Show off.

The word was cum dumpster. I had heard one of my students use the phrase in the class where the youth worker lets the students come up with as many insults as they can think of. That one stuck out.

I don't know why I deleted the post at the time. I don't seem to care as much these days.

alternately

We played alternately, taking turns after each other.

alternatively

We can (do this thing) and spend 50 bucks. Alternatively, we can (do something else) and it'd cost 5 bucks.

Nov 15th 2011

That one stuck out.

I think it's kinda rhymy. That's why. Gotta be.

Nov 15th 2011

I think it was more that I was actually shocked by something that the kids said. I thought I'd heard them all, having been around those kinds of kids for five years. But I suppose that was rather naive of me.

Yeah, why were you being such a cum dumpster about it? By the way, Dumpster is a proper noun and should be capitalized. Just Dumpster, though.

Nov 15th 2011

Yeah, it's like Band-Aid or Kleenex.

Nov 15th 2011

Or Trojan.

That gives me confidence, STT.

Nov 17th 2011

I need a word. I'm doing report comments, and I need a word that means "good, not great". I thought of "adequate" but that has somewhat negative connotations, does it not?

Here's the comment that I'm cutting and pasting.

Though various assessments including the design project, Gaylord demonstrated ____ understanding of the concepts taught.

This comment is meant for the student who is doing somewhere between "thorough understanding" and "limited understanding".

Help an educator out, will ya?

Nov 17th 2011

sufficient

Nov 17th 2011

lackluster, embarassing lack of, sub-human being levels of, Gaylord-type

Just give it to him straight.

Nov 17th 2011

I suppose I could have just looked for synonyms in google, huh? Oh well, I prefer the NAoogle Search Bar.

Satisfactory? Acceptable?

Also, "Gaylord"?

Nov 17th 2011

My wife uses competent or competence on her quarterlies a lot. Also, proficient and proficiency.

Nov 17th 2011

Actually, Gaylord seems to work best.

Nov 17th 2011

Those are good words, Bri. Remind me to use them next time. I'm waiting to see if I'm going to catch crap from my higher ups for cutting and pasting comments. I haven't done report cards for a long time, so I'm kind of out of the loop as to what's expected.

Nov 17th 2011

Just focus on the name Gaylord. That is what everyone else will be doing.

Nov 17th 2011

I would say "less than groin-grabbingly good."

Nov 17th 2011

Satisfactory?

Dec 14th 2011

Fun yet obvious when you think about it trivia! The plural of "sheaf" is . . . "sheaves." Thanks, Dr. Oxford. Or whoever.

Dec 14th 2011

Bringing in the sheaves, bringing in the sheaves, we will come rejoicing bringing in the sheaves.

That's how I knew what a sheaf was. Wait. I still don't know what a sheaf is.

Dec 14th 2011

Well, it's one sheave. Duh.

Dec 14th 2011 edited

Sheave: an almost dangerous or deadly situation. As in "The car just missed the old lady who was crossing the street. Talk about a close sheave."

Dec 14th 2011

I thought it was a jailhouse weapon?

"Daoust retrieved the homemade sheave from under the toilet and stabbed his cellmate after being raped the fourth time."

Dec 14th 2011

Sheave is slang for shaved beave. Your welcome.

Dec 14th 2011

Sheave=Brazillian?

Dec 14th 2011

Sheaf = A cross between a shart and a queef.

Dec 14th 2011

That would be an unpleasant combination.
