We had a last minute cancellation for Miscellaneous Monday, but the show must go on!

This post is an ode to @Thomas Schlegel and his Holiday themed collaborative story posts of the past, and to @Meg Bailey who had an amazing Confluence Holiday Workshop Mad Lib in 2021.

Here is the text for each of you to fill out in your Mad Lib below. Feel free to just list your words or build the Mad Lib fully into your comment. 

Bonus points in tagging a community member's name in the [PERSONS NAME] slots and getting them to submit their own entry!

TITLE: A WALK THROUGH THE FOREST

It was a [ADJECTIVE] and [ADVERB] day. I was tired of sitting in the [NOUN] and decided to [VERB] through the forests outside. As I [ADVERB] up my [PLURAL NOUN] and [ADVERB] to get ready, I could already smell the [NOUN] and the [PLURAL NOUN] of the forest.

As I opened my door, the sight of [PLURAL NOUN] and [PLURAL NOUN] left me [ADJECTIVE]. I began my [NOUN] through [PLACE] and quickly was alone with my [PLURAL NOUN].

Soon though I came across [PERSONS NAME] and asked them to join me on my trek - because it would be [ADJECTIVE] alone, possible [ADVERB].

[PERSONS NAME] was an Atlassian Community [NOUN] and loved the [PLURAL NOUN] and the [NOUN]. Their company made the [VERB] so much more [ADJECTIVE] and [ADJECTIVE].

When we got back, we checked the Atlassian Community to see how [ADJECTIVE] @Monique vdB's  Thermometer has risen for Trees II: The Likening and [ADVERB] that our post would help it [ADVERB].

TITLE: A WALK THROUGH THE FOREST

It was a [SLIMY] and [ACCIDENTALLY] day. I was tired of sitting in the [COW] and decided to [SHIMMY] through the forests outside. As I [DELIGHTFULLY] up my [HOUSES] and [NERVOUSLY] to get ready, I could already smell the [CHAIR] and the [CATS] of the forest.

As I opened my door, the sight of [CHILDREN] and [PLANES] left me [PURPLE]. I began my [SKY] through [MILWAUKEE, WI] and quickly was alone with my [KITES].

Soon though I came across [ANDREW] and asked them to join me on my trek - because it would be [QUICK] alone, possible [UNEXPECTEDLY].

[@Andrew Zimmerman ] was an Atlassian Community [SOCK] and loved the [SHOES] and the [BICYCLE]. Their company made the [FLY] so much more [TINY] and [GRAY].

When we got back, we checked the Atlassian Community to see how [LOUD] @Monique vdB's  Thermometer has risen for Trees II: The Likening and [JOVIALLY] that our post would help it [FRIGHTFULLY].

I think Atlassian is going need to pay you royalties on the new tagline - Quick Alone, Possible Unexpectedly! Thanks for the A+ submission.

Here is mine (I did not peek!)

TITLE: A WALK THROUGH THE FOREST

It was a [SUNNY] and [FAST] day. I was tired of sitting in the [BIKE] and decided to [FAST] through the forests outside. As I [QUICKLY] up my [SHOES] and [HASTILY] to get ready, I could already smell the [OUTSIDE] and the [SUNGLASSES] of the forest.

As I opened my door, the sight of [SOCKS] and [GAMES] left me [HAPPY]. I began my [CARPET] through [CANADA] and quickly was alone with my [KNEES].

Soon though I came across [@Jimmy Seddon] and asked them to join me on my trek - because it would be [EXCITED] alone, possible [SPEEDILY].

[JIMMY] was an Atlassian Community [TRUNK] and loved the [LEAVES] and the [HOME]. Their company made the [RUN] so much more [QUICK] and [SLOW].

When we got back, we checked the Atlassian Community to see how [HIGH] @Monique vdB's  Thermometer has risen for Trees II: The Likening and [HAPPILY] that our post would help it [BRILLIANTLY].

Here's mine, without peeking as well

 

TITLE: A WALK THROUGH THE FOREST

It was a cool and windy day. I was tired of sitting in the tomatoes and decided to go skiing through the forests outside. As I zipped up my hotpants and stumbled on to get ready, I could already smell the waffle and the pancakes of the forest.

As I opened my door, the sight of snowflakes and leprechauns left me breathless. I began my slalom through la-la-land and quickly was alone with my thoughts.

Soon though I came across @carolyn french  and asked them to join me on my trek - because it would be challenging alone, possible boring too.

