"Name, Jewelry, Adjective" - Take Two

Exercise #36 - "Name, Jewelry, Adjective"

List 15 names (e.g., Lisa, Jane, Humbert, etc.)
For each name, assign one piece of jewelry (e.g., pearls, wedding ring, etc)
Then for each assign an adjective (e.g., enthusiastic)
You will then have 15 sets, e.g.,
Jane, wedding ring, enthusiastic
John, class ring, doubtful
After you do 15 sets, circle the one you find least interesting. Then notate the one you find most amusing.
  1. Georgia, tennis bracelet, romantic
  2. William, gold MD ring, accomplished
  3. Maria, sterling silver promise ring, confident
  4. Philbert, gold chain, pimpin'
  5. Bruce, blinged out pinky ring, mob-ish
  6. Ethel, freshwater pearl necklace, overwhelmed
  7. Irene, nose ring, rebellious
  8. Natalie, silver chain, grateful
  9. Mina, gold bindi, proud
  10. Amos, Bvlgari watch, shocked
  11. Andrew, eyebrow ring, unique
  12. Michael, family heirloom pocket watch, nostalgic
  13. Rachael, wedding ring, doubtful
  14. Erin, wedding ring, ecstatic
  15. Marlene, anklet, suspicious
Oh, my favorite is definitely Philbert's new sense of pimpage with his gold, Mr. T chain. I laughed out loud when I finished up with that one. I mean, just picture Philbert, whoever your mind conjures up when the name is presented to you. Now add a big ass gold chain hanging around his neck. Hilarious.

I'm also a fan of mob-ish Bruce with his blinged-out pinky ring. I'm sure he started working on his patronly jowls and Italian accent the second he put it on.

In other news, school started today. Blahhhhhhh... I've never been one for school. Don't get me wrong; I love learning. There's nothing I like more than to sit in a comfy chair and read a history book, but I absolutely hate being tested on anything that I am supposed to have learned. I'm not what you would call a good test-taker, but ask me to write an essay or have a conversation about the things I've learned then I'll stun you with what I've absorbed. It's always been an annoying trait, but I've learned to live with it.

Either way, school has started, and there's nothing I can do about it. Oh, well.


P.S. I had to re-do this one. It seems my blog template was being douche-y, so I have fixed the css formatting and reposted.

P.S. I had never heard that Helen Keller joke :-)

Lisa, thanks for the kind words! I'm glad that you like the idea. :) I'm also happy that I could further the greatness that is the Helen Keller joke.
