"Jamilla, Joyce, and Larry"

Exercise #54 : "Jamilla, Joyce, and Larry"

In no more than 10 words for each, sketch the characters named Jamilla, Joyce, and Larry. Once you've done that, answer these questions quickly, without thinking:
  • Where are they?
  • What do they want from one another?
Jamilla - redhead, earth mother, fiery, striking, kindhearted, deeply sensitive, enabler
Joyce - blonde, deceptively ditsy, genius, sorority girl, cat-lover, snobby
Larry - angry, technophile, WOW player, low social skills, average intelligence

They are in Larry's living room.

Larry wants to bonk both of them, but neither of them are interested.
Joyce wants to do experiments on Larry and is using her feminine wiles and her knowledge of Larry's horny nature to get him to take part in the experiments.
Jamilla simply wants to meditate, sitting cross-legged on her yoga mat.

That was less than 5 minutes. But I guess since I've gone over the time limit on a few of the previous exercises that I can allow a shorter post this one time.

In other news, thank you so much for your overwhelmingly welcoming responses to my #fridayflash post yesterday. It was so exciting to be a part of such a neat writing community and can't wait to participate next week.

Peace.
Stef.

P.S. Posts I still need to write:
  • the henna hair dye post - This one will probably be in a week or so. I haven't completed the process, so I haven't gotten my final result. It'll happen, though!
  • movie review - Tim Burton's "9"
  • rewrite of "Meet Chuck"
  • completion of "Popul Vuh" exercise

Ah, yellow. One of my least favorite colors. I mean, it's nice and all, but there are so many versions of this color that are simply eye-raping. Anyways, on with the list.

"Purple Things"

Exercise #28: "Purple Things"
What things are purple? Make a list.
EggplantsOne-Eyed, One-Horned, Flying, Purple People Eater (see below)Bruises (sometimes)a REALLY beautiful sunsetElizabeth Taylor's eyes (does violet count?)Barney (I love you, you love me...)GrapesLavendarOrchidsAmethystCabbage (sometimes)Lots of different birdsPlumsVioletsOnionsROYGBIVThat's all I can think of. You know, you don't really notice it, but purple appears quite frequently in nature. When I think nature, my mind immediately imagines greens, browns, and generally all kinds of neutral colors, but purple is everywhere. It's pretty awesome.

Without further ado, the One-Eyed, One-Horned, Flying, Purple People Eater by Sheb Wooley:



Great, huh? I don't remember when I was first introduced to this all-sorts-of-wonderful song, but I'm pretty sure it was care of my Mom. She definitely has provided quite a bit of the humor in my life, and I'm sure she's one of the big reasons…
