but mostly pee….
ha, we did it, the third challenge is finished. since i won last challenge, i was able to choose my partner for this round and i picked Melissa aka crossroadscca or MissB for the chatty chatters at SBG. i ‘thought’ we were going to rock with fantasy layouts as MissB is one of the best in that area! she even writes these amazing tuts with tips and hints on how certain efffects are achieved. she should be selling them! but before she does, i need to bookmark all hehe
anyway, when Kate announced during the chat that our challenge was to scrap about homophones…homo WHAT??… i think we both, maybe every chatter in the chatroom ROFL fell off her chair. MissB was like, huh, Sandra, WHAT did you pick? i was like, huh, WTF? bwahaha
well, to clarify, homophones are words that sound alike but mean something differently. for example, sea/see, soar/sore, and yes, pea/pee LOL
so our word combination was pretty easy to come up with, but how in the world can you portray pee without showing some actual pee. MissB’s first thought was to get her son into peeing in the bushes, but she was afraid he would flash her. then she bribed her daughter with two Snicker bars to sit (just sit!) on the toilet, but the kiddy porn police would be around looking over her shoulder haha. so finally the dog was googled and it turned out really awesome! MissB even found some water element to alter into a diddly doo stream!
here are our pages, mine first and second MissB:
so the deadline was near. ofcourse i’m still struggling to find out how to resize in Photoshop as i had a much faster tool in XP. anyway, we uploaded back to back in the gallery and i noticed it was a few minutes past the deadline. but only one more team had to upload too, left her and the rest of the teams some love and went to sleep.
the next morning when i opened my inbox, i knew it wasn’t good news when i saw Kate’s email. we were fucking disqualified! i was shocked to say the least. there were three complaints against us, my team and the one after me. Erika got disqualified too, but that was because her partner just didn’t upload. but WHAT THE FUCK? 3 people complained??? and one even threatened to go to the store owner if our entries were allowed??? i was and still am fuming! how dare they, who do they think they are? do they feel so threatened by us (total coincidence, or maybe not, that both teams that were late, already had one point in the contest) that they had to stoop so low and to go complain? how sneaky to go and sit watching the gallery and going through the time stamps? i bet you can tell me exactly how late i was, down to the seconds! do you have a fucking life? i thought this all was just a fun game, while competitive, nonetheless with a focus on the fun weekly chats. and to go and threaten to tell the store owner? don’t you know that this whole contest is set up and organised by one and only Crew member, that Kate does it all on her own, in her own time, with her own money? that she can do whatever she wants, even end the contest? i wouldn’t mind, then i won’t have to pretend i like you.
i have some big hunches who you are. it is not too difficult to count the teams and do the math. and there are more things that point into your direction. and my intuition never failed me before.
you, you all who complained, i’m SO glad you didn’t win. you think you are all that and that you are good. but i’m bigger, better and badder. you’d better be warned! i can be a bitch too. now hear me roar! RAWRRRRRR
okay, that just sounded like a Pekingese. and i am only 5 feet tall.
like Anne with an E says, chatters just DON’T do that to each other. btw, congrats Anne, on winning this round. and thanks so much for the shout out on the MyPicTales blog. me and MissB SO needed some pick-me-upper! xx
and to all who voted for me, thank you so much! there will be a few more challenges to vote for me ;-)
Kate, i’m sorry you’ve been dragged into this. it wasn’t my intention and i’ll be a better girl on time next time. he.
too nice and subtle huh
but eat this, MissB did a better job warning you!
