Categories Round 4 Rannygazoo!

Let your mind slip and slide down the linguistic pathways it loves.
Let it fall into new alcoves to discover ghost harpists igniting juniper knishes.
Get distracted, found, lost. Get silly.

This is a word game where you think of words that fit in certain categories and start with certain letters. Here is How to play.

Draw your grid, four cells by four cells.
Your categories across the tops of your four columns are:

Words related                  Embellishments                Synonyms              Made-up words
to show biz                      (up to you to define)         for "fix"                  (must include definition)

Your rows get these four letters:

Now, fill in the cells, a word related to show biz beginning with P, an embellishment beginning with P...
A word related to show biz beginning wtih I
A word related to show biz beginning with G

Post your answers in the comments section by July 13 for capricious adjudication and assignment of points.

Your score will be calculated according to these basic rules*:
1 point for each answer
+? for LOLs. Funny is good.
+10 if you include a flash fiction (50-200 words) that includes at least five of your answers.+1 for any of your answers that match my answers (unposted until the end)
+one billion for any made-up words or definitions that match mine (I expect to get outlandish)
+1/2 and 1/4 point increments for multi-word answers in which each word starts with the cue letter; e.g., for celebrities starting with H, Helen Hunt would score 1.5 points and Hollywood Hulk Hogan would score either 1.75 or 2 depending on my attention for fractional math at the time of scoring.
+10 points if you refer someone else to this game and they play it. No limit on this one. If 20 of your friends play categories, that's 200 freakin' points!
+1 point for first-timers (welcome, new players)

*as well as a fair amount of whim. Good luck and happy gaming!
