10-19 Five Hundred FRIDAY!

Published 19 October 07 01:00 PM | Zach

 Lets get ready to COMMENT!  Yes sir (or madem) we are shooting for the BIG FIVE HUNDRED!

Before we get started, I would like to remind you that the numbers on all the prizes were updated... So, instead of 1-40, its now 1-50 and yes, each prize has a new number! Some of the prizes I have are: $25 gift card to Best Buy, $15 to iTunes, $10 to Blockbuster... Cash prizes ranging from $0.01 to $10... and MANY small prizes. we have 21 out of the 50 slots filled! Those are some GREAT odds! Much better chance at winning money from me than the lotto.

Another note, I have 10 numbers chosen. EIGHT of the numbers will win between 1 and 2 Prize Points (and yes, you can win those more than once) and the other TWO will win a prize pick (and their names will appear on the Home Page of Steeple Media) GOOD LUCK!!

Lets make this even more interesting... I dont think its possible but worth a try. I don't expect this to be done before 5:00 PM EDT.  However, if you finish before 5:00 PM EDT, I will add bonuses! For every hour early you finish, EACH PARTICIPANT will earn 1 Prize Point. Make sure your name appears in the Winners Post if you commented. I may miss a name or two... it happens.

Also, remember the rules... Minimum of 5 words per comment and it must be a sentence.

Count me in this time!

# unruli1 said on October 19, 2007 12:00 PM:

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 12:06 PM:

Good morning/afernoon fellow commentors :)

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 12:07 PM:

We have made it to Five Hundred Friday.  Woo Hoo :)

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 12:09 PM:

I would like to say good luck to everyone.

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 12:10 PM:

Wait, what bechoo?  Oh, nevermind, I thought it said we made it to 500.  Much too much going on at work.  I actually have to....work!

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 12:10 PM:

Five hundred comments by 5:00 p.m. eastern time.  

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 12:11 PM:

Can we do it?  Yes we can.

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 12:11 PM:

Come on guys, I have a lot to do today!

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 12:12 PM:

Or at least give it a good try :)

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 12:12 PM:

There don't seem to be very many of us today.

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 12:13 PM:

I'm posting and its counting them but I can't see them.

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 12:13 PM:

Is it just the 2 of us?

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 12:13 PM:

Good morning scoutmom.  Are you ready for this :)

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 12:14 PM:

I wonder when Fleur and Fluffy will arrive

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 12:15 PM:

They are actually making you work on 500 Friday!

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 12:17 PM:

Humm... slow start today, huh?

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 12:17 PM:

Wonder no more... Fluffy is here!

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 12:17 PM:

I do believe we are all alone :(

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 12:17 PM:

For a little while, anyway!

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 12:18 PM:

Yes, sad to say I do not get the day off.  Unbelievable!

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 12:18 PM:

I tried to refresh the screen and it is taking forever to load.  ummm

# chemicalmouse said on October 19, 2007 12:18 PM:

thought i'd put my comment in.  How's everyone

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 12:19 PM:

This poor computer may explode by the end of this :)

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 12:21 PM:

Glad to see you Fluffy and Chemical :)

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 12:23 PM:

Zach should figure out someway to declare it a holiday so that we can meet his challenge :)

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 12:24 PM:

Like Zach needs more to do. :)

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 12:24 PM:

Hello to everyone - thanks for keeping me company whilst I plow through the data download errors!

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 12:26 PM:

Ooh, exploding computers!  How fun!

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 12:26 PM:

Not sure how we're gonna get to 500 by 5:00...

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 12:27 PM:

Awww.... who am I kidding!

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 12:27 PM:

Let's see... we did 1000 in BJ's...

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 12:27 PM:

But that was more than one day...

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 12:28 PM:

The counter says 32... so I guess this is only 33ish

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 12:29 PM:

Just keep typing, just keep typing...

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 12:29 PM:

We should play a game or something.

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 12:30 PM:

Of course, that'll be hard to do when the comments don't pop up right away!

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 12:30 PM:

The quick, sly fox jumped over the lazy brown dog.

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 12:30 PM:

Yikes!  We have 210 minutes to make 463 more comments!

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 12:31 PM:

Oh! There are the comments!

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 12:31 PM:

It would be easier if it didn't kick me out :(

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 12:31 PM:

Seems to be lagging just a little bit less now.

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 12:32 PM:

My feelings are terribly hurt.

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 12:32 PM:

We gotta do 2.2 comments a minute!

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 12:32 PM:

Then again, maybe not really any faster.  Grrrrr.

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 12:32 PM:

Not really.  It was a sentence that consisted of five words :)

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 12:32 PM:

What game would you like to play?

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 12:33 PM:

The leaves outside my house are starting to change... it's so pretty!

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 12:33 PM:

Hmmmm, I suppose if I'm going to say how many are left, I need to spell it out.

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 12:33 PM:

We could play, I spy.

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 12:33 PM:

Ok, games... I have no idea.  Anyone got any good ones?

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 12:33 PM:

Never again will I make the same mistake...

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 12:34 PM:

That would be way to hard.

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 12:34 PM:

...of typing 452 instead of four hundred and fifty-two.

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 12:34 PM:

Are hyphenated words counted as one or two?

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 12:34 PM:

Ooh!!  I spy something coffee cup!!!

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 12:34 PM:

The comments are posting quicker now. Thank goodness

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 12:35 PM:

In case you're wondering, I'm trying to get in a whole bunch of comments before I leave for lunch.

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 12:35 PM:

I spy something purple pencim!

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 12:35 PM:

How did you know, Fluffy?

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 12:35 PM:

poop. PENCIL!  I spy something... nevermind.

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 12:35 PM:

I was spying my empty coffee cup :)

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 12:36 PM:

Where is Prometheus with one of his "autobots" when you need him?

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 12:36 PM:

My kids get frustrated with me when I play like that... The best was "I spy something duck"

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 12:36 PM:

Although I suppose that would kind of defeat the purpose  of the 500...err...five hundred game, wouldn't it?

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 12:36 PM:

This is going to be very hard if it is the few of us.

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 12:36 PM:

Bechoo... It's a gift.  A very strange gift...

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 12:37 PM:

Where is everyone else today?

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 12:37 PM:

Oh, wait, never mind.  This way there are more points and prizes for us!

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 12:37 PM:

Of course, my own empty cup may have had SOMETHING to do with it.

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 12:37 PM:

Do you guys see a number next to when the comment posted?  

