"Wow," is all I can say.
Kate and Lauren did a great job rallying teams Danko Defenders and Holiday Armadillos respectively, with over 100 separate people voting for a total of 122 Fancy Flours cookie cutters. And then there was Aunt Juju who really, really, really wanted the beer mug to win. The beer mug, by the way Aunt Juju, seems an especially appropriate cookie cutter for celebrating the completion of 50,000 written words!
But, in the end the on-line Random Integer Selector chose Amanda's screwdriver as the winning cookie cutter. Amanda is a proud team member of the Holiday Armadillos, meaning Lauren receives one point for having the winning cookie cutter suggested by her teammate AND Lauren gets to select a cookie cutter of her choice, compliments of Highlowaha.
Competition remains stiff, as Kate's Danko Defenders showed up in big numbers yesterday, yielding 55 unique visitors and scoring Kate 2 points for group participation. Lauren was close behind with 45 unique visitors.
In true Lauren and Kate fashion, the race remains neck in neck.
It's a new day and the ante is being upped - just a bit.
What kind of half-time would this be without the quintessential crowd pleaser - THE WAVE?!
Today Team Danko Defenders and Team Holiday Armadillos will create their very own virtual waves. The wave with the greatest number of participants, and therefore lasts the longest, wins 2 points. The wave voted most creative by our panel of judges wins 1 point.
I'll supply the very first word.
Building off of that word, create the most compelling statement for why your captain (Kate or Lauren) reigns supreme. BUT... each team member may only post one word. One word at a time and only one submission per person!
Here's what it might look like if I was fielding a team...
Starting word: The
Person #1: reason
Person #2: Claudia
Person #3: must
Person #4: be
Person #5: crowned
Person #6: winner...
and on and on and on, until 9:00 p.m. CST.
One more time... Create a compelling statement about why your defender should reign supreme. Statements must be written one word at a time. No person may post more than once during the day. In other words... one word per person! Lauren and Kate (or their appointed designee) must place the final punctuation mark on their statement no later than 8:59 p.m. CST.
Ready? On your mark, get set...
