Editor's ChallengeJuly 19th, 2009 in blog
Ah, hahaha! I knew this would come around the junk bend sooner or later! I will be receiving junkable items from the contributors over the next couple of weeks and my mission (and I have no choice other than to accept it) will be to create something out of each and every piece of junk I receive. Hmmm...you get what you give! I can't wait to see what I get. Do I still have time to change my address?! After reading the following comments from a few of the contributors you'll know what I mean. Wish me luck!
This from our very own dear sweet Georgia.:
“Oh honey, do I have some JUNK for you. After what you have done to us...are you KIDDING me? I will be going through my stuff and finding something really EASY for you to work with!!! You betcha...I am good to go.”
She’s a real peach, huh?
Candy chimes in:
Yep. I'm up for the challenge! Anything to get rid of junk in my basement, eh? Nighty night.
Candy seems a little too kind in her response. We’ve all witnessed her witty ways on the site Do I really want to see what lurks in her basement?! I think she is saying “Mwa hahaha” as we speak! I’m sleeping with one eye open.
This from Amy:
“I’ll see what treasure I can dig up!”
Treasure?! Hmmm….you know the quiet ones are the scariest, right?
“I’m all set with the editor’s challenge project. I found this big metal thing with chippy lead paint. What’s really cool is that it glows slightly when you shut the lights off, kind of a yellowy green sort of illumination. I’m not too sure what it was originally used for but the guy at the funeral home where I bought it said he thinks it was for shipping asbestos in the 1950’s…so it’s vintage. I think it still full too! Once I get a hazardous materials permit I’ll call the trucking company for pick-up. Sue, you should have it in about a week…OK.”
Would we expect any thing less from Jim?
More from Geo:
“Kathy, look what you have done...did you see Jim's plans for Sue? Poor thing!! Remember, you started this!”
Geo is enjoying this way too much!
Kathy regretfully responds:
“I’m so sorry...great way to make friends, right???! I read Jim's email - a little scary - but we know he's kidding , right?? Now I've got to scramble and come up with a great piece of junk for our fearless leader. Good thing she's fearless when it comes to junk!!.”
Too little, too late Kathy!
This is what I was afraid of when Kathy came up with this tomfoolery
idea. I'm sure all contributors will treat me with love and kindness. I guess the
shoe's on the other foot now! Note to contributors: Raccoon, rat, mouse squirrel, and/or
bird droppings, hazardous waste, or anything that glows on its own can not be shipped. It's illegal and I WILL report any offenders!
A personal note to Kathy:
Thanks for such a great idea, Miss Kathy. I only hope I can return the favor real soon.
P.S. All comments made in a good, clean, fun-loving, teasing, kind of fashion!
