So I realize that today isn’t Wednesday but I wasn’t home Wednesday and didn’t have anything queued up so here is your word of the week…for last week, haha 🙂
I’m still reading the book Dark Money by Jane Mayer and came across another word that I had to look up in the dictionary – yes I still use one of those. So the word of the week is:
Apostasy – the abandonment or renunciation of a religious or political belief
A girlfriend of mine recently invited me over for a fabulous dinner to help celebrate my graduating from college. She had a delicious hors d’oeuvres or horse de overs (depending on what part of Wisconsin you’re from!) of cheese, crackers, grapes, apples and wine. What I really loved was the cheese. I am from Wisconsin after all 🙂 It was a brie and it was the most delicious, creamy cheese I have ever had.
I thought it would be good to use Brie as my word of the week this week.
Brie – is a soft cow’s-milk cheese named after Brie, the French region from which it originated (roughly corresponding to the modern département of Seine-et-Marne). It is pale in color with a slight grayish tinge under a rind of white mold. The rind is typically eaten, with its flavor depending largely upon the ingredients used and its manufacturing environment.
And while I don’t usually endorse any product here (and I am not getting paid for this), the picture below is the Brie cheese we had that night. OMG, it was yummy in my tummy! If you’ve never had Brie before I urge you to give this one a try – you won’t be disappointed. Oh and be sure you have some high quality crackers with it.
So I’m scrambling. With the holiday this past weekend, I thought today was Tuesday, so this will be a short little post because I have to go to my second job in about an hour. So, here ya go!
Today’s word is Bilge.
Bilge – the area on the outer surface of a ship’s hull where the bottom curves to meet the vertical sides; nonsense; rubbish; break a hole in the bilge of (a ship).
Based on the book I’m reading (see previous post) the definition that fits best is nonsense and rubbish.
