A Contest!

It’s been a while since we’ve had a contest around here.  I figured that with finals next week we needed a bit of fun.  Here’s the idea… make a caption for the picture below.  Simple enough.  Now remember to leave your submission as a comment.  You have until May 25 at noon.  The winner will be announced the next day.

Come on guys!  This has been up for a week and there’s only TWO entries?  Trust me the prize is really worth it.  For those that would like to comment and don’t have the privilege of living in the center of the US the prize CAN be shipped… internationally even if it comes to it.  So… what’s stopping you.  It can be dirty, funny, cute.  If you don’t post it you won’t win.

An Obsession, A Challenge, and a Prize

First, the obsession.  Tea.  I was looking for a specific tea in my cupboard when I realized that I have an unhealthy amount of tea.  No wonder R is always fussing when I bring home yet another box of leafy goodness.  Seriously.  I removed all the boxes of tea and as I organized them and put them away I wrote a list.  Six brands and a total of 14 boxes (I didn’t count the plain bags of tea for ice tea in the summer OR the second box of my ultimate fave).

Now, for the challenge.  I’ve been stumbling over posts here are there about the six-word memoir.  It really is neat.  Here’s some that caught my eye.

Ignorance is bliss. Genius is misery.

Your challenge is to submit your own six word memoir.  The best submission gets a prize.  Hurry.  The deadline is 11:00am Veteran’s Day (11/11/08).  I will announce the winner that evening!

Get to writing people!  Now, I have to start scrounging up a prize.
