Word For The Day, Monday, 9/16/13
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. to renounce, repudiate, or retract, especially with formal solemnity; recant: to abjure one's errors. 2. to renounce or give up under oath; forswear: to abjure allegiance. 3. to avoid or shun
Etymology:140050; late Middle English < Latin abjūrāre to deny on oath, equivalent to ab- ab- + jūrāre to swear; see jury1
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....
Here is my example with WFTD.
Even the unions abjure obamacare, but still we are marching towards that cliff.

No pushing at the door please!
morning. busy weekend, i’m tired.
Now even Big Labor abjures the bogus “Affordable Care Act”!!!!
PHOOEY to obamacare!!!! Defund, impeach, and repeal!!!!
I’m waiting for the plumbers to call. We’ve got a clog in the lines somewhere and water backing up from under the basement toilet when we flush upstairs.
you kinda copied my homework, but that’s ok ; ) A+++
morning, what ridiculous outfit have you trussed your poor dog up into today?
YOIKS that is very not good!
Me too. That's why I'm ready to abjure the weekend and go to work where I can rest up.
that’s about right! A+++
A superman shirt from Build-aBear,
Plumber? Go get a snake?
Kant sucks anyway. I hope the guy that got shot was the Kantian.
oh ok, so his norm is going to be clothed from now on, like a human? RME. Halloween costume is ok, a sweater when it’s freezing outside is ok, but daily garb? buy a damn DOLL for heaven’s sake.
No, we are keeping the windows open, and its chilly.
he's got big sharp pointy.....
and he can leap about
LOOK AT THE BONES MAN!
I know my strengths and weaknesses. I’ll add outlets and switches any day, but i am not going to remove a toilet.
do not blame you in the slightest!
You dont need to remove the toilet to snake.
You can go from the toilet,,,or failing that the outside cap.
(I once worked in an APT Complex)
90 pct of the time you wont even get dirty.
I’m sure it will be fine. Scary. We had a guy come looking for his estranged wife (who works here) this spring, then started stabbing himself.
That’s how it should be done. They(the crazies) usually attack the right one last.
Maybe next time.
As Dirty Harry Callahan said in Magnum Force, "a man's got to know his limitations."
He came in right through the front entrance. The other entries have turnstiles that require a badge to open. They will likely put on there as well.
Just jagging ya Dave.
I agree with you. I Will do electric, and dry plumbing, drywall whatever, but poop gets the phone call....lol.
Everyone who voted for Owe-bama and doesn’t abjure that horrendous choice should be shot for treason.
In their efforts to shoot an unarmed man who was "acting erratically" they manage to shoot two bystanders.
A+++ thats for sure!
A+++ i’d settle for deported ; )
oh great! A+++
Yes, I have lifted that one for use around the office.
Lol, she gives you an A, but has no problem with it.
We have had fhis conversation before.
What a La Raza member says to someone who objects to their "vision" of a Greater Aztlan ....
Correctly read...Drunk big guy on 8th Ave, causes armed morons to open fire, witnout provocation.
Check like the 4th pic down. A dozen cops.
Couldnt subdue an unarmed man.
Shot two bystanders.
And let me tell you right now...thats 10 million for each, conservatively... Thats the going rate in NY for someone that gets hit by falling tree limbs in the park,
And now...effed over by Skyler,Walt Jr., and the baby...the devolution is complete.
Does the ricin recovery wind up at Hanks funeral?
I’m have no clue as to how the ricin is going to be used.
If the toilet was clogged, I might try with the metal snake I have. But this is the main sewer line under the house. He’s going in with the power tools.
I thought Walt, Jr acted like a pussy.
Still not sure why Walt would blab on the phone like he has in the past two weeks. My wife thought he might have been trying to lay down legal absolution for Skyler and talking like that on purpose last night. I can’t tell any more.
I agree - I can do lots of things around the house but unclogging toilets is not one of them!
Late to class today because it’s my birthday. Normally I abjure birthdays, but this is a biggie. One of my daughters sent the most beautiful flowers over the weekend, and I’m taking a Tres Leches cake to work as my “birthday treat” for the staff.
I didn’t bake it — I bought it at Cosco and it looks luscious. It has a caramel glaze over the top. I could not find anything like it among the hundreds of photos of Tres Leches on the Web. Several layers with filling between the layers.
So, I won’t be abjuring cake today. With our small staff, I figure that we’ll each get 2 pieces.
Very clever of me, don’t you think? Today is one of a couple of Mexican Independence Days, and I’m bringing a Mexican dessert!
happy birthday! are you sending one of those cakes in HERE For our class to enjoy??? i am not familiar with a Tres Leches cake. what three milks are in it?
From the recipe above: “Tres Leches Cake is a very moist cake filled with a mixture of “milks.” It is a favorite Mexican and South American Dessert. I got the recipe from Chela, my housekeeper who is from Mexico. The Cake preparation includes 3 parts: the cake, the filling, and the frosting.”
From what I read, the name comes from using milk in 3 different parts of the cake. Mine does not have fruit on it. Just the caramel glaze and a big, flaky piece of chocolate. It’s very pretty.
Reading the recipe the cake incorporates milk, cream, and condensed, sweetened milk. Thus! tres leches.
