Cheers & Jeers, Jargon & Jackets

Today's Top News Story

Cheers of joy and grumblings of loathing came up all over today as a story broke that former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin signed on to be a contributor on the Fox News Channel.  Fox News reported that Tuesday at 8p ET is her first official day on the job.

Today's Word of The Day

I saw a new word today that I didn't know.  It was used on a comment about the above story.  The comment said that Palin made liberals apoplectic.

Main Entry: ap·o·plec·tic
Pronunciation: \ˌa-pə-ˈplek-tik\
Function: adjective
Etymology: French or Late Latin; French apoplectique, from Late Latin apoplecticus, from Greek apoplēktikos, from apoplēssein
Date: 1611

1 : of, relating to, or causing stroke
2 : affected with, inclined to, or showing symptoms of stroke
3 : of a kind to cause or apparently cause stroke ; also : greatly excited or angered

Since I started this blog just less than a week ago I've added two new words to my vocabulary. The cool thing is that I can use them both in one single sentence. The assclowns in D.C. are making people all over the country feel apoplectic. I know you'll want to use that witty piece of work as your own during your next political conversation around the water cooler so, please feel free.

Today's Quote of The Day

"Success is the sum of small efforts, repeated day in and day out." Robert Collier
Now that is something that you can take into the New Year to stay on track... One day at a time.

Today's Fan Page

Did you have a mom that made you wear an ugly coat so you wouldn't freeze and you are still carrying harsh feelings about it? The cure could just be a click away on the I don't care how cold it is outside, I refuse to wear a big ugly coat fan page. Now you can join over 200,000, yes 200k, who would rather freeze their arse off than wear some tasteless garb.

Speaking of tasteless, have I mentioned this blog has it's very own fan page? Yes, yes, we do!

What did you learn on Facebook today?
