Alice Audrey started a word association game on her blog.  If you'd like to play, click this colorful Association button (immediately below), and you'll find the rules.

It's a different approach from the typical meme, so I thought I'd give it a try.  But I'm thinking I may have jumped into the pond too soon, and that learning how to swim first might have been wiser.  I'm not sure I'm "getting it," but I'm in, so here goes.

If I'm following the chain correctly (and I suspect I'm not), here are the responses so far, starting with Alice and ending with me:

1.  Excitement (Alice Audrey)
2.  Thrill (Hootin' Anni)
3.  Suspense (Hazel)
4.  Murder (Thom's Place 4 Well Whatever)

and now mine:

5.  Premeditated

I think I'm now supposed to tag someone else or leave it open-ended for anyone to join in.  I'm choosing the latter, since I'd be in trouble were someone to ask me how it works.  In any case, it'll be interesting to see how it all turns out.


  1. You're doing great! Don't forget to link to the people who came up with the words before yours. This is a group thing.

  2. I'm not sure what the deal is with the comments. I've got the right box flagged for comments to be allowed. Must be something wrong in my permissions. Thanks for letting me know there was a problem. I simply hadn't noticed.

  3. AA: Links are in. (Just as an aide, I had a hard time finding the page where you gave the first word. I found it by following a link on Hootin' Anni's blog. It didn't come up under your Association tab.)

  4. cool !
    I did not get the rules,
    thus not in yet!

  5. Sorry about the link issues. I'll go fix that, too. :)

  6. Well I'm following you again on this since i forgot I did this. My post will be up later this afternoon :) This is fun :)
