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.
I think it’s fantastic that she is doing that on Sunday nights. Is it for young people? What are they studying?
The math is on our side.
The idiodemocratic news media are to blame for excusing and promoting the destruction caused by the Obama regime, but - then again - they “believe” in it a THEIR faith and moral foundation.
South by Southwest (SXSW) is a set of film, interactive, and music festivals and conferences that take place early every year (usually in March) in Austin, Texas, United States.
i am comfortable with having God know that i am willing to sacrifice yummy desserts for the entire length of lent, you be comfortable abiding by the letter of the law ; )
yes, it’s for young people. i need to have her find out if she can contribute in some way for the food. one of her friends is a parishioner there and i imagine it’s coming out of the church budget, but i feel with her eating dinner there every sunday, she should contribute in some way. i will have to ask her what they are studying.
I think of it as a thoughtful concession to human nature.
How about the last snow post of the winter.......the last post in frigid temperatures of the winter. Who cares what the dang calendar says, if it’s STILL cold and snowy.
Our priest officially announced that it is our choice to take Sundays off or not, either way is good. I, too, am fasting for Lent. Lost some weight already. I didn’t go without all desserts, though...a couple of times a week I indulge. I hadn’t realized how much stuff just pops into my mouth between meals, though. I am finding it’s too easy to do now that I am well into Lent. Hopefully, I can keep it up after.
I am off for my day...breakfast, Mom’s prayer group this morning, mass, then the doctor’s office. I am falling apart. RME Hopefully, we can do the knee injections again. My left knee is giving me problems.
Just read a really good book...I highly recommend it. “Heaven is Here”, by Stephanie Nielson. She has a blog, the NieNie Dialogues. The book is the story of her plane crash and recovery. I alternately smiled and cried my way through the book. Quite a journey, and quite a lot of faith in God.
I am sensing some exasperation.
Story of my life this last week. I am desperately in need of prayers.
Why would you show us that? You know T5 is scared of that happening to her SUV.
idiosyncratic - a phenomenon that occurs when idiots synchronize their thoughts, beliefs and activities with those of the Democratic Party.
i was worried it was going to keel over off the bridge!
la velocidad que estamos en transición hacia la primavera no es lo suficientemente rápido para mí.
and i think of it as lowering the bar ; )
i will say some for you! i know the winter is long and hard up there and it takes a mental toll.
Holy carp! I drove trucks in winter before I went to college, and it sure felt like that some days when i was driving way out west, but I sure never flipped a rig. That’s scary stuff!
Skip the poison ivy, add some capers and a little kosher salt and you have awesomeness in your hand! YUMMMMMMMM!!!!
I’ll take that over donuts or any sweets for breakfast any day of the week!
If I wanted to eat fish for breakfast, I’d have been born in Japan.
It was a visual of what xs told you about Lent observances. My weather guy posted it this am.
i am with you there!
Another good one!
i am soliciting ideas for what to do at a bridal shower. xsgirls and i are hosting a shower for xshub’s niece who is getting married in June. Shower is april 5. tiny shower, only 5 girls plus bride invited, so less than 10 of us total. Our theme is April in Paris and it has been fun planning that aspect, and i have the menu planned. But we are wondering how we are going to spend the time, when not eating and opening the few presents. Anything that involves dispensing advice is out, as i will be the only married one there. we don’t want LEWD games either, soother. any ideas of things that they have seen or heard of being done that aren’t too lame or inappropriate would be appreciated. i haven’t been to a bridal shower in close to 30 years myself so....
Good catch on that definition!

I saw Dave’s reply to you about SXSW - what is amazing about the festival or gathering or whatever you want to call it is the growth of the thing! It really has become something that everyone who thinks they are someone in the arts goes to! We saw little updates each night on tv and Lady Gaga was there, sports stars, Jimmy Kimmel had his show from there all week. Beiber did a surprise set at a club. Pretty crazy for one of the smaller “big cities” in Texas
Including whacked out rappers who ram their car into people.