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 12:38 PM:

Prizes!!!  Zach did not tell me what I won...

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 12:38 PM:

Are either of you playing the National Treasure game?

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 12:38 PM:

Or do you have to go out of the post to see it?

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 12:38 PM:

There used to be numbers before, I thought.

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 12:38 PM:

No scoutmom.  I do not see any numbers

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 12:38 PM:

I have played the London part of the game so far.

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 12:39 PM:

I think you have to either go out or look at the top of the page

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 12:39 PM:

Oooh, that one posted right away!  Yea!

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 12:39 PM:

I thought it would be more like the pirate game.

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 12:39 PM:

I'll open another tab to look.

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 12:40 PM:

Bummer, I hate having to scroll all the way back to the top, don't you?

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 12:40 PM:

I thought so too, bechoo.

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 12:40 PM:

The number is eighty-three for now... may be off a little

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 12:40 PM:

Fluffy what did you win on the "would you rather".

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 12:40 PM:

I was very disappointed when it finally started.  :(

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 12:41 PM:

I do hate to scroll.

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 12:41 PM:

It says eighty-eight right now.

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 12:41 PM:

Oops, make that eighty-six... you all are quick!

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 12:41 PM:

I was disappointed too.  I hope the movie is good though

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 12:42 PM:

No No!!!  Ninety-one!  How fun!

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 12:42 PM:

I won't play "Would You Rather".  Too many gross things.

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 12:42 PM:

That may be one I actually would see in theaters instead of waiting for the DVD

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 12:42 PM:

I'm sure the movie will be great!

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 12:42 PM:

Zach won't tell me what my prize is!

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 12:43 PM:

It opens the day after my birthday, so that's where I'll be going to celebrate!

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 12:43 PM:

He said I should get it next week.

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 12:43 PM:

I sat down to have a snack and read the "would you rather".  Needless to say, I didn't have that snack :)

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 12:43 PM:

The prizes are surprises.  Hey, that rhymes!

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 12:43 PM:

It is not nice of him not to tell you.

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 12:44 PM:

I am very excited, though.

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 12:44 PM:

Woo Hoo!! We broke one hundred comments!  Hooray!

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 12:44 PM:

We have made it to 100+

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 12:44 PM:

What??? No food and saliva and... nevermind...

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 12:44 PM:

We might just make 500 by 5:00 the way we're going!

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 12:45 PM:

Now that we made the first one hundred, I think it's safe for me to go to lunch.

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 12:45 PM:

Some surprises are good, others...not so much

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 12:45 PM:

Actually, I don't mind not knowing.  I don't get very many surprises. My husband is no good at them!

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 12:45 PM:

Mine was a fun surprise. Silly, but fun.

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 12:45 PM:

Have an enjoyable lunch scoutmom

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 12:46 PM:

I feel like I'm abandoning you guys!

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 12:46 PM:

But I promise I'll be back!

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 12:46 PM:

Bechoo- Yeah! Like "We're staying for two months!  Surprise!"

or

"It's made of brains! Surprise!"

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 12:47 PM:

What's for lunch, Scoutmom?

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 12:48 PM:

Poo!  FIVE words, Fluffy, FIVE!!!

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 12:48 PM:

I went to peak in and it was full of worms.

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 12:48 PM:

hee hee hee... Guess what I have... it's squishy!

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 12:49 PM:

This five word rule is hard to stick to sometimes.

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 12:49 PM:

At least they did not end up in the washing machine...

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 12:50 PM:

I was doing so good on the five words, too!

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 12:50 PM:

Yeah, I was not real happy.

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 12:50 PM:

Uh oh. Looks like it's getting slow again...

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 12:51 PM:

That would have been terrible.

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 12:51 PM:

Gross stuff is what boy's do, though.  My 6 year old is into burping now.

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 12:52 PM:

I just hope it doesn't kick me out again

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 12:52 PM:

What makes it kind of funny it that he is learning the Hebrew alphabet, so he wants to belch it.  English is funny enough...

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 12:52 PM:

They do love anything gross. :)

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 12:53 PM:

Does it really kick you out?  Strange.

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 12:53 PM:

Hummm we're up to one hundred thirty-two-ish.

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 12:54 PM:

My son still does that just not in Hebrew

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 12:54 PM:

So, what's on TV tonight??

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 12:54 PM:

I wonder where everyone who was here went to.

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 12:55 PM:

Tonight is the original CSI.  

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 12:55 PM:

That is my favorite of all the CSI's

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 12:56 PM:

Humm... I've never gotten into CSI. I tried once, not sure why.  What I've seen is cool...

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 12:56 PM:

They branched out to Miami and something...

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 12:57 PM:

I was glad to see that one of the characters will not be returning though

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 12:57 PM:

Like Law and Order... there's more than one.

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 12:57 PM:

The other branch was New York.

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 12:58 PM:

I miss Friends and ER (when it was good) on Thursdays...

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 12:58 PM:

New York... that's the one!!

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 12:58 PM:

I can't believe how they make so many like the others.

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 12:59 PM:

I think Survivorman may be on tonight... or was it last night...

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 12:59 PM:

Those were two good shows.  

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 01:00 PM:

Yes, the similar shows are probably the reason I have a hard time getting involved.

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 01:00 PM:

I do believe it is on tonight.

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 01:00 PM:

Spinoffs.  That was the word I was looking for. duh

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 01:01 PM:

ER lost it's appeal for me when they killed Romano with the helicopter. Even though I found that incredibly amusing...

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 01:01 PM:

What do you watch on Thursday?

# unilab98 said on October 19, 2007 01:02 PM:

oh no i forgot about this.

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 01:02 PM:

I remember that episode.  I started losing interest when Mark Green died.

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 01:03 PM:

Mainly Grey's Anatomy.  Everything else is filler!

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 01:03 PM:

Thanks for coming by unilab98

# unilab98 said on October 19, 2007 01:03 PM:

and i cant do much cause i am at work.

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 01:04 PM:

OH Mark Green!!!!  That was sad...  I always thought of him as Goose in Top Gun!!!

# unilab98 said on October 19, 2007 01:04 PM:

I only have an hour here and then i will be running around all afternoon.

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 01:04 PM:

Is that as good as last season?  I haven't had a chance to watch

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 01:05 PM:

Why does it seem as though his character always dies?

# unilab98 said on October 19, 2007 01:05 PM:

I am sure it will make 500 by the time i get home

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 01:05 PM:

Another poster! Oh yea!  I hate to leave, but my daughter needs some help with her math.  I'll be back in a little bit!!

