Word For The Day, Tuesday July 22, 2014
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".
[157585; < Latin cunctātiōn- (stem of cunctātiō ) delay, equivalent to cunctāt ( us ) (past participle of cunctārī to delay) + -iōn- -ion]
la pesadilla [pehs-ah-DEE-yah ]
El tráfico de las 5:00 es habitualmente una pesadilla.
The traffic at 5:00 is usually a nightmare.
That didn’t take long.
My boss would like to know why I am so often late.
I’m wondering why I bother showing up at all.
We notice you’ve been missing a lot of work recently.
Well, I wouldn’t say I’ve been *missing* it.
My job puts the oxymoron into “gainful employment”.
I wouldn’t say Obama has been guilty of cunctation regarding the situation in the Middle East, but he certainly has been pussyfooting around.
The regular cunctation in producing evidence for government trials borders on criminal negligence. If we’re supposed to cough up 7 years of financial data on demand, they should be able to produce emails from a year ago.
I had a spider bite up near my eyebrow since last week, that wound has healed but now my actual eyeball hurts [the one nearest the bite] and it’s red, so I have an eye dr apt at 11 am. I thought it was a zit and squeezed the living hell out of it and probably released the venom into my blood stream. I had visions of the thing laying eggs in there too, so yeah, i’m grossing myself out with this and need medical attention, before I go out of town.
Try to look on the positive side. At least your strength and agility have been boosted. Now if you can figure out how to cast a strand of webbing ...
and let me add that I hope that my cunctation in seeking medical assistance for this issue doesn’t cause me a problem
Spiderman had some mad skills, so this might not be all bad.
I’m predicting that the first time you see the President in press conference, your spider-sense is gonna freak you out.
Eww and good luck.
I’ve got to see this spreadsheet. Did he do statistics? Make a pareto of the top excuses?
That article is worthless without pie charts
I was walking into a meeting yesterday and had my hands full. My phone starts ringing (Metallica “For Whom the Bell Tolls”) as I am walking in.
The manager running the meeting says to me “that’s a hell of an entrance.” It was like I had walk-on music at a ballgame or on a talk show.
women like that make me sick, and account for the stereotype. annoys the crap out of me. I counsel against that type of behavior every chance I get, and rest assured I will go into it with xsteen when the time is appropriate.
that’s pretty funny!
Halbig decision is out.
“the ACA unambiguously restricts...subsidy to insurance purchased on Exchanges ‘established by the State.’”
Please pardon my cunctation at posting a response to the WFTD.
Could we say that Obamas cunctation at enforcing the law and securing the border is putting the entire nation in danger?
On our way to and from the college tour yesterday, we noticed el tráfico era una pesadilla. Fortunately, we were going the other way each time. ;)
I think you grossed us out too.
Looks like Roberts will have to rewrite the statute from the bench again next year.
Para mí, quesadillas causan pesadillas.
Gotta vote today in the runoff elections here in GA.
Blah ..... The good conservative candidates picked up mostly third place results because the conservative votes were split among several different candidate, and the establish-repubbies set up only one per race.
We will be sentenced to a cunctation mark surrounded by clauses and pauses ....
That was mean but funny!
That is an entrance that will be remembered for awhile!
That thread was funny - but I’m thinking that marriage had a few more issues than just her turning him down or being disgustingly dirty
And he’s a jerk for creating the spreadsheet and she’s as bad or worse for publishing it where everyone could see it.
I thought he published it? But yes you are right - they both are messed up
We’re having computer problems here. Something highjacked my new tab page to bing with loud ads but I changed it back and now the spouse’s computer is playing ads with everything on it closed, no windows open, even playing while it is supposedly hibernating. What is going on?
I wonder if anyone has on their menu a pesadilla quesadilla?
Runoffs are almost as stupid as open primaries.
You know what is really stupid? Run off primaries that are open.
Whistling past the graveyard
Of every issue that arises
Obama’s minions perpetuate
Cunctation and bad surprises
Obama was out playing golf
And he couldn’t even smell
Anything from Israel or Russia
As both places went to hell
They claim he knows nothing-
So much less than you or me
Till he is done playing golf
And watches some news on TV...
La frontera es una pesadilla...
And run on the honor system. “Now, you didn’t vote in the Democrat primary, did you?”
That should be something that is easily verifiable with updated poll books.
The NSA should have all that info. My phone can know if I walk into a Dunkin Donuts, but the gov’t can’t track who has voted and who hasn’t?
That’s information I can download from my county board of elections website. Who voted. Who didn’t. Who voted in a partisan primary. Which party. etc.
The charming couple-whichever one published that spreadsheet-need counseling, not an internet adventure-what an amazing lack of maturity and regard for their partner’s feelings...
That said, I would guess that the wife has found a new guy to lose that weight for...
That would explain all the working late and all the gym time....
We call that “getting down to divorce weight” lol
Yep-as a female, I can tell you that is the knock-off-bet she has a bunch of new clothes and make-up, too...
Oh, yes we do...
Let me add that a guy who wants to know what is going on would notice what his woman is wearing and recent clothing purchases-is she packing hunting togs to go on those business trips alone, sultry new perfume, or visual pheromone lingerie that he has never seen before...
