Word For The Day, August 21, 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".
1. Volition in its weakest form.
2. A mere wish, unaccompanied by an effort to obtain it.
[161020; < Neo-Latin velleitās, equivalent to Latin velle to be willing + -itās -ity]
It’s the volitional form of “truthiness.”
Many conservatives demonstrated a velleity to elect a good candidate in the Primaries.
RUnning around in 101 degree heat all day yesterday brings me to the realization that I need to start exercising and lose weight. However that wish is sheer velleity as of now.
I was looking for it last weekend. Based on the ads I figured it had opened already.
So we went to the drive-in instead. Sarah’s first time. You’d like it. You can bring your dogs. We didn’t bring ours, but may next time.
don’t think we have any down here, but Jules and Chan would enjoy seeing a film in the car! had to have xshub stop for batteries for the electric collar last night. i was outside in the flower bed talking to my lawnguy about what i need done, and Jules crossed the line where the electric fence is and was sucking the Roundup off the dang weeds.
xsboy leaves for school on thursday, so the plan is for me to make dinner for he and his cronies tonight. i am going to grill steaks, make twicebaked potatoes, green salad, fruit salad and brownies and ice cream.
I thought that was a town up in northern California.
You can bring your lawn chairs and stuff, too. Don’t have to sit in the car.
They’re teenage boys. You can probably get away with just baking the potatoes once. ;-)
Our ideals get merely velleity
From The One who’s compared to a deity.
Yet without TOTUS’ screen
He comes off very mean,
With a total lack of spontaneity.
To the Left, a balanced budget’s a velleity
Because Socialism’s their exalted deity
They love abortions, unions, gays
And the one god Oboma prays
To: God of Groupthink, also known—Homogeneity
two excellent pomes back to back!
Oh, but that Obama’s ABBCNNBCBS mainstream media would not treat Joe’s stupidity and Obama’s lies as the velleity they believe.
What the heck is Binghamton Stadium 12? Never heard of it.
I still like his gym pic.
Similar limericks. (Simalimericks?) Cue the dueling banjos theme.
is there a multiplex in B’hamton? Maybe you don’t know it by that name?
There are two multiplexes. Neither go by that name.
Looks like the Regal. They left out the key word.
