Word For The Day, Thursday, January 31, 2013 intemerate
dictionaries ad nauseam | 31 January 2013 | Thursday's sub

Posted on 01/31/2013 5:32:22 AM PST by secret garden


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".

intemerate \in-TEM-er-it\, adjective
Inviolate; undefiled; unsullied; pure.


Example sentences:
The rain smelled cool and earthy, and with her eyes closed it sounded louder and nearer; it seemed to be in the room, falling small and touchless upon her; it was clear, intemerate as the sky.
-- Fred Chappell, The Inkling

Did you know, sir, that I can trace my intemerate ancestry to Adam through the paternal line, and to Eve through the maternal line?
-- Andrew Drummond, Handbook of Volapük

Etymology:
Intemerate comes from the Latin root emerā which meant "to violate, desecrate." The prefix in- means "not" as in the words indefensible and inexpensive.



The sentence must, in some way, relate to the news of the day. The Review threads are linked for your edification. ;-)

They called Tuesday to see if I would be interested in picking up some extra shifts this weekend but then realized I cannot talk, so I cannot work.
A+ for the homework. Another sleazy NJ democrat. It sickens me how they hid the garbage until after the sheep re-elected him.

Since it is impossible to find a candidate with an intemerate past, it is better to choose one whose political principles most closely matches your own.

Hope you feel better soon. My dog was taught “front” at dog training years ago. (Dog training really should be calledowner training.)

The owner hold his arm straight out to the side with a closed fist and brings the fst in quickly and sharply to his chest. while saying “Front!” (Closed fist has a delicious treat in it.) When dog comes, reward with treat. Pretty soon, you just have to go through the motion and not say anything. And gradually ear rugging replaces food as treat.

It works, and you an call in a dog from across the field that way without saying a word.

You’d be surprised at how fast they learn sign language. I had a 15 year old Golden Retriever who was stone deaf, and I didn’t even know it because she responded so well to my body language. My neighbor pointed it out to me that if she wasn’t looking at me, she didn’t hear me. She’s been gone 15 years now, and we still miss her.

They know signs for their tricks(sit, stay, roll over) but not for the most basic commands like come and out. It’s a good time to teach it. Don’t we all have one of those dogs who just cannot be matched? I lost my favorite in April.

Our Missy is fading. She will go outside, then get confused and just stand there shaking in the cold. In the house we keep diapers on her. She sleeps most of the day. She rallies anytime my DH comes home. It’s heartbreaking to see her like this. I don’t want another dog after her. Too sad.

a six year old took a clear plastic water gun to school and is expelled FOREVER. ...this is crazy....she cannot even be in the car when the parents pick up their other children or she will be charged with a felony. I would love to see this tested in a court of law.

I always end up getting another dog though.

I never learn, it seems.

i’m with you and SG, heartbreaking as it is to lose them, dogs are the essence of life IMO. One of xshub’s employees lost her cav the night before last to mitral valve disease. i just sent her a sympathy email, having gone through it just under 2 years ago ourselves. xshub told her to look for signs of grief in the remaining dog, bc of our experience with Chanel’s KEENING wail after Lucius died. I told him last night to get prepared for the idea of three cavs at once for a period of time, bc at the point Chanel starts having problems we are going to have to get a third bc my bawl-baby insecure Jules cannot possibly be an only dog. He ADORES Chanel, and i don’t even want to contemplate him without her around.

My Aussie responded to hand signals, and enjoyed showing off-she was purchased from a kennel that bred and sold Aussies for AKC shows and herding competitions, and actual work. They used only hand signals for directing their dogs in competitions, claiming it kept the dogs from being distracted in herding trials.

They had a room full of trophies, so there might have been something to that...

No matter how very intemerate
Politicians would like to be
All committed indescretions-
And maybe even two or three

Some are arrogant and callous
And just outrageous to see-
Some are common, and railed at
By people who just don’t agree

They whine, pout and refuse to vote
For anyone with no halo or wings-
With elevated noses, they’ve helped
To make the current mess of things

And we all know at least a few of those people who are so certain of their holiness...

my other concern is that my allergies improved a lot after Peanut found a new home. not sure if it’s really true that bichon frise is hyper-allergenic and all that, but my sinuses are much better. would hate to have to give a dog away if they flare up.

One of my “Moms” called me yesterday, to confirm the Friday appointment for the 9 year old twins music lesson. She gave me a “heads-up” that Chloe, their 15 year old Bichon Frisee, had to be put to sleep after a severe health reversal (She was already blind and deaf, but still managed to get around and was part of the family).

The twins are devastated. Tomorrow is going to be rough.

Just for the hell of it, I taught Husky girl the basic commands in Spanish. She pretty much won’t pay attention to being told what to do in English. She does know the word “dinner”, though...
