Scavenger Hunt: 2

Nicole's 2nd Scavenger Hunt.

Please take this with a grain of salt and a sense of humor.

1. souvenir: The other day, I had a tequila shot too many.

2. a fish: And almost broke my favorite fish platter.

3. religious building: So I went to pray to wash away my sins.

4. a fire department: I then went to the Fire department to volunteer and do good deeds. But I got lost and only found this.

5. manhole cover: Frustrated, I yelled at the communications portal. Talk to me!

6. a postcard: I looked for a post card to send to my Mom but only found an envelope.

7. water: I drank a lot of water to get dehydrated so my brain would work again. What was left, I doused on myself.

8. a communication device: I picked up my balackberry to make a phone call but the batteries were dead.

9. Life event: I felt like I was dying. I could read my own obituary.

10. foreign stamp: I looked for a special stamp to write a special letter. But all I found was this.

11. tree: I sat underneath a tree to compose myself.

12. Living Space of a non-human: I felt like I lived in a cage.

13. a street mirror: There were mirrored buildings everywhere and I did not see what I liked.

14. decoration fixed on a house: I went back home and stared at the wreath.

15. Foreign Flag: I wanted to go back home.

16. a fire: I lit an incense for Ganesha and willed the starship to take me back to my planet.

17. Antenna: I made sure that the antenna was hooked up the right way so the star ship could contact me.

18. Phone Booth: I headed towards a phone booth disguised as slot machines.

19. verboten sign: Something told me to be careful and not to go wrong way!

20. Beach: I had already packed my bags to go to the wonderful beaches on my planet.

21. a cityscape: I went to the top of the building and shouted, "Beam me up!"

22. something goofy: And they came disguised as ducks in my backyard.

23. something carved: And as wooden eagles on dead tree.

24. eye: The master then spoke to me and welcomed me with open arms.

25. something rural: At last I was going home to my planet Zulu.

How many shots did you say you had?! : ) You know, I've had a funny feeling all along you were from Zulu....drop in again and see us sometime! Great shots Zulu girl! I don't think its fair for us earth people to have to compete with people from outer space, though. I'm going to go find a slot machine and call Nicole about this!

Well done :D!!!

Mythos: LOL. I had to get creative very fast! And I had to come up with some kind of explanation for the way off topic photos. I needed justification. Ha ha. How pitiful are my stamp and flag photos? I can't even draw a straight line. I was also giggling very hard when I was doing this.

But... it is all your fault. I was almost not going to do it due to missing photos. But I decided to take your advice. It was fun. Thanks!

Nicole: Thanks so much for organizing this! Sorry I ran out of time and had to come up with a far fetched story. I had fun though. When are you putting yours up?

Ballerina Girl said...

Scriber's Web said...

NicoleB said...

I'm not gonna put one up this time. I am unmotivated :)

This wasn't a photo scavenger hunt, it was a shamanic journey to the Underworld! Are you sure it was only tequila?!!! I've been reading Alice in Wonderland and your adventure rivals that: 'For, you see, so many out-of-the-way things had happened lately, that Alice had begun to think that very few things indeed were really impossible.' Very original! I do have a favourite, though: the incense shot.

Melli said...
