So I had a LOT of fun, won the peep noshing contest ($10 iTunes card!) and got all three of my bean bags in the bucket, netting me a nice little bag of candy... My costume didn't win though, I got beat by an AWESOME homemade granny costume. Totally glad the little girl won, she looked perfect.
Ok: peep noshing (marshmallow peeps Gracie, no fainting!). They had this rope tied to the celing, which was attached to a loop of bungee cord. You had to put the loop of bungee around your head and under your nose, and then stretch it forward to where a tasty little peep awaited you, hanging from a string.
Everyone else keep tilting their head back to get the peep and the bungee cord would go FWAP up into the celing. I watched em do it and figured out that you have to get so worked up that you keep your head down and just use brute strength to pull farther.
By my turn, I was frothing at the mouth a little, grabbed that bungee, and started for the peep...almost got it...
AND THE GUY GRABBED THE STRING AND HELD IT WHERE HE THOUGHT I COULDN'T REACH IT!
I let out a feral roar and charged forward, holding the bungee with my nose, tore into the peep and bit it in half, then I bit the string and sucked it into my mouth till the other half of the peep was inside....nummy.
I got some funny looks afterwards from the girls, bows and groveling from the guys, but hey, you do what you have to!
The bean bag thing was easy, I play boche ball and cornhole, so I am used to putting things where I want them.
Found out that the 28th was the DEADLINE for the essay, so I won't know for a while yet whether I won or not....grrr *foams a little*
Pics of my Ren fest costume coming up...just need to get them off the camera.
Oh, and I have switched to Firefox now, thanks for the advice Bethany, you are right, I will never go back to IE again!
