When I was in high school, I took a class in Visual Basic (a program for writing programs which is probably exquisitely obsolete by now). I did the projects assigned to me, but I'm a nerd, so I also wrote a lot of completely pointless programs that served little purpose beyond making me laugh. One of those programs did nothing but generate random sentences by randomly picking a sentence structure from a grouping of, like, ten pre-written sentences, then plugging in random nouns, adjectives and verbs from other lists of random words. Also the font and background colors would randomly change every time.

The result was, push a button, get a hilarious sentence paired with a visually distasteful color combination. Repeat until your classmates* want to kill you. I loved it.

I would give anything to have that program right now, to help me title the third book in the Xlormp series. Because I'm totally drawing a blank.

Suggestions/inspirational messages are welcome.




*Fun fact: I could not remember the word "classmates" until I proofread this entry. I originally wrote "desk neighbors".
