Word For The Day, Tuesday, February 14, 2012
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".
the general intellectual, moral, and cultural climate of an era.
[C20: from German, literally: time spirit; see tide 1 , ghost ]
Today’s is “buy flowers.”
Today’s is “buy flowers.”
The zeitgeist, the time spirit, it is the hand raised not in friendly recognition but in the rigid salute, not in the easy salutation of friends but in fearful submission, not in hopeful submission to a greater good but to superior power, not in superior power to an end but wounding power as both means and end.
People in tall black boots being hailed by people in flip-flops. Zeitgeist!
Aww, the little white one looks like my shadow, Oliver.
I am wondering what sort of valentines day festivities there will be at the Olde Towne School for Dogs today. i hope i didn’t miscue in not sending in any cupcakes or valentines for Jule’s friends!
The Hip-Hop/Rap/Gangsta zeitgeist of Misogyny, Drug abuse, violence, and hate contributed to the death of Whitney Houston. JMHO.
What about that white rapper Vanilla Zeitgeist baby?
The Nuge knew about such fevers long ago.
I am on record for being sick(and tired) of being the catbox martyr.
I have a recipe for homemade doggie biscuits.....so you won’t be caught off guard for the next holiday!
He be in da zeitgeist too.
oh i have made homemade dog biscuits many times, but i was just not prepared for valentines day at the OTSFD!
shub has arranged for Slapshot, the Caps mascot, to go to xsjr’s HS and bring her hot choc and DD munchkins today at noon. He’d talked to the dean of students there in advance to make sure it would be ok, and i talked to her friend Joey, about videotaping it for us, since none of us will be there to see it. So hopefully that will be a huge surprise for her.
Out society’s zeitgeist has led to much drug abuse that has created a tenebrific cacography on the walls of many big cities. It is a gallimaufry of illegal street drugs and prescription drugs that work together to destroy us. Many a panjandrum has fallen under it’s spell. Some, like Whitney Houston fall so far, they die. Others, like Rush Limbaugh have conquered it. All very sad.
I just saw in traffic someone’s punchbug all covered in color-coordinated post it notes saying “I love you” or something similar in Spanish.
