Win Another 20 With New Word Monday

| October 23, 2007


Well folks once again it is time for another Monday New Word Contest. To enter all you have to do is leave a comment on this post using all 5 Monday New Words in some kind of scenario.

I know the words are hard and they don’t even go together. I figured that out when I created my entry. Never the less this is a very easy way to possibly get a cool 20 USD in your PayPal account. Here’s my entry:

I like to think I am very cosmopolitan, but when my dream date surprised me with a trip to the Sushi restaurant, I searched for a way to have a bouleveresment. I obstreperously announced I’m not eating raw fish.

Au contraire“, said my date, “California rolls are vegetarian”. As I nibbled on California rolls and shots of Sake, the piece de resistance of the night was when I said, “Thanks for the unique evening I won’t be going out with you again”.

Perhaps I should of called this “French Word Monday”. 🙂 This contest will end November 3rd. I’ll announce the winner on the 4th or 5th along with my ipod winner.

So, don’t be shy stretch your brain a little and possibly win some cash. After this contest I will be changing my New Word Monday page to Words 2 Know.

I will still post words of interest, and I will still have contests using them. The only difference is the words don’t have to be posted on Monday’s. Which will give me some spontaneity and a chance to post cool words as I come across them. And hopefully the words will be matched better so writing the contests comments will be easier. Thanks and Good Luck!

    Hi there

    All we do is write about contests in the blogosphere so hopefully we can send you a few more entries too!

    Regards, Matt.

    Won’t be going out with your date again, because of Sushi!? How obstreperous! You really need to be a little bit more cosmopolitan, and this requires a complete bouleversement in your whole attitude. And, ever thought that maybe, just maybe, the whole Sushi idea was your date’s “pièce de résistance“, to win you over?

    Original competition concept. Good job!

  3. Domtan says:

    au contraire , you should have taken this gesture as a complement.

  4. Emma says:

    Thank-you Domtan, that was an awesome entry. Plus you are in the lead so far. 🙂

    Here’s my try:

    Having lived in a cosmopolitan city for very long, Jason was quite comfortable dealing with people of other nationalities. However, one day, while having a drink at a local pub, he was surprised to hear the bouleversement involving the man sitting next to him and the French bartender. The man seemed to be convinced that the bartender had shortchanged him by giving him a watered-down version of his requested beverage. Obstreperously, he demanded that the bartender apologize and compensate him. “Monsieur, I have done nothing wrong. Au contraire, you should apologize to me and the gentleman next to you.” The man was momentarily stunned. “What?” The bartender just smiled. Then came the piece de resistance. “Monsieur, I did tell you in French that your drink was the one on your right. But you drank the gentleman’s drink instead. Or do you mean to say that you came to a French pub but do not understand French?” Jason braced himself. But the man, looking bewildered and a little ashamed, did not answer but left quietly.

  6. Emma says:

    BT, that was great. So far you have a 50/50 chance. Thanks for the very clever entry. 🙂 Emma

  7. Don’t forget to post your blog contest information at let more people know it.

  8. Au contraire my blogging buddy! This cosmopolitan diva (said with tongue in cheek without laughing my head off) thinks that the piece de resistance is just a bouleveresment of imagination that is so obstreperously overthought.

    (how’s that for being deep… as in I need my boots on!) ROFL

    Blogged ya:

  9. Emma says:

    Thanks Laura, Great choice of words. 🙂 Emma

  10. Fernando Tasso says:

    “As a cosmopolitan I did not feel strange that the piece of resistance of that extremist party were nothing but bouleveresment; au contraire, I expected some kind of obstreperously ostentatious demonstrations.”

    NOTE (OUT OF COMMENT”: According to my speller, the correct form is: “bouleversement”

  11. Emma says:

    Thanks for the entry Fernando. I don’t think either of us are disputing bouleversement. If you look in my words. It’s spelled: bouleversement and Pronounced: \bool-vair-suh-MAWN\,

  12. Joshua says:

    While looking at Renoir’s masterpiece, Luncheon of the Boating Party, considered by many to be his pièce de résistance, Mark obstreperously thought “Au contraire; there’s a decided lack of cosmopolitan appeal”–instead, there seemed to be a bouleversement of ideas and concepts colliding chaotically, preventing him from fully appreciating the piece.

    Mark was considered by many to be insane.

