TASK - Acronyms

Here is a list of some brass & percussion instruments:

  • Cornet
    Trumpet
    Soprano
    Flugel Horn
    Tenor Horn
    French Horn
    Baritone
    Euphonium
    Bass
    Side Drum

Each housemate must come up with a different sentence formed of the initial letters of those items - and each sentence must be RELEVANT to the topic i.e. Brass Banding.

For example:

CORNET (Conical Object, Rather Nice, Exquisite Tone)

Each housemate - 2nd man down, homicidalbennyboy, seedhouse, super_sop & kitten - must post their sentences in this thread by 10pm tomorrow night.

Enjoy,

Hello BB, I have a busy day tomorrow as I have rehearsals most of the day, and then a school concert in the morning.
However I will still do the task, but I may have a problem getting it posted online- I will try my best to get it online.
If I can't get online, can I send it to someone to post it on for me, or can we have a slight extension to 12pm- lunchtime the next day pleeeeeease?

Seeing as BB is feeling charitable tonight Seedhouse - 12pm Thursday it is. BUT JUST FOR YOU - THE ORIGINAL DEADLINE REMAINS FOR THE OTHERS.

Yay! Found time in school (a few hours it has taken me! :shock: ) to complete the deadline on time, rather than within my extension (thanks for giving it to me anyway BB! :roll: :wink: )
Took a lot of time and effort, and my brains in overload, but anyway:

Cornet - Calm Only Random, Not Easily Tuned!

Trumpet - Trashy, Rotten. Upper Middle Pitch, Easily Tuneful!

Soprano - Sounds Operatic, Pleasant Ranged, Always Nearly OK!

Flugel Horn - Flourishingly Lavish, Under Gracious Embouchure Lips. Has Other Recognised Niceties!

Tenor Horn – Tantalisingly, Extremely Nice, Over Rainbows- Heard Occasionally, Rarely Nicely!!!

French horn – Fascinatingly Rubbish, Extremely Not Childish, Horrifically Overly Retarded Notes!

Baritone – Baritone Are, Really, Interesting. Terrifically Often Nearly Elegant!

Euphonium – Exuberant Upper Pitches, However Only Normal, Is Unusually Moving!

Bass - Booming And Seriously Sexy!

Side Drum – Slick, Ideally Diametrically Extravagant, Dangerous, Robust, Under Maintenance!

Bass Drum – Basically Always Satanic Sounding, During Random Unusual Movements!

Hi-hat – Hit Irritably, Hard And Terribly!


Hope that's ok :wink: (it best be! :( )

BB would like to congratulate the housemates on an excellent task. There are some super sentences on offer there. However, quite a few liberties have been taken. BB was prepared to overlook these as long as the instruments were spelt properly.

With this in mind, would Seedouse please explain to BB what a 'French Orn' or a 'Frenc Horn' is?

Perhaps you should have taken advatnage of BB's generosity in allowing you an extension Seedhouse? As a result of asking for an extension - and ignoring it - no more concessions are to made to any housemate in any future tasks.

Therefore, BB is sad ;) to say that the housemates have failed this task.

Your forfeit will take the form of a quiz and is to be posted soon. However, there will be a reward on offer if housmates manage to complete the quiz. A reward I am sure that will make 'most of you' want to pass the quiz! ;)

Don't worry about it Seedhouse, I thought that task was much harder than it looked!!

We'll walk the quiz!

Unlucky housemates, a terrific effort from all :tup :tup

Time for a little drinky I think. :guiness
