I am substituting for xsmommy, the regular Monday professor, who is vacationing in Italy. That reminds me: “exigent” is NOT an Italian word that means a man who had a sex change operation.

The defeat of Barack Obama in the upcoming election is as exigent as was the defeat of any foreign enemy we ever faced in wartime.

To prevent further grade inflation, I have re-scaled the curve. The highest grade will be A+++.

No pushing at the door please!

I have volunteer duty at the HS that is exigent this morning so I’ll be back later with some homework. It might be about the Dallas Cowboys making some exigent changes to their playbook. And how the Houston Texans finally got challenged yesterday and fell apart.

Dallas fell apart late in the game, as did the Eagles. My beloved NY Giants took advantage of the situation and clobbered the 49ers, an excellent team.

In baseball news, my (formerly) beloved NY Yankees can't hit a lick.

The Lamestream media have become even more exigent then usual in their attempts to re-inflate the numbers for the Obozo campaign and stop the bleeding.

Let's hope Romney hits an artery in the townhall debate tomorrow.

I figured I should do my real homework with a second sentence instead of goofing off.....

Although I have to admit, my original sentence was super-glued to my brain and I couldn't get past it until I shared it with y'all.....

As America is in exigent peril and danger,
as a US Ambassador is brutally murdered and gang-raped
on a schedule carefully pre-planned by the DNC,
as war fires rage against America around the world,
as dumbfounded terrorists come in droves across the border
ready to receive automatic weapons
courtesy of Obama and Holder's DO"J",
the undocumented Marxist pRes_ _ent
has but only important one goal:
Sigourney Weaver, Cynthia Nixon and Geena Davis
will perform a "presidential-themed stage show
to raise funds for U.S. leader Barack Obama's
re-election campaign".

I got the Red Zone package that switches from game to game, showing all the exigent results. No commercials--just football for 7 straight hours. Had that on the big-screen tv, and the baseball playoffs on a smaller monitor. About halfway through the day, I could swear I saw Alex Rodriguez throw a pass to Victor Cruz.

There are exigencies and there are emergencies.

Near as I can figure, the exigency is the rock, and the emergency is what crawls out from under it.

Stuff you have to deal with.

Dallas was one play away from beating or tying the Ravens. Twice.

The Browns finally got off the schnide. Normally, for them, being one game behind the Steelers is a favorable position.

And if you want to talk about second half collapses, check out the Pitt Panthers. Winning 21-14 with 53 seconds left in the first half, they then gave up 24 straight points, including a 75 yard bomb on the first play of the second half.

Buongiorno free wifi at the hotel so I decided to pop in and say hi. We are resting after walking our behinds off here the past two days. Taking a siesta after lunch. Lots of stuff closed on Mondays which is annoying. Medici chapel and Dante’s house both closed today we will try to get there tomorrow before we leave for Rome.
We are taking the train toRome and found out fortuitously from a nice fruity couple yesterday that a train strike was possible/imminent. Asked this AM at the desk and the concierge said it was “just a little strike, now it’s done” so I suppose I will check in the AM to make sure they haven’t decided on another little one in time for our departure. Who knows how these things work!
Saw burial spots of Donatello, Galileo (originally wasnt allowed in a church but he got there in 1700s) and Michelangelo as well as Machiavelli.

Hi, all:

*Ahem*

The extremely exigent briefings on US soil in Banghazi
Were ignored and its cover-up appears weightless and gauzy
With Vegas dollars so near, they did alluringly beckon
That Obama and his entourage were off in a second
Treating it all like a schtick from a Bear, name of Fozzy!

Jack.

The Pope was finishing his sermon. He ended it with the Latin phrase, “Tutti Homini” - Blessed be Mankind.

A women’s rights group approached the Pope the next day. They noticed that the Pope blessed all Mankind, but not Womankind.

The next day, after His sermon, the Pope concluded by saying, “Tutti Homini, et Tutti Femini” - Blessed be Mankind and Womankind.

