THE CARROTS "LIVE"

Postby poohcarrot » Thu Mar 01, 2012 3:58 am

Starting at 1:30 pm (UK time) on Saturday March 3 will be the awards ceremony for the Writer of 2012 competition. :dance:

Take your seats for this never-before-attempted, spectacular, star-studded event. 8-)

Hecklers welcome, speeches from winning competitors will be given (hopefully) and it will finish with the award of the GOLDEN CARROT to the best story and the revealing of the winner's name. :clap: :clap:

There will be 14 awards, so everyone who wrote a story will receive a coveted Carrot.
Names will only be revealed of those people who have already said which stories they wrote. 8-)

A panel of qualified experts (ie; me) have spent hours (ie; a couple of minutes) going through the stories and have come up with Carrots to be awarded in the following categories (subject to change);

(Two I haven't thought of yet) :roll:
MVP :clap:
Most promising newcomer :clap:
Best supporting voter :clap:
Best worst line from a story :clap:
Most depressingly miserable story that made me want to slash my wrists and stick my head in a gas oven :cry:
Best set designer :clap:
Most patronising git :twisted:
Best story with a 5-letter title written by a projectionist living in Bristol :roll:
Best act of sportsmanship capturing the true essence of the competition :o
The Bronze Carrot :clap:
The Silver Carrot :clap: :clap:
THE GOLDEN CARROT! :clap: :clap: :clap:

Taking it for granted the award is for you then :shock:

I did say the awards were subject to change. :P
Anyhoos, doesn't it always stay with you? Once a projectionist, always a projectionist?
And just because you're not working as a projectionist now doesn't mean you won't again in the future

1:30 UK time is 10:30pm in Japan.
My wife and pekies will be in bed and I'll either be watching the early footy, or waiting for the 3:00 footy to start. :dance:

If nobody turns up (it is a Saturday and I'm sure everyone has much better things to do with their time), I'll just post the awards anyhoos, and people can see them whenever, 8-) at their leisure.

Pooh: 10:30pm in Japan is 11:30pm here. Got it.

mC: its under "Pips Baby". ;) Well you all call me Del anyway.

Bouncy: thats not his lunchbox silly; its his cup, his groin protector, his athletic supporter, his box. :roll:

I am quite sure I wouldn't like to share his sandwiches if he kept them in there for any length of time!

Del, can't Jason add your post count to your new username? Unless you're 'doing a pooh' and trying to stop attaining a pole position?

Regarding the 'lunchbox', in Britain we often refer to such ... bulges ... as packing a lunchbox. The most notable was Lynford Christie in his lycra outfit! :oops:
It's not as bad as referring to a flipflop as a 'g-string'!!! :lol: :lol: :lol:

Oooh! I'm in a good mood today! :dance:

At 1pm (Japan time) someone contacted my school homepage wanting a demo lesson.
At 7pm I chatted to her for 40 minutes, great English ability, just lacking self-confidence.
On Monday she's starting, having 2 x 1 hour lessons a week for 6 weeks. 8-) 8-)
