Contest

It's 8:30pm on Sunday night; why am I at work waiting for a DVD to burn? First one to get the right answer wins a free pineapple.

Um...because DVD's have a very high fire point? It's probably just melting.

Lori said...

So you can bring home the big bucks? Mmmmm,pineapple....I LOVE pineapple!

Brett said...

My guess is peanut butter

Carole said...

It's too windy to kick rocks across the field?

Shannon @ Gabi's World said...

Because the computer is burning the DVD too slow???

Elbog said...

Uh, cause it's due this morning?

Because despite the fact that you know you should be doing something else with your life your sense of responsibility weighs heavily on your shoulders. Just once you'd like to throw the computer across the room, grab Annie and the kids, bundle them into the car and just drive until your found a new life. Another, more "sensible" part of you, that you inwardly despise, tells you this is impractical and in the end you might as well just wait the extra few minutes for it to burn. So you do, but feel like you lost a part of your soul in the process. But the dreams of the long open road never go away...

*cough*

Sorry, er, got carried away there.

I would take a guess, but by the time the Russian postal service finally got the pineapple to me, it wouldn't be any good. Hope it all got done all right.

Terri said...

Archie: Witty :)

Lori: Bringing home lots of pennies...

Brett: It's like you're reading my mind.

Carole: You can get holes in your shoes from doing too much of that.

Shannon: ALL computers are too slow :)

elbog: You just had to go and give the right answer, didn't you? You win the contest; just go buy a pineapple, send me the UPC sticker, ensuring to cut through all the layers of the sticker, and mail it to me in a business envelope with an enclosed self-addressed.... the contest was a hoax.

Kim: Been watch "Easy Rider" again have we? :)

Cristylynn: Don't you just have to slip someone a few rubles to make things go faster? :)

John: Another winner! See my response to elbog to collect your prize.

Terri: I think Kim is pretty picky about letting others share his pineapple...

Elbog said...

Sorry, I guess I got caught up in the greed to be creative. Mmmmmm, pineapple.

Kim Ayres said...

Well if you want to dice the pineapple first, you can stick it on cocktail sticks with small cubes of cheese.

mmmMMMMmmm... 70's retro...

Prawn Cocktail and Black Forest Gateaux anyone?
