I don’t think Tommyboy visits us every 15 minutes like he used to, else that post would be novel-length by now.
That reminds me. Tommyboy: No adding a sentence again until at least 5 people have had their turn.
found it… come on… come on someone write…gotta write another sentence…ahhh meaning to ones existence…
masterful isabella…masterful…come on phillip…relax the rules….come on….
Go nuts, Tom!
oh….yeah…well….Phillip you wiley one….knowing that the chase is the exciting element..the quarry secondary…I now have little desire to write as you stunted the chase and in reality I have no desire for the quarry.
That 5 people rule is making me itch.
For a low-traffic blog, we’re getting some consistent responses to this post — and quality too. I’m not adding another sentence. There’s no way I could match the caliber of these contributions. Nice work.
come on phillip write..you are a great writer phillip…yes you are..ohhh there is a little smile…come on philly write a few wordie poos…come on.. cooochie cooo
phillip in the time it took me to write my sentance which just flowed out two others were posted. It still works if ya just rearrange em….come on it was just minutes ….come on…
oh yea and sorry about the one word thingy but I could not resist….
I got to bed, wake up and find 9 responses to the last post? How’d that happen? I’ll edit / rearrange them now if I have to.
Yup, it looks messed up big time. Expect significant deletions.
This kind of thing works when traffic remains low. The more people who get in on it, the more likely it is to go off the rails.
Holy Zeus! I was mesmerized by the edit count-down. Has that always been there? I’m so flumoxed.
I’ll be away for the next two days. Most of the words in the somewhat random list have been used already. Once those are done, maybe go for a word from the tag list in the sidebar. At any rate, Jody will be running the show.
> Jody will be running the show.
WHAT?! Let the chaos begin.
Well POOP. I flunked that one.
Jody is still in charge. I’m out of town until Wednesday.
I could never a rock star. I don’t think I could handle living in a different hotel every night, not on a regular basis anyway.
This story isn’t dead, and I’m not shutting it down. I’ll repost it with the latest additions soon. I’m happy to let it go on indefinitely.
The following comments (if any) refer to the Page 56, Sentence 5 post.
This comment was from Tommyboy. I moved it here because it’s not in English and it’s full of ellipsis sentences that are definitely not taken from any book. — You’re screwing it all up Tom!
all I have is these magazines…with glossy pictures….
Concois les couverturres de livres et remplis la bibliotheque.
its from my kid’s book left here by the computer… I wish they were learning chinese or arabic…
My “sentence 5” is from “Isaac’s Storm” by Erik Larson.
By the way, I stole this idea from Sol’s Facebook account, pretty much word for word. Thanks, Sol!
Mine’s from the Sun Certified Enterprise Architect for Java EE Study Guide at work.
But you knew that.
This comment was from Tommyboy (again!), moved here (again!) because he thinks the rules don’t apply to him. Politicians think they can get away with anything. Not on my watch!
phillip it was from some french thing…isbn 978-2-89642-069-8 looks like a book, smells like a book, feels like a book but of course I know no french so I cannot say what it is about..has lots of pictures….rules…that is all my life is as a politition..jesus..the federal mess we are in, which I find facinating is all about rules…proceedure etc…I come here for the freedom…the air…the exhuberance of just being…alas….my attempts to escape my straitjacketed existance thwarted by your puritanical adherence to the rules…:-)
