Ah, but can you get them all in the one sentence?

Annie said...

lipstick

Darragh said...

And how many will you use to describe yourself?

Uncle Dick Madeley said...

Not bad but I think you're missing 'cabal', 'iridescent' and 'flagellum'.

Darren said...

Blithe - excellent.

I plan on making 'riven' an all season word, not just for Christmas.

Andrew said...

B - heh. oddly, that did occur to me once I used gosling. Don't think I liked that film, reminded me too much of me. Minus the crack addiction and charsima.

Catherine - Ummm...I'll work on it.

Annie - Do tell Pablo I say hi.

Darragh - One, maybe. Directly after a shower.

Dick - Excellent words there. Though the one I really felt I was missing as soon as I'd published this was 'malleable'.

Daz - Yeah, that's a good one too. And reminds me that I'm quite a fan of 'craven'.

i think i'm gonna go with the words 'inevitable', 'ubiquitous' and perhaps i'll go mad and throw in the odd 'inevitably ubiquitous'
