Some of Crush’s spare names…

But first…
Dulltown, UK: Today’s carefully selected adjectives are: uppity, telescopic, poufed, haughty, premorse, monomaniacal, kenotic, retiary, and bouncy.

Aha! I just received an email from Veronica Crush, writer from the glory days of the Hull Surrealist League, now living in New York with tall tree surgeon and heir to a multimillion dollar fortune, Monty Tick. She says that she’s experiencing a sudden surge of enthusiasm for writing and is emerging from a ‘bit of a dry spell’.

As her imagination is currently buzzing, she said that she didn’t need them anymore and attached the list of names for me to use in my writing, if I so wished.

    I think I was at university with Mickey ‘the nose’ Stiffer. Mind you, it was 1968.

    No, I think he was in a year above me. Mind you, I think Phoebe-Ann Dirtle was there as well. Nice girl. She tried to organise a 40th anniversary reunion a while back. I didn’t go.
