Love is a Scrabbled Vole

Hi, it’s Susie Dentinfang, word expert at the Greenygrey and Countdown to the Full Moon, where I am fortunate to work with the lovely Wachel Wiley-Coyote and the lucky Nick Wereh.

It’s been an exciting week at the Greenygrey, with the proposal of Greenygreyliens as a collective noun for you lot going before the Board of Greenygrey at the next New Moon council on May 10th (please remind us if we are too excited by the new moon and forget to post the result!).

You’ve been such great Greenygreyliens this year that I’ve got a special hot off the press offering for you. And if you love LOVES and VOLES these might be perfect for you; and if you also love SCRABBLES (I just realised I’ve drifted into Orlovianism!) they might just be your favourite poems ever!

Love falls down
a board hole
twisting and turning
mixed and scrabbled
if reassembled joining
word with initial
becomes more valuable
as a vole.

I told you to show L-O-V-E
did I need to spell it out to you
you had to choose V-O-L-E
with your fondness for rodents
then they used the V
for a triple-letter point score
winning them the game
Voulez-Vouz
that’s mixed-up vole love for you!

New Words and Phrases Passed by Board

Hi, it’s Susie Dentinfang, word and phrase expert at the Greenygrey and Countdown to the Full Moon. As you will no doubt have read yesterday, ‘Werewolfie’ created a great new Greenygreyism, and we are delighted to announce that a carefully crafted final version has now been passed by the Board of Greenygreyisms for ‘Full Honours Greenygreyism’ status. The final phrase is:

‘At the Greenygrey it’s not the winning that matters,
it’s the taking part… in greenygrey.’

Werewolfie would again like to thank the Shanghai Masters, Denver Post and tennis players for making his dream of creating a ‘Full Honours Greenygreyism’ come true, and especially Tomas Berdych.

The Board only sit once a month, in line with the New Moon, and therefore also reviewed Michael Wolf and Andy Wolfhol’s ‘were-the werewolf’ from September 25th at the latest meeting.

Michael and Andy applied for Full Honours status for their phrase, and gave compelling presentations in support of their new Greenygreyism. They did enough to win official recognition for ‘were-the werewolf’, but it was classed as a Grade Two Greenygreyism.

Receiving G2 status in the GG world is nothing to be ashamed of, when you consider the quality of some of the other Greenygreyisms, and the pair of werewolf-wordsmiths (W2) ‘were’ not at all disappointed.
