to my core. I am not supporting Romney, but i will not condemn anyone who does.
Like XS, I am watching this recall and fear the worst - I hate liberals winning anything because they usually cheat. I want to thank you and your husband for all you are doing - and for the updates as well - As you know, all we get from the liberal media is doom and gloom so we wouldn’t even know the effort being put out by you all!
Since Romney is hardly conservative to his core, I find supporting him a sellout. Can’t help it, it’s a core reaction.
that’s exactly what xshub said! his friend said one jagoff there had signed the recall petition 80 times. RME.
I really think there should be a penalty for that! They are lying, signing their name to a lie and causing more work or possibly a line to voter fraud. I had a republican friend (at least she claimed) who voted for bammy because “it was time to elect a black man” who argued with me that filling out 25 or more voter registration cards was not illegal or wrong. She said it was not voter fraud because they hadn’t voted 25 times. Semantics -
The “i’m more conservative than you are” BS i have seen on FR makes me puke. This is war, everyone knows it, and who anyone chooses to lead them, based on their perception of the likelihood of victory is one i refuse to second guess, because the stakes are so high.
i totally agree!
What’s with the extraneous semicolon?
it was a typo, you pedantic jagoff ; ) MALIGN.
Not that one. The one in your original post. After the image for wftd. I let it slide last week.
I have now. Caught the second half of that movie the other day.
still not seeing it, so you are likely to continue to have to rail about it, since i can’t even find it to correct it. u r the princess with the dang pea, ya jagoff ; )
have you ever seen Cape Fear? xshub was watching it again last night. It’s one of his fave movies of all time. I’d say they are: It’s a Wonderful Life, Scarface and Cape Fear. I wonder what this says about him! i’d seen it before but had to leave to go up to bed, bc it was bothering me too much.
it’s still the primary, we are entitled to make our own picks.....ABO in the end, but it’s hardly over.
Are you that helpless that you don’t know how to search, or do you just not care? ;-)
no one said it was. everyone is entitled to make their picks, for sure. it’s the i’m-more-conservative-than-thou bc i’d never vote for Romney meme that irks me. the point is— conservative minds can differ on strategy in this war.
well i DEF don’t care, and i can probably find it if i search for it, now that i have actually SEEN the offending semi-colon, but just in the offchance that it IRKS YOU, i’m leaving it : )
I’ve seen none of those, but I did watch “Chasing Amy” in the airport yesterday. Did you get your Kevin Smith movies?
U have lived to age 40 whatever you are and not seen It’s a Wonderful Life? is your TV ever turned on at Christmas? i swear it’s on every channel. And i have the movies, but forgot to watch them. Will have to do that.
who in the hell is she hoping to attract with that stuff? Nancy boy Obams is more likely to want to borrow them to dress up for Reggie Love than he is to be turned on by her wearing it!
one of the comments after the article suggested she was buying to impress a new lover, cause she wouldn’t bother with spending that much to impress BHO....just ridic to imagine.
I’ve seen numerous parodies of various scenes from the movie. But, no haven’t ever watched it. I did see Miracle on 34th street.
Watched “Shaun of the Dead” the other night with Sarah. She used the word “zombocalypse”.
wonder if her supposed secret service lover was there?
OMG......just read Fr. De Celles homily......I am so starved for a good homily....my heart is restored just reading it.
Read the other guys too, it’s also good. My baptist SIL said it gave her chills she was so moved.
It is 58 and drizzling here-and fog is closing down already, too. I had a sandwich from the local deli and a grapefruit for late lunch-I’m not going to be hungry again today, so it will be a fine evening to feed my pets early and curl up with them in the kitchen in front of the TV, computer or with a book as soon as I go drag in and cut up some wood...
Michelle Antoinette has been shopping
At an exclusive lingerie boutique-
These screw-ups will redound on her
And that is nowhere near unique
She probably does have a hot lover-
And I don’t blame her for that
But even after spending 50 thousand
Her ass is still obviously fat
I think when she leaves next January,
We should sell all of her tacky stuff-
Some Latin dictator’s mistress might
Have the cash and be tasteless enough
I’m in complete agreement with you on the fingers-in-ears thing on the political attacks-it is starting to get too close to mass hysteria for my liking-I’m also keeping my own counsel and not contributing to it-there is too much at stake to be a bombthrower.
Hilarious A++++ !
I’m curled with mine in front of the fireplace now. Just got off the treadmill. Had a frustrating day at work and needed to work that off. I feel infinitely better. Jules starts school next week!
Stem Cell: The same thing we always do, Brain. Try to take over the world!
Thank you! It is not cool enough for a fire-nearly 60 out and getting warmer as a tropical front approaches with more rain. I’m here in the kitchen alcove with Husky girl on one of her pet beds munching a rawhide rollup chew that smells faintly horrid. Three of the cats are in baskets by the china cabinet and TV, and Titus is in my chair, snoring and dangling his paws over my leg.
many dog treats smell AWFUL!! mine were threatening to murder each other over a chewy.
I looked at the package that one came from, and it says rawhide rollup treats for dogs-beef and chicken flavored. They are round, dark and light rawhide like pinwheels and about 2 1/2 inches across-Husky girl loves them better than any other treat, and they do not smell like chicken or beef...
