    Spell A Sentence Game

    This came to me tonight as I was being pummelled by Teri Tait in the Acronym Game. Since I started play, I've looked for small ways to make my response more interesting (to me) - using the previoius poster's chosen word as the first word of my acronym, trying to work in various poster's pseudonyms.. that sort of thing...

    Tonight, I thunk of a variant, if you are interested. The rules are the same, except that the resonse must be an intelligible sentence (in English, I'm afraid - no fun if I don't understand the insult)

    It should go something like this:

    Sarah Had Optomistically Underestimated Larry's Deviance


    ------

    and now, my impression of Jessie Owens! - Sheriff Bart

    Change of perspective, essentially the exact same game. I really didn't pummel him at all, he kept up pretty well.
    I just have a fair memory for words, word related trivia, and especially the fine art of annoyance through the written language.

    Hmmm...I will put it in chess terms, as an adept chess player you no doubt easily play both sides of the board in your head with ease, you likely can play as easily from a side location observing others play... It may become more difficult if you played while hopping on one foot...harder still if you juggled and hopped...then add fire to the juggle pins and concentration may lose focus.
    For myself it is like standing on my head and looking at the words as though they were reflecting off a mirror...bit dyslexic of me I guess and I don't think it would be a lasting irritation, I was just not used to the format...keyword being was.

    How is that different from the other acroynim game...
    How it works...
    A word is posted as an acronym and the letters have to be used to make a sentence.

    Then...
    Mark one of the words in your sentence by using bold type or UPPERCASE. That word will then be used for the following Acronym.

    Example...
    TAG = The Acronym Game
    New acronym: Game

    Here goes. Write your sentence, then put down your new word for the next guy to work out. Please try'n make somewhat coherent sentences, if you can.

    the standard (if you'll let me) acronym game doesn't require the response be in the form of a sentence - frequently objects and pronouns are left out. Frequently the response makes absolutely no sense when read as a sentence. This variant - I think - adds a small degree of difficulty to an already fun game

    oh, I'm not grumpy

    well, actually, I am - I'm ALWAYS grumpy. but here, I may be seing a distinction that A) others don't or B) isn't really there (I need an InfraRed camera to double check...)

    I never smile

    the 'GS' is actually a hold over from days gone by when I used my Apple IIGS for something other than a conversation piece. There are plenty of other tall guys out there with the nickname 'Lurch', so I added the GS as a differentiator. It's kinda stuck

    Well plenty of other tall guys sure, I'm very sure you stand out because you are nice and thoughtful. You seem that way to me, and I hate to be wrong.

    Well if you have children, you must have been somewhat nice to someone for at least a couple of minutes...

    well, there is that.. actually, what happens is they frequently come out sounding like headlines - I just want to refine it a bit. But, if the idea meets not with approval, I promise I won't commit suicide.

    homicide, maybe, but not suicide

    That's my attitude as well. My entries may be silly sometimes, but at least they're sentences, and you can understand them.
    Everything I need to know I learned through Googling.

    That's the ticket, cowboy... I'll rent the wood chipper and chainsaw... and meet you in Fargo to mulch the evidence.
