Word For The Day, Wednesday, June 18, 2014-- skulduggery
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".
hear it pronounced
1. dishonorable proceedings; mean dishonesty or trickery: bribery, graft, and other such skulduggery.
2. an instance of dishonest or deceitful behavior; trick.
Origin: 1856, apparently an alteration of Scottish sculdudrie "adultery" (1713), sculduddery "bawdry, obscenity" (1821), a euphemism of uncertain origin.
Alternate spellings: skullduggery, sculduggery, scullduggery.
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.
Homework is due. This means you!
When I’m up to no good, I always put on my skuldungarees.
skulduggery = incompetent brain surgery?
Good morning from my hospital bed.
well look at you! how are you????
How’s it going?
Nauseous and moderate p ain, but physical therapy is coming.
Surgery went fine. Now I have to deal with getting better.
i’m sure you are hooked to a painkiller drip? be careful getting up the first time. i passed out before i even realized it, the first time i stood.
The neurosurgery here is at a minimum.
Dang spell check. I typed skulduggery.
Pain is not bad. No drip.
A group of us from my department is going to the Pirates game tonight. It’s supposed to be 90 degrees and have some storms, so hopefully we get the game in and don’t get completely drenched.
My paralegal was just in my ofc telling me she had a voicemail, ostensibly from the IRS, saying that there were allegations against her and that she should retain an atty etc. She called the # they left and it was the # for the Magic Jack, phone gizmo thing. She said several months ago, a guy she carpools with had had a voicemail scam saying it was the IRS, where they were asking for money orders to be sent to such and such an address etc. he called and got the police involved etc. The IRS said they will never call you. I said yeah, i know, they will send a certified letter that you have to go to the PO and sign for, bc that’s what we had to do. The acct is supposedly taking care of whatever it was, but it is a sickening feeling getting a letter with IRS postmark. Though now, honest to God i would LOOOOOVE for someone from the IRS to call me and say ANYTHING, bc i would unload on them about the Lois Lerner BS in a nanosecond!
then you are in a better position than i was, bc i def had narcotics for the first 24 hours. and i am not a wimp, it was standard procedure, you would press a button to dispense it to yourself.
sounds fun if you can stay dry. heard on the radio today heat index here is 105 today.
Benders and binders are coming, eh?
Good luck today.
Hey T! I’ll bet you are glad to have the surgery over with - I hope the PT is smooth!
Loved the cartoon!
Spell check changed skulduggery to neurosurgery?
Too bad it can’t change “Obama” to “Cruz.”
I do love a good limerick! Excellent!
did anyone see the Hillary interview on Brett/Greta last night? she said absolutely NOTHING. she blathered without saying a word, in the style of Obama. GayPatriot had tweeted how she was more likeable than Obama and i agree. not that i LIKE her, but Obama is SMARM on stilts, the hubris oozes from every pore. She doesn’t have that, but is equally loathsome in every other way. obvious EYE work and face tightening, you can’t have that chicken neck with a smooth face. and the WIDE eye look was just stupid.
I just saw that on Twitter. Obama’s ratings are lower than Bush after Katrina.
There are still 40% who approve. The normal 30% leftist morons boosted by racist blacks.
nightmarish. and the one on the right is pretty bad too...
Brett was hearing it on Twitter from people thinking he was too easy on her.
I can’t listen to Hillary for more than a few seconds. When she started defending her lies on Benghazi, I put it on mute. “That the attack was in response to the video was the best information we had at the time. “ (Complete lie.) “The video did cause some of the rioting.” (Yeah, one millionth of one percent, but that counts as “some.”)
Wife ran in when she heard me screaming at the tv.
“Where’s the baseball game?”
“Why do you think I’m watching a baseball game?”
“Because you keep screaming, ‘bunt, bunt!’”
“Uhh, I think you misheard me, dear.”
I’ve long said that if her hair is washed and styled, she is running for something. Before the senate race: styled, after: looked dirty. Even at times in the White House, her hair looked bad
Even Hillary is throwing them under the bus.
Interesting etymology I had always thought that the term originated with the actions of grave robbers.
Something ugly is going to end up happening because the media has failed to do its job. You thought it was bad when they got Obama elected. Now he is just daring anyone to call him out.
Will any of the “esteemed estates,” our institutions, stand up?
I am afraid that, with no justice and no truth, that some loner or band of loners is going to decide it is time to act.
It’s going to be a long time till November, and then a very interesting time after that.
I was in the kitchen making dinner and only half listening, it must have been the Five yesterday, where someone said that the media is starting to turn now that Obama is starting to make THEM look bad. can’t recall what the context was and what they were pointing to as an indication of them starting to cover more, be more critical etc.
I do honestly believe it’s going to come to violence of some sort.
I hadn’t been watching Fox for months, basically until hockey ended, and I have been struck by the animation and incredulousness of people like Oreilly, Kelly etc. But then Megyn will P me O by STILL saying something stupid. was it last night or night before she had Dinesh D’sousa on and she was saying something like: you almost make it sound like Obama HATES the US is anti-American, so WHY WOULD HE WANT TO BE PRESIDENT if he felt that way?
DUH!!!! seriously?? You think being leader of the free world and the power to FUNDAMENTALLY CHANGE the US isn’t an incentive? I couldn’t believe she made such a stupid point! Dinesh responded that it was kind of like if your dad is a child molester, and you still love him, but you want to prevent him from doing bad things. So then she was laughing and saying, oh so the US is a CHILD MOLESTING PEDOPHILE?? RME.
I heard Andrea saying she likes the World Cup cause she likes anything that makes daytime drinking acceptable. LOL
The skullduggery at the IRS
Has become almost amusing
School kids all have better
Excuses than they’re using
Computer crashes made files
Vanish into some empty space-
Yet another desperate attempt
To keep from losing their case
Someone should hire Snowden-
That might cause a sensation
If he salvages the hard drive
And retrieves the information...
yes I heard her say that too, she’s funny.
It sounds like you are doing great-I hope your PT session goes well, too...
