Validity:  Checklist time...relationship, preparation, fewness, kissing, naming,
grammar...no problems.  I am allowing "nnn" to stand as the legitimate form of
doubling a double-n.  It certainly could be viewed as =a= legitimate way to do it,
which is all that's required for validity.  VALID.

Style:  Short, considering the number of requirements (+0.75).  I like the choice of
names for the monkey (+0.25).  +1.00

Reflections:  Mary, Jannet, Jennny, Sebastiann, Sheila, Bruce, George, Wonnzo
the Great, Wonnderful, Pennnyroyal, plus the monkey George.  And about eight
hours to go for new entries and the Wizard's eligibility.  Happy New Year!