# unilab98 said on October 19, 2007 01:05 PM:

I just saw the re-run where mark is in hawaii last week.  I cried.  So sad.  miss him.

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 01:06 PM:

Unilab, you can do alot of damage here in an hour :)

# unilab98 said on October 19, 2007 01:06 PM:

ha ha except I have to do some actual work in this hour.

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 01:06 PM:

See you in a bit Fluffy

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 01:07 PM:

actual work, Oh no.  I'm trying to get Zach to declare it some sort of holiday :)

# unilab98 said on October 19, 2007 01:08 PM:

man my internet is slow today.

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 01:08 PM:

It is slowing down again.

# unilab98 said on October 19, 2007 01:08 PM:

ha ha. yeah i wish bechoo.  that would be awesome

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 01:09 PM:

It is acting very weird today

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 01:10 PM:

Thank goodness it is Friday.

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 01:10 PM:

One more day this week and I would need a nap.

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 01:11 PM:

This will be comment 175 ish

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 01:12 PM:

Is ish a word or does it have to be attached to something?

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 01:14 PM:

Wlappas, Unruli1 where did you go?

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 01:15 PM:

I have got to get one thing done.

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 01:16 PM:

Then I will be back

# unilab98 said on October 19, 2007 01:17 PM:

ha ha ha.  i left for a sec.  ok.  c u later.

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 01:17 PM:

All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 01:18 PM:

Hope to see you soon Unilab

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 01:23 PM:

Ok, back for a minute... Had to teach some proper and improper fractions

# unruli1 said on October 19, 2007 01:24 PM:

Hey guys. I'm here, just have to check in between doing some actual work...

# unruli1 said on October 19, 2007 01:24 PM:

I am very glad it is Friday too.

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 01:24 PM:

It's hard when you know how little you actually use some of this stuff.

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 01:25 PM:

Actual work???  Never heard of it!

# unilab98 said on October 19, 2007 01:25 PM:

And I sing..."All by myself.....don't wanna be all by myself." Dum dum dum dum......

# unilab98 said on October 19, 2007 01:26 PM:

Oh fluffy is back lol.

# unilab98 said on October 19, 2007 01:26 PM:

Oh and unruli too.  So Im not the only one working. lol.

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 01:27 PM:

Today I went to the gym, to the store, came home, made bread, made some Mac N Cheese, made a pasta salad, made brownies, and ate lunch.  Later it'll be Roasted Chicken and Maple Syrup Acorn Squash.

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 01:28 PM:

Oh, the Mac is for tomorrow, and the pasta salad is for Sunday... kinda sounded like a crazy menu there...

# unilab98 said on October 19, 2007 01:28 PM:

Wow, what a busy day already fluffy!

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 01:28 PM:

Are we gonna sing, now?

# unilab98 said on October 19, 2007 01:29 PM:

Ha ha ha.  You're right.  But a yummy menu nonetheless.

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 01:29 PM:

Oh, more fractions. I'll be back in a couple minutes...

# unruli1 said on October 19, 2007 01:30 PM:

Yum, brownies. That sounds good.

# unilab98 said on October 19, 2007 01:30 PM:

Hee hee.  I just thought I was all by myself.  But I hadn't refreshed in a minute.  So missed you all coming back in.

# unilab98 said on October 19, 2007 01:31 PM:

Fractions- what year in school is your kid?  And why is he/she home already?  It's early!

# unruli1 said on October 19, 2007 01:32 PM:

Guess it depends what time zone you are in.

# unruli1 said on October 19, 2007 01:36 PM:

We are over 200 comments now... we should have 500 by 5pm no problem.

# unilab98 said on October 19, 2007 01:36 PM:

What time zone is fluffy?

# unruli1 said on October 19, 2007 01:37 PM:

I don't miss fractions. My son is not quite 3 so a few years before I have to deal with homework...

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 01:37 PM:

EST, We homeschool. She is in 6th.  She is pretty much self-sufficent, but needed a little direction.  We're usually done before now...

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 01:39 PM:

BTW- the brownies look soooooo good.  Actually, they're Spicy Brownies.  They have some ground red pepper in them!

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 01:39 PM:

unruli1-

Is your son in preschool?

# unilab98 said on October 19, 2007 01:40 PM:

Wow that's awesome- homeschooling.  I really wonder what the schools will be like when I have kids.

# unruli1 said on October 19, 2007 01:40 PM:

So are the "are you smarter than a 5th grader" questions things you really learn in 5th grade?

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 01:40 PM:

I know some kids in PRESCHOOL get homework... yikes!

# unilab98 said on October 19, 2007 01:40 PM:

But I don't know if I'd trust myself to know everything that they need to know.

# unruli1 said on October 19, 2007 01:41 PM:

yep, he goes to preschool, does work there but no homework.

# unilab98 said on October 19, 2007 01:41 PM:

Mmmmmm....spicy brownies.  Sounds good to me.

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 01:41 PM:

5th grader?  Pretty much.  Some of them are WAY over the top, though. They're like the questions the teachers tell you the answers to so you'll do good on the test!

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 01:43 PM:

You actually don't have to know alot, the curriculum pretty much guides you along.  Anything I amy not remember, the directions really help!

# unruli1 said on October 19, 2007 01:43 PM:

All this talk of spicy brownies is making me hungry.

# fleur_de_lis said on October 19, 2007 01:44 PM:

Wow! you guys are really pounding away at the comments!

# fleur_de_lis said on October 19, 2007 01:45 PM:

Fluffy, you always have the most delicious plans for supper.

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 01:45 PM:

Brownies, did somebody say brownies.  :)

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 01:45 PM:

Spicy Brownies are actually easy.  Add about 1 teaspoon of ground red pepper to box brownie mix. (Add more if you like)  When they come out of the oven, sprinkle with mini chocolate chips. Wait for them to melt, then spread like icing.  Let cool, cut and EAT!

# fleur_de_lis said on October 19, 2007 01:45 PM:

Hello to you unrule, hello!

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 01:46 PM:

Who gets to lick the bowl?

# fleur_de_lis said on October 19, 2007 01:46 PM:

I've got you beat for supper tonite Fluffy!

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 01:47 PM:

Hi everyone.  I am back.

# fleur_de_lis said on October 19, 2007 01:47 PM:

We are having t-bone steaks with mushrooms, baked potatoes, salad, and lemon meringue pie! MMMMM....

