Word For The Day, Monday, June 9, 2014 maleficent
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".
maleficent; adj.doing evil or harm; harmfully malicious: maleficent destroyers of reputations.
Etymology:167080; back formation from Latin maleficentia maleficence; see -ent
Hailing from the Latin word meaning "the dice" or "chance" alea, aleatory first surfaced in English in the late seventeenth century.
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.
Well of course we figured he figured he was far more maleficent than a mere deserter.
A+++ his maleficence is mindboggling.
Obviously there was not a maleficent bone in that beauty’s body! My condolences to you.
thank you. We had 8 more months than we thought we would have with her, after the bad episode in late October, and she was happy up until the very end. we will miss her very much.
The biggest fault in a dog is that they don’t live as long as we do.
Am I the only one that finds it strange that the private still hasn’t spoken with his parents?
A+++ none of them is stupid- they are arrogant and willfully maleficent, but not stupid, so there has to be a method to their madness.
Bowe Bergdahl the traitor, maleficent
Susan Rice says that he is magnificent
Served with honor, distinction
Tried for US extinction
Our reward for 5 killers not worth a cent
yes, i don’t get it. xshub thinks that maybe he’s being prevented from talking to them until they can keep their stories straight, but they seem to be saying it’s his decision not to speak to them.
the maleficent policies of the Obama administration are bringing this once great nation to its ruin...
AND at breakneck speed at that! A+++ welcome to word for the day : )
condolences to you too. it is very hard. Julius had my daughters and i sobbing yesterday because he clearly was going all over the house looking for her, even though he was pressed up right next to me on the couch when she passed away in my lap.
thanks. i have some errands to do, so xsbaby and i will be out for awhile. i will let the dogwalker, Patty, have time with Julius while we are gone. i know i will bawl when i see Patty again.
Yes indeed she is A+++
Indeed. Sorry xs.
For a long time now, American citizens have felt anemic at the polls with the Democrats and GOP-e differing very little in their approach to our current problems. However, we do need to find & support Conservative candidates of conviction, so as not to have the aftermath of this "Epic Fail" cemented into our system for generations to come.
Excellent A ++++
Condolences on your beloved Chanel ... It’s always tough to lose a pet, after all they ARE family.
This is really a stretch, but here goes. I’m old enough to remember when post cards were maleficent (mail of a cent).
It works! A+++
I was so sad to hear she had passed. (my kindle kept acting up when I tried to type a message back to you) She is playing with her brother Loosh about now in doggie heaven. No concerns anymore.
Terrible writing, worse sentiment. Sure, his parents can visit him in the brig for the rest of their lives. That works for me.
Susan Rice has a price. She sold out again.
Good morning - I’m so sorry about the loss of your precious Chanel - it will be a bit quiet in your house for awhile.
Thanks. Took the day off to grieve and figured we could try to get xs baby’s passport. Because she was 14 it expired when she turned 18. And bc she’s now an adult its a new process. The merrifield post ofc has a passport ofc. We took the forms home last werk, filled them out, had her pix done and all the documentation. Were told if you come at 9 you can get on the standby list. I made an actual appt for a day in July but thought if we can just get this done today all the better. At 9 there were 20+ There already and it was a third world nuthouse and after 2.5 hrs we left without the passport. My nerves are shot.
Come up here. Thursdays the Westmoreland County courthouse’s prothonotary office is open till 6. They will do the whole thing for you, take the pictures, etc. Of course, it helps if you fill out the forms beforehand.
We got my wife a passport and my daughter a passport card for our trip to Niagara Falls. Only took about 3 weeks to get them back.
I’m glad you had the extra time, and so sorry she was lost-losing a much loved pet is awful. Is Jules doing okay?
Sometimes you wonder where
Some insane ideas come from-
And if those who promote them
Are maleficent or just dumb
Like all the silly whining
About what other people eat
What they consider enjoyable
From website to edible treat
Nannies should mind their own-
Otherwise the whole Obama bunch
Will be held to the preaching-
Beginning with Michelle’s lunch...
“Susan Rice has a price” You made a rhyme right on time...
You are right-the writer needs a grammar coach-we do expect elected officials we sent to DC to speak better than we do-don’t we?
yes, i had people in the passport ofc saying oh there’s an ofc in DC etc where there’s no wait. I will take my chances, this place is 2 min from my house.
i think he is ok, he looks a little sad, but right now he is barking his ass off at the workmen across the street that he can see from the study window. OH let me tell you what happened this AM. i was sitting at the kitchen table he was at my feet, xshub had left for work about 5 min or so before and i hear this thumping around in the garage. i thought, what did he forget that he’s back here for? and he didn’t come in and i still heard the thumping so i went out to see what he was doing and as i opened the door from the laundry room to the garage i saw what i thought was a mangy looking cat exiting the garage, but when he turned to look back at me i saw the BANDIT EYES and thought OMG a damn raccoon is in my garage trying to get into the dog food bins in there! He could not get the tops off, because the one screws on, and the other has a clasp. i swear we have aggressive wildlife in this neighborhood! we had a doe in the yard literally 5 feet from the house, eating apples which fall in our yard from the neighbor’s tree last weekend and then again this past Saturday, and then we had had the fox on the back deck a few months back. i feel like they are all pressed up against our windows wanting to come in the house with us, LOL!
That is so cool to have the critters come in so close in the burbs, isn’t it? They are the dominant ones out here, so they are everywhere, but I love having them around, even if it means I have the garden fenced.
Those locking can tops work really well-the only varmint that can get into them are rats, and maybe determined squirrels-and only if the container is plastic.
You want my family of bears? Mama and four cubs. Sounds like they would fit right in.
i’ll expect them to be knocking at the front or back door!
positively chilling. A+++
