Win an Awesome Prize!

Now is your chance to win this wonderful souvenir from Maui. I think it was made in China or Indonesia or Finland or by local kids doing projects at Home Depot but at least it looks Hawaiian and I bought it over there. I promise.

Promises. Promises. Just like a politician.

Anyway. You can win this cute little beach chair for your cell phone or whatever else you want to put there. It looks great on my staircase but it will look even better on your desk or end table!

Here's how we'll play the game:

Read all questions carefully. Put your answers in the comments. A random drawing by Perspective Cat will be held from all the entries with correct answers. You can enter more than once as long as you have different answers in each entry.

This will be easy. The first commenter has to do all the work and you can copy from them (if you think they got it right). I'll up the ante. The first commenter gets 2 entries.

And if nobody submits a correct entry, oh well. Sorry. I get to keep the prize.

Just kidding. After feeding Perspective Cat the remaining fish we smuggled out of Hawaii, he has agreed to draw a winner.

1. What is the name of the island where LOST is filmed and also contains the city of Honolulu?

2. Name a flower starting with an "H" that grows well in Hawaii. Hint: sort of sounds like "biscuits". Extra credit if you spell it right.

3. What island did I visit last week and what island can be seen from the top of the Haleakala volcano most days?

4. In Hawaii, if you're eating Pipi (pee-pee) Pupu (poo-poo), what are you eating? No, you're not eating shit, folks.
  1. chicken sausages
  2. wild pig stew
  3. beef appetizers
  4. whale blubber

5. I recently spotted a _______ near my house:
  1. moose
  2. bobcat
  3. bear
  4. wildebeest

6. The excuse I use for anything that goes wrong for which I take the blame is:
  1. I've lost it from spending too much time on the Interwebs.
  2. My cat is deranged and drove me over the edge.
  3. God spoke to me and told me to do it.
  4. Brain fog.

Yep. That last one's a freebie. I just want to see what you come up with.

Good Luck.

The winner will be announced Friday and as soon as I have your address, I'll send you your prize!

Thanks for playing.

Smileys from are always winners.

You guys are doing great and have great imaginations. I love the LOST answers. I have tonight's episode recorded to watch later. Hubby pooped out and went to bed. He's getting up at 4:30 AM so I don't blame him.

@Scott - Welcome to the craziness. Please come back soon!

@Da Old Man - Thanks. It's back to reality. Damn it.

Jacki said...

Oh, I can do this! I lived in Hawaii as a kid, so let me see if I remember everything.

1. Oahu
2. Hibiscus
3. Lanai
4. Beef
5. Bobcat
6. Your cat

Tracys Ramblings said...

1. That would be Hawaii or one of the islands that make up Hawaii.
2. Hibiscus (I so love those!)
3. You visited Hawaii and you could see Russia
4. D (although I would NOT be eating anything with those names)
5.Since you live in Texas, I'm going to say that you spotted the wild and rare Turducken.
6. D (Brain fog has become my best friend!)

Now, these answers didn't have to be right, right?
I hope they just had to be funny enough to make you giggle or pee your pants a little.

Great answers. Thanks! Time for the judging.

dani c said...

Hmmm, my answers are all of the above ? Does that count ?

"1.00s, 1.50s, 1.75s for the short arms. If you know what I'm talking about, you're probably old, too."

"Boomer brain fog: What was the last, middle, and first part of what you just said to me?"
