FRee Dictionary ^ | FRiday | FRiday's Sub

Posted on 02/07/2014 4:29:28 AM PST by tioga


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”.

Coruscate

In. Verb

    1. To give forth flashes of light; sparkle and glitter: diamonds coruscating in the candlelight.
    2. To exhibit sparkling virtuosity: a flutist whose music coruscated throughout the concert hall.


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....

Jay Leno will no longer coruscate the set of the Tonight Show. NBC can find a more accommodating comic who will not bash theOne with funny jokes. Leno bowed out for the second time last night saying "I don't like goodbyes, NBC does."

The only coruscation out there is the ice in the water bowls and on the surface of the pool, if we can coax the sun to come out from behind the clouds today.

In Sochi, the venue doth coruscate
But Russia is still such a horror state
In building the venue
Much graft on the menu
Corruption has led to a “Boris-gate”

Good luck today! We have a dentist in town who makes crowns on the spot in his office. I'm sure it costs more, but what a convenience! We may go to him next since our current dentist may have some Parkinson's starting.
And in current events, it depends on what kind of inequality gets you the votes.

I KNOW. I was in the shower when the call came in, I have to calm down a bit before calling them back to reschedule. Perhaps they will get it in the mail today and call ME back. I haven’t even spoken of the crown for fear of jinxing it.
That didn’t work out so well.

We just made dinner reservations at Turning Stone for Saturday May 10, which is grad weekend. There are 9 restaurants, only 4 appear to take reservations and two of the four were completely sold out. We wanted 7 pm but the only available time at the steakhouse was 5:15. Peach Blossom had 7 pm but luckily I scrolled down to see its Asian/Thai so that’s a no go. The guys will golf and we will explore the Destiny mall. I think I mentioned that a friend whose daughter graduated UVA last yr told me that you literally have to make lodging reservations a year out from graduation. We did and nabbed the last available rooms at the Hampton inn. Turning Stone, the Sheraton etc were all sold out. SU is not a huge factory school, not even as big as Pitt, but there just aren’t that many places to stay I guess. Thank God for my friend bc if you were hapless and tried calling the month or so before grad you are gonna be sol.

It’s out here. Quite beautiful with all the iced over trees and stuff coruscating in the sunshine.

While I’m sure its possible to get a room in pittsburgh closer to graduation, xshub told one of his employees about it and her daughter is at Pitt and graduating this year. She called that same day last May and was shut out of Oakland.

Hi. Sorry to be late to class. I've been busy coruscating all over the house because I just won a bid on E-Bay for a vegetable bowl that marches my mother's china that I brought back with me from California. I've never done E-Bay before last week, and this is the first time that I've actually bid on something.

My mother had no seving pieces because she preferred silver plate (which was stolen in the burglary by meth heads). I prefer china anyway because it keeps the food warm longer.

I'm awaiting the delivery of this one too that I bought outright, without participating in an auction.

I think I'll have to cook a special Valentine's Day dinner and serve it on these dishes.

Today's our anniversary, but my husband has taxes all over the dining room table. So, a special dinner cooked by ME will have to wait until Valentine's day. We'll do a movie and dinner out tonight.

The groomer just arrived to haul Jules down to his mobile grooming van. Channy is cowering in her room fearful that she’s next. She doesn’t know that I’ll never have her groomed again bc I don’t want to tax her poor heart.

A lot of us are pretty happy around Milwaukee because the Lipinski Stradivarius was recovered intact yesterday.

Last Winter Olympics, no one coruscated beauty more than Cheryl Bernard, the silver-medaling Skip of Canada's Curling Team:

This Olympics it's Russia's Anna Sidorova:

Is she pretty shaggy now? Whenever Oliver falls asleep next to me on the couch, that is prime scissor time for me to clip him where he needs it.

We’ll take your word for it since the link isn’t working right now. That is good news. I’m unhappy that my youngest doesn’t want to participate in her music school recital. They are all playing Ashokan Farewell and it will need some good violin participation. We were all playing it together the other night and my fingertips are still numb. Need new calluses. Or should that be callusi?

Destiny Mall is three stories of shopping....the new end was still not full last time I was there. If it wasn’t graduation weekend I would come up and meet you for lunch. Last time I stayed at the Syracuse Hotel it had just been redone and was nice. It’s was old fashioned and classy at the time. Can’t speak for it today. That was more than 10 years ago.

the only place she’s shaggy is her leg fringe. He doesn’t really clip anything else off of them. they are hairy beasts. we brush her and have bathed her in the utility tub, and they’ve clipped her nails for me at the vet.

xshub said the mall is quite nice. we had not been since xsboy’s freshman year, and it was not very impressive, but he was there that weekend in Oct where he had the 2 traumatic car experiences in 2 hours, the rear-ending and the railroad spike through the windshield. He said it’s quite impressive now. Hard to imagine besides the canadians coming to shop, how that place stays in business with the high end stores. Not enough people with $ in upstate nY to float that!

You don’t normally see them curling in their underwear.

Nor would you want to.
