A little this – a little that!

Monday the 13th

on February 13, 2012

Hello everyone! I hope you’ve all had a pleasant weekend. Mine was swell, as most weekends tend to be. While normally I’d post up a picture for the week today, I’ve decided to hold off until tomorrow, so you can see the mini project I’ve been working on. Okay, less  project, more  craft.  And with no picture to hide behind, and a smidgen of writer’s block, I have found myself with a classic, Monday the 13th situation. Bad luck comes on Friday the 13th, writer’s block comes Monday the 13th. 😉

So today won’t be poetry, and there’s no photo to be shared. Rather, we’re playing yet another game! Have you ever played those games where you’re given a word and then need to make up some crazy definition for it? My sisters and I used to play our version all the time and gave it the appropriate name,  Dictionary. Care to play along? Remember, you’re trying to come up with a crazy definition! Submit as many answers as you’d like in the comments section, and if you enjoy this, I may bring it up again!

Here are this week’s words:




And just to keep things interesting for anyone who participates, the winner of this little game can choose one word for the next round, along with their definitions posted, and a link (in that post) to their blog. The people in second and third place can also choose the words that will be used for the next round. On Sunday, I will send the people in first, second, and third place a congratulatory comment informing them of their win! Round #1 ends on the 19th at midnight. Make sure not to miss the deadline!

Have fun everyone!
