It was on a cold winter's day that the young Masters Roderick Brightman and George Dirtworm had walked through the gates of St Hilda's for the first time, and it was slightly later, but no warmer, on that same cold winter's day that a nervous Brightman had momentarily loosened his grip on the ink, and then under some heavy questioning from Miss Grinder, had uttered the awful words that would ring forever in their ears: "It was Dirtworm Miss!".

He eyed his own manuscript critically, suddenly realizing deep in the reptilian part of his brain he had lifted the storyline straight from the movie "Move Over Darling" and weirdly transposed it into what he'd thought were the dark interactions of Russian gentry in an indeterminate pre-Stalinist era, but then it started raining and the rice paper he'd foolishly written it on began dissolving like so much matzo cracker in a bowl of soup, thus sealing little Emily's fate.

I've read the rules, I've read the thread,
But I don't get what Brynn has said;
What style should other posters do?
Or do we always start anew?

"I'm so exhausted by this life!" he said, and when he said it, he said it so much better than she had that everyone started remarking on how exhausted they were, until finally the popovers were done, and with butter dripping down their chins, the ancient electric chair was switched on and they watched grimly and exhausted while he twitched spasmodically.

I love it! We may be on to something.

^made me nostalgic.

I'm waiting on judging for the Dictionary game. Entertain me by leaving a sentence about Jeff Goldblum here until it gets going again.

A human enigma, I used to think Jeff Goldblum was uncool years ago, but over the last 10 years I have rejected that opinion and he gets my top rating plus I'm glad he finally found a wife.

I don't know if I can out BLF wikipedia on this one:

Quote:
In 1974, Goldblum appeared in Death Wish as Freak # 1. Later in his career, as "Lacey Party Guest" in Annie Hall (1977), Goldblum is seen saying into the telephone at a Hollywood party, "I forgot my mantra."

Without a genre life meandered from one episode to the next in and out of the small hovel and to and from work when, as life has it's way, the downhill momentum of good physical health in spite of, and sometime because of, all the advantages and blessings the old woman found herself alone thinking, it's not how you look, it's how you feel, and just kept going.

In late June 2009, Goldblum was found dead on the internet.

As the sun set on the Left Bank, an indifferently-crafted croissant avec fromage sat silently in a dusty abandoned bakery, forgotten and undevoured, sitting patiently awash in its own fate - so unlike the rhubarbed fever of Jeff Goldblum's recent manic self-promotion of his flaky, croissant-like talents upon landing a role on "Law and Order:Special Something or Other Unit."

The winners of the official 2010 Bulwer-Lytton prize for bad fiction are out.

There are some real gems this year. I can't pick a favorite, but this is one of the ones I like:

"The dark, drafty old house was lopsided and decrepit, leaning in on itself, the way an aging possum carrying a very heavy, overcooked drumstick in his mouth might list to one side if he were also favoring a torn Achilles tendon, assuming possums have them."
