And life goes on...



effectuous ? I'll be damned...I have no Bob Hope, Lawrence Welk or Suess humor left to counter that word. But Timmy...only those of us elderly enough to remember Timmy and Lassie know the meaning of the last, I'm full of shit....elderly shit...the kind that rest home nurses don't go near ..unless paid tidy sums..yes, those sums.

When I get that way I ask the nurse to up my pill dosage. Those little fellas help get me through the day.

"effectuous". A word so obscure, that even the internet has difficulty defining it. I salute you.

And I have no idea how it got in my head. But thank you, sir.

There's a suggestion that "effectuous" might be an out of date word, thought to be no longer in use.

Perhaps that should be extended to, "among humans"

Timmy: it just goes to show, they're not just for christmas. You can have a little stool empty by the fireside any time of the year. Especially with all that darn fire around.

You're making my mouth water.

The reason he's using an out of date word is because he just read "Middlemarch" and it brainwashed him.

Why is everyone writing "affectuous" as "effectuous" with an "e"?

Here is what our lord and savior, The Internet, has to say on the matter:

As adjectives the difference between effectuous and affectuous is that effectuous is (obsolete) effective while affectuous is (obsolete) full of passion or emotion; earnest.

Florence is certainly talking about a time full of passion and emotion.

Hard laughing here.

Is this an intentional reference to Timothy by The Buoys?

Sorry, no. But, I'm awfully glad my sick, dark humour made somebody laugh.

If you're not familiar with the song, it's about some guys trapped in a cave in and starving. Now they're not starving any more, but they can't figure out what happened to Timothy.

Ah...ha ha. I see. That would make sense, but Timmy isn't the one who's been eaten.