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 01:47 PM:

What is for dinner Fleur?

# unilab98 said on October 19, 2007 01:48 PM:

OH so there is a guidebook for homeschooling???

# fleur_de_lis said on October 19, 2007 01:48 PM:

It is my hubbie's bday today.

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 01:48 PM:

That sounds so very good.

# wlappas said on October 19, 2007 01:48 PM:

Hi I am back also! looks like where almost half way there!

# fleur_de_lis said on October 19, 2007 01:49 PM:

Hi bechoo, slacking off from work again, huh!?

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 01:49 PM:

HAPPY BIRTHDAY to your husband Fleur  :)

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 01:49 PM:

I dunno... Herbed butter Roast chicken, maple glazed acorn squash, steamed Broccoli and Cauliflower and home-made bread...(And spicy brownies... possibly with home-made ice cream)  Should we vote?

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 01:50 PM:

Shhh Fleur don't tell anybody :)

# fleur_de_lis said on October 19, 2007 01:50 PM:

I'm slacking off from housework--there's always tomorrow you know!

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 01:51 PM:

uni-

Guidebook?  Uh... I suppose you could find one.  We just get all the curriculum for the year and do it!

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 01:51 PM:

No vote necessary sounds so good.

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 01:51 PM:

The house will always be dirty

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 01:51 PM:

I suppose it's a cow vs chicken thing.

# fleur_de_lis said on October 19, 2007 01:52 PM:

Well...the homemade bread got me :(

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 01:52 PM:

Its like washing dishes.  You finish and its time to eat again or somebody wants a snack :)

# unruli1 said on October 19, 2007 01:52 PM:

Oh, happy birthday to your hubby Fleur!

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 01:52 PM:

hee hee... I do try!  (is "hee hee" two words?)

# unruli1 said on October 19, 2007 01:53 PM:

Yum, the birthday dinner sounds delicious.

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 01:53 PM:

Uni, here they do have a guidebook of sorts.

# fleur_de_lis said on October 19, 2007 01:53 PM:

Boy it is a beautiful day.

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 01:53 PM:

Let 'em make their own food... and clean up!

# fleur_de_lis said on October 19, 2007 01:53 PM:

Don't you just love fall!

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 01:54 PM:

Happy Birthday Mister Fleur!  And many more!

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 01:54 PM:

All this talk of food is making me hungry :)

# unruli1 said on October 19, 2007 01:54 PM:

Wish I could cook, my hubby would fall over if I made something like that.

# unilab98 said on October 19, 2007 01:54 PM:

Fluffy: oh u get the school system curriculum and then follow it?  I never knew how to start with homeschooling. I have no kids...so not an issue for me now.

# unilab98 said on October 19, 2007 01:54 PM:

Yes, hope you and your hubby enjoy his birthday.  : )

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 01:54 PM:

We're up to two hundred forty-nine... ish!

# unilab98 said on October 19, 2007 01:55 PM:

yeah, I wont be able to see the end of this.

# fleur_de_lis said on October 19, 2007 01:55 PM:

We have been having 2 flocks of wild turkeys walk by our house every day.

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 01:56 PM:

I do love fall.  I am just not ready for as cold as it has already gotten

# unilab98 said on October 19, 2007 01:56 PM:

I have to set out in the next few minutes.

# unilab98 said on October 19, 2007 01:56 PM:

Hopefully, I commented at one of the right spots.  lol.

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 01:57 PM:

Uni- There are many homeschool curriculums to choose from.  You choose what works best for you and your kids.  In NC, we file as a non-public school, follow a schedule (set by the individual) and do annual testing.

# unilab98 said on October 19, 2007 01:57 PM:

It was nice talking to you all.

# unilab98 said on October 19, 2007 01:57 PM:

Fluffy: Where are u in NC????  I am in Carrboro (Chapel Hill)

# fleur_de_lis said on October 19, 2007 01:57 PM:

I will post a picture of them on my blog someday.

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 01:57 PM:

Have a good day Uni

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 01:58 PM:

That would be nice Fleur

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 01:58 PM:

Bye Uni!!!

We have 5 deer in our neighborhood.  They came through our yard a couple weeks ago.  Thankfully we don't have a lot of tasty flowers for them to eat!

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 01:59 PM:

Western side... in the foothills.

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 01:59 PM:

I must grab a snack

# fleur_de_lis said on October 19, 2007 01:59 PM:

They are sometimes only 5 feet away from our living room window.

# unilab98 said on October 19, 2007 02:00 PM:

Coolness fluffy. I want to go out there and see it again sometime.  You guys have a great rest of your day, too.   BYE!!

# fleur_de_lis said on October 19, 2007 02:00 PM:

Bye uni, and bechoo--watch those honeybuns!

# fleur_de_lis said on October 19, 2007 02:01 PM:

Fluff--I bet you really enjoy watching those deer!

# fleur_de_lis said on October 19, 2007 02:02 PM:

Do you live in the country, then?

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 02:02 PM:

Bye-bye Uni!  See ya later!

# fleur_de_lis said on October 19, 2007 02:03 PM:

Deer, hmmmm, ny husband hunts deer every year.

# fleur_de_lis said on October 19, 2007 02:04 PM:

He makes the most delicious venison stew you have ever tasted.

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 02:04 PM:

I am back, with my snack.  Don't let Zach make me yack :)

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 02:04 PM:

Not really the country... there are woods surrounding, but we are in a "subdivision". I put in quotes because we moved from FL.  Houses 10ft away from each other is what I was used to!

# fleur_de_lis said on October 19, 2007 02:04 PM:

We also get a lot of deer jerky and sticks made.

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 02:05 PM:

Ok, now I am getting hungry, too.  Bechoo, what are you eating?

# fleur_de_lis said on October 19, 2007 02:05 PM:

I bet you like that Fluffy. Need that room to roam.

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 02:05 PM:

What? No turkey jerky? Hee hee.

# fleur_de_lis said on October 19, 2007 02:06 PM:

Hey, that was my question!

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 02:06 PM:

Toast and mable brown sugar oatmeal

# fleur_de_lis said on October 19, 2007 02:06 PM:

Hey, give him a chance, turkey season just opened up last Saturday.

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 02:06 PM:

I like Fleur's idea of honeybuns better though

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 02:07 PM:

It amazes me how close they are putting house to each other these days.  ugh

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 02:08 PM:

Wow, guys, we're more than halfway there!  Awesome!

