An Oddly Hungry Journey



 Let's take an Oddly Hungry Journey through the month of November 2011!

Remember last month's journey?  We had so much fun that we're doing it again!


Every day in November at 7:13 a.m. (New York timezone*), I'll tweet two words with the hashtag #ohj from @OddlyStarry.

Your job is to contribute one or more tweets inspired by one or both words.  Tag your tweet with #ohj or #OHJ.  Since we're taking an oddly hungry journey through the month of November, try to make your tweet related to hunger or thirst in some way.

Why hunger?  Because here in the U.S., we now have mountains of Halloween candy teasing us everywhere we look.  And November 24 is Thanksgiving, a day for feasting (and thanking)!

Some ideas include food, drinks, restaurants, bars, parties, feasts, coffee shops, etc.

Don't forget that, thanks to the richness of language, you can hunger for companionship or thirst for knowledge....

(And since the game originated with haunted tweets, I wouldn't object to you sneaking in a scary tweet! :)

One of my words will be fairly simple and common, while the other will be a bit more unusual.

In addition to typical text tweets containing a short story, pun, haiku, gogyohka, tanka, etc., you could also make a link to a photo, a video, a sound, or anything else you can think of!

You don't have to use the word exactly as given.  For example, if the word is "run", you could use run, runs, running, ran, or runnable.  Or you could just use the word as an inspiration, and go with sprint or race.  Keep in mind that many words have more than one definition, and more than one part of speech.

You could also combine one of my words with words from other games like Loqwacious, Artwiculate, and others!

Once in a while, just to keep things fresh, I might ask you to supply the caption to a picture, or I might do a hashtag game.

Have fun!  :)
