A manic Monday indeed. Susanna says #zelfchenchallenge is back! Three new options to choose from. Your choices this week are:
PARVENU: Newly rich
AGELAST: A person who never laughs .
ENERVATE (or any variation of it, as I used enervator): Weaken morally or mentally .
For those who aren’t familiar with elfchens, they are short poems consisting of five lines, using a words per line structure of 1,2,3,4,1. Start yours with what I ended mine with (the above listed words). You can choose one, or do all of them if you’d like. All are welcome to join, so feel free to tag people. The more the merrier. Have fun!
Double and triple elfchens highly encouraged, but certainly not necessary:)
Submissions due by Saturday 12/22 at 12:00am EST. PLEASE turn in before then, as I have to write them all down before my live, and last second submissions are a huge inconvenience to me. I will be reading them on my livestream Saturday at 3pm EST. Tag me or use #zelfchenchallenge . .

Los Angeles, USA — Tonight's @realaimeemann + @realtedleo Christmas/Chanukah extravaganza was full of charm, fun, and real surprises—including @jeffgoldblum taking a turn on the keys and @susannahoffsofficial showing up with her Rickenbacker and knocking out 'Hazy Shade of Winter'... A highlight for me was @themilkcartonkids, whose performance was astonishingly good. (Thanks to @liat44 and @jorin_bossen for inviting us!) ✌️
