Party Game #1 - D100D Mad Libs

Here's the deal. We're going to play a round of D100D Mad Libs. (The game where you fill in the blanks of a story with your own words, and we see who can come up with the silliest story passage.) The tricky part is: you give me the words first, and then you find out the sentence they fit into. So - I need 15 words from you in order to play this game. In the comment area, leave me a list of words in this order. Don't forget your email address!
  1. Time period (like two days or two centuries or two hours)
  2. Verb
  3. Plural noun
  4. Adjective
  5. Noun
  6. Verb
  7. Noun
  8. Noun
  9. Adjective
  10. Adjective
  11. Noun
  12. Adjective
  13. Noun
  14. Adjective
  15. Plural noun
DEADLINE for the Mad Libs Contest is Midnight TONIGHT! (That's 11:59:59 EST Saturday Jan 31st.) Tomorrow morning (Official D100D Launch Day) I'll post the passage, and figure out who made the silliest sentence with their words! PRIZE: A signed copy of The Dust of 100 Dogs. There's another contest going on, too - go here to enter! Good Luck! I'll be back at 5pm with a post you won't want to miss. And have you signed the guest book yet? ------------------------------------------>

Please take pity on me and count this entry! I remembered the contest and rushed to the post, but I had realized this two minutes after the deadline. I guess that's just my rotten timing again...

The extra minutes were spent filling this out. I don't even know why I'm trying. I won't win. But I love Mad Libs.
