Scovie and I wanted to invite you to a bromance menage ... for a moment so sweet, you're sure to cry into your Other Half.

 

Can you realize this dreamy, instant holiday classic for me by flipping the magic bit!? ...

 


An ad's perf ...

the amazon-adsystem.com seen at bottom of the following screenshot is having perf issues for a few days, or maybe a week now ...

 

the ad sometimes hang entirely, and the page refresh doesn't flow until the request is completed, i guess ...

 

it's also possible that they are blacklisting my IP because i have a lot of page requests, i suppose - but it's worth a peek ...

 

 

 

othersise, i can probably tune it out with NoScript, but I don't normally have to limit anything for THP (i let the ads show) ...

 


=[ Seasonal Braai Contest with GM ]=

*** IF YOU EVER CAN'T FIND THIS CONTEST - CHECK HOT TOPICS! ***

 

Consider this a placeholder for fire-centric Contest that I'm going to figure out this weekend ...

 

It'll go for a few weeks or whatever ... and might be fun to have the boxes land with winner and loser for New Year's ... MAYBE.

 

Winner gets a ridiculously worthwhile prize box - nothing more, nothing less ...

 

Multiple-choice voting ... top vote-getter gets a sick box ...

 

The theme is S. African braai ... it's a great superset of American BBQ that has nice cultural aspects that will map nicely to the holiday time Stateside ...

 

Entries are encourages to adhere loosely to braai norms ... real wood, at least in part on the braai, a separate potjie-esque side that can be made inside but included on the plate or in a bowl (it's okay if someone else makes this, AS A RULE, but voters will be asked only to 'weigh that' in their voting, is all ;) ...

 

I'm going through my shelves tomorrow and selecting the goodies - it will be the best single box I've ever sent someone, for scale, for sure ...

 

Pics tomorrow ...

 

Now, though ...

 

For a fun twist, the Contest will have a second multiple choice poll!  :twisted:  ...

 

The second poll will be for The Worst entry ... if you can't make the best, try to make the worst and tell a great story ...

 

I mean, make the ultimate in terrible entry and move people to vote some other way ...

 

Winning the second poll, will get a second box ... a box made up of a set of iffy shit from my collection. Iffy like the poll-topping plate, you could say ...

 

 

 

Please note, alcohol should be involved in all cases, unless you're on the wagon, recovering, doing a body building competition, or too young or ill.

Likely another over-priced grill, but check it out for yourselves ...
