Late again. I seem to be losing my enthusiasm for the task. Maybe it's winter blahs. I've posted the mega and the mini and will finish the 10-word after I have some supper... or tomorrow. Sorry about my blahs and the weary heart of a lonely wordzzler.
Words for this week's 10-word challenge: ennui, stars, salivate, charisma, perpetual, stupid, measurement, triangle, obsession, bother And for the mini: gross, glorious, red ribbon, keys, sharp
Call it jealousy, but it really bothered her. Lucinda Jones could not understand for the life of her how that gross, odious and incredibly stupid woman Gracie - who went by the stage name Charisma and alternately (and perpetually) sang both sharp and flat, but never actually on key - had managed to find her way onto The Stars Have It and even to make it past some other contestants to the "red ribbon" phase of the competition. Ridiculous, unless "it" was a penchant for pretentiously overdone ennui, an obsession with her measurements and own image in the mirror. The woman had no talent and less brains, yet for some reason men salivated over her as though she was some glorious treasure. She had already been caught in more than one love triangle, but instead of making her the pariah she deserved to be, it seemed to increase her reputation as some kind of glorious celebrity. Life, Lucinda thought, was unfair. Jack, her husband let her tirade run its course, smiling. Lucinda, my love. What do you care? Your talent is the real thing. I chose you over Charisma and so will any talent agent with half a brain and business sense. She's a flash in the pan. You are a gifted artist. You win across the board. Don't envy her. Pity her.
Looking at the keys hanging on the big red ribbon, Amanda Gross could not believe her good luck. She had entered the Sharp Estate win your own home contest on a whim. It had never occurred to her that she might win and now here she was, owner of a glorious new house.... and a car too. And a check for $100,000. Life was looking pretty darned good.
