Unconscious Muttering

It's been a long time since I've played this game, so here for your viewing pleasure is the latest installment of
Stolen, uh, borrowed, directly from the people who know, here are the rules:

Free association is described as a "psychonanalytic procedure in which a person is encouraged to give free rein to his or her thoughts and feelings, verbalizing whatever comes into the mind without monitoring its content." Over time, this technique is supposed to help bring forth repressed thoughts and feelings that the person can then work through to gain a better sense of self.

That's an admirable goal, but for the purposes of this excercise, we're just hoping to have a little fun with the technique. Each week I'll post ten words to which you can respond to with the first thing that comes to mind.

"Rules are, there are no rules." There are no right or wrong answers. Don't limit yourself to one word responses; just say everything that pops into your head. AND you don't have to have your words up on Sunday. Take all week if you want! Read the FAQ for more information.


Let me know if you decide to play along. You can get the words and the code here. With no further ado, here is my entry:

  1. Deputy :: Dawg

  2. Name :: Place

  3. Arrested :: Development

  4. Trade :: School

  5. Old :: Times

  6. Fingerprint :: Expert

  7. Dwarf :: Snow White

  8. Newspaper :: Dirty ink on my fingers

  9. Gabriel :: Angel

  10. Certificate :: of Madness

pretty much every answer is probably what I would have said. I'm not sure what Michele would have said, but she sent me here to visit!
