Word For The Day, Monday, 4/1/13
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".
1. foolish or inane, especially in an unconscious, complacent manner; silly. 2. unreal; illusory
Etymology: [C17: from Latin fatuus ; related to fatiscere to gape]
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....
Good Morning Class. Welcome to School!

No pushing at the door please!
Beware of April FOOLS.
And no comments about the first lady on this thread, folks!
A+++ and don’t believe Breitbart.com’s account that the fool in question was BOOed at the Elite 8 game in DC on Saturday. xsboy and his friend were there and while they were booing, the predominant sound was cheers. xsboy was pretty astounded by that.
I’ll take door number two, Alex, “imaginary, illusion”. I went to the Dr. and he said I was fat. No says I, I’m fatuous, an illusion, just like the illusion I will pay your bill.
after having sauerkraut, i can be rather fatuous myself
Well, look who the cat dragged in!
with kielbasa?? A+++
kielbasa & pierogies...
anybody do any good AF jokes yet?
now what didja do with the wet bar?
i made kielbasa, pierogies and borscht for dinner on Saturday. Only on Holy Saturday.
“Mz. O, you’re not any kind of fashion model, cuz fatuous.”
a good pal made me a bunch of glopkes... finished them off over the weekend...now i gotta weasel another dozen out of her;-)
but down the rabbit hole where we are all living, MZ O is indeed portrayed as a fashion model! A+++
Ok I usually google mentions of foods on this thread...but I’m coming up empty on glopkes..... what are they?
yeah, i have never been a fan of the stuffed cabbage. my best friend makes good halushki though, the cabbage and noodles.
also known as HALUPKI, GALUMPKI, you know with the cyrillic alphabet, there are diff spellings. and people pronounce the stuff lots of diff ways. am thinking that’s camle’s bastardized version of stuffed cabbage.
Oh, stuffed cabbage - thanks
stuffed cabbages. i never knew how to spell it until recently
My Ukranian background was too far removed.... no grandmother to cook for me so I got “stuffed cabbage” instead. ;^)
mom called them glumpkeys, but never did get the hang of making them... my ex could - only thing she died right. but shed’ only make them once a year for christmas, and i could only have one....
now the grocery store down the street has them, but big Y across town has better.
i have a friend who makes them even better... she gave me a dozen or so a while back, and i just ran dry...
That gives me some unease, too.
Could have sounded different in different parts of the place. Fools aplenty to cheer him, though.
It is 73 here, and cloudy-there is supposed to be a cool front and rain on the way...
Obama and his worshippers
Repeat his fatuous nonsense
Showing all but the acolytes
That they have no conscience
The unwashed masses watch as
The first kids fly off to ski-
I guess they think jet fuel
Gets into the plane for free
I guess you can’t fix stupid,
So at the risk of being rude-
Someone please just shake them
Till they see we’re being screwed...
I’ve never seen a foot washing ceremony, only read about it. But I was appalled to read about the rogue sermon of the pastor where Obama went to Easter services. Does that man send capos with money to bribe ministers and priests to preach apostacy when he goes to their churches? God must be pissed off by now...
...damn dentists....was out to breakfast, felt a loose tooth two over from my problem tooth and dang if she didn’t pull it out this morning...I need an implant now. Not even the tooth from last week. Not too painful, though. I got there and their appointment didn’t show so they set upon my mouth and it was gone in a few minutes. Cracked right apart. Dear God....this is creepy.
That is weird-I’ve known people who’ve cracked teeth, but it was after biting down on something really hard either by accident or design.
A+++ yes the minister at St Johns let loose on Sunday apparently. if i was a parishioner there, he would have had heard from me!
I have been having problems in that area...figures. My luck is lousy.
Fatuous? Is that a personal comment?
Today I am just thinking pull all the damn teeth and give me all new ones so my smile is decent. 12 is towards the front. Still numb or I would go fake smile in a mirror and see how bad it looks. No way I want to smile for real....just not feeling it.
teeth are def problematic. so much PAIN. i am sorry you are having so much of it, so close together.
I am predicting the SCOTUS will effectively legalize gay marriage in June. Too many fools out there is support of it....I have to accept it now, rather than be in shock then. Even many of my crazy relatives, all Catholic, are in favor. Fools everywhere.
The infection is in 14, but 12 cracked....probably because my bite is so off from the swelling. Been lots of pain, could have happened at any point. She said that tooth was very brittle. They gave it to me in a little black box to put under my pillow. RME
Please, Ti-don’t ruin our day-and Nancy hasn’t been able to move her facial muscles that much since she started injecting industrial strength botox into her face...
well you tell your hub that you are expecting the tooth fairy to bring you something GOOOOOD for that big tooth! ; )
I think I’d have said something about sticking to the meaning of Easter instead of pandering, and left.
I ate so much yesterday I didn’t even get to the stuffed cabbage. Poor planning on my part.
“little black box”-I’ve heard from a reliable source that the tooth fairy has limited rebates to $5.00 per occurance due to layoffs and lack of funds because of new insurance requirements...
LOL I will settle for an implant. They are pretty costly.
