We’ve been bouncing off the walls with excitement for her. BOUNCING.
So. This is the kind of thing that we at the HSC can’t just let go by without doing something crazy. So Melissa Sarno and I got together. I flew in to New YorkWe Skyped and emailed and Googled and came up with a fabulous way to express our congratulations to Amy while embarrassing ourselves in a HSC kind of way.
As it turns out, Melissa is a sound and video editing genius, so for your viewing pleasure, we present to you our video [And YES! That is Melissa and me singing TOGETHER even though I did not get to fly to New York. She’s brilliant, I tell you!]:
Congratulations, Amy! We’re On Top of the World right there with you. 😀
Anyhoo . . . so much good stuff going on for our friends that Amy and I couldn’t just let it slide. We are holding a Celebration Contest!
And since all good celebrations need ice-cream, we are having an Ice-Cream Eating Celebration Contest! Woo hoo!
So here’s how it works:
Amy and I are going to battle it out to see who can eat the most ice-cream in 20 seconds. Too easy, you say? Our 9-year olds are going to be the ones stuffing the ice-cream in. Still too easy? Another child will hold our hands behind our backs to keep us from cheating.
And you’ll get to see the whole thing on video!! How cool is that?!
BUT, it gets better. There will be PRIZES!!
All you have to do is guess who will win. Me? (uh, yeah). Or Amy?
Everyone who guesses right (on either blog) will be entered into a drawing for your choice of
a) a 10-page critique from BOTH Amy and I,
b) Surprise Package D (gosh I love me a surprise package). Could be a book. Or two. Or a gift card. Or, who knows? Maybe even A BRAND NEW HACKY SACK! Heehee.
Just post your guess in a comment before Sunday, May 12, midnight EDT, and come back next Monday, May 13th, for the ice-cream eating event! Winners will be posted shortly thereafter.
So go on, take a guess! But just know . . . this is me, Toughest, Ice-cream eating-est, Brain-freezing-est contestant around! Just saying.
Perhaps that doesn’t sound impressive to you native speakers of Hindi out there, but to us simple folk who are native English speakers, it is truly an accomplishment. And I feel it’s relevent to mention that the mere act of speaking while trying to kick a little bag full of bean is a talent in and of itself . . . I certainly didn’t attempt it on my video.
