If you're tuning in for the first time today, there's lots to know. The light bulb is Ray - our HLA friend. He's snarky, but lovable, a little direct, a lot sarcastic, and on a mission to spread his message around the globe... Shine (dammit).
Ray shines. With two feet, he jumps into whatever he is doing. Celebrating National Ice Cream Month? He transforms into StrawberRay. National Friendship Day... CompadRay. Thanksgiving... Rayflower. Writer... HemminRay. Baker... Sugar Ray. Surgeon... Ray's Anatomy. And the list goes on. Don't believe me? Click on the link to GalleRay.
AnyRay, his birthday was earlier this week and in true Ray form, we're still celebrating. Yesterday twenty of you "whacked" your thinking and took a crack at using the picture posted above to create your own name for Ray.
Impressive work. He'd be proud. GuadalupRay; SunRays; Summer VaRayation; MerRayly, MeRayly, MeRayly...; Rayver Rat; Sitting on the Dock of the Ray; Raysin in the Sun; and yes... even Anonymous's snarky suggestion of OveRayted... to name a few.
Today you get to embrace your inner Ray. Be the Ray you love to hate. Wordsmith one paragraph narrating the above picture - Ray style. We want to see your inner snark. Let your sarcasm and twisted sense of humor all hang out.
Start your paragraph off by restating the name you generated for Ray yesterday. None other than Ray himself will be judging which of you has the best overall entry (name + paragraph) and he's impatient. If he has to do the matchmaking, your entry will suffer. Sad but true.
Didn't submit an entry yesterday? Take a crack at both today.
As if we're not having enough fun here, we've thrown prizes into the mix. Complete challenges from yesterday and today and you will automatically earn a patch for your patchwork denim. Have Ray select your entry (name + paragraph) and win a limited edition t-shirt printed with the image and your winning name.
Signing off until tomorrow...
