Vive l'absurdite by lily-fox Vive l'absurdite by lily-fox
I participated in this year's GISHWHES (the Greatest International Scavenger Hunt the World Has Ever Seen), one of the many brainchildren of Misha Collins, and it was... it was a total wreck, but more fun than I've had in a long, long time. It was a fucking ball.

Anyway, one of the items was a drawing of Miss Jean Louis (Misha Collins' handler) riding a school bus like a horse as it flies into a volcano. This was my contribution, and it turned out pretty good! Photos of Miss Louis are incredibly hard to find, but I think I found a nice one. She just looks like a weird bird, but I would accept nothing less from the woman who has to babysit Misha Collins.

GISHWHES 2012 is dead! Long live GISHWHES!

I think my school's band did this. A friend had to leave our irregularly scheduled late night nonsense to take part. We kept making her say GISHWES while she was looking for her shoes. Haha. But now that I know this was Misha Collins related, my one regret is not tagging along somehow. Happy it was fun though

Ah, I don't think our entry was as good as yours for this one, I'm jealous. :D
May the best team win.

Ten bucks says it's that team that got the youth symphony to play "Carry On My Wayward Son" in that gorgeous church.

Yes! That was amazing, I tried to get that one, but to no avail.
I think my team got some of the 100+ point ones, but I can't be sure until the results are released.

My team was out of this friggin' WORLD, I gotta say. My coworker jumped out of a plane for me, and my teammates got things like the pumpkin catapult, our team on a news segment, a girl sitting lotus with live snakes... I don't expect to win by any means, but if we DO, I won't be shocked out of my socks. :D We really went for it!

That's so awesome! I'm gonna be an absolute fangirl (which I don't think I've done before for you, but I dunno) and say that I adore you. Like, a LOT. I saw your art for Catapult years back, and have been keeping up with what you post since, and when I saw that you were participating in GISHWHES, I almost died. So, you're awesome. And that's pretty much it. :D

(By the way, I was Team Salt&BurnLovesInappropriate)

Wait, so when they combined teams, did they always say Suchandsuch Loves Whoever? Because I saw a lot of ___ Loves ___, and it is super cute. :D Did you have a millions kinds of fun? Was it a trainwreck? Tell me all about it!

And JEEZ, GAWR. ^u^ Thank you. Gosh, you came from WAY back! It's some awesome when I meet people in different fandoms. Like, Fancy meeting you here!

I was kinda wondering about that as well, 'cause I saw a lot of the 'loves' teams, too. *shrugs* Not entirely sure, 'cause some of the names I saw that looked like combined teams didn't use 'loves'.
IT WAS AMAZING. I never want to touch popcorn again, but AMAZING. I knew a couple of the people on my team going into it, but the only person I live near is my best friend, Bridgette, so we did as much as we could together. Let it be known, that girl is dedicated. She did the bejeweled bosom. I was impressed, lol. What else? I made a kilt of cucumbers, which, ew. And the Barbie thing! IT REEKED SO BAD. A bunch of other stuff, too, but those were the most memorable. What about you? Tell me your stories, oh great one. ^^

You've kinda gone into a whole bunch of fandoms I'm in, so every time I see something new from you, like when I saw the Sherlock stuff, I squeal and tell everyone. :D

Ha! Your friend is a brave woman. One of my teammates bejeweled her boobs, very tastefully, too. My coworker Sarah volunteered to jump out of an airplane for me! That was my favorite thing we did, because it was impressive, but mostly because it really showed me how much my coworkers love me. I can thank GISHWHES for making me realize I have such good friends.

What else, gosh... I knit a 16-foot scarf in two days, found a couple four-leaf clovers to stick through my friends' noses, sourced a stormtrooper uniform for my friend Julie to wear... Our team was fuckin' PHENOMENAL. We got some crazy shit done, like they found the pumpkin catapult, found the paper in Wuhan, China, sat lotus amid live snakes, put their heads through walls next to stuffed moose, got on the news for jogging in pumpkin shoes... I think my favorite thing from a teammate was Claire's popcorn wig. It was just so gorgeous, and she matched her makeup to the cheese puffs!

I don't expect to win -- some teams did insane shit, and so beautifully, too -- but I wouldn't be shocked out of my socks if we did. :) I wish we could all win, because that was just too much fun. I was pretty stressed at first, and then it was like a crazy party. I can't wait for next year!

I know what you mean, I don't know how we did, since there were so many other awesome teams, but I really hope we win. I saw those photos on Tumblr, I didn't realize it was your team, that's so cool! :D I'd send you some of the photos of our team, but I've got class, lol. Seriously, though, I love the cheesepuff wig. My popcorn wig was ridiculously lame, and my hands smelled like butter for the rest of the week. XD [link]

I :heart: this.
As a school bus driver of 6+ years (will be quitting for a OTR tractor trailer driving job on November 26th of this year) - I can't express in the right words just how awesome and positively clever this picture is!

As a wild, short-black-haired school bus driver - who is a bit of a daredevil, madcap myself - I SERIOUSLY adore this picture! It's so ironic and uncanny that I LOVE IT!

Anyway, I love your artwork of Miss Jean Louis! I'm glad to hear that GISHWHES was fun even if it DID turn out to be a 'total wreck.'

I love the Dr. Strangelove reference. This is a great take on such a classic piece of imagery.

Okay, I saw that, but it was YEARS ago... do you mean the scene with the cowboy riding the bomb? I hadn't even thought about that, but it's probably so ingrained in our collective memories, right?

Yup, Slim Pickens riding the bomb down to the USSR. [link]

I like that you were not even thinking about it. Just the collective subconscious at work.
