THE SECOND SCAVENGER HUNT

So! Yesterday's answers were:

1. Sarah Greenhill
2. 445.3 lbs
3. (you guys had good answers for this one!)
4. Gideon

Fourteen people got all four answers correct. And from those fifteen, the randomly selected winner is....

ERIN!! (though the worst lyric of that song is obviously "today never happened before.")

Congratulations, Erin! You have 24 hours to email me your info.

Now for the next scavenger hunt! These are the every day rules. Please skip if you read them yesterday:

You will have 24 hours, starting from the minute this post goes up, to answer a series of questions. You will post your answers in the comments section of this post. Some of these questions have multiple (perhaps nearly infinite) correct answers, and some do not. You must answer all correctly to have a chance to be the randomly selected winner. There will be one winner each day, and I will announce that winner in the post opening the next round of the contest. If you do not win, you are absolutely free to enter the next few rounds! If you do win, you have 24 hours to email me your mailing information before I pass off to a different winner. And please do not enter again.

To find the answers of the questions, I suggest you try some of the following strategies:

a) look deep inside yourself

b) Google it

c) copy the answers of someone who posted before you

d) ask a muser. Just saying. These guys tend to know things. They're also busy people, so you might be lucky and you might not.

(Some names to try: @gracetopia, @Sagecollins, @sayitwhirly, @althrasher, @_bethanygriffin, @briannaorg, @suzanneyoung, @brittanimae, @libbymartin, @raemariz)

e) ask me. I may take pity on you, especially if you ask me in a funny way.

f) otherwise bribe/cheat/steal. This is a lawless society.

There will be none of that +1 for following or retweeting nonsense, but I would be ever so much obliged if you would consider adding the little book in question to your goodreads shelf, because I am a goodreads whore and sometimes you need little things to make you happy.

--

NOW. For the special rules for today.

THE PRIZE IS:

One copy of INVINCIBLE SUMMER and one CD of INVINCIBLE SUMMER'S PLAYLIST, as well as one signed bookmark.

THE RESTRICTIONS ARE:

U.S. and Canada only once again (sorry guys! There will be an international day).

One entry per customer. No exceptions. Don't make me come down there.

Contest ends at 4:00 PM, April 18th, 2011.

AND YOUR QUESTIONS ARE:

1) When played on piano, what are the first three notes of "Ode to Joy?"

2) What is Hannah Moskowitz's middle name?

3) True or False: In INVINCIBLE SUMMER, Claudia is older than Chase.

4) Explain to me, please, how one dances the Time Warp.



Go go go!

1. E E F
2. Elise
3. False
4. Here's a brief summary. Stomp, hands in the air, hands on your hips, knees together, pelvic thrust, circular pelvic action, hands up, hands on your hips, SHIMMY! Or. Something along those lines.

Zakiya LadyWings said...

1) E E F
2) Elise
3) False; Claudia's younger.
4) To dance the Time Warp, you must moonwalk back and forth, moving your body (slowly) all sorts of ways, as if you are going through a portal.

1. E E F
2. Elise (One of my favorite names, actually.)
3. False. Claudia is younger but often acts much older than her biological age.
4. It's just a JUMP to the left, a STEP to the Right, with your hands on your hips you bring your KNEES in tight, and then you do the pelvic swivel, which can be repeated if you aren't driven insane. Then YOU DO IT ALL AGAIN.

3) False

4) Jump to the left, with hands up, step to the right, with your hands on your hips bring your knees in tight, then the pelvic thrust, swivel your hips, repeat.

1. E E F
2. Elise
3. False
4. Jump to the left with both feet, step to the right three times, hands on hips, bend your knees while keeping your feet apart, pelvic/body thrust, move your hips in a cicular motion, arms up, arms across your body, and repeat!

Deserae McGlothen said...

1. E E F
2. Elise
3. False
4. According to E-how, Wikipedia, and Youtube (you know... all of the RELIABLE sources...)you must do the following:
> A. Listen to the song and follow the steps.
> B. When that FAILS watch Youtube.
> C. When THAT fails...

"Jump to your left and land with both feet next to each other. Remain there for about four beats or so, no matter how anxious you are to get to the thrusting part.

Bounce on the balls of your feet to help keep time--small bobs, not House of Pain jumping. Take a step to the right and bring your feet back together.

Give it your best attitude and put those hands on your soon-to-swivel hips. Next, clench your knees into each other, bending a bit at the waist and if you need to, moving your feet out a bit for balance.

Wait no more: thrust that Elvis pelvis back and forth as vigorously as your chiropractor will let you. Do this a few times, until you are giddy with delight.

Moving counter-clockwise, roll those hips around a couple of times and stretch your arms up way over your head to give the room some jazz hands with sparkle fingers. This will really add a punch to the "insane" part of the song. Feel free to shake your head about as well, you crazy kid."

Oh... you wanted a summary... You know, I'm not very good at paraphrasing--- or cheating--- to be honest with you.

Thanks for this opportunity and good luck on your Time Warping extravaganza!

This was pretty funny to do. Had to google for the first.

1. E E F. (I am wondering if bass clef and treble clef have to work, though. And if I'm using the original form of Ode to Joy or a simplified version. That's piano for you. *nods*)

2. Elise. (Was going to say Barry though... because it's my last pick for everything)

3. False. (I believe she's 11 and then 12)

4. Jump to the left, step to the right, hands on hips, bring knees in tight, and y'know, the pelvic thrust that drives you insane. Lyrics always help.

Also, "Sarah Greenhill" is the lamest porn name ever. If your last name were "GreenMOUND," it would at least be provocative.
