Word For The Day, Friday, August 8, 2003
The Verbivores | 8/8/03 | Teacher

Posted on 08/08/2003 5:11:44 AM PDT by RikaStrom

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”. Rules: Everyone must leave a post using the “word of the day”; in a sentence. The sentence must, in some way, relate to the news of the day. Practice makes perfect.....post on....


pandemian \pan*dem*ee*an\, adjective
pandemianly; adverb
pandemiousness; noun

1. Vulgar
2. Sensual

The characteristics of Aphrodite have bewildered philosophers who, like Plato, made a distinction between the two aspects of the goddess, one Uranian "celestial," as the goddess of pure love, and Pandemian, or "popular," as the goddess presiding over ordinary love affairs.

Etymology: I couldn’t find the etymology, double grades to the student who brings it to class!

Good Morning Class. Welcome to School! Yippy!! It's FRIDAY!

Class is now in session. The rules are simple; you get a grade if you use the WFTD in a sentence, haiku, limerick, or quatrain. You get a "+" if you make a link, or make the teacher laugh, or you offer the appropriate bribes. I hold the grade book, and the whip and chair.

Scores of country music hopefuls auditioned in New York for what is being billed as a television show to pick an openly gay country music star from about 50 contestants.

Ok, this should just blow your "You gotta be kidding me!" meter right off the scale. Although I will admit to hearing nothing about Ty Herndon. I'm afraid to ask. LOL

The gay agenda
Pandemian(1), it sure is!
Not country music!

With the minor exception of k.d. lang. I actually liked most of her stuff.

Gay Musicians Want to Break Country Music Barrier

Right now all is quiet on the home front....pup is sleeping under a chair, big girl is sleeping in my room and child is in school!!!

It's Friday, hubby is home - so that means I don't get to play online much today - he's going to actually make me do chores :(

That's a very good question Flurry.

I ran across in on an obscure little site; did some searching and found the snippit with the quote above, in a document talking about Aphrodite.

Whoever finds out where it came from gets double points. :-)

You'd think so wouldn't you? Maybe what we're thinking of is a chore for some.

The perennial presence of pandemian prevaricators, pifflers, and purveyors of philth in the public panorama persistently provokes pain and puking amongst the populace...

Yup! I didn't see much of it myself, as I'd started the day at 4am and had only slept 3 hours before that.

Morning!

The California Governor's recall
Has become a pandemian brawl.
With some actors, and two sluts
Competing with a peddler of smut.

well you said Annisette won't babysit the pup, so?

we took xs2pup to the groomer last night and he smells very nice and puppylike now. i could NOT get him to smell anything other than excessively doggish even after bathing him. The final straw was when xshub said i smelled like the pup!!
