Word For The Day, July 23, 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".
a state of nervous excitement, haste, or anxiety; flutter
[189095; origin obscure]
Don’t get yourselves into a swivet. I am here.
In before the ping!
It was actually cool enough to drive in this morning with the windows down. Rainy, of course.
The Brits are in a swivet over Baby Cambridge.
we were whirling like dervishes, wondering where you were!
Is that his name?
Nope, i wandered in Cool and slow, even called the english teacher Daddy-o.
Just had a routine doctor appt and bloodletting.
Unril they decide on a name, though youd have rhought that would have been figured out well in advance.
Methinks they are milking it.
Someone tweeted that they could work out a deal with Nike and call him “Jordan.”
My doctor is Theodoric of York.
I read that she’s been hired on by Fox, so look forward to more.
xshub’s IT guy and his wife were unable to agree on a name and the baby boy was two days in the hospital sans name. Literally as they were about to leave the hospital they settled on his name so it would be put on the birth certificate. the name— Maverick. They also had 9 mo to decide, i don’t think the royals are milking it.
She has been a fox contributor for some time, but never on the panel. if there’s enough pushback, hopefully Bret won’t ask her back. Jonah and others on twitter were equally appalled.
That would be the wise rhing to do. Especially since they change the name lwhen they ascend the throne.
Lineage counts for much among the Royals, and their popularity resides in publicity.
Jay Carney speaks carefully, no swivet
Deflecting each question with a pivot
One day he will die
And when St. Peter asks why
He’ll say, “My life is a lie, so I just live it”
Though we had a couple at the hospital when #2 was born, that couldnt decide. I just find it a tad kooky.
As much as I don't care, even I think they should do....this, anything less is a let down
Pretty sure that will happen....else they wouldnt have a zillion reporters still parked outside the hospital.
that would be hilarious!
When will they learn to stay out of the civil wars of others?
That’’s his name until he’s given a formal name. He could be known as Baby Cambridge for as long as 2 weeks. Then he’ll get (probably) 4 first names. Remember when diana got the order of Charles’ 4 names wrong during the wedding vows? Whe probably could have gotten an annulment, instead of a divorce for that blunder. They all have 4 names.
I couldn't agree with you more. I was literally screaming at the tv set. Detroit is a perfect, scientific experiment of what liberal policies do to a city. Blaming republican policies on its demise is like blaming the Mets' decline on George Steinbrenner.
I went to Arbys yesterday and they asked for a name for my order, so they can call me when its done.
Next time i am saying “Barrack” just for the laughs.
you have to record the reaction with your cellphone for that!
Oh that is her name? Sheesh - I told my husband “that boy would be a cute girl”...
it is every bit like being through the looking glass with Alice when trying to discuss anything with those people, it makes you feel like you are insane. their concept of reality is totally different. i think Charles may have a stutter, and last night, i felt like he was having to fight it more than usual because of his reaction to her insane arguments.
she was sooo thrilled to be on the panel and was a bit too loud and overeager, even apart from being over the moon and up obama’s butt on policy issues.
I'm pretty sure his stutter is the result of his paralysis.
she is a big woman isn’t she? But seriously - a man’s suit? Could she be more of a stereotype?
he controls it admirably. but when he’s agitated i think it becomes more of an effort. when you have a leftist puppet next to you, mouthing absurdities, i am sure it’s a great source of agitation!
Better than being named after John McCain, the original media pet maverick.
Oh HAHA - I know who you are talking about so that is understandable.
So, if you worry about running out of deodorant while standing in line waiting on the TSA/HSA/DOD/DOE/FBI/ATF/DOE/HUD and everybody else on the federal payroll to allow you to re-enter the country, can you be convicted of conspiracy to swivet in pubic?
It was so interesting talking to his parents. xshub was talking to Karim’s father about the situation in Egypt. They despise Obama.
Did you see this?
Did you see the pic i retweeted to you, of the guy at the Nats-Bucs game with LETS GO BUCS on his chest? one of my colleagues [the one from Pgh] said the guy was 5 rows behind him. Gotta love a pittsburgher. if i didn’t despise baseball, i would really have liked to see the Pierogie race.
yes, i did. Do the Furries really meet in Pgh?? and how do Furries differ from Bronies?
That was some serious chest hair. Scratch that, all over body hair.
That wasn’t a furrie. That was a stripper/adult film actress.
She was at the Pirate game, dancing in the aisles with the unicorn head on. It must have been some dance, for they decided to eject her.
But not before Officer Friendly (as yet un-named) decided to pose with her and the head.
And, yes, they meet here every year and the local media play it up with some stories. Not mentioning the entire thing is an excuse for orgies.
I don’t know if Bronies really exist, but if they do, they certainly are not having sex with each other. I hope.
so what’s the deal with the furries, they have sex dressed as various animals? and yes, bronies, unforch, do exist.
