What are you doing, WITHOUT ADJECTIVES.
« on: August 04, 2010, 11:42:41 AM »
Thread has no adjectives. Describe what you are doing without using adjectives. Go!

I will start:

I am at work. I listen to Porcupine Tree. I want to go to lunch.
...and there he was, reigning supreme at number two.  The One... The Only... The Unabeefer.

You say that as though it were a challenge.  It is not a challenge.  You do not always need adjectives to describe things.

No, it's not a challenge for me, but people tend to use adjectives a lot. It is more of a game than anything.

I did not intend to say words that would offend you.  You speak correctly; avoiding adjectives is a challenge.  You can make sentences, but you speak in a manner like an alien from space or possibly just a country that is not America.  Sentences do not flow in a manner that you normally see.  Language is read stiffly, robotically, strangely.  You can usually cheat by using adverbs.

You do speak correctly, although you did not offend. :)  I also enjoy adverbs greatly!

Sorry, "your" describes "mom", making it an adjective.

I've been trying to get back into writing. Activities such as these help to get the juices flowing. Later, I'll be going to work where I'll be editing press release after press release.

Hey, this is actually pretty eas- DRAT!

Waiting for the glucose levels in the blood to go lower. This game racks the nerves and that surprises me.
