Well I can't top the jello mold pictures. But it's my first entry after finally getting Vera.

Scooter at work: 4pts
Copier: 4pts
Water Cooler: 3pts
Office Telephone: 2pts
Yellow Highlighter: --
Whiteout Correction Tape: --
Pink Jesus: Priceless

total: 13pts

Yeah I had to include Pink Jesus as he is just phenomenal. He is like a magic eight ball. You ask him a question and turn him upside down to see the answer. Anyhow onto the pict...



And here is Vera in front of my desk at work. You can see Pink Jesus where he normally stands on my desk awaiting those that seek answers (look above the topcase).

I am astounded by the number of Buddyists who brought their scoots into their offices. How is this even possible? Props!

If I was at my old school I could have done it, but there's no freight elevator in my current building Sad

Ok... I held off on posting this because it is not a good pic...
I work from home, but I am also the Athletics Director at my daughter's school (so I think that counts as work - If not I can post a pic in front of my house)
anyway.... here is my scoot at school - Go Celtics!
4tps

2008 Tangerine Buddy 125 "Scootle"

PostPosted: Thu Jul 17, 2008 9:18 pm    Post subject: Reply with quote

OK. Took a while and there WILL be some technicalities here. I'm again tossing myself like a rag-doll on the mercy of the judges.

I'm a freelancer and work from home and on-site at many different client offices. Seems like many people like the work that I do, but not enough to let me into their building with Scootle.

The ONE company that would - and they have water cooler, copier, adding machine, jello dispenser and lots of staplers - is on the second floor of a building that has been grandfathered into not having to meet ADA requirements. Which means no elevator. I thought about parking across the street and taking a photo from in the office - which now I feel like a dummy because that would have worked perfectly - but I didn't do it.

SO here are shots in front of my house and main place of employment.

+4 for the photo in front of work
+1 for yellow highlighter
+5 for the jello and stapler (it was getting late and the jello had only partly set-up, but it's getting harder by the second)
+4 (this is the mercy part) for the 1930s typewriter AKA my copying machine. I use carbon paper and type stuff longhand.

I tossed in some post-it notes and my vanity plate to soften the judges' demeanor.

If they are nice, I've got 14 points. If not so nice, 10 points for the week.

I await their opinion. I also think KING Lamont is the best person in the world and is doing a fantastic job. Love the ideas and the challenge of it all. Can't wait for tomorrow's assignment.

**Also first time posting from photos hosted elsewhere. Hope this works.

I still think you're a scavenger hunt god.

And I almost grabbed the GREEN hilighter by mistake and remembered how you dinged the orange one. So I knew the typewriter was a stretch.

By the way, the story (STOP YAWNING) behind the typewriter is that I bought it with my first advance check for my first book.

Now I keep it as a reminder that if I don't keep working (and spend each day scooting as I've been doing) I might have to sell all my toys and start working on that typewriter again. Actually I just thought it was awesome.

Found it at a garage sale for $5. Spent $65 to get it tuned up by a typewriter guy. Seriously. Oiled and made sure everything was back to working order. I can actually use it...except the USB port doesn't seem to work and the Wifi signal is really really weak.

I had no class today (woo hoo I have an A and didn't have to go in for the final) So you get pictures of my scooter in our slightly white trash chic backyard as I work from home as well.



Paper shredder, adding machine and stapler in a jello mold



edit, i forgot the 4 original points so its 13 points

Well, this week was insanely busy and I ran out of time for the stapler-jello fiasco. So here's my sadly prop-free contribution.

4 pts= my scoot next to the Purdue Biological Sciences building

5 points, I believe

Me and scoot after a long day at work. Yellow highlighter! And, my "Easy Button". It's a fairly worthless object as nothing in my life has actually gotten "easier".

I've been poised with Scootle running and camera in hand since 7:14AM...and I'm in BOSTON.

That one point is like gold.

Hope we have to get our scooter with the moon so I can be first. Or with a lit up neon sign or a drive-in. Anything that could give me an advantage. I want to win the scooter schwag!

Very Happy

By the way, every time someone posts on this thread and I refresh, my heart jumps because I think week 8 is up.

Then I die a little inside when it's not true.

There are rumored prizes. I just like playing. It's so cool to have a project instead of just pretending that I have to go get something on the scoot.
