Word For The Day, Tuesday August 19, 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".
wunderkind [voo n-der-kind, wuhn-; German voo n-duh r-kint]
1. a wonder child or child prodigy.
2. a person who succeeds, especially in business, at a comparatively early age.
[1890-95; < German, equivalent to Wunder wonder + Kind child]
salvaje [sahl-BAH-heh ]
Él ha estado actuando como un animal salvaje.
Hes been acting like a wild animal.
Neither Cleveland’s wunderkind nor Steny Hoyer looked too impressive at QB last night. Third stringer hit a Hail Mary on the last play to make it interesting though.
Don Pardo, RIP. He’s the one a generation pretends to be whenever they get on a microphone:
And a tune for the last week of summer:
back at my work station, tanned, rested and ready ; )
Are you sure about the “rested”? I always like to give myself a day or two to relax at home after traveling.
(see what happens when SAJ hasn't had his coffee yet?)
Obama, left-wing wunderkind
Wonder if he blundered, sinned
The country’s a mess
Scandals hidden under, spinned
You had me at tanned and rested.
I am going to be taking off a bit for the wedding, and we are going to London at the end of October, so I don’t really want to pee away my leave just resting. I rested plenty at the pool for the past week, so it seems kind of gratuitous to rest now. The only strenuous activity was the plane trip and I slept a solid 8 hours last night, so I feel fine.
love you truthy : )
my tanning hours were 7:30 am to 11 am or so. the sun is so strong and I was so worried about burning and peeling this close to the wedding that with 70 spf I look tan, and avoided all of those issues.
Many deluded folks thought of Obama as a wunderkind, and many since have been disabused of that quaint notion.
They just made the mistake of articulating what has been Fed policy since its inception. Accelerated now, of course. We’re at about 2 cents right now.
You know, I just saw a headline “Guess who’s behind the Perry indictment.” I didn’t click on it, but I said in my head “George Soros.”
Good thing to know my instincts are firing on all cylinders.
well wasn’t that a MISCUE on his part, since all he did was end up promoting Rick Perry in that RIDICULOUS incident. I saw on twitter there is an account named DRUNK DEMOcRAT and it has that woman’s mug shot as the avatar. hilarious.
Actually Colt McCoy (#3 Redskins) threw one of the best passes of the evening. Redskins D looked pretty good though
Hawaii this month, a big wedding next, then London in Oct - you have a busy few months!
Could you think of a more “Texas” name?
