Writing Playground Blog Scavenger Hunt
On Monday Angel blogged about playing games and I started thinking about the scavenger hunts we used to have as kids, usually as part of a birthday party. We'd stomp through the neighborhood, pounding on screen doors and looking for an empty Chesterfield cigarette pack or the issue of TV Guide from three weeks prior. I even remember one the DH and I participated in as adults where we had to get a one dollar bill with the same digit three times in a row in the serial number. We also had to get a duck feather from the park downtown and had to count the number of dots that made up the number 9 in the digital clock on a certain bank on Whitesburg Drive.
I love scavenger hunts. Don't you? It's the thrill of the chase and the excitement of searching for obscure items that spurs me on.
I'm putting on a little scavenger hunt today that will not only let one person win a great prize, but will also let us take a little stroll down Writing Playground Memory Lane.
Ready? Here's what you need to find.
1. What happened on June 8, 2006?
2. What Broadway show did Smarty Pants see in March 2006?
3. Who got a new kitten in September 2006?
4. Who posted the very first entry in this blog and what was the date?
5. In January 2006, Angel posted about something that could have derailed the Playfriends' field trip. What was it?
Put on your Sherlock Holmes caps and start searching.
Answer these five questions by searching through the blog archives and mail your answers to the Playground Monitor with the word HUNT in the subject line by midnight (Central Time) tonight (Wednesday). I'll select a winner from all the correct entries.
Wanna know what the prize is?
It's an autographed copy of THRILL ME TO DEATH by Roxanne St. Claire, who did a fabu interview for us this month.
Meanwhile, what are you reading now?
P.S. Yesterday's prize-a-day giveaway winner from yesterday is Minna! Please email Kimberly to make arrangements for your prize.
