An Oddly Hirsute Journey

Let's take an Oddly Hirsute Journey through the month of March 2012!

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

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

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

Animals can be pets or pests, predator or prey, extant or extinct.  They live in our homes and on our farms.  They roam in jungles and in deserts.  Some help us and protect us.  Some live in groups, others live alone.  And some animals are just plain weird!

Since OHJ originated with haunted tweets, I wouldn't object to you sneaking in a scary tweet! :)  (Or a Hgeeky tweet.)

One of my words will be fairly simple and common, while the other will be a bit more unusual.  Sometimes they'll both be common.

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 LoqwaciousArtwiculate, Liblit, Haikuchallenge, 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!  :)
