Gishwhes is once again over, so here is what I spent my last week doing:

Pyramids, picture books, haikus und food flags )
gwaevalarin: (Cas)
I was just out doing my favourite item for this years Gishwhes with some help from my Mom, who I can totally recommend as a photographer, by the way (and as a Mom, but she's mine and you can't have her. ;)).

While we were preparing the item, a mother walked by with her maybe 2-year-old child, and the poor girls was struggling and whimpering. She wasn't having a crying fit or anything. She just seemed scared and like she wanted to be anywhere but here.

The mother was dragging her along and downright yelling at her to get up and stop it and: "When Mommy says we go to the playground, then we go to the playground!"

...

What the actual fuck? What's wrong with some people?


Sorry, I have hardly been around lately. I'm mostly on Tumblr these days. But I'll share my Gishwhes items here when the hunt is over, and I hope to write more tv show reaction posts again.

How are you all?

We are officially allowed to share our items from this year's GISHWHES. Want to know what I spent the last week doing?

Only two more days until registration opens, and the madness starts again.

So far, I'll be on a team with [livejournal.com profile] raths_kitten, possibly [livejournal.com profile] dimturien - have you decided yet? - and a friend who is not on LJ.

Anyone else want to join us? There is a lot of crazy fun to be had.

if you don't know what I'm even talking about: Gishwhes 2012

With the winners announced I guess it is safe to post my GISHWHES submissions now. They may not be as awesome as some of the submissions I have seen, but they were a lot of fun and that's what it's all about, right?

I don't know if I even have anyone from the winning team on my flist, but I just wanted to say:

Congratulations, Rhino Team 3!


Enjoy your cup of tea (or your money, but seriously, is anyone going to choose that option?).
I can't wait to see some of the submissions online. And even less for SHEASH*, because it's going to be epic! And it's going to be the "first annual", I like the sound of that. *g*

Aw, it's hard to believe that the Rhino Hunt is officially over. It was so much fun.

*ask Misha ;)

If you need to read up on what has happened so far, you can find it here, there and over here.

Here is the email Misha sent us, starting Round 2:

Misha is capricious and arbitrary (his words) )

I did challenge number 8, together with [livejournal.com profile] obscuredrapture and her friend L. Here is what we came up with:

Well, so I didn't really have any parking tickets, but... )

Now, because my team is awesome, we decided that the 61 team members, 22 challenges, no duplicates, and you have to send something in to be part of the winning team was to be bent in every possible direction to include everyone. Either that, or we'd lose trying, but we'd lose as a team. It was [livejournal.com profile] nalathilion who came up with the most brilliant idea on how to achieve what we wanted. Here is the result, our submission for challenge 11, the original song. Please make particularly sure you watch the credits and listen to the amazing song C.'s friend S. wrote and recorded for us:

In conclusion:
SAVING RHINOS
HUNTING SCAVENGER ITEMS,
THE TEAM 4 BUSINESS.

I promised some of you, who don't participate in Misha's scavenger hunt, that I will keep you up to date. So here we go:

Last night I got an email from Misha with the rules for round two. I'm a little hesitant to publicly post the entire email while the round is still going on - not that there is any secret information in it, but it just doesn't feel right - but if you want it you can have it next Saturday after the deadline.

Anyway, Misha let everyone through to the next round, and we're all staying in our teams, trying to gather as many points as possible by fulfilling 22 tasks Misha gave us. Each task has to be recorded either with a photo or a video that includes our puzzle piece.
There are some things unclear, or as Misha puts it, the rules are "designed to optimize confusion and red-tape", but as far as I can say, Team 4 is doing very well.
We'll have wait and see how well we do compared to the other teams. :)
gwaevalarin: (Misha Con)
This was one of the most exhausting weekends I can remember. It's kinda nice to be able to breathe again for a moment.
I've spent the last days checking my emails and LJ pretty much every minute, breaking my Thunderbird in the process, because it couldn't handle the plethora of emails, notifications and attachments. Was able to fix it again last night.
I've been printing out puzzle pieces, staring at them hour upon hour while trying to put them together and decipher the writing. It was fun, but I can't even tell you how tired I am and if I never have to work on a jigsaw puzzle again, it will probably be too soon.

But, yeah, Team 4 rocks, and we figured it out and sent emails to Misha. I'm still waiting for a reply but it seems he mainly replied to people who didn't send him all the required information. So for now I'm going to assume that everything worked out. Not sure if I made it into the first 200 who will proceed to the next round but if my first email counts, the one without all the required information, I believe the chances aren't too bad. We'll see.

Either way, it was fun and I met some amazing new people here on LJ and over on Twitter. So it was definitely worth it.

Not regretting having sent that envelope yet. At all. You'll have to try a lot harder, Misha.

When I went downstairs to get the mail today, I may or may not have squeed loud enough to alert the entire neighbourhood. Because, between catalogues - we get an insane amount of those for some reason - and bills, there was a letter from a certain actor of a certain tv-show filmed in Vancouver.

photographic evidence of Misha's insanity )

By the way: I have piece number 49 of 61 of puzzle #4. And if you belong to my team, please go over here and let us know, so we can solve our puzzle quicker than the other teams and make it to the next round.

And to everyone not involved: Yes, this totally is some sort of social experiment Misha is conducting, using us as his guinea pigs - and possibly collecting all our real names and addresses to match them against our online names while he's at it. Why do you ask? ;)

A big thank you to [livejournal.com profile] nalathilion, who was the kind soul that sent the SASE for me, and therefore got me caught up in this brilliantly insane scavenger hunt.

Seriously, I love my fandom. &hearts

ETA: If you are on Team 4, or know anyone else who is on Team 4, please go/send them this way. Thank you.
