Title: The Last Shall be First
Post by: Spell Chick on February 22, 2009, 08:56:08 AM
How about a new game?

We write a sentence. The next person writes a sentence beginning with the last word of the previous sentence.

Like this:

Here is a sentence.

Next person:

Sentence structure must follow certain rules.

Next person:

Rules are just society's way to curb our fun.

on and on and on.


First sentence:

Let's play a game.

Applause is like strong liquor to the aging actors or showmen.

Generation is a word that can be split into both 'gene' and 'ration'.

Ration books meant little to people with their own chickens or pigs, or a poacher in the family.

Artalis, it's not that I don't like what you have written above, because I do.

But the point of this game is to use the last word of the post above you and make it the first word of what you write.

Care to give it another try?

Complete the following sentence with a word from this sentence.
Title: Re: The Last Shall be First

Sentence should not be confused with sentience, as the words have entirely different meanings.

Meanings of words can be very confusing.

On writing this sentence, my mind wandered to graffiti.
Title: Re: The Last Shall be First

Graffiti can be seen as either Art or Vandalism, and sometimes just a pointless waste of paint.
Title: Re: The Last Shall be First
Post by: Alice, a Country Gal on February 25, 2009, 11:25:51 AM
Paint has many uses; to make the old look new again; hide faults, at least for a little while; or to enhance what nature bestowed.

 Named Spot, our dog was a great animal and family friend to have  around and great fun when we went to football matches and he'd chase the ball around while we all shouted, "hey, Spot ! the ball ", and by then he was long gone with the ball and all the players would be well pissed off.

Basis,  a set of vectors that, in a linear combination, can represent every vector in a given vector space or free module, and such that no element of the set can be represented as a linear combination of the others. In other words, a basis is a linearly independent spanning set.

It pains me to have to tell you, but I have never had romantic feelings towards a closet or indeed any other bit of furniture.  I may have wept when my old office chair died, but that was because it signalled the end of a longstanding working relationship, and the unplanned wallet vivisection which subsequently ensued.

Ensued, a word that rightfully belong farther along in a sentence containing some type of action or planned action; not normally a word with which to begin a sentence. But there are some people who delight in presenting us with a gauntlet.

Efficient and effective are not the same thing, although they are often used interchangeably by lazy and imprecise writers.  As an example, take garbage/rubbish collection.  Imagine if each household was assigned a Rolls Royce crewed by two men, one to drive and the other to place the bin in the back before driving it  to the tip.  At the tip the 'labourer' empties the bin before they return it to the original house.  Despite the collossal waste of time, effort, manpower, and money this would still be an effective way to deal with rubbish.  But it sure as hell wouldn't be efficient.

Craft, a word packed with so much meaning and emotion. It's a joy to watch a true craftsman plying his (or her) trade, be it as a glass blower, a carver or a brick layer.

The real craftsman can be identified not only by the end results, but by the care and joy as they preform their chosen task.

Thread the needle is the first thing you have to do in order to sew on a button. The you put the button in the proper place, stick the needle in one hole, pull it through, then from that side, stick it through the opposite hole and pull through. Do this about 6 to 8 times and you have sewn on a button.

Potatoes come in all shapes and sizes; plus a variety suited for different purposes. You can create simple or complex dishes to suit your taste. But when it comes to the odd looking yam (sweet potato), the only way I like it is baked with butter and seasoning added.

'Diet of Worms' sounds rather revolting, but in fact it has nothing to do with food.

=====

(Meeting of the Diet (assembly) of the Holy Roman Empire at Worms, Ger., in 1521, where Martin Luther defended the principles of the Reformation. Luther had already been excommunicated by Pope Leo X, but Emperor Charles V granted him safe conduct to a hearing at the Diet. On April 17, 1521, Luther refused to recant his views. Disorder broke out, the emperor adjourned the proceedings, and Luther was obliged to go into hiding. In May the Diet issued the Edict of Worms, declaring Luther an outlaw and a heretic and banning his writings.
