Immunity Challenge I

Ok, now that everyone has gotten aquainted, aside from Jeff who seems to have taken a liking to solitude at this point. We will move on to the First Immunity Challenge. Entries are due to me by Friday June 4th, and I will post them over the weekend and the winner of the first challenge will be announced on Tuesady June 8th. You will email me with your subject line being "Immunity Challenge I" You all should have my email address, if you don't email me and ask me for it. (grin)

Once the entries are in, I will post each one of them annonymously and we'll have a voting menu for anyone to vote for the entries. Make sure to post on your blogs for people to go vote, and you cannot say which entry is yours or you are thrown off the Island.

I will be out of town(off the island) tomorrow and Friday until late but I will be trying to check and update when I am off site.

You guys have landed on the Island of Blogtiki, its a quiet island with lots of strange and unusal animals that you have never seen before. Your supplies are limited: Rice, pots to boil and purify water, a couple rusty items like knives to cut things open, some corn meal, and a Keg of Heineken

The only problem is there is no tap for the keg and no ice to keep it cold.

Next up is your flare gun, there is one flare. If you see a plane go over you may use the flare gun to signal the plane. If you signal the right plane then you and one other survivor get off the island for a day to enjoy a real meal and a hot shower.

Lastly each of you have laptops, you don't have an internet connection per say, but you are able to post on your blogs about what is going on - but you have no ability to browse outside of your own site.

The first challenge is to write about what type of strange animals you find, if they are good to eat and what names you have given the animals. How do you catch them? Are they preditors or herbavores? Do they all taste like chicken? Who on the island gets the first kill? Who can cook?

Good thing I'm not a contestant this time around. First thing that popped into my head there was "Why, the women cook. Duh."

I expect that the cooking would be done over an open fire, otherwise known as barbeque, which would mean the MEN cook.

Damn straight the men cook! And I use a real *grill* not some pussy-assed propane POS, so I can do the open-flame thingy. No one's starving while I'm around!

ug - fire - dripping meant - man cook!

Posted by: Rob at June 2, 2004 12:46 PM

mmm... fire... can i play?!

Sorry, the thought of an open fire, the beach, the sound of waves lapping against a shore... the men cooking the meat whilst us girlies make all the side dishes like coconut salad...

Dammit, now i'm hungry. best go get me something good to eat! Anyone wanna lend a hand?

You guys handle the grub..er..food. I have a plan for tapping that keg and keeping it cool.

Where's Jeff? He had better be fetching water...

Posted by: Lynn at June 3, 2004 02:09 AM

I have no idea where jeff is... but i did hear some odd noises in the night... maybe we won't have to vote at all.

Posted by: Lemurgirl at June 3, 2004 06:54 AM

Was he push...I mean, did he fall into the fire already?

Posted by: Victor at June 3, 2004 07:58 AM

On a technical note: Pylorns, could you state a time and zone when entries are due? I'm pretty sure we're all in different time zones, and--basically, I'm just a jerk about such differences. Don't want anyone disqualified because of poorly written rules, you know.

Posted by: Victor at June 3, 2004 08:00 AM

Victor, that's a damned good point. I'm working on English time so it gets very confusing!

Posted by: Lemurgirl at June 3, 2004 08:15 AM

Jeff has made his first official appearance. On my blog, no less! I hope those burns don't hurt too much ;-)

Posted by: Lynn at June 3, 2004 12:21 PM

Good thing I'm not on the island what with me ever so slightly lacking any kind of culinary chromosomes.

Survivors, ready? Good luck!

You know, when a Brit uses "damned" for emphasis it always seems more...emphatic. Must be the accent.

Posted by: Victor at June 3, 2004 04:20 PM

there's nothing wrong with using damned as an emphasis marker.

Personally it's something i think we British are rather good at! Now, any one for cricket?

Posted by: Lemurgirl at June 4, 2004 09:20 AM

Wasn't a criticism, Lemur Girl, just an observation. And I've got to deal with cicadas right now (take a look at the cicada porn on my blog if you don't believe me) and so I'll have to decline your invitation to spend time with more big noisy insects.

Posted by: Victor at June 4, 2004 09:30 AM

Fair enough, I'll let you off then :) and i've seen the cicada porn... dude, that's just messed up!
And if not cricket, how about croquet? i'm sure we could cobble something together using cocunts and driftwood!

Posted by: Lemurgirl at June 4, 2004 12:12 PM

Dude? A subject of the crown just said 'dude'?

I'm saying that to myself, over and over again with a British accent, and it's just not...well, it's just not cricket.

Posted by: Victor at June 4, 2004 12:31 PM

Oh it's perfectly do-able!
Sounds a bit odd at first but one gets used to it. But if it bothers you that much then i'll will try my best not to do it again... i'm nice like that :)
