Improve Your Vocabulary Over the Summer

Curt-lineby Curt Kovener

Nearing the end of May, school is almost out for most students but for the true professionals, we know that education is a year-long life-long experience. So to start your summer school, study up on these new vocabulary words so that you will not be forced into remediation this fall.
For extra credit, see if you can attach names of people you know that exemplify these vocabulary words.
•Blamestorming: Sitting around in a group, discussing why a deadline was missed or a project failed, and who was responsible.
•Seagull Manager: A manager, who flies in, makes a lot of noise, craps on everything, and then leaves.
•Assmosis: The process by which some people seem to absorb success and advancement by kissing up to the boss rather than working hard.
•Salmon Day: The workday experience of spending an entire day swimming upstream only to die in the end.
•Cube Farm: An office filled with cubicles.
•Prairie Dogging: When someone yells or drops something loudly in a cube farm, and people’s heads pop up over the walls to see what’s going on.
•Mouse Potato: The on-line, wired generation’s answer to the couch potato.
•SITCOMs: Single Income, Two Children, And Oppressive Mortgage. What adults turn into when they have children and one of them stops working to stay home with the kids.
•TINKs: Two Incomes, No Kids. These selfish adults just hate it when they find out that their new neighbors moving in have 4 kids under 10 years old. (See SITCOMs above.)
•Stress Puppy: A person who seems to thrive on being stressed out and whiney.
•Swipeout: An ATM or credit card that has been rendered useless because the magnetic strip is worn away from extensive use.
•Xerox Subsidy: Euphemism for swiping free photocopies from one’s workplace.
•Irritainment: Entertainment and news spectacles that are annoying but you find yourself unable to stop watching them. News coverage of the White House is a prime example.
•Percussive Maintenance: The fine art of whacking an electronic device to get it to work again.
•Adminisphere: The rarefied corporate organizational layers beginning just above the rank and file. Decisions that fall from the adminisphere are often profoundly inappropriate or irrelevant to the problems they were designed to solve or they solve problems that do not exist.
•404: Someone who’s clueless. From the World Wide Web error message “404 Not Found”; meaning that the requested document could not be located.
•Generica: Features of the American landscape that are exactly the same no matter where one travels, such as fast food joints, strip malls, subdivisions.
•Oh-No Second: That minuscule fraction of time in which you realize that you’ve just made a BIG mistake.
•WOOFYS: Well Off Older Folks.
•Crop Dusting: Surreptitiously breaking wind while passing through a cube farm, then enjoying the sounds of dismay and disgust.

Crothersville Woman Charged After Man Found Dead

A 26-year-old Crothersville woman was charged with obstruction of justice following a death investigation north of Crothersville, according to Indiana State Police Sgt. Stephen Wheeles.

Last Thursday, May 11, the Indiana State Police responded to a report of deceased person at a residence on County Road 500 South, just north of Crothersville.
The investigation, being conducted by Indiana State Police Detectives, began around 10 a.m., when troopers were called to 10806 East County Road 500 South after a family member found Clarence Howard, 51, deceased inside the home. During the course of the investigation, detectives learned that Mattie Joann Kendall, 26, of Crothersville, altered the scene and left residence before detectives could speak with her.
Kendall was later found to be walking along I-65 near Crothersville.  After speaking with detectives, Kendall was arrested on a charge of Obstruction of Justice, a Level 6 Felony.  She was booked into the Jackson County Jail at 5:13 p.m. to await her initial court appearance in the Jackson County Circuit Court.
An autopsy was conducted on Clarence Howard, authorities reported. The autopsy and toxicology results are pending at this time for final determination of cause of death. Foul play is not suspected in his death at this time, Wheeles said.
