1. I woke up late. Doors of kitchen were locked by then so i am fasting. Two more hours. My stomach is hungry.
2. My mental hunger was satiated by vocabulary.com jams. I invite you to play with me whenever you can. My ID is 12. I would like it if you compete with me.
3. Claire G.-who is the best player I have come across in the last two months(with PC being absent,) appeared briefly. I won a game by just 10 points. She scored 660 and I scored 670. This is the best of my achievements in the last two months on vocabulary.com. She might have scored less than me on some jams but today I made it a point to observe when she appeared.
4. I played 12 games in total. Here’s a summary of ranks I received:
First rank: 6 times(40 players on an average)
Second rank: twice
Third rank: once
Fourth rank: once
Seventh rank: once
5. So, as you can see: there are no facts . Only interpretations. I am undoubtedly not the Deuteronomy prophet lord king Starjade. I am a fellow blogger and jammer on vocabulary.com. If any of you are highly placed and in touch with Ben Zimmer or the technical team of that site: please inform that the server crashes anytime more than 100 players begin to jam. They can improve their bandwidth. I could have written an email to their technical team but I know what response they’re going to deliver:
“We seek your understanding in this regard.” ( No change.)
6. Let’s forget the bad things for a while. Let’s talk about the poetry for a while. Pam read my post and commented on it. Ideally I should have visited her blog. Arwen has posted another article. I am supposed to post a similar post on December 16 as organized by Pam.
I read some poetry and it’s a Friday. I liked reading some of them and some others were absolutely beautiful.
7. I am going to create some poetry here with words culled from vocabulary jams. I invite you to comment on it. Tell me how it can be improved. If you don’t like it: tell me about it. What do you not like about it?
Chaise longue: a long chair.
Backstop: a structure to prevent ball from going out in a game.
Gambit: a tactical act.
Beckon: to make a gesture with a hand to ask someone to follow or approach.
Rapscallion: a villain.
You sit on your chaise longue,
Oh sweet white damsel,
Your eyes dance as you flourish,
I beckon all the rapscallions to go yonder before you arrive on stage,
It’s not a gambit to win over you,
But a revelation,
To tell you,
How exquisitely beautiful you are!
Gingerly lyrically calculably,
Blithely I sing praises for your sublime perfection.