# fleur_de_lis said on October 19, 2007 02:08 PM:

Breakfast bechoo? I suppose you have your sandwich before you go to work?!!!

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 02:09 PM:

Toast and oatmeal... interesting.  No cheese doodles laying around??

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 02:09 PM:

More like breakfast but I like my oatmeal :)

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 02:09 PM:

Boy, I'm glad I was away at lunch, all this talk about food!

# fleur_de_lis said on October 19, 2007 02:09 PM:

Hellloooo Scoutmom! The comments are really rolling in!

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 02:10 PM:

I did actually eat cheetos at breakfast time :)  lol

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 02:10 PM:

Funny thing is, I had to run to WalMart and just bought two bags of jerky to take with camping!

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 02:10 PM:

My husband talks about selling our house and buying something "better".

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 02:10 PM:

I SO missed the Honeybun thing... and I really don't feel like looking for it!

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 02:11 PM:

I keep telling him another one heads to college next year, NO!

# fleur_de_lis said on October 19, 2007 02:11 PM:

Well...I had chocolate cake for lunch sooo....

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 02:11 PM:

Better.  Yep, sounds like a man!!!

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 02:11 PM:

Our lot is only 42' wide - but it's 210' deep!

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 02:12 PM:

Umm chocaolate cake sounds good :)

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 02:12 PM:

I also told him "there is no WAY we could keep this house clean enough to put it on the market!"

# fleur_de_lis said on October 19, 2007 02:12 PM:

Get another job Scoutmom--you can do it!

# fleur_de_lis said on October 19, 2007 02:12 PM:

Well...tell him to get another one....

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 02:12 PM:

So, Scoutmom... what'd you have for lunch?

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 02:13 PM:

I had to always ask "what is BETTER".  Maybe this is why I am no longer married :)  lol

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 02:13 PM:

The campout with the Boy Scouts this weekend is a "Geo-Scare".

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 02:14 PM:

A geocaching event - they expect over 100 people to show up.

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 02:14 PM:

That's not a reason to no longer be married... Someone who can't ANSWER that question, on the other hand...

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 02:14 PM:

We're making Dutch Oven Desserts to serve the people who come.

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 02:14 PM:

So right, Fluffy! So very, very right!

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 02:15 PM:

I think I need to find some food...

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 02:15 PM:

I'm making Cherry Chocolate Surprise.

# fleur_de_lis said on October 19, 2007 02:15 PM:

Will it be haunted somehow?

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 02:15 PM:

Chocolate cake, cherry pie filling, cream cheese - all topped with whipped cream!

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 02:16 PM:

Yes, it will be haunted.  The geoscare, not the cake.

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 02:16 PM:

The camp will be "attacked" at dusk.

# fleur_de_lis said on October 19, 2007 02:16 PM:

That sounds very fun Scoutmom.

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 02:16 PM:

There will be victims and rescuers.

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 02:16 PM:

I am so glad I found food.  All this talk of dessert I shall be signing up for the fit club soon

# hentyfan said on October 19, 2007 02:17 PM:

Hey what number are we at?

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 02:17 PM:

The geocachers will have to go out into the "haunted forest" to find the "thing" that attacked.

# fleur_de_lis said on October 19, 2007 02:17 PM:

Attacked?? by who or what?

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 02:17 PM:

Sounds fun.  I hope you have a great time

# hentyfan said on October 19, 2007 02:17 PM:

It isn't giving me numbers.

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 02:17 PM:

We are at 323 at least.

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 02:18 PM:

Hentyfan - scroll ALL the way back up to the top.

# hentyfan said on October 19, 2007 02:18 PM:

ANyone win a prize yet?

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 02:18 PM:

Oh, no one knows who or what attacked.  That's the fun of it!

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 02:18 PM:

The boys who are the victims will have ghastly wounds.

# fleur_de_lis said on October 19, 2007 02:19 PM:

Hello Hentyfan! Glad to have some help on the comments!

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 02:19 PM:

Another group of boys will demonstrate the first aid skills in saving their lives.

# hentyfan said on October 19, 2007 02:19 PM:

Ok, thanks we see it now Scoutmom!!!

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 02:19 PM:

Those who are left (mostly the older kids) will be hiding in the woods at various waypoints to pounce on the unsuspecting!

# fleur_de_lis said on October 19, 2007 02:20 PM:

Ghastly wounds, sounds better and better!

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 02:20 PM:

I, personally, will be one of those in camp busy making desserts!

# fleur_de_lis said on October 19, 2007 02:20 PM:

I wanna come!!! I like to be scared!

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 02:20 PM:

We have spider webs to string across the darkened trails.

# hentyfan said on October 19, 2007 02:21 PM:

Has anyone ever read the books by G.A. Henty?

# fleur_de_lis said on October 19, 2007 02:21 PM:

It sounds fun AND educational.

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 02:21 PM:

I made a costume for one of my sons (it can double as a monk's robe later) and on the hood I sewed some burlap/screen type fabric to hide is face, but let him see out.

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 02:22 PM:

Am back.  Two frozen dark chocolate chunk cookies and a bottle of water.  THAT'S a snack!

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 02:22 PM:

I was just going to say, it sounds like they will have a good time and learn about the first aid.  What a great way to learn stuff

# fleur_de_lis said on October 19, 2007 02:22 PM:

No hentyfan, but there are plenty of people in the Son of Liberty forum who do.

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 02:22 PM:

I think I might have, hentyfan.  I am familiar with his work.

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 02:23 PM:

Scoutmom... out of curiosity.  Why exactly do you need it to double as a Monk's robe???  : )

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 02:23 PM:

No fair.  Your snack is better than mine. lol

# fleur_de_lis said on October 19, 2007 02:24 PM:

MMMMMmmmmm chocolate. Scoutmom, you have the time to make costumes?

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 02:24 PM:

It will double as a monk's robe for a halloween party!  (it's dark brown and hooded - looks like St. Francis of Assisi)

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 02:24 PM:

Yes, Bechoo.  I know that!!

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 02:25 PM:

The geoscare is also an Emergency Preparedness event.  Dealing with large numbers of serious casualties.

# hentyfan said on October 19, 2007 02:25 PM:

Hi fluffy cow, i met you at jamestowne

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 02:25 PM:

So, the first costume is too much??  Sounds like a scene from The Village!

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 02:25 PM:

I made the costume in less than 2 hours last night.

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 02:25 PM:

I need to learn some time management skills from scoutmom :)

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 02:25 PM:

I LOVE making costumes!

