Hot Potato: Melissa Edition
First there was Hot Potato Phil where people fought over the privilege to send something to Phil.
This one is here to focus on the amazing Melissa:
She won the right to this by her very generous bid in the JVMF.
WHAT IS THIS NONSENSE???
It is a chance to have fun by fighting over sending Melissa a gift... and keeping her from having to send herself a gift!
You might not end up sending her a gift, but posting here means you will send SOMEONE a gift. (It also means you'll get a gift, too.)
WHAT DO I DO?
1) Post to this GeekList, saying where you are willing to ship.
(Note: You can limit shipping to only your own country, etc... but if you end up being the last person in the event, you must be willing to ship to Melissa in the US, even if you otherwise were going to limit shipping.)
You can (but don't have to) also include a teaser of what you plan to send. But this is completely optional (and still should NOT give away what you're sending). Or maybe you don't want to give a clue or you don't even know what you're sending. (That's okay too!)
2) Wait for someone to post next. This is the person you will send something to. So, reach out to them and get their address.
3) Ship your gift.
It can be ANYTHING. Gaming-related? Potato-related? Pie-related? Related to your home town? Cat related? Something from the recipient's wish list? All of the above? None of the above? All great options!
4) Report what was sent to you. Come share pictures or just post a note about what was sent to you. If you or the sender prefer not to, you can skip this. But a big part of the fun is seeing what others get.
This event will run until March 14. Why that day?
So many reasons:
1) It is National Potato Chip Day, which seemed quite fitting to the list at hand.
2) It is my anniversary, so I won't forget the ending date.
3) It is pi/pie day. Who doesn't like pi/pie?!
