For you musicians

"They've cancelled my performance!" said Tom disconcertedly.

"I started to write a symphony but ended up with a tone poem," said Tom capriciously.

"I never knew there were so many cars in Paris!" said Tom ruefully. "rue" is the French word for "street"

"I just adore sunsets!!" she beamed colorfully.
"I prefer moonlight." he reflected dimly.

But lackadaisically is my favorite.

I agree. It's even been published - printed in an old GAMES magazine, mid-Nineties is my guess, and kudos indeed to the bloke who first thought it up.

Don't worry, CB. I'll give you credit for it. Same thing happens to me all the time.

"If this computer freezes one more time, I'm going to ice it," she said coldly. (um.... this one is too close to home, at the moment!)

And now some simple ones:

"I don't think I'll be here for that meeting" she said absently.

"Oh, no, I've burned dinner!" she said crisply.

"I think I spent too much money on this Rolex" he said extravagantly.

"I plan to make a lot of money!" he said richly.

"Let me make you a milkshake," he said smoothly.

"Don't walk in here; I broke a glass!" he said sharply.

"I've got my bra on backward," she said titillatingly.
