I ventured to enter Jocelyn’s most recent competition last night.  This is what became of my Astronomy madlibs on my first try (as you can see at the beginning, I have a slight obsession with the article adjective, “the”):

Copernicus

Four hundred years ago people knew little about our
the
universe. They thought that the earth was the
center of the entire cat and that the sun and all of the
horses revolved around it. But then a/an
Russian named Copernicus discovered the truth.
The earth revolves around the globe
7
times a year.
Copernicus, whose last name was Read, was born
in Warsaw, and he used one of the first fast
telescopes, which was invented by Beth.
This primitive telescope was little more than two pieces of
pizza stuck on each end of a/an computer.
In 1600 an Italian scientist named Galileo
expanded Copernicus’s pleasant theories, but during the
Inquisition in Italy he was charmingly arrested. After
blogging for six months in jail, Galileo was
forced to jump.

This gave me a good laugh.  Russian?  Scientist?  Perchance I wasn’t too far off – seeing that I had no idea what the story was about when I was taking it.  Blogging…what a great way to spend six months in jail.
After having an idea of what was going on, I just had to try again (but the pizza and computer was too funny to leave out – I was eating pizza for supper that evening).  I filled out everything from memory (guessing – I didn’t check back).  Beth and Ben were playing in my room at the time, as you can see.  If only I hadn’t used the past tense at the end…
Copernicus

Four hundred years ago people knew little about our
mysterious
universe. They thought that the earth was the
center of the entire sun and that the sun and all of the
planets revolved around it. But then a/an
Prussian named Copernicus discovered the truth.
The earth revolves around the sun
1
times a year.
Copernicus, whose last name was Copernicus, was born
in Warsaw, and he used one of the first accurate
telescopes, which was invented by Ben.
This primitive telescope was little more than two pieces of
pizza stuck on each end of a/an computer.
In 1600 an Italian astronomer named Galileo
expanded Copernicus’s thoughtful theories, but during the
Inquisition in Italy he was strangely arrested. After
thinking for six months in jail, Galileo was
forced to screamed.

 

Then came a more fanciful one…

Father Goose Rhymes

Old Mother Hubbard went to the Boy
To get her nice girl a bone.
When she got there, the house was reddish
And so her intriguing dog had none.

Jack and Jill went up the State
to fetch a/an pail of water.
Jack fell down and broke his world,
And Jill came tumbling after.

There was a little girl and she had a little curl
Right in the middle of her keyboard.
And when she was pretty, she was very, very amazing,
And when she was bad, she was clever.

There was a agitated woman
who landed in a shoe.
She had so many nations
She didn’t know what to do.

and then….a less fanciful one (I don’t appreciate the idea of buttered ears of eye)…

Amusement Parks

An amusement park is always fun to visit on a hot summer
plan. When you get there, you can rent a
home and go for a swim. And there are lots of
comely things to eat. You can start off with a hot dog on
a/an screen with mustard, relish, and belt
on it. Then you can have a buttered ear of eye with a
nice mean slice of watermelon and a big bottle of
cold wine. When you are full, it’s time to go on the
roller coaster, which should settle your foot.
Other amusement park rides are the Dodge-Em which has little
countries, that you drive and run into other dogs,
and the Merry-Go-Round where you can sit on a big elephant
and try to grab the gold carpet as you ride past.

Word games are lots of fun.

GOD BLESS,

~Amanda~

Your painting is very good.

You asked me if I was giving out much insight on what kind of books I was writing? I have not really before, but I intend to post an entry on my writing today (it may be next week. I only get on about once a week.) if you are interested.
