Susurrus, also Susurration

Class is in session......HUMP day is here. Look lively!
"I'm susurrus, people!"
Shirley, you can’t be susurrus!
Beat me by five seconds.
This is hugh and susurrus.
Ugh. Getting home today after 6 weeks on the road......
The susurrus of the Slow Jam News was a morning emetic (thx, xs) for me. Can’t believe I haven’t seen a thread on it yet.
There’s a girl that’s been on my mind
All the time
You’re no jonah, but that was good ; )
i simply cannot watch the vid. i know my head would explode and i would likely trash my ofc in a rage were i to view it. it takes sterner stuff than i am made of, to subject oneself to that.
Brains and style of a dull brontosaurus
Wines and dines like the Greek, Epicurus
A cacophony of sound
Says, “You won’t be around”
“Bye, Barack” is a roar, no susurrus
who’s Shirley? A+++
LOL indeedy. A+++
cue the Welcome Back Kotter intro......WELCOME BACK!
I do believe I caught a reference to him fawning like a school girl over a boy band. LOL A+++
A+++ now I have an earworm.
Well, I voted yesterday, mostly to no avail. My RINO congressman Tim Murphy won against a real conservative contender. Murphy runs these ads every 2 years bragging about how conservative he is, and then votes for labor union stuff like card check and bailing out union pensions.
In the 5 way race for the US Senate nod, my guy din’t win, but more importantly the “anointed” candidate didn’t either. The state party actually endorsed a guy who voted for Obama in the 2008 dem primary before supposedly “seeing the light.”
Sorry. That’s poor judgment and a lifetime DQ for getting my vote.
And in the battle royale of the newly merged Democrats, Crist upset Altmire.
I always link to Free Dictionary that has a pronunciation button for every word. Very useful.
reminds me of that musical “Bye, Bye Barracki...” A+++
endorsed Obama? wow..... unreal.
Was registered as a Democrat and voted for Obama in spring 2008. Now, in 2012 wants to be the GOP nominee to take on Casey for the US Senate. And the state party leaders say “yeah, that’s our guy.”
It took 9 posts for that to come up??
(For some reason now, I’ve got a taste for a Michelob...)
Strange one .... it brings to mind a puzzle — “What’s the longest English word you can form by a repeat application of only three letters?”
The press coverage of Fast and Furious has been little more than a susurrus page shuffle, appalling in comparison to the excessive volume of the pain created in the lifes of those impacted.
Seeded. I am still thinking.
today’s word excluded of course, as that is no longer a challenge.
Very good! It’s a tough one, non-plurals are even harder...
That’s a dinosaur of which little was spoken, right?
You want that Michelob tonight, tonight, tonight?
Have you read the new book out on Fast and Furios? A+++
After the near gale force blowing the past few days, the susurrus coming from the trees this morning is delightfully peaceful...”Oh, what a beautiful, susurration morning!
well, duh. ;^)
A+++ What a beautiful day! I already was out for a walk, just lovely out.
When pulled over by the police and asked to recite all 29 or 30 letters of the alphabet do not just keep saying the same 3 letters over and over like this......susurrus....cause it sounds like, “Sue, sue, (har, har) us!” and kindly Mr. Policeman may think you’re calling hogs (not good) or you’re one of those shiny pants lawyers (very, very not good) and he sets his tazer on the “screwdriver in the back of the t.v.” setting.
Maybe best we forget this “sewerus”.
with Newt with one foot out the door, what will happen to FR w/o a candidate to elevate? Will it be Virgil Goode, obscure former VA state senator, current presidential candidate of the Constitution Party?
They caught Malcom’s brother, the one who shot his partner and stole $2.4 million from an armored car.
The idiot was flopping in some house in Florida in a drug neighborhood. Flapped his gums to much and someone looked up the Pgh police and turned him in.
He obviously wasn’t very bright. I’d have been in Mexico having senioritas feeding me margaritas.
Lovely here, too-puffy clouds, breezy and 68...
It’s serious campaign time now
Obama is out there painting
Rosy pictures for student loans-
Maybe next they will be fainting
On questions of the economy
He doesn’t have a proper word-
The susurrus of gentle breeze
Is all that can be heard
That is because most of us
Who have a working brain
Know there is no more money-
Thinking otherwise is insane
Some will go Goode, some will go blank and some will write in Palin and feel good about themselves.