Carolyn was an Atlassian Community Leader and loved the pancakes and the waffle. Their company made the hike so much more entertaining and fun.

When we got back, we checked the Atlassian Community to see how astronomically@Monique vdB's  Thermometer has risen for Trees II: The Likening and confirmed that our post would help it explode!

Not sure if I should repeat the word bank once more. Happy to do so if that's they way to go, @Andy Gladstone!

Thank you @Andy Gladstone for this hilarious idea... now on to read everyone else's! 

It was an [obsolete] and [wicked] day. I was tired of sitting in the [bicycle] and decided to [orate] through the forests outside. As I [figuratively locked] up my [M&Ms] and [frantically baked] to get ready, I could already smell the [fire escape] and the [courtiers] of the forest.

As I opened my door, the sight of [eggs] and [paintings] left me [abstract]. I began my [badminton shuttle] through [the Amsterdam office of Atlassian] and quickly was alone with my [books].

Soon though I came across [@Summer Hogan] and asked them to join me on my trek - because it would be [creative] alone, possible [wisely].

[Summer] was an Atlassian Community [canal boat] and loved the [windmills] and the [shovel]. Their company made the [banana slug] so much more [special] and [suspenseful].

When we got back, we checked the Atlassian Community to see how [shivery@Monique vdB's  Thermometer has risen for Trees II: The Likening and [weakened] that our post would help it [sacredly].

Yours makes a whole lot more sense than mine did since I just used adverbs... :-D

@Amanda Barber well I changed my adverbs to other parts of speech when I realized adverbs wouldn't work 😆

TITLE: A WALK THROUGH THE FOREST

It was a [wicked] and [always] day. I was tired of sitting in the [cactus] and decided to [sweat] through the forests outside. As I [angrily] up my [bakery] and [stupidly] to get ready, I could already smell the [smoke] and the [hawks] of the forest.

As I opened my door, the sight of [sloths] and [iPads] left me [hot]. I began my [computer] through [Hawaii] and quickly was alone with my [alligator].

Soon though I came across [@Monique vdB] and asked them to join me on my trek - because it would be [sketchy] alone, possible [patiently].

[Queen Mo] was an Atlassian Community [mother] and loved the [falcons] and the [water]. Their company made the [sweat] so much more [sweeter] and [colder].

When we got back, we checked the Atlassian Community to see how [fantastic] @Monique vdB's  Thermometer has risen for Trees II: The Likening and [beautifully] that our post would help it [quietly].

I don't know if anyone can tell from some of the words I used, but I live in HOT Arizona and my AC went out last night. It's been 16 hours now without AC and I'm melting! Hence the use of all the hot words!

TITLE: A WALK THROUGH THE FOREST

It was a [hot] and [sweaty] day. I was tired of sitting in the [sun] and decided to [hike] through the forests outside. As I [carefully] up my [plans] and [thoroughly] to get ready, I could already smell the [pine trees] and the [scents] of the forest.

As I opened my door, the sight of [cars] and [busses] left me [disappointed]. I began my [walk] through [HaHa Tonka park] and quickly was alone with my [thoughts].

Soon though I came across [@Summer_Hogan ] and asked them to join me on my trek - because it would be [very] alone, possible [unfriendly].

[Summer] was an Atlassian Community [Leader] and loved the [community] and the [comradery]. Their company made the [hike] so much more [pleasant] and [peaceful].

When we got back, we checked the Atlassian Community to see how [quickly] @Monique vdB's  Thermometer has risen for Trees II: The Likening and [supportive] that our post would help it [mature].

TITLE: A WALK THROUGH THE FOREST

It was a [long] and [tiresome] day. I was tired of sitting in the [office] and decided to [explore] through the forests outside. As I [tied] up my [bootlaces] and [rushed] to get ready, I could already smell the [soil] and the [pine trees] of the forest.

As I opened my door, the sight of [ominous clouds] and [closed windows] left me [uncertain]. I began my [trek] through [forest] and quickly was alone with my [circling thoughts].

Soon though I came across [@Carolyn Allen] and asked them to join me on my trek - because it would be [tricky] alone, possibly [unnavigable].

[@Carolyn Allen  was an Atlassian Community [member] and loved the [outdoors] and  [adventure]. Their company made the [journey] so much more [fun] and [interesting].

When we got back, we checked the Atlassian Community to see how [rapidly] @Monique vdB's  Thermometer has risen for Trees II: The Likening and [confident] that our post would help it [grow].
