Unconscious mutterings, the flawed process

Here's why it's flawed - Kim diligently does this word association, I read it and go, 'Cool, I'll do that' and copy and paste it from Kim's post, then delete her responses while trying not to read them so as not to influence my own word associations...

But then, as I fill in my own answers, I'm suddenly hit with paranoia: am I writing 'voices' after 'distant' because I want to, or because subconsciously I've read it in Kim's response, even though I don't recall anything past 'surround'.

And of course, if I go back to Kim's to check, I'll only read more of her answers whether I try to or not, and that will skew my responses even more...

It's not all whine and roses, this joint-blogging business.

Well your nuggets are nicer than Kim's.

And I can't believe I just typed that.

(Yes, you are the first to notice the blue. Congratulations! I think everybody else is ignoring me. Or they're colour blind.)

I will put the link off to LunaNina above my list - so you can go there, cut and paste the code and do it that way before seeing mine.

Yes, I could imagine that it's a challenge. But you both seem to be able to rise to the occasion, right?

Here via Michele's. I chose you from her blogroll. It's been ages! Hope you're both well.

I can't do these because I try desperately not to look at your answers but some slip into my not-so-subconscious and then I just look like a big copycat.

Suround with rose there's a beautiful mage.

That is why I have so much trouble with these types of things. I worry that it will look like I copied the answers from someone else.

What are those distant voices saying?
