¡Sombreros Candidas!

August 22, 2011

3/5 are still participating in the Sombrero Challenge.

Here’s Erik doing some extra credit off site. I think he’s forgotten where the somb ends and he begins.

Lisa’s crashing a meeting with some VIPs. They don’t respect her.

And here I am blogging about this trying and ridiculous experience. I really miss headbands.

Elyse’s penalty will be held at the end of this week and, PLEASE BELIEVE, I will be video taping! Poor Elyse.

Another one bites the dust.

“I let my friend wear it for her birthday and I forgot to get it back.”

With something so precious? Dismay.

And then there were three.

The challenge has claimed its first victim.

Yesterday afternoon, Elyse was struck by an abrupt gust of wind, knocking her somb off her head and onto the ground. Although she will endure the harsh penalties of being the first out, she is quite happy it’s over. Mother Nature provided the help Elyse needed to get out of this.

Now, the final 4 are compiling all of our (and your) ideas to come up with the best plan of attack. Each person’s punishment will be unique and unexpected. Stay tuned for photos.

The party’s not over – not even close. My four amigos and I are still with sombrero. It has become a vertical extension of ourselves at this point.

The challenge has been just that, challenging. We have experienced questionable glares, an abundance of inquiries from other coworkers, and the periodic itchy scalp. Personally, I have developed a fear of wind. The whole thing is rather annoying, but not bothersome enough to surrender.

Unfortunately, we still don’t even know what we’re competing for. Sure, the title of “Speedy Gonzales” is enticing, but pride isn’t everything – money and gifts are everything! You guys have come up with some awesome ideas thus far. Many circulating rewards involve margaritas and guac – excellente, me gusta.

Now, let’s determine punishments. What should the loser have to endure when they finally meet defeat? Leave your ideas in the comments below! Ariba!

Zazzle’s Friday Muy Caliente!

July 28, 2009

This past Friday was the first Friday Caliente at Zazzle. And just what is Friday Caliente? Why, it’s a hot sauce tasting event for anyone brave stupid enough to subject their taste buds to some torture!

We lined up a series of fire ranging from fairly mild all the way up to what essentially can only be described as pouring gasoline down your throat then swallowing a lit match.

Ok, so I LOVE spicy food. And I can handle my heat with the best of them. As a matter of fact, like a few others at this event, I was able to eat my way through all the store bought sauces with only minor wounds. However, when Eric brought out his homemade bottle of…well…pure evil…things started to happen.

He calls it formula W263. We call it Devil’s Sweat…and that’s pretty much the only name I can post on this family friendly blog :-)

Best line from an LAX security guard…

April 8, 2009

Just a fun little Zazzle shirt story from my vacation…

So I’m wearing my “+5 Shirt of Invisibility” t-shirt and going through security at LAX.

Security guard: +5 shirt of invisibility, huh?

Me: Yeah. You can’t see me, can you?

Security guard: Yes I can. I’m wearing my +10 Goggles of True Seeing.

Dang. Foiled by a true professional!

Here is the shirt:
