FRee Dictionary ^ | FRiday | FRiday's Sub

Posted on 11/23/2012 5:29:35 AM PST by tioga


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”.

Sang-froid

Noun

    Coolness and composure, especially in trying circumstances.

[French : sang, blood (from Old French, from Latin sanguis) + froid, cold (from Old French, from Vulgar Latin *frigidus, alteration of Latin frgidus; see frigid).]


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....

While the media raged about a massive walkout on Black Friday, one lone worker walked out of one Walmart, crushing the MSM's dreams of a huge story. My sang-froid is validated on the subject.

Loophole? ...wouldn't THIS be a constitutional crisis....wow. Never happen, Boehner would tear up and demand a vote for Obama. I can dream, though.

The young lady hoped to eventually perform in plush nightclubs, but she accepted the fact that she needed to start at the bottom, so that winter she went to a train station and simply sang froid with an open guitar case for tips.

I’ve attempted to act with sang-froid
Though election results left me blah
I still don’t understand

For the morons, it’s “je ne sais quoi”

While some of his own countrymen revile him, and the heathen enemy shouts a faux victory, Bibi Netanyahu, dripping with sang froid and strong as titanium, bides his time, encourages his troops, and awaits the signal from The Lord Jehovah that it is time to destroy that enemy and avenge the blood of the Israelis who have died in the many cowardly bomb and rocket attacks upon his Nation.

The suspect in Brooklyn's .22-caliber serial killer displayed his sang-froid when he took his girlfriend dancing after his last murder.

Note: Autocorrect prefers sang-forbid.

Ambassador Rice was sang-froid as she told the media that her remarks about Benghazi were edited and approved by the intelligence community.

I have to shop for birthday items today since it’s the spouse’s day tomorrow and it’s been crazy busy here. We had a nice Thanksgiving here at home and off with other family, as I hope everyone else did too. Staying above the fray, keeping sang-froid about the parking situation around the mall, will be the big job today. Plus, it’s raining.

We always go to my Dem MIL’s house...thankfully NO politics. Then I get away around 5 to go visit my girlfriend and her family. After that it is back to my MIL’s for sandwiches and all those who missed the earlier dinner show up. I had lots of wine so I was mellow.

Looks like the news is evolving on the Walmart strike. In DC area 200 union workers were bussed in to picket. Unclear if any workers walked off the job for this strike.

We had a very nice Thanksgiving. I finally decided to use the crock pots as I’ve seen recommended. Mashed potatoes were prepared and put into a crock to keep warm. I heated the soup and milk for green bean casserole on the stove but mixed everything and put into another crock to “cook” - it worked perfectly. Everything was warm and ready when the turkey was carved. I can’t believe I never used this system before.

: ) Chuckles. It was just intended to be a sentence about current events using the word of the day. In no way was it intended to be any defense of a mendacious, bitchy dim. You have her pegged well.

Carl Jung loved to sing, yet he did not compose any music of his own, so he typically sang-froid.

Oh I missed the news of the day requirement. Well I saw the Hostess Twinky stuffed turkey article. When I was trying to get my half frozen turkey to give up its giblets for the second time, the beast was very sang-froid about the whole thing.

Sang Froid

Opera for Shrinks. “You are nuts”, sang Froid, “and you hated your daddy's guts”, sang Froid,
(chorus) “You're crazy as loon, everyone will know it soon! Sangman Froid, Sangman Froid”.

“I like my cigar better,” sang Froid, “and I'll quit being a bed wetter.”, sang Froid.
(chorus) “Sangman Froid, Sangman Froid, drop the cigar for steroids, you'll have your mommy's love if you give that needle one deadly shove, Sangman Froid, Sangman Froid”.

Beware...It sounds much better than what it is. Stay tuna in.

OMG i may have to go back out after a nap! i meant to drive by the walmart this AM and totally forgot. Xsgirls, xsboy and i left at 4:30 am for black friday at the outlets. it wasn’t as good as last year. i was surprised xsboy came along, he’s never come before. we had breakfast at wegmans when we were done. now i am ready to sleep. xsboy went back to bed, xsbrownie cannot fall back to sleep, and xsteen went out to get a mani/pedi. xshub had to go into his ofc since his big meeting is next week in Tucson.
xskid and i went to see Lincoln last night. it was good. Daniel Day Lewis makes a very convincing Lincoln.

I loved that book. I will have to see the movie. I am on duty, so I shopped on line...found exactly what I wanted and got it cheaper than the advertised price at Target and got free shipping on top of it. Good deal. Rowan should like this...he is not yet 2.

No. It’s not a biography but rather a biopic. It’s specific to the passage of the 13th amdmt. Sally Fields as Mary Todd. We were kinda worried we might see her boob at one point! Tommy Lee Jones was quite good as Thaddeus Stevens. Xshub didn’t come with us but I wish he had bc he’s a history buff and I don’t have an historical framework to put it in.

She looks far better on the Boniva commercials! Speaking of looking good, I’m currently reading Greg guttfield s book, and he was born in 1964! He’s 48? He doesn’t remotely look that I thought he was early 40s at thievery latest!
