    It is perfectly correct to use the same verb form multiple times in the same sentence.

    Everyone at the party was singing and dancing, eating and drinking, and generally having a good time.

    The real problem is the use of "your" in "I'll keep your company," which is a mistake; it should be "I'll keep you company."

    I'm wondering about your use of the present continuous (is it meant to show duration/repeated action/something else?)... it seems odd to me. I'll echo dermott ;) and ask again: are they your own sentences, davidf :)?

    Could you please explain a bit?
