Word For The Day, January 29, 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".
agreeable; genial; kindly.
[171525; couth2 + -ie, spelling variant of -y1]
It was 1983. Morning in America. Flashdance and the McNugget become things. Michael Jackson debuts the moonwalk. Kiss appears in public sans makeup. And this group of Dutchmen cracks the Top 40 with a tale of lost love.
Unfortunately, the couthie RINO’s in the Congress get routinely hondled by the couthless Left.
that is one HAHT sleeveless leopardprint jumpsuit that the drummer is wearing ; )
Is this too now HAIRBAND NATION?
I would rather be a a bearer of truth,
even if it means I am a bit uncouth.
“truthee is better than couthie”
At least the guitarist is wearing a bow tie.
Ha Ha Ha! I should have PINGED you, FRiend! :-)
Representatives of both parties are doing their couthie duty in trying to out-pander each other in the quest for Hispanic votes. Let’s be honest, folks—if there were an old law on the books that said that Hispanics would never be allowed to vote, there would be no pandering. In fact, the borders would have been sealed long ago and strict laws would have been passed (and enforced) to prevent employers from hiring illegals, and the latter would have been rounded up and/or harangued to such an extent that they would have gone home willingly. This whole brouhaha has nothing to do with compassion, and everything to do with votes.
I must have been in a coma in the early 80’s....I don’t remember that band or the song, and now wish I could forget looking at them.
Exactly truthie - as I’ve said many times before, even in my State, which claims to be doing all it can to prevent illegals from being here/staying here - even a government contract does not keep a contractor from having all illegal workforce. We have a major project going on nearby and all I see are small dark men working. Illegals are darker than American hispanics and much smaller - it is easy to spot them.
It did hit #39 on the Billboard charts. I heard it on the radio while I was out Saturday. Awful scrawny looking singer. The guitarist ended up in Whitesnake.
My son would probably know that - and I do know of Whitesnake....Well I was working a lot back then and since I didn’t meet my husband until the end of 83, I guess if I ever did go to a club it was country.
I can’t imagine a “club” playing that type of music.
Who hired Craig Livingstone?
Hair band hard rock.
I couldn’t understand about half of what he said but loved the digs at the Ravens taking mug shots..... and asking why Ray keeps crying on the field. lol
my coworker from Pgh says he may have to root for the Ravens just bc if SanFran wins, the Steelers will not be the only team with 6 superbowl wins. i am sure Soother must’ve figured that angle out too.
xshub thinks it’s remarkable that that stabbing death is STILL unsolved and RayRay’s white suit, worn that night, has never been found.
I’m with xshub on that one.
Yes, of course. I tweeted that night that the choice in this Super Bowl is like being asked to choose between a sharp stick in the eye or a badger attacking your nether regions.
There really should be no option here. SF can win a 6th, but we were still first. On the other hand, the Ravens winning anything is a travesty. It’s a smear on our record that they were allowed to win one at all.
he’s long had a hate on for Ray Lewis, never could figure out why he’s so popular, thinks he’s over-rated and would always just pile on after a hit and come up mugging like he was crucial.
If dude’s gonna be crying cause he’s retiring (an acceptable thing under man law), he might as well cry cause he lost!
LOL! good point!
LOL......I asked some questions too....Hillary, did climate change contribute to your limp hair on your many travels? #AskState
My girl friend’s husband is cheating on her, what should she do? #AskState
Hillary, do you have any good chocolate chip cookie recipes? #AskState
yep...I went straight to the heart of things. LOL I did enjoy browsing the questions there.
A couthie Obama is a myth
he’s surly without any mirth
he’s an arrogant one
likes to say he won
does he really have any kith?
I have an inquisitive mind. ;^)
Is couthie the opposite of uncouth?
For music lovers everwhere, I offer this video tracing the History of Music:
You’ll think it is in another language, but I pomise that you’ll be able to read it. Enjoy.
But couthie’s WAY better than cooties....
No, a completely unrelated word “couth” is the root.
Still, it sounds like something bad. If you called someone “couthie” in a bar, they’d probably punch you.
We are cheering for SanFran - two former Tech players on the team and I detest Baltimore.
As soon as I got home, I opened the windows to air out the house-it is 74 now, but getting cool again tomorrow...
Rubio and a few other guys
Have just stolen some thunder-
King Obama then had to tiptoe
So he wouldn’t trip or blunder
They simply grabbed the lead
While being couthie and nice-
Obama is redundant, no matter-
He just discovered the price
Of trying to upstage congress
On every issue that comes along-
Even some of his supporters
Appear tired of his selfish song
I don’t know exactly what happened, but it appears that some elected officials from both parties got tired of just being dragged along and remembered who sent them to DC and why...
I sort of liked “This Burning Heart”-and I still really like Whitesnake...
Was I right, then, that you knew it, but had completely forgotten it?
68 here! People were running in shorts/tshirts at lunch. We had delayed arrival for ICE yesterday. So dang weird
Pretty much so-but I did hear it on the classic rock station I like a few days ago-there is a DJ on in the early afternoon who is all 80’s, all the time...
It got up to 74 here today, but it is cooling off fast now, and the wind is blowing a bit-supposed to get down to 43 tonight...
I was running around with no jacket this evening.
61 this AM, going up to 68, high of 44 tomorrow!
