Would anyone be interested if we started a new sentence (in this thread or a new one?) The current one seems to be stuck in a cycle and it isn't as fun when you remember the last few you have made and it hasn't changed terribly.

It'll change sooner or later (it was completely different at the beginning of this page). It might help if you followed the no-posting-more-than-once-in-a-span-of-six-posts rule, that way it has some time to change before you see it again. And if it still doesn't change, try giving vague or excessively specific descriptions, or creatively reinterpret something (i.e. if it vaguely resembles something, even if you think it was intended to be something else, call it whichever of the two you want).
