"More-Organic-Than-Thou & Etc"

Exercise #91 : "More-Organic-Than-Thou & etc"
Triple, quadruple and quintuple-decker adjectives can be fun! For example:
  • easy-to-hose-down tile
  • ladies-who-lunch hairdos
  • A run-to-catch-the-school-bus outfit
  • A disguise-the dog-hair-oatmeal-brown sofa
  • more-organic-than-thou shampoo
Make up some to go with the following nouns:
  • Car
  • Bike
  • university
  • petunias
  • pizza
  • book
  • scarf
  • shoes
  • yoghurt
  • watch
  • backpack
  • bathrobe
  • purse
  • kitchen gizmo
  • dog
  • sofa
  • cell phone
  • notebook
  • guinea pig
  • summer vacation
  • hotdog

Too much to do today. Ugh... Feel free to take part in this exercise. Will meet back up with you later on tomorrow. :)

NaNo fell behind today. Lots to do! Ahhhhhhh!!!

Have you lost your mind?! Any word using an em-dash only counts as one word for NaNo! Boost your word count and get rid of those stacked adjectives :)

I'll try it in December.

Oh, yeah. Sorry. I meant to tell you good luck on my earlier post. Got all excited about the stacked adjectives.

I'm sure you can get caught up on your word count easily.

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…
