First, let’s dispense with some particulars. I bought these gloves at Mardi Gras. I know that this is no excuse, but that’s my story and I’m sticking to it. Anne is the hand model. I am in her debt for playing along on this photo shoot. The postcard is from Heifer, one of our charities. And yes, this is the grodiest, still functioning keyboard, known to man. Do you really think that you can write a scary post with a clean computer? Queue the evil laughter now …
Here are a few scary thoughts, in no particular order:
On the first day of his administration, President Rick Santorum announced that he would …
Vice President Newt Gingrich called for the unilateral bombing of North Korea, Iran and Cuba. When President Santorum informed Gingrich that he wasn’t in charge, the Vice President then threw a really big hissy fit, filed for his third divorce, fourth marriage and then announced another book tour, “Newt Gingrich – President of Vice”.
Ron Paul escaped from the asylum for the politically insane and announced his 2016 presidential campaign.
Mitt Romney continued his campaign for the Republican presidential nomination, this time in the state of denial.
Tea Party elected officials, called for new laws to aid the prosecution of witchcraft. In response, Nancy Pelosi turned all these Tea Party officials into newts. All of their spouses then divorced them and got the better of them.
Now here is a scary thought for the other half of America:
Announcing that he had received his opponent’s concession phone call, President Obama was met with thunderous cheers from the gathered supporters, who began to chant, “Four more years! Four more years!”
A scary thought that strikes closer to home, involves the word, osculable. I used it a couple of posts ago and in case you didn’t know, it means kissable. I used it in the context that Anne is oscuable, which she is, at least by me. This morning, I asked Anne if she knew what the word meant, she did. Oscuable is the adverb form of the verb, osculate, which most commonly means to kiss.
Anne also knew the less popular mathematical definition of this verb. Here is the Google definition: (of a curve or surface) Touch (another curve or surface) so as to have a common tangent at the point of contact. She then proceeded to demonstrate her point, using different shaped kitchen strainers. I was left with the thought, “Honey, one too many Algebra classes this week”, but I then did get a kiss on my way out the door.
Word of the Week at Work = Fungible
Wasn’t that Sarah Palin’s word of her week too? Like in, “oil is a fungible commodity”.
