....pop quiz time !




OK, kiddies..."pop quiz" time...

my students would always complain and carry-on...

but you have an incentive...!

I will award a really cool prize...
to the "clever" reader who figures out
"what" the mystery object is...
[no, the prize is not an autographed picture of me...
OR a cat...]

you will have 3 guesses to solve the riddle...
[...just like in the fairy tales...]

clue # 1...if you are good at puzzles..."it is an enigma, wrapped in a conundrum..."

clue #2...the "representation" you see, is "abstract art"...

clue #3...if you are observant, you may have noticed that it
originally appeared on the "footer of my blog...
the same day as a certain post...late in March...
[it is referenced (oh so subtly...)in 2 different posts]

and now, Johnny...tell them what they win !

well...that depends...

if you live in Mudville...or "the sleepy village" nearby...
I will cook, and deliver the meal of your choice...
[and no, I don't expect to join you for dinner...]
lasagna, meatloaf, lentil soup or whatever...

if you live "farther away"...you get "homemade oatmeal cookies"
with nuts and raisins...all organic and really good...
[lasagna doesn't travel too well...]

ties get duplicate prizes...
[ganging-up on me is not nice...so play fair...]

so...take your best guesses....
leave them in a comment to this post...
if you guess wrong on all 3 ...you are allowed 1 "pity guess"

contest will end on 4/13/08
[if no one "gets it"...
then we'll have a "lightning round"...]

so...come on... play with me...
[I feel like Rumplestiltskin...hee, hee...]

BTW...extra bonus prize if you are "visitor # 500"
whether the 500th visit is the winning one or not...

remember kiddies...there can be multiple winners...
if you guess correctly, I will delete your comment and proclaim your victory !

the rest of you "puzzle solvers" out there...
any guesses ?

catsinger said...

queen "Neffa..." you are also a winner... leave me your contact info...[e-mail or your blog site ] I am deleting your winning guess...as well "changing your name to protect the process of the contest"...

congrats...

catsinger said...

Queen Neffa...[or should I say MIZ MINKA ! ...]
[busted HA !]
you taught me well, O "Sleuth of the Nile..."

congrats...you are ALSO # 500 !...but you probably knew that too...

unrelated to the spoils from this feat of "catly" victory... check the "usual spot" [in the GH kitchen]tonight for "more Dibley"

I'll ask SP to place it there for you... plain manilla envelope...cheers...

Cool, a two-fer! ;) My lucky day! :)

And no, I didn't know I was #500, I didn't wait for your page to load completely (dial-up disease, you know) in order to see what the number was.

catsinger said...

...at the risk of being "loquacious"... ; }

perhaps "d-up d" is the reason sitemeter tracked you as a "0 sec." visitor...

enjoy the "Dibley".... I have some deadly malady..
[I'll spare you the details...]
so SP is playing "UPS" to the GH k... enjoy...

Bittersweet??

catsinger said...

Loretta...ah...wrong...
but that is only "strike 1"...
you have more chances, should you wish to use them..

cheer up...it's baseball season !

although...I'm a Giants fan from NY days... : /

OT: you might find this link amusing.

catsinger said...

...you are too kind MM... I went from ROTFL to
" what?..."
[some of the "more descriptive names" brought me back to what some jr high kids used to call me...]

it brought a smile to my illness-plagued self....

I must confess the "OT" confused me at first...
[you know I don't text...and I knew it wasn't "over time"...since you don't "do" sports...] ...until I looked it up... once again proving my "librarian/ general anal-ness"...
[off topic, right ?...not "oblivious twit"...?
or "obnoxious talker" ?... ; D ]
