He frenziedly did his last minute Christmas shopping.

He, as always, waited until Christmas Eve to do his shopping and had to hurry around with the frenzied, maniacal last minute crowd.  (No, I'm not talking about my husband....whew, he was looking over my shoulder)

new adverb... 'COLDLY'   (because it is FREEZING here!  Us Californians can't take the cold...)

"I would never associate with the likes of you," she replied coldly.

"I would never associate with the like of you," she replied tossing the agent's editing service pamphlet back in their face.

Next adverb: swiftly (did we do that one already?)
May the road rise up to meet you. May the wind always be at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face,and rains fall soft upon your fields. And until we meet again, may no spiders fall on your head.

Bline's obvious attempt to build Karma swiftly backfired as he rarely seemed to be logged on at the same time as his counterparts. :faint:

Keep this going. Great idea to get those literary juices flowing.

Next word: "Cautiously"

While Bline was away paying bills, Lannie surreptitiously snuck in a funny adverb and more karma. Whoohoo!   ;)

By the way, I just started reading your first 5. Gripping right from the start. I'll let you know when I finish.   



Next: Precariously

He precariously teetered on the edge of the cliff.

He teetered, rocks sliding beneath his feet, the wind blowing with ferocity at the edge of the cliff and the white water rapids thrashing two-hundred feet below.

Next: OUTRAGEOUSLY

A potted plant doesn't know how to bitch for food--it'd be dead in a week--another brown desk ornament between his lamp and phone; "I'll treasure it always!" he said unctuously, hoping next Christmas she'd get him something useful like a pen.
