Word For The Day, January 22, 2013
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".
lollygag [lah-lee-gag, lal-ee-]
1. to spend time idly; loaf.
2. to indulge in kisses and caresses; make love; neck.
[162535; < Latin fatuus silly, foolish, idiotic; see -ous]
Up and at ‘em.
Definitions one and two seem to be at odds with eachother.
With the current Regime in place, Conservatives have no excuse for lolligagging - now is the time to put our hands to the wheel and focus our minds on retrieving what has been lost over the past half-century.
I spent too much time lollygagging on definition #1, to have time for definition #2.
Kissing and caressing are hardly productive activities. (Though they could be re-productive.)
I agree. I have never heard the word applied to definition two.
It was a surprise to me as well, but there it is in the dictionary.
Not criticizing just saying who ever came up with definition #2 must be doing it wrong. lol.
Bill Clinton, wed to an unjolly hag
Got the urge to engage in some dolly tag
He questioned Miss Monica
“Can you blow a harmonica?”
While he wondered, perhaps, would a lolly gag?
Excellent, Truth! I heard Monica played a mean pork trombone as well.
I thought she was Jewish.
Just not kosher.
It was 6 degrees this morning when I started my car. With ten below wind chills. Don’t tell me “cold.”
Kids had a 2 hour delay. Probably same deal for tomorrow.
Its cold outside,
There’s no kind of atmosphere,
I’m all alone,
More or less.
Let me fly,
Far away from here,
Fun, fun, fun,
In the sun, sun, sun.
I want to lie,
Shipwrecked and comatose,
Nibbling at my toes,
Fun, fun, fun,
In the sun, sun, sun,
Fun, fun, fun,
In the sun, sun, sun.
At the inauguration, Obama asked Bill “How is hillary’s head?”
Bill replied, “Well, she’s no monica!”
One of my best friends is named Lolly.
That’s funny! It’s below freezing here again and we hate it. I want to live someplace that doesn’t go below 40.
Is that an inaugural poem? I heard it was awful but I stayed away from all TV and twitter related DC stuff yesterday because I have a strong gag reflex.
It’s the ending theme song to the BBC comedy “Red Dwarf.”
If you’ve never seen it, you should.
That’s very sad. Fireman’s funerals always are a big deal, with companies from all over coming to pay their respects.
I’m sorry to read that tioga - I”m sure that is very sad for you all.
It’s 19 degrees. Hard to believe I was laying on the sand in 85 degrees temps this time yesterday. A winter vaca was a real treat. I had wished it was below zero here for the thin skinned man’s second coronation yest.
Hard to believe I live in a state that passed a law that cops can’t have more than 7 bullets in their guns. How stupid do you have to be to do that?
There should be background checks and waiting periods. For legislating.
In her less ambitious days, the notorious “singer” was known as Lady Lollygaga...
52 and partly cloudy-I’m tempted to go back to the woods with a book, some food and water and find a spot in a thicket to hide in for the rest of the day...
After yesterday’s phony joy
And promises of more free stuff
Is it any wonder that most of us
See times staying just as tough
The Roman mob seeks amusement,
Like an open bar to lollygag
Read the NY Times-if they know how-
Or another liberal garbage rag
The rest of us just keep working
At anything that we can find
And hope to just keep it together
Since congress has lost its mind
it used to be the job of the media to vet a candidate....since the lefties are the media only the Republicans get vetted any more.
we used to have checks and balance with the courts as our watchdog, till the left took that over, too.
school shooting at lone star college in Houston.....stretchers going in. (sigh)
I am loving that young 14yo hero....the one who took in the rape victim and hid her from the rapist. the house was set on fire....unbelievable. I suspect the rapist is lucky to be in jail, not where that father can find him.
I heard that the shooting at the community college was apparently an altercation between two people-a shootout, not a random shooting, if you’ll forgive the frontier vernacular...
When I heard someone on TV saying they were going to talk to Silly Jackson Lee (that community coillege is apparently in her district), I muted it-she’ll likely blame the men we sent to Mars...
"Stimulus" spending which left no trace of economic improvement - $862 Billion
A POTUS who swears we do not have a spending problem - PRICELESS.
Priceless indeed......we can’t pay that back for generations.
Love the post! A+++
.....I recall TEA Partiers leaving DC cleaner then when they got there.
“Parade’s over. Let’s throw these flags away.”
