Word For The Day, Day, Date
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. a group of people who associate closely. 2. an exclusive group; clique. 3. a group of prairie dogs occupying a communal burrow.
Etymology: 173040; < French, Middle French: an association of tenant farmers < Medieval Latin coter ( ius ) cotter2 + -ie -y3
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.
Within their coterie of communist cronies, this administration has a significant number of muslims.
No pushing at the door please!
headachy and out of sorts, so your grades may suffer... ; )
The Obama coterie is about to find out what it means to be held accountable.
Please God let this be true. A+++
when you see them all splayed out like that, it really does take your breath away. A+++
It’s a beautiful day today, isn’t it? A bit chilly, at 37 degrees, but a lovely day nonetheless.
Nice to see, 8 games into the postseason, that the Penguins decided to start acting like they care.
And for those not inclined to watch hockey, tonight Jack Bauer returns!
There were uncharacteristically harsh words for Crosby and the Penguins in the pregame, on that score. Speaking of scoring, did 87 score? i watched the first 2 periods but then went up to bed.
No goals, no. Not that he had no impact, mind you. Still not doing so hot on faceoffs.
The game was tense until about 3 minutes left, when the Pens scored the insurance goal. Then the empty netter makes it 3-0.
The “dudes” in Barack’s little coterie
Spin in circles like some devilish rotary
But they’re all getting hosed
As Benghazi’s exposed
Come November, count votes with a notary
afraid to hope, but hope nevertheless. A++++
could not even bear to read tweets about it, it is an abomination. A+++
need a better link
I hope that is close enough. Oh, coterie. Nevermind.
the third definition of coterie: a group of prairie dogs occupying a communal burrow, reminds me of the fawning adulation of the Whitehut press corpse (intentional misspelling because journalism is dead.)
makes me puke! A+++
positively loathesome creature. A+++
19 more days
The coterie of Crosby bashers needs to note that it’s not only scoring goals that makes a difference. He has played really well, in spite of the rumor of a nagging back injury, and has led the team. Lundqvist was outstanding.
Wasn’t Kosar just busted for DUI?
Yes, Lundqvist made some outstanding saves.
I think he was busted a while ago. He just pled out recently.
I knew I saw some blurb about him recently. Can’t believe a cop in Ohio busted him.
Call your headache a 'mood disorder' and claim disability payments for it!
19 days is no time at all! you will be hauling around a ball and chain for the rest of your life< LOL!!!
beautifuL! love the dresses! first communion was at St James this past weekend also. i went to 8:30 am Mass and communion was slated for 10:30. they had a sign on the door telling first communion parents to wait until Mass was over to come in. And Father Happy Slap did the Mass to make sure it was done expeditiously. no sermon and we were out in 25 min. No way he was going to let Father Horkin do it, bc he goes on forever [young guy, but prob on the aspergers spectrum and ritualistic to a fault] and the first communion parents would be storming the doors!
hA! i’m feeling moody, think i will go file a claim! LOL! A++++
I’ve had a ‘mood disorder’ ever since Obama was elected in November of 2008.
I saw that article this morning and immediately thought it would ban Christians from gathering during the end times...
isn’t that the dang truth! i know i have!
Oh that is funny!
Wow - breaking news: Supreme Court rules prayers that open town council meetings do not violate Constitution!!
Nice video. Are the twins yours, and which ones were they?
We had some sad news this weekend; our Assistant Pastor (from Colombia, SA and a 2 year old priest) has been transferred to Burlington, WI. We all love Fr. Yamid Blanco. He gave the most tender ‘goodbye’, thanking us all for helping him to grow on his path from ‘baby’ priest to where he is today. He received the longest standing O I’ve ever heard in our church.
The Archbishop is sending him to Burlington where he will rotate among 3 churches, saying Spanish Masses and catering to Spanish speaking parishioners.
This is a man who came here from Colombia to enter the Seminary and spoke not a word of English at the time. He’s doing so well with his language that the congregation now laughs on cue when he tells jokes. We couldn’t understand him at all when he joined us 2 years ago. Now, everybody understands him.
But, there was a big laugh when he bid us ‘goodbye’ with his usual “Ciao, ciao!” and the organizt answered, “Auf Wiederzwein!” representing our largely German population.
For leadership on the Left, the criterion is to be from a coterie of ‘Rats from the same hole
Hope you’re better soon (too much Cinco de Cuatro partying yesterday ;?)
far too many of these coincedental things lining up with the end times prophecies.
teetotalers hangover, LOL! it is either allergy or hormones. A+++
I can hardly wait.
just teasing about the ball and chain, one of xshub’s friends always brings his wife along to the fairly regular conferences they attend, now that their kids are all grown and out of the house and xshub will always relate to me that X brought the old ball and chain again. She is the only woman he’s ever referred to that way, and it is actually pretty understandable, knowing her. She’s a contrarian, very negative and just obstreperous. I don’t like talking to her either.
and there’s that BONUS of the honeymoon too! what’s not to like about a big party followed by a vaca!
well i am assuming that the bride’s family is covering the cost of the big party.
