Help Me Write a Story

I had an idea a couple days ago, and I thought I’d let you help me write a story! Here’s how it’s going to happen. I give you a list of word types, and you respond in the comments with all of those words. I’m not giving you much time to do this, as I’ll be writing these stories in a couple days. However, I’m going to try to do it in a way so that I can’t see what’s been written. It’ll be a mystery to me until I read it.

That’s right, I’m doing a mad lib story! I’ve already written the short story, but now it’s time for you to give me the words. So, in the comments section, please enter the words. Keep it PG? Actually, write whatever you want. Let’s see how silly or crazy this can get. Here are the categories:

  1. name (famous person)
  2. noun
  3. feeling
  4. noun
  5. adjective
  6. verb
  7. adjective
  8. adjective
  9. adjective
  10. adjective
  11. plural noun
  12. verb past tense
  13. verb past tense
  14. noun

I will be doing this all on video, by the way. You’ll see my reaction to the stories as I read them. I’m going to see if I can get someone to just copy and paste them into the story so I have no idea what they are until I read them.

So, let the insanity begin!

Mad Libs

There’s something I’ve always enjoyed doing, and that’s mad libs. Here are a few:

The blue Dragon is the sleepiest Dragon of all. It has crusty kidneys, and a nose shaped like a computer. It loves to eat pelicans, although it will feast on nearly anything. It is sloppy and fresh. You must be endless around it, or you may end up as it`s meal!

That was from here.

Here’s another one, taken from here.

Darth Jay Dee looked at his master while his tall breathing filled the room. He was told to go to swim everything on the planet of wiigii. He got in his sofa and jumped to hyperspace. Soon before he reached the planet, he dropped out of hyperspace and was attacked by Rebel Ford Pintos. He sliced them off and continued to the planet`s surface. He landed and confronted more opposition, slicing it down with his paperclip. He used the Facebook to choke another Rebel, then friended him aside. He finished off all life on the planet with a/an seared laugh.

You see, not all of these are great, but there are some good ones to be found. So, here’s the Flintstones theme.

Flintlasers, meet the Flintlasers,
They`re a modern sleepy family.
From the town of Des Moines,
They`re a phone booth right out of history.

Let`s slip, with the family down the saxophone,
Through the courtesy of Jay Dee`s 42 feet.
When you`re with the Flintlasers,
Have a smoink nghyol doo coffin — A nghyol doo coffin,
You`ll have a twisted old coffin!

You can find many on that website. Post your best ones in the comments. Let’s have a little fun.

Let’s Talk About Sports

Reading and writing seem like such inactive activities. Just sitting and reading or writing. But do any of you like to do sports?

These days, I enjoy hiking and walking long distance. I’ve walked 35 km in one day once, and many times between 10 and 15 km. That’s actually pretty normal for me now.

In the past, I’ve done a variety of sports. From 8 to 12 years old, I played hockey. My first year was as defence, while the other three years were at right wing. Around the end of elementary school, I started playing golf and skiing, as well. In grade nine, I joined the ski club at junior high school. I played a bit of volleyball, as well. But going into high school, I continued golfing, then mostly went on a break from pretty much any sport in university and after.

As for watching, I still enjoy watching hockey. I’m excited about Edmonton’s new arena downtown, and I’m looking forward to seeing the Edmonton Oilers play there starting next year. I also like watching the Olympics when I can. But while living in Japan, I developed a liking for sumo. I haven’t watched recently, but I followed many of the rikishi.

So how about you? Do you do or watch any sports?