# unruli1 said on October 19, 2007 02:25 PM:

My son is dressing up like a dinosaur.

# unruli1 said on October 19, 2007 02:26 PM:

But I didn't make the costume myself...

# fleur_de_lis said on October 19, 2007 02:26 PM:

My what a small world henty and fluffy.

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 02:26 PM:

hentyfan-  Cool!  When and where to refresh my memory?

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 02:26 PM:

I actually thought the fabric I bought was black - he was supposed to be like the Grim Reaper.

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 02:26 PM:

When I got it home, I found out it was brown.

# unruli1 said on October 19, 2007 02:26 PM:

Are any of you guys dressing up?

# unruli1 said on October 19, 2007 02:27 PM:

I have to come up with something for a costume party but I have no good ideas.

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 02:27 PM:

Fleur-  Jamestown kinda did that.  Met SO many Steeplers!  It was fun!

# fleur_de_lis said on October 19, 2007 02:27 PM:

Anyone with sewing skills has my deep admiration.

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 02:27 PM:

In recent years, my sons have gone as D'Artagnan, Legolas, Aragorn, Gimli, Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Will Turner, etc.

# hentyfan said on October 19, 2007 02:28 PM:

Alas, I only have 4 Henty books

# hentyfan said on October 19, 2007 02:29 PM:

We met at Fort Pochahontas

# fleur_de_lis said on October 19, 2007 02:29 PM:

unruli--Go as a clothesline! Your hubby can be one end and you can be the other--pin some goofy clothes up on your line.

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 02:29 PM:

Hey! This seems to be three hundred sixty-nine!

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 02:30 PM:

Here are some real quick (and easy - if slightly silly) Halloween costume ideas:

www.boscobel.com/.../tip_costumes.shtml

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 02:30 PM:

henty- at the tent or at the dueling?

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 02:30 PM:

That is a cute idea.  

# fleur_de_lis said on October 19, 2007 02:30 PM:

Wow! With everyone on here today, it is going super fast.

# hentyfan said on October 19, 2007 02:31 PM:

Who is Will Turner, is he a story character?

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 02:31 PM:

After checking out that page, click on the link near the bottom for more funny stuff.

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 02:31 PM:

Thanks for the link scoutmom

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 02:31 PM:

Will Turner from Pirates of the Caribbean

# hentyfan said on October 19, 2007 02:31 PM:

We met at the tent with Buswalker.

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 02:32 PM:

It is going really quickly.

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 02:32 PM:

You are quite welcome, bechoo.

# hentyfan said on October 19, 2007 02:32 PM:

Oh, the character portrayed by Orlando Bloom!

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 02:33 PM:

We are at 380 +/- with an hour and a half still to go

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 02:33 PM:

Hurry, type faster!  If we finish in the next 27 minutes, we'll all get an extra point!

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 02:33 PM:

I like the Mastercard ad.  Funny.

Will Turner.  From Pirates of the Carribean.

# fleur_de_lis said on October 19, 2007 02:33 PM:

Scoutmom--those are very good, easy ideas! Good for some laughs.

# hentyfan said on October 19, 2007 02:33 PM:

Orlando also plays Legolas

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 02:33 PM:

Oh, that's right one hour and 27 minutes!!  No problemo!

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 02:34 PM:

No, wait, I was right.  Finish by 4:00 E for an extra point.

# unruli1 said on October 19, 2007 02:34 PM:

I like the clothesline idea! That web page has some good ones too. The Mastercard Ad is great...

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 02:34 PM:

Yes, I've had two different sons play Orlando Bloom characters!

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 02:34 PM:

27 minutes??? Yikes!!!  BTW, I am now posting on two tabs... I guess I should close one.

# hentyfan said on October 19, 2007 02:34 PM:

I never watch Pirates of the Carribean.

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 02:34 PM:

27 minutes I though we had until 5:00 EST

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 02:35 PM:

OK, one tab is now closed.

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 02:35 PM:

I think the Master Card one was my favorite.

# hentyfan said on October 19, 2007 02:36 PM:

We have to finish by four?

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 02:36 PM:

Early finishing gets extra points.

What are points for?

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 02:36 PM:

For each hour we finish before 5:00, everyone who posted gets an extra point.

# unruli1 said on October 19, 2007 02:36 PM:

yeah, I thought 5pm EDT too.

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 02:36 PM:

That's to be determined later by the great Zacharooni,I believe.

# unruli1 said on October 19, 2007 02:36 PM:

Oh cool. The more points the better, since I have none so far.

# hentyfan said on October 19, 2007 02:36 PM:

Yeah, I thought we had until five.

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 02:37 PM:

Such confusion!  I guess I am not the only one who gets distracted reading Zach's instructions!!

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 02:37 PM:

I used the master card idea for a sign when I took my sons to a ball game:

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 02:37 PM:

Three tickets to the game:  $60

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 02:37 PM:

And points are for what???  Yeah, I don't pay attention...

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 02:38 PM:

Three tee shirts, three hot dogs, three sodas:  $82.50

# hentyfan said on October 19, 2007 02:38 PM:

Anyone interested in learning elvish?:)

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 02:38 PM:

Calling in sick to take your sons to their first Cub game at Wrigley Field:  Priceless

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 02:39 PM:

Not sharing with others is elvish... hee hee hee!

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 02:39 PM:

We have until 5:00 for the original prizes.

# hentyfan said on October 19, 2007 02:39 PM:

What kind of prizes are there, anyone know?

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 02:39 PM:

If we finish by 4:00 - extra point each.

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 02:39 PM:

Ooh, ooh!!!  Elvish has left the building!!!

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 02:39 PM:

I think Zach explained about the points once, but I don't think I was paying attention.

# unruli1 said on October 19, 2007 02:40 PM:

Those who have won prizes so far, what did you get?

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 02:40 PM:

The prizes vary - some are very nice, some are kind of silly.

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 02:40 PM:

WHAT ARE THE POINTS FOR?????

# hentyfan said on October 19, 2007 02:40 PM:

Unfortunately, the entries have to be in English

# fleur_de_lis said on October 19, 2007 02:41 PM:

Elvish? You are learning Elvish?

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 02:41 PM:

Please put the glasses on the elvish...

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 02:41 PM:

I got an ice cream cone that shoots out a foam ball.  I can't get it back from my sons!

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 02:41 PM:

I think we should be able to do this easily.

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 02:41 PM:

You ain't nothin' but a Hound dog...