  13. Emma says:

    Wow, Thanks for the entry! 🙂

  14. TheContender says:

    The recent reference of Philippine Medical schools in the recent season premiere of the Desperate Housewives has created a cosmopolitan bouleveresment among the Filipino community. Au contraire, a number of Filipinos are obstreperously saying it’s no big deal and the sudden formation of piece de resistance against the ABC Network is outright unnecessary.

  15. TheContender says:

    The recent reference of Philippine Medical schools in the season premiere of the Desperate Housewives series has created a cosmopolitan bouleveresment among the Filipino communities all over the world. A number of Filipinos are obstreperously saying that mentioning of such line is totally unnecessary while another faction says it’s no big deal and the sudden formation of piece de resistance is outright unnecessary. Au contraire, ABC Network has expressed their apology, saying they have no intent to cause slurs against the Filipinos in that premiere episode.

  16. Emma says:

    Thanks Contender. Very creative! 🙂

  17. David says:

    Hi. I saw that you stopped by and wanted to return the favor. Welcome to Blog Catalog. Let me know if I can help in any way. I don’t have any links with writing weblogs. And since I am in the middle of trying to write something maybe it would be a good idea if I read some! You think?

  18. Emma says:

    Of course I do David. Thank-you for stopping by. 🙂 Emma

  19. Jody says:

    My Piece de resistance is a lovely parkland trail I enjoy taking my dog for a walk on. Au Contraire, there are lots of brush and small tree stumps that make it difficult as much as we love the place.Being the cosmopolitan person I am, I will sometimes take the street and be absolutely obstreperous, which is totally different than walking on the trail. We occasionally come in contact with other dogs and then it becomes a total bouleversement situation and we pull apart the dogs and head home.

  20. Emma says:

    Thank-you, Jody! That was fabulous! 😀 Emma

  21. Daria says:

    The cosmopolitan American female stared at the Museum’s piece de resitdance with adimiration and awe. She
    cringed as her osbstreperous companion scoffed at the painting. As she stepped back, a handsome gentleman approached her, and in perfect French
    stated his bouleversement. “Au Contraire, fair lady… This is only one of many paintings in the Louvre. You must view them all to make your own judgment of its piece de resistance.”
    With that, he grasped her hand ever so gently and guided her through one of the world’s most beloved museums.

  22. Emma says:

    Great entry Daria! I’m glad you stopped by. Good Luck! 🙂 Emma

    Every morning, I check in my alternative school students and search them for weapons. Usually, it goes smoothly. Monday was the exception. Five students came to the school and created an immediate bouleveresment of the environment.

    “Au contraire,” I commanded with a stern, forbidding look on my face, designed to intimidate the students into taking their disagreement off-campus.

    Alas, the students are not quite as cosmopolitan as I, and had no earthly idea what I had just said. Ignored, I issued my piece de resistance, which was calling the police. When I told them to stop threatening one another, the primary instigatorobstreperously said, “The hell I will”. (Edited for publication.)

    Unfortunately, this is based on a true event. Thanks for a fun contest!!

  24. Emma says:

    Michelle that was awesome. Your posts are always so creative. Even when they are based on true stories. Thanks for entering. Emma

  25. contestant says:

    Would have love to enter the contest. But just got back and have many more contest to post about for my readers. Anyway, here’s my post about your great contest

  26. Chanya says:

    “Yes, that’s correct. One ticket to London departing this Friday. Thanks. Good-bye.”

    Hrmpf. Look at her. She thinks she’s so cosmopolitan. All excited about her trip. Well what about me? What about my needs? Does she think I like having to deal with Mrs. Myers while she’s gone? Doesn’t she realize the woman rarely cleans my litter box? And the way that woman speaks to me is so insulting – she treats me like a dog! Not to worry though. I’ll just lie here and plan my latest bouleversement. I’ll be perfectly docile and sweet. I won’t get obstreperous; oh no, au contraire, I’ll make her think I’m fine with her temporary abandonment. And then, after she returns I’ll wait until she’s not looking and leave a “piece de resistance” in her favorite pair of shoes.

    Merrrw. Long live La Revolution!

  27. Emma says:

    Chanya, that was brilliant! 😀 Very creative and original, the perspective of a cat. Thanks for the entry and visiting. 🙂 Emma
