Word For The Day, Day, 7/8/14
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".
1. friendly; agreeable: a convivial atmosphere.
2. fond of feasting, drinking, and merry company; jovial.
3. of or befitting a feast; festive.
Etymology: 166070; < Late Latin convīviālis festal, equivalent to Latin convīvi ( um ) feast ( convīv ( ere ) to live together, dine together ( con- con- + vīvere to live) + -ium -ium) + -ālis -al1
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.
There is an utter lack of reason to be convivial these days.
No pushing at the door please!
Despite the gloom of current events, the classroom will be a convivial one today because my baby is celebrating her 20th bday. 20 years ago today, I laid in a birthing room with the OJ preliminary hearing going on on tv; the knife was in the envelope being bandied about.
My kids are going up to a family reunion for the family on their moms side. I’m sure some of it will be fun, but overall, a less than convivial atmosphere. So glad I don’t do that crap with them anymore.
It’s in a campground, few of them can afford a hotel.
happy birthday xsbrownie!
Obama tries acting convivial
With speeches on subjects so trivial
Women’s right to free pills
After sexual thrills
Immigration? He’s steadfastly “oblivial”
"Mission accomplished. Waygu, rials, pesos and new voters for us.
"Swine fever, tuberculosis, and forced quartering for them."
A+++ good riddance to bad rubbish as the saying goes ; )
thanks! I will be serving cake shortly ; )
excellent! A++++ Oreilly, et al. are just incredulous at the daily goings on, and his obliviousness.
Happy Birthday! (And to the former teen as well).
Ugh. Need coffee to be more convivial.
Then again, if the illegal aliens keep coming in sick with TB, scabies, and pneumonia, syphilis, and lice, we will perpetually have conviral-infestations in our southern jails.
Which is why, of course, Obama wants them released from jail as soon as possible.
I have no teens left! that is mindboggling to me.
tammy bruce has been tweeting a pic of scabies, the tweet reads— is Obama’s new slogan “hope, change and scabies”? A+++
Many Years to you, and to your 20-year-old daughter!!!!
How’s’ that for you—a convivial post from Honorary Serb, rather than the usual!!!!
Growing older is a trivial accomplishment. The challenge for us now will be to figure out how to grow younger.
I am SHOCKED at the Honorary Serb’s conviviality!! ; ) thanks! A+++
Well, not growing older while growing younger without growing wider at least.
(But my high school blue jeans still fit as painting pants at least. Worn out a bit of course, but St Ronnie has made me replace my old shirts over the years though as the collars wear through.)
you LOOOOOVE to brag on your skinny@$$ed self, robt! ; )
When you blow into town, put up a tent and tall Jesus to separate the rubes from their money, it’s a con revival.
sounds cool! A+++
A+++ so what’s on tap today up there?
We’re going to go to Journey Behind the Falls this morning. Rain is supposed to come after lunch, so we’re heading out soon. Hope it’s not too long of a wait. We couldn’t find any way to make reservations online.
The Cloward-Piven on the border will not bode well for a convivial atmosphere in the country.
A+++ Is that his live-in? because doesn’t he have a wife with alzheimers in a home?
don’t drown! have fun! ; )
we are living Cloward-Piven on a daily basis, aren’t we? DAILY it becomes more and more clear. A+++
Thanks! You too with your birthday festivities.
Check on Twitter for pictures.
oh good! make sure that Sarah gets the pic of you going over the falls in a barrel! LMAO~!
Sadly, Im finding it harder and harder to have a convivial attitude, especially in dealing with those on the hard left.
Thanks! this weekend is the bachelorette— hairdos, bowling and bocce!
I am with you. Personally, this is a very fun time in our family’s life, with our eldest daughter getting married etc. but on the whole, the situation our country finds itself in at the hands of the leftists is extremely dire, IMO.
(If your gal were named appropriately, you'd be celebrating con Vivianly today ;)
thanks! we are celebrating her NATALie day today ; )
We have a valve supplier not to far from there taht I think needs an audit in September.
It’s not just the old jeans; i hear he still fits in his old high school girlfriend too
ok lois lerner, LMAO! ; )
yeah i’m quite sure Ronnie would stand for that, RME...
The first person to go over and survive was a woman — and she took her cat with her in the barrel. Now, that’s just crazy.
It’ll be convivial.
Happy birthday to your baby!
In the midst of this insanity
People are actually learning-
I guess they noticed the fire
When their world began burning
Better late than never I say,
Let’s be convivial and rejoice-
Illegals dumped on the doorsteps
Made so many find their voice
I don’t care how it happened-
I’m just glad more NIMBYs see
Obama’s minions think of them
As no different from you or me...
What a lunatic-wand why torture the poor cat like that?