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 02:42 PM:

I don't know Fluffy.  I either wasn't here when he explained it, or I was greatly distracted by things such as work.

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 02:42 PM:

I'm not sure anybody knows what the points are for

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 02:42 PM:

I think the chocolate has kicked in...

# hentyfan said on October 19, 2007 02:42 PM:

Hurry and lets try to finish by four!

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 02:42 PM:

We are well over 400 comments!

# hentyfan said on October 19, 2007 02:42 PM:

How do you know if you have won a prize??

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 02:42 PM:

I am concerned.  If we do to well at this, what will the next challenge be?

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 02:43 PM:

Your hip bones are part of your elvish...

# fleur_de_lis said on October 19, 2007 02:43 PM:

Fluffy, are you okay? You are sounding very silly!

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 02:43 PM:

It doesn't really matter, it just looks cool to see your name on the left side of the blog with points after it!

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 02:43 PM:

It seems as though the chocolate did kick in Fluff

# hentyfan said on October 19, 2007 02:43 PM:

What do you mean challenge, what challenge?!

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 02:43 PM:

Zach will post the winners.

# fleur_de_lis said on October 19, 2007 02:43 PM:

bechoo--I am thinking that he will do this every Friday!

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 02:44 PM:

She'll be fine after the sugar rush wears off ;)

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 02:44 PM:

I am so pathetic... I can't even begin to explain how much I am cracking myself up...

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 02:44 PM:

If your name is posted, you post the number of the mystery bag you want to choose.

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 02:44 PM:

Some bags contain prizes, some only have points.

# fleur_de_lis said on October 19, 2007 02:44 PM:

Or maybe he will be upping the comment numbers every Friday...

# hentyfan said on October 19, 2007 02:44 PM:

Hey Fluffy Cow, have you ever tried the Skinny Cow ice cream bars!!

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 02:44 PM:

Sorry, no offence... the word elvish kind struck me as funny... I'll be better now...

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 02:45 PM:

Uh oh.  Its not posting again :(

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 02:45 PM:

And Fluffy - everyone knows your elvish is what connects your forearm to the upper arm!

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 02:45 PM:

Use a little elvish grease to clean that pan!

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 02:45 PM:

Is this part of Zach's master plan :)

# hentyfan said on October 19, 2007 02:45 PM:

I get the joke Fluffy Cow, you are FUNNY!!

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 02:46 PM:

I suppose next time Zach wants to play puppetmaster, we could not comment...

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 02:46 PM:

We have about 15 minutes and the site doesn't post so no extra prizes.

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 02:46 PM:

Yeah... I know... who am I kidding!

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 02:46 PM:

Uh oh!  The comments have stopped appearing!  Oh NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 02:46 PM:

Just kidding.  I know he wouldn't do that.

# hentyfan said on October 19, 2007 02:47 PM:

Hey, where are my comments going, I just made Three?!

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 02:47 PM:

Anyone know what number we are on??

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 02:47 PM:

It's just lagging horribly!  No fair!

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 02:48 PM:

Only 40 comments to go, guys!!!

# hentyfan said on October 19, 2007 02:48 PM:

No fluffy, your jokes are hilarious!

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 02:48 PM:

We are at LEAST at 458... we can do this and get back to normal!!!

# fleur_de_lis said on October 19, 2007 02:48 PM:

Well gosh darn it, we should get points for trying!

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 02:49 PM:

Chugging... means we are all commenting at once!

# fleur_de_lis said on October 19, 2007 02:49 PM:

Fluffy, not comment? Who are you kidding!

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 02:49 PM:

I wonder what everyone is talking about

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 02:49 PM:

I need to comment about something.

# hentyfan said on October 19, 2007 02:49 PM:

How do you see who has won a prize?

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 02:49 PM:

What can I comment about???

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 02:49 PM:

Dang, this is almost as bad as when we crashed the servers on Gold Rush!

# hentyfan said on October 19, 2007 02:50 PM:

Hey Fluffy Cow, do you like The Lord of the Rings books?

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 02:50 PM:

Wait!  Not comment!  That's...that's....well, it would leave me speechless!

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 02:50 PM:

I love reading what pops up after we can't see the comments!

# unruli1 said on October 19, 2007 02:50 PM:

Down to the wire... who will have made the lucky comments? Very exciting.

# hentyfan said on October 19, 2007 02:51 PM:

My comments are not registering!

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 02:51 PM:

Hurry guys,I have a lot of work left to do!!

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 02:51 PM:

We better get this.  I don't know why... but we BETTER.

# unruli1 said on October 19, 2007 02:51 PM:

Who could not like the Lord of the Rings?

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 02:51 PM:

Twenty five or less to go!  Yes!

# fleur_de_lis said on October 19, 2007 02:52 PM:

Zach--one last barrage of comments for you! I hope you are happy!

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 02:52 PM:

Have not read the LOTR books.

# hentyfan said on October 19, 2007 02:52 PM:

Oh I wish i was a duck, what good luck..

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 02:52 PM:

You know, guys, this is almost guaranteed to add this website to the blocked list at work here by tomorrow!

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 02:52 PM:

We only have about 25 or so to go.

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 02:52 PM:

We better get more time if Zach ups the comment number.

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 02:52 PM:

The suspense is killing me - are we there yet?  

# fleur_de_lis said on October 19, 2007 02:52 PM:

This could be it folks, the end is in sight!

# hentyfan said on October 19, 2007 02:52 PM:

Sitting in the rain getting run over by a train..

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 02:53 PM:

Are we there now?  Please, please, please!

# unruli1 said on October 19, 2007 02:53 PM:

It doesn't seem to refresh right, but it does show up if you make a comment.

# fleur_de_lis said on October 19, 2007 02:53 PM:

Yes, we are commenting fools....

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 02:53 PM:

I CAN'T SEE!!!!  I'M BLIND!!!!! OH NOOOOO!!!!! Where has everybody gone to??

# hentyfan said on October 19, 2007 02:53 PM:

My comments are not registering, Arghhhhhhhh!!

# unruli1 said on October 19, 2007 02:53 PM:

Or maybe not. Oh well.

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 02:53 PM:

The counter has gone up to 489, even if the comments aren't appearing yet.

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 02:53 PM:

Now I can't think of anything to say

# fleur_de_lis said on October 19, 2007 02:54 PM:

What we won't do for points, even if we don't know what they are for!

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 02:54 PM:

I wish I knew what everybody was talking about.

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 02:54 PM:

I need to get chicken in the oven soon.

