This is the very last post for Ari and PJ's Random LJ Scavenger Hunt. *sniffs*

Tomorrow (well later today, really), I'll make another post, available only to Scavenger Hunt Peeps where I'll share a link to the spreadsheet so you can check to see whether you recorded all your days of posts. Then on Tuesday or Wednesday we'll draw the winner.

And at some point, once I've recovered from DH-coma-of-awesome, I'll respond to comments on the poll I posted.

Your last day's Scavenger Hunt assignment is to post Something That Makes You Smile.

See what's lurking behind the cut... )

Here's a link to the form.

For Day 19...

Something that reminds you of someone you love.
Oh, looky, an LJ cut...  )

Today's item to scavenge is...

"If my life were a work of fiction,  ITEM THAT i OWN AND LOVE, LOVE, LOVE  would be consider Out of Character (even though I love it so, so, so very much!).

Satiate your curiosity here... )

Yesterday's antiquated technology is under the cut too. 

And here's the form link.

My phone is being cranky about emailing my photos OR uploading them to photobucket. So I'll have to post my photo later.

Today's item: Post some antiquated technology.

And here's where I officially start scraping the bottom of the barrel. Lots of our stuff is still in long term, sealed up storage, where it will remain until spring.

So I'm recycling.

Today's Task: Random Thing with Something You Made.

Today's item is Random Thing with Something That You Made )

Today's Scavenger Hunt item is quite timely and purely a coincidence. I got an invite to a White Elephant holiday party (no, really, I did!).  Under the cut is a photo of what I'm taking... what will you take?

(In short, a white elephant gift is something you already own that you don't want that you'll be regifting to someone else. Points for tackiness of gift. Mine is boring. You've been warned.) )

Whoops! Almost forgot to post this one! Meep!!!

Your task today is to post something purple OR round. I couldn't decide, so I've posted both.

The something purple is the pincushion lovingly referred to as The Dolores Umbridge Pincushion Chair. The super cool thing about it as the cushion lifts up to reveal a little storage compartment which is mighty handy when you travel with sewing stuffs. Not that any of you would have seen this in Florida. Noooooooo.

The round thing is a Tibetan singing bowl that Mr PJ and I purchased on our honeymoon in Vancouver. It's beautiful and big enough that the singing is nice and deep (and not ear-splitting).

This is my kitchen, upside down with Random Thing hidden somewhere in the picture. First person to find him gets a haiku, limerick, random bit of free verse of his or her choice. 

No fair turning your monitor upside down either.

It is late. And I am tired. So this is short.

Post a photo of Random Thing in front of the door to your office/place of residence/bedroom/bathroom/whatever

Under the cut... excitement awaits )

 In retrospect, the selection for Day Eleven... well, it's rather mean. But, hey, what's a big group scavenger hunt without a wee bit of embarrassment? (*pauses while you all remind me about Science Experiment Day*)

Well, because I am sooooooooooooo benevolent. I went out of my way to make sure I'd have the worst example so that nooooooooo one else had to feel bad. I brushed the Labrador.

Because Day Eleven is 'post your largest dust bunny/fur ball/stack of unfiled papers' day.

Photo under the cut to protect your virtual allergies... )

And here's the link for the sign-in form.

After I post the last photo on the last day, I'll post a link to the spreadsheet so everyone can make sure they logged at least 15 of the scavenger photos.

Random Thing somewhere that you go every day/often

So, one of the great joys of working from home is that, um, I never really have to leave. I go out to teach piano and the occasional social engagement, but well, home sweet home is pretty much where you can find me. And most often I'm in my recliner. So that's where Elvis is. :) I even let him curl up with the fuzzy blanket.  *pets Elvis*

Day nine is your day to post the oldest thing you own.

I was really, really hoping mine would be the piano, but I tracked down the serial number. Alas, the piano is from 1952.

So, the oldest thing I own is debatable, as we do not yet entirely own our house... But it was built in 1900, which easily makes it the oldest thing I (we) own.

This relic at the top of our stairs is from when our house had gas lamps.

I present to you my favorites shoes!!!!! Thanks to [ profile] shiv5468  for pointing me towards Victorian half calf boots when I was shopping for Pansy earlier this year. I'm really not a shoe afficianado. Probably because I'd really rather be barefoot most of the time. But these shoes are my favorite pair I've ever own, eclipsing even the purple Roos I had when I was eight.

The Pansy!Boots are displayed below with the [ profile] ariadne1  dubbed Vera Bradly Death Eater skirt.

For those of you who missed the whole Random Thing, er, thing. No worries. Substitute something else random. Or catch up when you have access to Random Thing again if Random Thing was left at work.

Day Seven is hidden under the cut for a reason...

Today is Random Thing with something from the fridge/kitchen/wherever that might be considered a science experiment (either in a positive, yay my kids are budding biologists way or... well, the other way.)

Elvis with Fridge Experiment, under the cut to spare your stomachs )

 Complete Mod fail. Two days in a row, I've neglected to take this photo while it was daylight. But I am creative. I shall improvise.

Here's a shot of Elvis (My Random Thing) contemplating the view out my window, wishing the neighbor's lights were the lights on the strip in Vegas instead. Poor Elvis.

All right, my dears. Let's see your photos of your Random Thing with the view outside your window. Don't forget to log your photo here.

I'm not sure I have enough superlatives in my vocabulary (and I have a lot, tyvm) for just how excited Ari and I are about Day Five.

I give you... Random Thing in my refrigerator! (Is random, no?)

 And yes, yes, I know better than to store an opened can of food in the refrigerator. It's empty so the cats and/or outside critters aren't all over it. It will leave the house next Tuesday.

I am mightily tired, so I shall make this quick.

Today's thing to scavenge is... your favorite shirt/sweatshirt/pyjamas.

I present to you... my current favorite pair of work clothes pyjama pants. Alas, they are summer pants, so they shall have to go soon. 

Apologies for the horrible photography. Tomorrow I shall return to my normal, only marginally subpar, photography.

It's time for Day Two of Ari and PJ's First Irregularly Occurring Totally Random LJ Scavenger Hunt.  Today's item to scavenge is your favorite beverage in your favorite drinking vessel.

And if you've got more than one, there's no need to limit yourself at all. Personally, I was unable to pick just one.

This golden bit of awesomesauce is Pumking Ale by Southern Tier. Sunday Mr PJ baked his first ever pie (pumpkin), and we consumed both while watching Shaun of the Dead on Halloween. (This is sort of cheating because my real favorite is the Southern Tier Creme Brulee Stout. *dies of awesome at the thought of it* But the Pumking Ale is a very good substitute when the Creme Brulee Stout is not available for purchase). Also it is not my favorite drinking vessel.

BELOW is my favorite drinking vessel with my other favorite beverage, coffee (Seattle's Best Breakfast Blend).

This awesomely Snape-shaped drinking vessel was made by the lovely [ profile] juniperus  and makes me grin even BEFORE I've had coffee every time I use it. I love him. I really do.

All right, my pretties. I eagerly await your Day Two posts! Don't forget to log your post here! And if you missed Day One, no worries. You've got five free skips built in!
