The first five people to respond to this post will get something made by me. It will be about or tailored to those 5 who respond first.

This offer does have some restrictions and limitations:

* I make no guarantees that you will like what I make.
* What I create will be just for you.
* It'll be done this year.
* You have no clue what it's going to be. It may be a mix tape. It may be fic, or a poem. I may draw or paint something. I might bake you something and mail it to you. Who knows? Not you, that's for sure!
* I reserve the right to do something extremely strange (Hi, have you met me? :D)

The catch? Oh, the catch is that you have to put this in your journal as well, if you expect me to do something for you!

I like the idea of something extremely strange!
One caveat: none of them funny brownies. ;-P

Re: I'm game...
the only funny thing I put in my brownies is - well -- malt. I guess that's a little funny.

Re: malt
This is just a tad weird. You mentioned malt which reminded me that I haven't had malted milk balls since ... forever. I even began wondering if anyone still makes them. Saturday night, I saw someone eating malted milk balls out of one of those Whoppers cartoons. What are the chances?

I don't know if I made it clear but I wouldn't mind be gifted with something strange and startling. Not brownies though please. I love brownies but I don't think they love me anymore. I think a lot of brownie mixes or commercially-produced brownies must have peanut products in them.

BTW, when I used to make brownies for work, I used cold coffee instead of water and topped it off with a bit of Kahlua. Never used malt, though I like it.

Re: malt
I live malted milk balls - I think the onlyones still on the market are Whoppers.

I don't know about the peanut thing - I've never used mixes. But then again I haven't made brownies in a few years.

I don't know when I'm gonna do this. I kinda want to get the 12 for 12 done first. Or maybe not... I don't know. Sigh*

Re: malt
I haven't seen Whoppers in years. Where do you get them? I'll have to go get some!

All I know is that I developed a legume problem a couple of decades ago -- I have toruble with peanuts, which are a legume, along with most beans. They make me sick. On the other hand, lentils, chick peas and most tree nuts cause no problems. Since I used to be able to eat brownies and have troubles with them recently, I've guessed that mixes may have traces of peanuts in them. Probably not traces of lima beans.

Before you ask, I have no trouble with other forms of chocolate --even in sservings larger than "the average serving". So it's not choclate, thank God!

Re making things, did you see the ep of Friends when Chandler and Rachel had promised to make each other their gifts for valentines?

Re: malt
you can get Whoppers at Happy Harry's.

Could it be soy that is giving you problems - I know a lot of mixes have Soy in them.

I don't rember that ep - but that dosn't mean I didn't see it, just that I can't bring it to mind just now.

Re: malt
Thanks for info on Whoppers.

In the Friends ep, as I said they agreed to make each other gifts. as it turns out both of them have forgotten so they are both trying to make things last minute. Joey suggests to Chandler that he cut out the crotch of a pair of Rachel's undies. Chandler answers that he's supposed to be making a gift for R, not for himself. He bends a coat hanger and tries to hang something from it, then remembers that he has an old mix tape someone gave him. He gives it to R who is suitably impressed -- until the voice-over of the previous girl friend sounds from the tape.

Anyway, if you get stumped you might want to stick to bending coat hangers for your strange and startling gift projects.

Since you only have 3 people... if this little game is still open for participants, I wouldn't mind getting a strange gift! Strange gifts are the best kind! :D

P.S. Whoppers aren't the only malted milk balls on the market... I have seen other malted milk balls at candy shops... and, Gordman's sells bags of them.. They aren't Whoppers because they are bigger and not as perfectly round as Whoppers...

sure it's still open - but I got to say I haven't even started on them yet. LOL

Oct. 7th, 2009 01:26 am (UTC)
LOL!

That's ok! That just means it will be a surprise when you finally do send it... (unless it's something you are going to send in the mail... because you asking for my mailing address will kind of give away the surprise! lol)

Oct. 7th, 2009 11:11 am (UTC)
I may need an address in the end - I don't know what I'm doing yet.

Oct. 8th, 2009 06:47 am (UTC)
Just let me know... As long as you promise not to stalk me, I will give you my address! =P

I'm too lazy to stalk anyone - and mostly people on LJ don't live anywhere near me.
klowndogg
Oct. 9th, 2009 02:50 am (UTC)
lol!

I wouldn't mind being stalked if you're a cute girl... Otherwise, I'll pass! LOL!

Nobody lives near me!

Well... one person does... but she was my friend in real life before on LJ... so, she doesn't count!
bodgei
Oct. 9th, 2009 11:15 am (UTC)
I'm cuter than some - not as cute as others LOL

Well a few people on my f'list live near me - some of them I knew before l/j though...
klowndogg
Oct. 9th, 2009 11:37 am (UTC)
I scanned some of your entries and I see no pics of you... I want photographic proof of this cuteness you speak of! =P

I think I have one person on my list who lives near me... My ex-gf tried to add me... but, she is my EX-gf for a reason! lol
bodgei
Oct. 10th, 2009 01:11 am (UTC)
yeah I don' have any pics of me in my l/j - in fact I don't know if I have a pic taken of me in the past few years.

yeah I don't think I'd want my exs freinding me. LOL
klowndogg
Oct. 10th, 2009 05:43 am (UTC)
Then I think it's about time you have a pic taken and post it in your LJ! =P In the meantime, a verbal description will do... What do ya look like? :D

My ex was cyberstalking me for a while... Anything I did or said online resulted in her sending me text messages asking me about it... We broke up about a year and a half ago and she still comments on who i talk to and stuff! I have pretty much blocked her on every site I am on just so I can have a little peace and quiet!

well I'm abotu 5'7 or 8' (don't ask all the dr's have me at differnt hights) I'm a little heavy - but not in an unfit way - I work in a werehouse so I life and cary all day - so it's more in a "lifting carrying" way. My dad is part Mohawk so I have "strong" facal features - big nose, big eyes, big mouth high pointy cheekbones, but I have white (almost gothlike) skin. I used to keep my hair down to my but, but now have it cut at my shoulders. My dad looks a lot like Billy Two-Rivers, but with lighter skin. His mom was irish.

That seems realy odd about the ex.

What color is your hair? Eyes?

My ex IS odd! That's why she's my ex! lol

Hair is dark - although I keep it died. eyes are gray.

Exes can be odd.

What color do you dye it?

And, what does your username mean?

It depends on my mood.

Bodge is what everyone calls me.

Is yours for the motercycle?
klowndogg
Oct. 12th, 2009 11:04 am (UTC)
What color is it now?

Why do they call you that? What does it mean?

My name came from a song... I was in need of a new username and I was sitting here listening to a CD... in one part of the CD they said "Clown dog" and I liked the sound of that... To avoid running into other people using the same name, I chose to spell it all funky and KlownDogg was born! lol

well it's a light brown with like 4 inch long dark brown (with gray) roots.

Bodge is a hastly made mistake - Bodgers were people who travil arond and fix furnture.

that's cool.

Oct. 13th, 2009 10:36 am (UTC)
Brown and brown? I was hoping you were going to say something cool like blue or green or purple... or rainbow striped! lol

If a bodge is a hastily made mistake, why do they call you that?

My boss would freak - although I'm going to die it almost Black (the color it would be natraly) and then do a dark Blue underneath around Christmas.

It's sort of Ironic - they spent a long time trying to have me...
