Word For The Day, Tuesday March 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".
idiosyncratic [id-ee-oh-sin-krat-ik, -sing-]
pertaining to the nature of idiosyncrasy, or something peculiar to an individual
la velocidad [beh-lohs-ee-DAHD]
La velocidad de los trenes japoneses es increíble.
The speed of Japanese trains is amazing.
Last Tuesday post of the winter!
you are an idiosyncratic pedant.
Wouldn't it be easier to just say idiotic?
Everyone is idiosyncratic.
Some just do it with more panache.
As long as you’re not gauche.
i gave up desserts for lent and that cake looks soooo good to me right now.
Pancakes are not dessert.
Oh, excuse me. I didn’t realize you two were having a moment.
I’ll just back out gracefully.
i am not big on pancakes, i like waffles better.
Same difference, just involves some specialized machinery.
Go to IHOP, get some chocolate banana strawberry cheesecake waffles with a scoop of ice cream.
Not dessert. Breakfast. Most important meal of the day. ;-)
Joe Biden, so idiosyncratic
Has bats flying ‘round in his attic
He’s manic, depressive
In other words, completely erratic
nope. i keep my lenten fast and don’t look for wiggle room ; ) xsbaby attends a bible study at St Philips on Sunday PMs and they serve dinner. There was bday cake for someone there and she declined, since she also gave up sweets for lent. the Catholics were all saying “but it’s SUNDAY” she said i don’t go by that. I know we have talked about that here. i think it’s lame to take Sundays off the Lenten fast. Jesus was 40 days in the desert, did he take Sundays off??
Every Sunday is a feast day. A mini celebration.
that was precisely the point of electronic medical records, they’ve got it ALL, right there.
yes, i realize that is the viewpoint of the slackers....
ok, i have been forgetting to ask, but can anyone tell me that the #SXSW is about? i kept seeing stuff about it on Twitter and couldn’t figure out what it was.
