Word For The Day, Wednesday, January 2, 2013-- mansuetude
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".
hear it pronounced
[13501400; Middle English from Latin mansuētūdō, from mansuētus, past participle of mansuēscere to make tame by handling, from manus hand + suescēre to train]
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.
Practice makes perfect.....post on....
Happy New Year to All!
Since most of his amazing girth is composed of gristle and disgusting fat, Michael Moore is a perfect example of man-suet-tude.
Happy New Year to all.
Happy New Year to all.
happy new year to you truthy!
That reminds me of the joke about the immigrant taking English as a Second Language. He's asked to use "green," "pink," and "yellow" in a sentence.
"The telephone goes 'green, green' so I pink it up and say 'yellow!'"
My dog makes yellow snow.
That must have been one huge hangover...I don’t see a Tuesday class.....but Truthie’s is still ongoing. LOL Where is the new classroom?
oh, wait.....I am IN Wed’s classroom.....says Ti as she looks around.........and I had nothing to drink over the holidays. good grief. sinus infections are hard on me.
Going back to bed. I am not ready for the world yet this morning.
You need to give yourself some mansuetude. I, however am hungover and need mansueturd.
wow. that is funny in light of a facebook post from xsbaby’s HS chem teacher, who posted this past weekend that it’s a good thing he doesn’t teach gov’t [he tagged the gov’t teacher in the post] because he would be tempted to have the class write their congressmen and say FU. We were thinking that it was probably ill advised of him to post it on FB and hope he’s not fired for it today!
I wish more than 176 Repubbies had the guts to step on Obama’s debt-colored mansuedeshoes ... and then twist.
Do your dogs like the snow? I’m not talking about playing in it, I mean just sticking their noses in and smelling. It must be an olfactory symphony, cause he would do it all day if I didn’t stop him.
He’s reading the blogs left by other dogs.
i also wanted to do a class report today- i went shooting with xshub yesterday, my first time at a range [i’ve shot clays before at a resort]. it was interesting. for those who may not have gone before or perhaps if it differs regionally speaking, i wanted to relate that the clientele was not what you might imagine. i feel pretty sure that libs think that it’s a largely redneck crowd. well let me tell you, in the DC suburbs of Chantilly, VA, it was far from redneck. for one thing, the ethnic diversity was staggering. There was an Asian family, complete with grandad, parents and young teen kids. Indianish looking families. lots of dads and kids, sons and daughters. very nearly as many women as men, and i am talking well dressed, stylish women of all ages. We waited at least a half hour for a lane, it was that crowded. The guys manning the place consisted of as many blacks as whites. I don’t know about anyone else’s perceptions, but i figure that the ethnic diversity alone would astound libs.
we haven’t really had any that was on the ground for any length of time this year, but generally they do love it. I am not sure Jules has experienced it fully yet, bc we had no snow last winter hardly at all, but when it is snowing, they do want to go out constantly. I forget which day [it’s hard to keep track of which day of the week it is with the holidays] it was extremely windy, and they were just WILD, rampaging around in the house and out. Must’ve been Sunday, and then Monday it was calmer out and they were back to themselves. Cavs are not generally overly rambunctious, but being outside definitely keys them up.
St. Peter will greet Venezuela’s Fearless Leader with (drum roll):
“Hugo to Hell.” (rim shot.)
#1 a totes ridiculous stunt #2 ewww, does she know where that thing has been???
Well it’s one for the money
Two for the show
Three to get ready
Now, go cats go
But don’t you
Step on my mansuetudes
the news is unwatchable, there is NOTHING going on that doesn’t send me into an abyss of depression/rage. NOT A THING. it made NYs very depressing.
Lots of people buying guns. Can’t all be white guys. Though it was the last time I was at the range. ;-)
Speaking of rednecks, I watched a funny movie the other night on Netflix. Tucker and Dale vs Evil. A couple WV rednecks checking out their newly-bought vacation cabin run into some college kids out partying and horror comedy ensues.
One of the college girls hits her head and falls in the lake. The rednecks rescue her, but the kids think they are abducting her and are crazy killers.
I thought it was just my constant pain, but you are right. I see theWon was on a plane back to Hawaii within the hour of JoeyB saving the day. Can you imagine another 8 years after this of HIM? I need to go to a gun range and do some shooting. It must have been quite a release. Who were you shooting at?
we talked to the one guy and he said they didn’t have an appreciable uptick after the re-election, like they did in 2008, but that it came after Newtown and the banning talk. lots of congress and obama bashing going on there.
NYs eve, xshub and i watched movies on cable- Trouble With the Curve with Amy Adams and Justin Timberlake and Clint, that was pretty good. and then the Big Lebowski came on! xshub hadn’t seen it, so that was fun.
There is no better metaphor for liberalism than having a D-List, no talent “actress” pretend to kiss the private parts of a gay male “news correspondent” on television, New Year’s Eve. Guy Lombardo was probably spinning in his grave, not to mention Dick Clark.
All the Dude wanted was his rug back.
Anderson Cooper can never go straight to bed. Or anywhere else.
well the first target was the man-shaped one and while i had a few near the heart region, i had what xshub called “a nice little pattern going” in the crotch area! LOL!! i figure that would probably do the trick on an intruder, but i do have to figure out how to bring the gun up somehow. i can’t quite figure out which eye to look out of and can’t seem to keep them both open at the same time! the second target was the smaller bulls-eye one and i got a few on there amazingly enough. my true forte was loading the bullets in the magazine though. xshub was struggling with it and taking forever, so once he showed me how to do it, i was able to load it much more quickly and efficiently. i think i need to take a class though. he doesn’t know enough, as a neophyte himself, to teach me, i had cuts on my thumb from the gun, which he said shouldn’t happen.
do you like coitus?
I was talking about my rug.
now he came out recently didn’t he? not that it was ever in doubt. but shemp clings to the closet.
John Goodman was also in Trouble with the Curve, not sure if it was a marathon of him or what, but i love him in the Big.
Since the election, I have abandoned watching any news on television, including FOX. We have a small tv in the kitchen and used to watch Bret Baier, et al, during dinner.
The last time Juan Williams spewed out the dem’s talking points, I nearly choked on my steak. Truth’sWife issued an ultimatum and that was that. Cablevision has a bunch of music stations and we now listen to Solid Gold Oldies while enjoying a meal. I’m unlikely to toss the remote at Tommy James or any of the Shondells.
My one gun came with a neat little tool for loading the magazines. It pushes the spring down, so you can load them more easily than trying to push down and in at the same time.
Yes, you need to hold the gun lower so that the slide doesn’t break your thumb. When my wife used to work for a bone doctor, she saw a few of those, especially right after New Year’s, when drunk neophytes shot guns at midnight.
Wear 4-inch heels.
i have mostly done the same. i adore Greg Gutfeld though and so i do try to watch the Five. As bad as Juan is, he’s less likely to incite me to a stroke than Beckel. i can’t look at Twitter either for the same reason.
I love how people Tweet him angrily whenever he mis-identifies a song or artist. He’s obviously doing it on purpose.
My congressman voted no as we knew she would. Why the heck did Paul Ryan vote yes?
I like the phrase “zesty enterprise.”
