Salubriously Exubriant

There are many strange ways that I amuse myself throughout the day. Some days, I scavenge for interesting blogs, some days I do homework, and on days like yesterday, I stay busy by seeing how high I can count.

One of my favorite ways to keep my mind occupied is to start with a verb or adjective of choice, and then try to think of humorously inappropriate adverbs. Though this sounds lame, I can confidently assure you that it is the most exhilarating, enthralling activity in the history of mankind.

Some examples:

Gently murdered -The original, and maybe still the best example of this
Haggardly demure
Pleasantly ablaze
Frantically napped -I enjoy picturing what this would look like
Violently fertile -I have absolutely no idea what this means, but it amuses me
Refreshingly satanic -This applies to many of my activities after church on Friday night

And my personal favorite, from my old friend Chris Brenna:
Gallantly raped – I love trying to envision a scenario where this occurs

Any other suggestions?

    conveniently flamboyant

    It reminds me of one of my friends and also the word buoy.
