Scavenger Hunt Challenge: February

Jenn started these unique scavenger hunts in December, and I played along (see my recap here.)  I enjoyed it because, for the most part, it was spreading good cheer, positivity, and happiness.  I'm a supporter of those causes.  But, January rolled around, and I failed miserably at the scavenger hunt challenge.  But......I'm back.  So, why don't you join me for February?  Really, there aren't any rules.  Just do the things however you interpret or tweak them to work for you.  The actions don't have to happen on the actual day listed. Then, post at the end of the month and tell all of us about doing them thangs.



one. february fourth. thank a mailman day. take some treats to the folks at your local post office or shipping store.

two. february eighth. kite flying day. go fly a kite. sounds simple enough... but the WIND...

three. february ninth. national pizza day. treat a friend to some pizza. and not the cheap shit. if there's a gino's east, say, in your neck of the woods... it's national pizza day, for crying out loud. PIZZA, a gift from the gods, yall. YUMMY YUMMY GOODNESS.

four. february eleventh. make a friend day. this sounds simple enough, too, right? for geeks like me, it's really, really not.

five. february fourteenth. ferris wheel day. go ride a ferris wheel. this, too, sounds simple enough. except if you're scared of heights, then maybe not so much. show of hands... you can't see but both mine were raised pretty high just then.

six. february fifteenth. singles awareness day. all the single ladies... and laddies. so this day started as sort of a joke, but... maybe you've got a single friend who's having a rough go of it lately. take time out of your day to do something to let that person know how much he or she is loved and needed.

seven. february sixteenth. do a grouch a favor day. one could argue that this task could be tied to the previous one... NO. i don't care what you do or how you do it... but find the grouchiest soul you know and put a little light in that person's world.

  2. I so love this.
    I have a single friend that I just thought I wanted to do something for for V-day.
    I sooooo need to do something nice for my postman. He's the biggest jerk - but maybe if I start doing something nice, it'll soften him up

    1. he's probably the biggest jerk because of cuts in workforce and an increase in duties. our mail used to get here at about eleven a.m. now it gets here around six p.m., and i'm guessing that's because routes are longer. days are longer. less quality time with friends and family.

      or he could just be a jerk. either way... i've taken treats to the post office before, and the folks always seem to appreciate it.

  3. gosh, i can't even make a friend the other 364 days, no way i could on feb 11 lol. i wouldn't go on a ferris wheel either. last one i went on was in disneyworld and it was one that you could shake or whatever and i seriously spent the entire time crying and KC was like wtf. have fun getting all these things done!

    1. you don't have to do the thing on the actual day... i neglected to include that in the post, which i will remedy on my end. it's nice if you can get it done on that day, but you've got the whole month to knock these out.

  4. Do a grouch a favour day! I love it! This sounds like a really fun thing to take part in, although it's made me realise I have no idea how I'd even go about flying a kite. Where would I even get hold of a kite? It makes me sad that I don't know that.

  5. This sounds like a great way to be a little more positive in our negative world right now! I'm not scared of heights, but I honestly don't know where a Ferris Wheel would be in Houston, except maybe in one of those sketch carnivals.

I love comments, and I enjoy our interactions. I respond via email, but if you're a "no reply blogger", I can't. Don't think I'm ignoring you!
