Word For The Day, July 2, 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".
-n, plural anabases
1. a march from the coast into the interior, as that of Cyrus the Younger against Artaxerxes II, described by Xenophon in his historical work Anabasis (379371 b.c.).
2. Literary. any military expedition or advance.
[170010; < Greek: a stepping up. See ana-, basis]
Do not confuse today’s word with today’s song.
It’s another one senselessly and brutally maimed to make a “single” version. Enjoy it in its uncut splendor. This is as funky as a fat, bald Englishman can get.
I like today’s song.
Good morning to you!
Anabasis of today’s “Good Morning”ing is that everyone feels good and is happy, right?
Not necessarily. Today I’m celebrating that Popeye’s has its regular Tuesday lunch special.
And that it’s one of those special days that ends in “Y”.
You thinking about fried chicken at 7 AM?
TheWon’s anabasis to Africa is costing us a fortune. Wonder who many Obama voters will be getting a vacation this year?
who = how
I start with cookies.
I actually don't think about Cheerios, even when I'm eating them.
All of them, all year long. Same as last year.
You ever notice that there are essentially two kinds of cereal? One kind you can finish while it’s still swimming in the milk. The other kind, you have to “drain the swamp” in order to finish it.
The title is taken from the structure of an early version of the song. Guitarist Mike Rutherford explained in an interview that the band labeled various sections of the song with letters of the alphabet, and at one point the sections were ordered A-B-A-C-A-B. Rutherford commented that the completed song no longer followed this format, but the name was kept nevertheless.
i love that song.
i love that one too.
Reminds me of the SouthPark where they put all the kids on ritalin and then they wanted to go to the Phil Collins concert....
The mainstream media’s hypothesis
Has Obama leading the anabasis
Against social injustice
His motto is “Trust us”
With a “Let me be clear” just for emphasis
