Exercise #201 - D Verbs

Dash, dart, deck, delight, duck--- How many verbs that begin with the letter "d" can you think of? Spend the whole five minutes on this one list if you can. If you have to, go on to the letter "e."

1,2,3, GO!!

That's right, Cout von Count.
D is for DANCE.
I'm kind of annoyed that they took 5 perfectly good verbs from my dwindling list just for the purposes of providing examples. Rude...

Dwindle Die Dimple
Denounce Drown Dump
Disagree Diddle Drink
Delegate
Dampen Delouse
Drum Darken Demean
Dissolve Declaim Dunk
Declare Deliver Dig
Defend Damage Dry
Dye Dab Dwell
Disclaim Dabble Deepen
Dangle Damn Dally
Depark Debauch Debate
Deem Debug Debut
Daunt Debrief Dawn
Decide Drive Dive
Dish Drill Drift
Deaden Denote Debunk
Dine Dent Divvy
Dole Double Do
Dime Drag Dip

"Yellow List"

Exercise #83 : "Yellow List"
What things are yellow? Make a list. At the end of the five minutes, note the three you find most curious.
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…
