Youse gonna find virtual food an' drink, fashion, lots of silly games, mebbe even romance. Make the rounds--make new blogger pals!
Heah at the Front Porch part of the fun an' games is games to stretch your word wizardry an' games of blogger intrigue. Prizes go to the funniest or the most accurate entries (see prize awards below) Entries wif' puns git extry points.
Some SAMPLE teasers:
FILL IN THE BLANKS
"I always wear________________ on New Year's Eve."
"The song I associate with Midnight on New Year's Eve is_____________"
A limerick is a five line poem with the rhyming scheme of AABBA
Limericks are funny or ironic. They can feature hyperbole, onomatopoeia, and puns. The final line should be the surprise thought or punchline. Even Shakespeare had fun with limericks.
There was an Old Man with a beard,
Who said, 'It is just as I feared!
Two Owls and a Hen,
Four Larks and a Wren,
Have all built their nests in my beard!
The rhythm is 7-10 syllables in the A lines (1,2,5th lines) an' 5-7 syllables in the B lines (3, 4th lines)
(yes, ya' can write yore limerick(s) now while ya's still sober--then submit when the party is officially ready to open the doors!)