The next day, a gay-rights group approached the Pope.
They said that they noticed that he blessed man kind and woman kind, and asked if he could also bless gay people.

The Pope said, “Sure”.

The next day, the Pope concluded his sermon with, “Tutti Homini, et Tutti Femini, et Tutti Fruiti.”

I do believe it is exigent for Obama to come up with a plausible answer to the Benghazi fiasco for tomorrow night's debate. Not sure he can.

Candy Crawley seems to be planning to attack at Romney the same way RaDitz went after Ryan, interrupting his answers to keep him off balance. As Crowley put it last week, “Once the table is kind of set by the town-hall questioner, there is then time for me to say, ‘Hey, wait a second, what about X, Y, Z?’”....... the debate agreement was set and signed by both campaigns, but apparently not the moderator: .....As stated in the document: “In managing the two-minute comment periods, the moderator will not rephrase the question or open a new topic … The moderator will not ask follow-up questions or comment on either the questions asked by the audience or the answers of the candidates during the debate or otherwise intervene in the debate except to acknowledge the questioners from the audience or enforce the time limits, and invite candidate comments during the two-minute response period.”

Not true, we ate lunch out at a very nice place. Don’t think it will be a problem. They guidebook mentioned some sites being closed on Mondays but didn’t say anything about restaurants and that kind of info would need to be in there. Also had no problem with anything being closed in Rome.

I was in Rome in early 2001. I remember the many varieties of pizza they sold near the Coliseum. Interestingly, they put it on a scale and sold it by weight.

Florence is extremely touristy, amazingly so. I’m struck by how many Americans are here. I did not feel that way in Rome four years ago. I’m sure small towns probably close still on Mondays. And the sites aren’t closed every Monday either. Medici chapel closed on first, third and fifth Mondays. Bc closing every Monday would make it too easy!

Well, with all of Obama’s and Rahm’s extensive and loooong history of intimately “visiting” the many Chicago gay houses, it’s evident that neither can be an exigent, since they never seem to be an gent in the first place.

Exigent is Italian for one who has undergone a male to female sex change. Bigamist is Italian for fog. Bigotry invokes a large oak or, perhaps, a sequoia. Innuendo refers to a certain sexual practice which would be inappropriate to discuss in such a refined atmosphere.

Exigent

From The Big Book of Smarts: Exigent is just a man who has learned humility.This is not to confused with an elderly man who has learned humus which is a dirty old man so to speak, which is not the same as man making hummus, a substance that looks like it was ate once already, bumus humus, not Bummer Hummer because them’s real neat if you can log off a few veneer trees on state land.

Remember, the Obama definition of exigent is as follows:
exigent [ek-si-juhnt]

adjective
1. requiring action or aid immediately after my golf game, or fundraiser, or meeting 2-bit actors, or singers, or figuring out March Madness basketball playoffs...

Origin: 2008-present; late Middle English Thug < Latin exigent- (stem of 'I missed that putt 'cause of you!' )

And, lest we forget, Exigent is a biblical conflation of Exodus and Genesis, not necessarily in that order. Although Biden favors the 4-letter one, the Book of Job.

Last night's game was odd for me - as both a Houston fan and a Green Bay fan, I was hoping Houston would continue undefeated, but was happy to see Green Bay back on their game! So it was still a win for me.

And Tech played very nicely this weekend as well so that was a bonus.

I thought that was Gen-Ex.

On debates in general: There are people that just can't help themselves, they open their mouth like it's involuntary and things just come out, like opening the door to Fibber McGee's closet.

My friend has a front tooth broken off. He and his wife are going to buy a bottle of wine, wedding anniversary coming up you see, and the clerk asks if he wants the wine in a bag.
No, says Stupid, She's had enough already.

Very funny but he looks funny too with a broken front tooth and the orthodontist’s bill should be hilarious.

Some people are like that. Their mouth is not a faucet that can be turned on and off but a pipe bursting and making a mess. They are what duct tape was invented for.

Just a couple of thoughts here.
