Rainblow

mrskellyscl

Created by: mrskellyscl

Pronunciation: rain-blow

Sentence: Jim was always chasing rainblows. Everytime he thought his dreams would come true, something always managed to blow it.

Etymology: rainbow: "I'm always Chasing Rainbows" was a song by Harry Carroll in 1918 about an optimistic person who was constantly pushed back by the events of life, and was a popular song of the time. It was featured in a 1941 movie sung by Judy Garland. It was also recorded by Bing Crosby, Perry Como and other crooners of the era. It was also one of my grandmother's favorite songs. + Blow: 1) a sudden unexpected event 2) slang - "that blows" -- something that sucks or is a bummer

Good word chris. I have been giftmiffed a few times. Hey, does anyone know what the official title will be for the game winner? They should be able to come up with a good title. How about adding "VbD" to the playername since the winner should be awarded a "Doctorate in Verbotomy".

The winner (mother?) will be drunk with the power, so how about "Verbloto"?

- 2006-11-24: 11:48:00
Mother drunk?? Never!!! (heavy sarcasm)
