Word For The Day, Monday, 6/16/14
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".
pertaining to or marked by fever; feverish.
Etymology:164555; < Neo-Latin, Medieval Latin febrīlis. See fever, -ile
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.
The febrile worship of the ghey proceeds apace.
No pushing at the door please!
aprile -- a month in the Chaucerian calendar.
I don’t get the second one...? A+++ for the first though ; )
I need to get to the park and get the run done early before it gets hotter and I risk going febrile.
yes, supposed to be 91 and muggy today. a hot and humid week ahead. very different than the overcast and CHILLY weather in upstate NY this past weekend! it was 57 on Sat AM!
That was a gross story, BTW. The comments were pretty bad too. I feel sorry for people who think this is a good thing.
I know, it was shocking to me. The father sounds gay himself, but there’s no way to tell from the article. The comments were really sad.
I think the rest of the class is waiting for the ping.
aha! I am so disoriented this AM. I copied the ping list but must have gotten distracted before pasting it into a post.
Hope everyone had a good Father’s day yesterday. It was kind of eclipsed by our niece’s wedding this weekend, as was Mother’s Day by xsboy’s graduation last month.
Lois Lerner’s excuse, really feeble
Has gotten my blood boiling, febrile
They said this cold female
Lost every email
Completely legit, to the sheeple
I would welcome “febrile” this AM, it’s been so cold here in recent days. It’s supposed to be 80 this afternoon, but not until AFTER a moriing of T storms.
What kind of books are you selling?
Febril ... Aren’t those the 31 days of dribbling snow and drizzling rain we March through to get to April’s showers?
I thought it was the IRS that lost them, but regardless, it is an outrage and NO ONE can possibly think it’s legit. A++++
good for you! A+++
yes, that was upstate NY this past weekend, where we were for a family wedding. Felt distinctly odd to walk out of the hotel into a COLD outdoors, after leaving VA which has been hot and humid lately.
ill-advised ensemble. AND seriously, what mother to be wears Christian Louboutin pumps[with the iconic red soles, as seen on the feet of K Guilfoyle, on the Five]?
Speaking of food and celebrities, I came across this article this morning. It's sort of fun and taught me a few things I hadn't known before. The pictures are nice, anyway.
that made me HUNGRY!!
Indeed! She's being criticised elsewhere -- not because of how the pants fits -- but because she had the audacity to wear LEATHER to a Wildlife Fund raiser! [gasp!]
Today is the first day it has really felt like summer here. Very sticky.
The wedding went off great, weather was excellent. The best man’s toast was awesome. Lots of pulled pork in my refrigerator.
We may have a chicken casualty. The one smallest one got picked on real bad last night. They took her to the vet to see if they can do anything. You can see her skull, so I’m not hopeful there.
They truly are savages. I’m sorry. How are the ducks doing?
The ducks are fine.
This was the bantam chicken that we have been keeping inside some nights. She had been staying with the second flock (betas) instead of her original alpha flock, with the reds.
Last night when I closed them up, she was with the alphas. I thought she had more sense.
Allegedly, they were lost when her computer crashed. Of course, they have backups all over the place. They are just lying and inviting republicans to do something about it.
I think they are on it. Some have requested the NSA pull up the meta data, which would show where things were sent and then those hard drives could be obtained for content. They have all the info and are just playing a game. We’ll see if anyone is up to the task of holding them accountable for their lies and obfuscation.
God-what is wrong with some people? That shouldn’t even be a joke...
I’m working on an estimate I need to deliver later...
Obama and his minions try
To put lipstick on the pig
Of a disaster that is Iraq,
But it is already too big
Their febrile attempts only
Make it seem worse every day
And all the terrorists know
Now is the time to come play
Maybe kidnap a soldier or two-
For some friends, or some cash-
Dig up and use all the weapons
Obama left there in the trash...
My compadre at work is convinced we are about to experience Saigon deja vu, choppers and all-and I think he is right...
The dog did not eat her homework-they are lying, lying, lying...
I don’t know who annoys me more - the liars or the cowards.
I’ll take door number 1-lying is intentional-cowardice is despicable, but it doesn’t require the conscious use of an agenda...
Old text books, some Ann Coulter, Clarence Thomas. Here is the link to my "store" http://www.amazon.com/gp/aag/main?ie=UTF8&asin=&isAmazonFulfilled=&isCBA=&marketplaceID=ATVPDKIKX0DER&orderID=&seller=A3L7HJDBIG7CD1
Thanks. I probably have more of those than you do. :) I gave tons of my mom’s books away when we closed up her house. I couldn’t ship them, and I had no way of handling their sale. The “expert” that the estate sale manager brought in did nothing, except take the best for herself and the bookcases too! I was 2000 miles away and had no say in it. I’m trying not to relive it!
Some of mom’s books were valuable, but I just have to forget all about it.
I said the same last week.
You did the best you could and that was enough. A mother would not have expected more.
Thank you. I still have a lot of stuff to go through. I was heartened to hear someone on Antiques Roadshow (British version) say the other day, “You are NOT required to give a home to somebody else’s collection...”
I have quite a few 1st editions of Clive Cussler and Tom Clancy. I also have a bunch of really old Mark Twains. We had most of our stuff in storage for 8 years and now it is like Christmas opening up things and finding things we forgot about. Of course we are also doing the “What the heck did I keep this for...?” with a number of items.
you went there did you? ; ) A+++ hope everything comes out ok for ya.
MrT5 told me about the feelings of bitterness and betrayal he and the rest who served in Nam had when they saw the choppers landing-and my compadre, who was also there said he knew exactly how our soldiers must feel right about now...
I’ve been singing this song ever since I got home-I don’t remember hearing it on a classic rock station recently, and I am surprised I remember some of the words...
“Once I said I wanted you, I don’t remember why
I often wonder if it’s true that you could make me cry
I only know it’s long ago you said I love you too
But I got one solution that we’re gonna start anew-
How do you do, mm mm
I thought Wa-na Na-na Na-na
Just me and you, and then we can Na-na Na-na
Just like before, and you will say Na-na Na-na
Please give me more, and you will think Na-na Na-na
Hey that’s what I’m living for”...
Never heard of it. Bubble gum?
glad you had a good wedding, and i am sure you gave a great speech. The Best man at my niece’s wedding did a great job, he got choked up and i was moved to tears. he did a far better job than the maid of honor did, bc her’s was kind of snide and sarcastic and she was trying too hard to be clever. The bride had had her deceased mother’s bridal gown made into a baby doll style white dress which she wore to the rehearsal dinner. They also used the satin from what was cut off of my SIL’s gown to use to cover the stems of the bouquets, so it was very touching and they paid much homage to her in lots of little ways.
A+++ hope you get the job!
i am very sad about your chicken!
Definitely bubble gum-early 70-ish. I had a friend who would always start singing it every time it played on the radio.
