Puppet-Show Pre-production notes


The newest puppet-show from the House of Glee is in pre-production state. It's based on the Grimms' fairy tale, "One Eye, Two-Eyes, Three-Eyes." Expect its official release next Tuesday, December 26, on Boxing Day. Boxing Day is also the Feast of St. Stephen, so it's totally appropriate for you to sing "Good King Wenceslas". To fund this production, I'm going to ask for your help. In lieu of money, I want words. Please place one of your favorite words in the comments section. Fifty-cent words are quite welcome, but if you feel so inspired, one or two 10 dollar words will really put us into the black. Maybe we'll even have a special effect or two!

So far, we have a good showing. Here are the offerings for the Word Fund:

incandescence
meretricious
gobsmacked
shenanigans
"hilarity ensues"
bumpkin
marauding
gopher (plenty of options here)
nacreous
quibble
sartorial
obnubilate
hoarfrost
ineffable

Keep them coming, please.

incandescence



(and in totally the other philosophical direction)

meretricious.


Oh, and I currently love the word "gobsmacked."

Graceanne: What riches! Thank you. I'm confident that this puppet-show will be a well-funded production.

I'm tempted to boycott this post simply because you're not doing "Resevoir Dogs", but shall move on anyway.

Hmmmmm, You know how much I love "shenanigans" and also if you could incorporate the phrase "hilarity ensues" I would be most appreciative.

Nonny, my dear: I have never seen "Reservior Dogs," but do not think that your suggestion went unnoted. There is definitely violence in the fairy tale I chose. Goat entrails, I tell you, goat entrails! Thank you for "Shenanigans" and "hilarity ensues."

"Good King Wence's car/backed out on a pice of Stephen"

OK, to make up for that I offer the following words:

Bumpkin

Marauding

Gopher

nacreous?

Alkelda the Gleeful said...

Yay! Just to show you I'm not simply mooching from the kindnesses of friends, I'm contributing some funds from my own store of words:

quibble
sartorial

BlueMamma said...

got room for another? obnubilate.

(i'm reading patrick o'brien these days - a veritable warehouse for obscure and delicious words.)

akelda, I have always loved the word "resurrection." That, and "affection." Not necessarily in that order.

cassowary? that one might be tricky.