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 02:54 PM:

Of course, the pressures on and I am at a lose for words

# hentyfan said on October 19, 2007 02:54 PM:

Please, register, i cant stand it!

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 02:54 PM:

WE MADE IT!!! HIP HIP HOORAY!!!!!!!!

# unruli1 said on October 19, 2007 02:55 PM:

I'm a sucker for winning anything, even mysterious points.

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 02:55 PM:

We are still here just typing random stuff

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 02:55 PM:

Oh, there you all are.

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 02:55 PM:

We made it.  It says 499!

# hentyfan said on October 19, 2007 02:55 PM:

And I only got paid a buck!!

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 02:56 PM:

We are just point hogs

# unruli1 said on October 19, 2007 02:56 PM:

We must have done it by now, right?

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 02:56 PM:

Poo. Back to total darkness in commentland.

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 02:56 PM:

This is so incredibly frustrating!  

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 02:56 PM:

It's like little kids who cover their eyes and say they're invisible...

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 02:56 PM:

Did we break it?  Does it need to be five after we reach the goal

# fleur_de_lis said on October 19, 2007 02:56 PM:

bechoo out of comments? Scoutmom not knowing what everyone is talking about? Fluffy blind? What is the world coming to?

# hentyfan said on October 19, 2007 02:56 PM:

Sometimes you.. feel like a nut, sometimes you dont, Hullabalooo!

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 02:57 PM:

OVER 500!!!!!! WE'RE DONE!!!!!

# fleur_de_lis said on October 19, 2007 02:57 PM:

I love the LotR henty.

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 02:57 PM:

Oh, come on!  This is silly!  Update for goodness sakes!

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 02:57 PM:

Congrats to us all.  We have completed our challenge

# hentyfan said on October 19, 2007 02:57 PM:

Are you sure, how do you know?

# hentyfan said on October 19, 2007 02:58 PM:

Really, i love Lotr also!!!

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 02:58 PM:

I can see you all again :)

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 02:58 PM:

I think along with the blog, we broke the counter!

# fleur_de_lis said on October 19, 2007 02:59 PM:

Henty --you got paid for commenting?!! That's funny.

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 02:59 PM:

It's at least 521

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 02:59 PM:

Zach!  Were done!

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 02:59 PM:

It said 499 - so I posted the "we made it" - figuring that would be at least #500.  But then the counter kept saying "499"  so who knows.  We're there now!

# fleur_de_lis said on October 19, 2007 03:00 PM:

Yes, we are done and we are still commenting along...

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 03:00 PM:

We are going to make it to six hundred waiting for the other hundred to show up :)

# hentyfan said on October 19, 2007 03:00 PM:

Yes, I am learning Elvish,Fluffy Cow thinks it is histarical!

# scoutmom said on October 19, 2007 03:00 PM:

It tells you at the top.

Back to complete and total focus on work.

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 03:01 PM:

Knock.  Knock.  Anybody out there

# hentyfan said on October 19, 2007 03:01 PM:

Fluffy blind, what happened, where, why, how?!

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 03:01 PM:

I know you are saying stuff, cause its still counting :)

# hentyfan said on October 19, 2007 03:02 PM:

Just do it already, or I will wither you, foul computer,from mouse to moniter!!!

# fleur_de_lis said on October 19, 2007 03:03 PM:

henty--just a comment she made!

# fleur_de_lis said on October 19, 2007 03:03 PM:

I am here bechoo, but I don't know why!

# hentyfan said on October 19, 2007 03:03 PM:

Mine says 531, but what does it mean?

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 03:04 PM:

I gotta go, everyone... It's been a pleasure!

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 03:04 PM:

BTW- I only thought the WORD elvish was hysterical!

# bechoo said on October 19, 2007 03:04 PM:

I too shall return to work.  What there is to do.  Good Luck to everybody and have a good afternoon/evening.

# hentyfan said on October 19, 2007 03:04 PM:

Enter this, fiendish computer, or the curses of the elves be upon thee!

# fleur_de_lis said on October 19, 2007 03:05 PM:

Bye scoutmom and whoever else has left.

# hentyfan said on October 19, 2007 03:07 PM:

Where, and what is the Winners post?

# hentyfan said on October 19, 2007 03:09 PM:

Hey Fleur, what does your name mean, I think fleur is flower, in french?

# hentyfan said on October 19, 2007 03:10 PM:

I gave thee fair warning ,computer, now know my wrath!!

# hentyfan said on October 19, 2007 03:14 PM:

You were warned, computer,and ye did not heed, so BEWARE!!

# fleur_de_lis said on October 19, 2007 03:15 PM:

Henty--yes fleur means flower in French. The fleur de lis is a symbol associated with the French.

# hentyfan said on October 19, 2007 03:15 PM:

Please, I beseech thee good computer, to submit my ravings and rantings. Per Favore!

# hentyfan said on October 19, 2007 03:16 PM:

My computer must hate me a lot

# fleur_de_lis said on October 19, 2007 03:16 PM:

Uhhh...what are you doing to your computer henty!

# hentyfan said on October 19, 2007 03:16 PM:

Is anyone still here, anyone?

# hentyfan said on October 19, 2007 03:17 PM:

Oh good, you are still here, hooray!!!

# hentyfan said on October 19, 2007 03:18 PM:

Are we the only ones still here?

# fleur_de_lis said on October 19, 2007 03:20 PM:

Yes, I believe we are, but I must say goodbye, too. It was nice chatting with you. Come back again!

# hentyfan said on October 19, 2007 03:22 PM:

I have not hurt it,.. YET.

# hentyfan said on October 19, 2007 03:22 PM:

Okay, see you later, thank you!

# Sandi said on October 19, 2007 03:34 PM:

It's over 500 already? Wow. Do I still get a prize point for commenting? Its before 5pm!

# Knowledgeseeker said on October 19, 2007 03:49 PM:

You get points just for posting?

# Knowledgeseeker said on October 19, 2007 03:50 PM:

I thought you had to be a certain number.

# Zach said on October 19, 2007 05:03 PM:

WOW! Good job everyone! I have to run for now, I will let you know later tonight who won, and what the POINTS are for since no one knows, still!

Good luck!!

# Fluffy Cow said on October 19, 2007 07:02 PM:

Okiee dokiee... I'll be in either tomorrow night or Sunday... don't give away my prize!!!

# hentyfan said on October 19, 2007 08:53 PM:

Your prize.. don't give away mine either.
