Word For The Day, Tuesday February, 18, 2014
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. the act of inferring.
2. an inference; conclusion.
[152535; < Late Latin illātiōn- (stem of illātiō ) a carrying in, equivalent to Latin illāt ( us ) suppletive past participle of inferre to bring in, bear in ( il- il-1 + lātus brought, earlier *tlātus; see tolerate) + -iōn- -ion ]
el ramo [RAH-moh]
En la puerta había un ramo de rosas rojas.
By the door was a bouquet of red roses.
2 hour delay today, but a lot better than I thought it might be. It’s already above freezing and we’re heading up to 40 today.
titillation: the art of inferring that a woman who went from 32AA to 36DD probably had implants.
Ugh. In training today.
Since we are in training, I’m gonna assuming we is a gonna get illated and illuminated.
I bow to your superior punage for today...
But I’ll be back!
only got an inch overnight, but it’s going up to 50 today and will be in the upper 50s all week. 59 by friday. hopefully the snow will melt. the snow pack was hard enough that chan can skitter along on top of it, but i am betting after today she is going to be getting stuck as she falls through. Mr. Fox was out and about in the front yard across the street, yesterday, visible from the study window, and those two went INSANE.
The snow got too deep for my doggie last weekend. Now he’s relieving himself on the shoveled edge of the driveway.
My son shoveled long paths through the side yard and circling the picnic table so that our dog can run. Buffy can run to her heart’s content. She has discovered that the snow is hard and she can climb on top of it, too. Her fur has come in thick for winter and she doesn’t seem to even get cold.
Snowing steady here.
they have been going on the front walk, but they are obsessed with the far front corner of the yard. don’t know if that’s where the fox frequents or what, but that’s where they bee-line to when they are let out. she has kept looking down there for the past week or so and lately figured out she could get there by walking on top of the hard snow.
Host Bob Schieffer asked Shepherd whether the recent spate of storms that have hit the East Coast was the result of “things that are happening here on earth.”
OMG it was so depressing and bleak up there. At least we have sun here even when it’s cold. I said to my husband, this is why we cannot ever live there, it’s just awful! and he agreed, but said that he liked to look around and see everyone wearing SU stuff and supporting his team. NOT ENOUGH reason to live there, that’s for damn sure! we went to the Wegmans in DeWitt which is very nice, to get stuff for xsboy. I also got some SU pasta and the Otto cheesecurls, for my colleague who is married to the Gtown fan to serve at home!
What a total crock.
It’s a dang blasted snowy bleak 28 here. Depressing as hell. Globull warming is bunk. Twist it any way you want, cold is COLD....not warm.
You can’t deny that they are, indeed, happening here on earth.
And not on Mars, for example.
You could pretty much tell from the granny mullet.
I would imagine a fox would drive them nuts! lol
Soon they will blame increasing ice caps on global warming too
I don’t have that problem at home, but at work. Every time i get near a water fountain or door handle.
America demands Justice for the Fallen of Benghazi!
That sounds like fun!
it was! i just love him, he’s so totally unaffected and not at all a “tough guy”. Maybe because he’s Senagalese and not American, i don’t know. the gf also was not what you would expect a basketball stud’s gf to look like. She was very short, MaryLouRetton-esque almost, and looked athletic like that, fresh-faced and not one of the overly made up hussies.
Mine does that, too.
I was guessing that with the name “Moussa” he probably wasn’t European.
she was shorter than i am and i am 5’4”
her head came to like mid-chest on him, and he’s 6’10”
reluctantly leaving the babe portion of this discussion: did I read this right that your son plays hockey for Syracuse?
yes, it’s D1 Club hockey. Their national championship equivalent of march madness is first week of March in Delaware. They will prob be killed in the first round, they are seeded 19th and playing Oakland, a school from MI. But it’s their first time in the history of the school to make the nationals, so exciting for them. We will hopefully make it up for the first [and last] game, since DE is an easy drive.
Yeah, he’s the designated tweeter. ;-)
hey he played on Saturday! and the tweets sucked!
Very very cool!!!! Congrats all around man!!!!
I was wondering why “he” didn’t name you “fan of the game.”
he had to actually make the team. they have a new coach this year who is SUPER into it, and has big plans. They are supposedly going to play ASU next year etc. lots more travel and lots more $, he is graduating at just the right time. There are several kids from Canada on the team. That’s always a sign of a good program. Believe it or not, Jerry Falwell’s Liberty U in Lynchburg, VA, is a hockey powerhouse, it’s a D1 program, and they have 12 kids from Canada. They had a “pairings” show online yesterday at 8 pm for Nationals. xsboy sent us the link so we watched, where they gave out the seeds and games for the national tourn and talked about each program, it was cute.
“he” did institute the “fan of the game” idea for hockey though!
being it was senior weekend, parents had to go out onto the ice and mom’s got flowers [orange carnations] from their boy and posed for a pics. I assume we will see those at some point. anyway, when we did that in HS, Gonzaga put out a carpet on the ice for us to walk out there. SU did NOT, and i had to walk on the bare ice. i was terrified i was going to end up on my @$$!
Sounds like poor planning. Though I guess up there they expect everyone to be used to walking on ice!
Glad it is thawing out at last-
Many fools believed the illation
That Obamacare would be great-
But people in Oregon were duped
By government lies in their state
Few have paid for any coverage-
Even the website is on “hold”
All their money has been wasted
On the lie that they were sold
If Oregon is the just first place
Where all this fraud was found
With California already broke,
That state will be run aground
And what a real woman in Hillary’s shoes would have done-
Dejó un ramo de espinas para su marido infiel...
Good grief-someone did not think ahead-I hope no one fell...
no, no one did, and i didn’t go way out to the center, he skated over to near the entrance and i didn’t go out more than a few steps!
Last night when I took Husky girl outside, the most bizarre commotion started when the cows in a pasture up the road got spooked by something and were carrying on like a small stampede that set off neighbors’ horses and goats. That was certainly interesting enough-then the donkeys across the river started braying, and some dogs started barking. I was looking all around to see what happened, but nothing was out of the ordinary.
Husky girl was standing alert, growling quietly till a pack of coyotes someplace upriver started up-she started howling back, and then the mastiff two properties over sounded like the hound of the Baskervilles, it was earsplitting, and lights started coming on at every house. Everything got quiet after those donkeys finally shut up, so we went inside.
I figured the only things that would spook cattle like that were predators-so it must have been a cougar, since there aren’t any rustlers around here that I’ve heard about, and people do have llamas and donkeys to keep cougars away from livestock. I went looking for tracks along the riverbank early this morning, but I didn’t see any, so the animal panic is still a mystery...
Don’t you have any neighbors with ostriches?
No ostriches nearby, just 6 or 7 emus that one neighbor keeps. Donkeys and llamas are tame, and much, much easier to get along with than ostriches, so they are the stock guardians of choice here.
