Morning

Morning, n. The end of night and dawn of dejection. The morning was discovered by a Chaldean astronomer, who. finding his observation of stars unaccountably interrupted, diligently sought the cause and found it. After several centuries of diputation, morning was generally accepted as a reasonable cause of the interruption and a constantly recurrent natural phenomenon.

Morning, n.

1. Being the worst period of time, dawn to noon, it is when you awaken (usually), grumble, and wish you could go back to sleep. What further worsens this period of time is that there are no Stargate episodes playing on the SciFi channel.

2. The period of time Rya’c wanted to meet his father, Teal’c, in the Chompka Groves.

Doug said...

Goa'uld, for someone who doesn't like mornings, you're on-line kinda early. Thanks for helping us all get caught up on Stargate.

weirsdo said...

Time for dewing and doing.

Noun to which the adjective "good" is frequently affixed, showing that hope springs eternal.


reoby: Medieval oboe?

karma said...

not to be confused with the morning after, which inadvertantly follows a night of drunken revelry, a sinkful of unwashed dishes and amazing sex

szovjko: snooze over jeez, knock me out

dddragon said...

yes, what ARE you doing online so early this morning?

besides, Bookworm/Tok'ra is MUCH grumpier than you are in the morning.

Semisweet1 said...

Morning: the time when all of last night's ambitious plans get postponed until tomorrow.

Doug said...

Weirsdo, I really like "dewing and doing"

Karma, not to be confused at all.

Dddragon, please feel free to scold your children on this site anytime.

S, it's like that on the internet.

zozbvaub, err. "SOS" as received on a FEMA computer.

Tan Lucy Pez said...

Morning, n.,
origin Middle Eng., from morn, probably originally mourn for the loss of sleep.

Cause of much deviant behavior, e.g. leaving one's bed before one's sleep is completed.

A deformity of the night.

Loved by some. Hated by many.

pia said...

Morning: if sunny a time when everything seems fresh and doable

I have no idea. I left my bed before my sleep was completed

Sar said...

Morning: The end or beginning of one's day, depending on perspective and luck.

Tom & Icy said...

coitus interruptus

Doug said...

Tan Lucy, A deformity of the night is a great definition.

That's funny, Pia.

And which shoes you have on, eh, Sar?

Wow, Icy. Maybe where you come from.

Minka said...

morning, n. good on two occasions:

1) the earlier part of it, between midnight and sunrise
2) when it happens to people on the other side of the earth

weirsdo said...

Doug: LOL on the FEMA SOS. I see you are having at them too.

piqndush: Drunk American ordering popular Chinese specialty.

AP3 said...

My first thought was:

morning, a daily, pre-noon mourning ritual when I say, "I'm not dead yet?!?"

I guess I've had a bad weekend.

Sreekesh Menon said...

why on a monday?

Doug said...

Monika, I think you've been channeling Bierce here lately. Not a fan of mornings, huh?

Weirsdo, good eye with that one.

Dang, AP3, I guess so. You sound like me in full autistic regression. That normally happens if I have to spend more than about 6 hours being verbal in a 48-hour period.

Good point, Sreekesh. Monday and morning were a thoughtless combination.

Jamie Dawn said...

Weirsdo's "dewing & doing" is just pure genius. Pansi would have said something like, "Win i"m reel sad."

Morning: The time when my daughter and I are ready to eat something and my hubby and son wouldn't dream of it.

a4g said...

Morning, n. A painter who uses me as his canvas to stroke by stroke complete a masterpiece of wrinkles and gray.

GABRIEL C. ZOLMAN said...

I'll give you two, since I've been absent lately...


Morning, n. (1) The harsh light cast upon evening's conquest (2) Something often known to break, and often among the broken.

Rio said...

taking full advantage of the day, something i do not practice, preach or aspire to.

"good morning starshine, the earth says hello you twinkle above us we twinkle below"

Alice: In Wonderland or Not said...

Morning, n.
That which is always present somewhere; much to the disappointment of college students everywhere.

Doug said...

Jamie Dawn, that was a very good impression.

a4g, pure poetry. I think you want the gifted class, 2nd door on the right.

Gabriel, you can stay here.

Rio, why do we always sing of the things we don't preach, practice or aspire to.

Alice, it's true. You suppose that's why semester at sea is so popular?

Fred said...

Hey, doesn't Goa'uld have classes in four hours? No wonder my first period students are so quiet!

dddragon said...

Fred: You bring up an interesting point - I think that the time stamps are not our own, but that of the blog owner.

At least, I HOPE she wasn't really up that early! I thought she posted at 6:35 am EST. I'll have to check out the time after I post this ... my PC time is reading 11:43 pm right now (why aren't I in bed?!), so let's see what the time stamp sez ...

dddragon said...

Aha!

Doug said...

Fred, Dddragon cracked it.

You know your mornings there are my evening here. Do you have Google Talk on your system yet ;-)
