2 Million Views -- Photo Winners Selected
This time around, a new method of picking prize recipients was designed.
Outside the Bar & Cafe Brazil, I was waiting before they opened.
Lanna, a bronze skinned beauty with a heart of gold offered to help me.
Handing her a list of big words, I said, "Here's what, we'll do.
You look at the comments on Facebook and the blog and, read them.
And, pick 10 people to receive photos of the bird, based upon what they wrote."
The big words, were things like, dignified, reverent, enthusiastic and, stuff like that.
Use those big words, to describe the writing style of the winners, you selected.
She looked at me and, nervously said, "Mike, I don't speak English that well."
These were words, hardly used by anyone, these days so, I came up with Plan B.
"Go sit over there and read all the comments on my cell-phone."
She could decide, which ones she liked best and, we'd use the big words later.
This was important; my blog doesn't hit 2 million every day, you know.
She selected the 10 people whose comments, she liked best and listed them.
Then, the two of us could practice learning English, together.
A word describing, why they were chosen, would be added to the list of names.
1. Bernice Wittwer: The most reverent comment
2. Shinji Ikari: The most sentimental
3. Michael Lunch Chan: The most passionate
4. Beverly Fish: The most eloquent
5. Theresa Minogue Amlong: The most Inspirational
6. Pcehs Intl Lorena Marzon: The most cheerful
7. Barry Benson: The most sensational
8. Linda Latta: The most nostalgic
9. Terumi Brandon: The most sensible
10. J.R. Sorrow: The most humorous
Special thanks must be given, to some other helpers, assisting last night.
Lanna's big sister and brother-in-law, gave excellent support.
Sister, sort of did technical director things and, kept us moving along.
Yuri, the bar owner controlled lighting and photographed us.
There, I am in my customized tuxedo and, watch Lanna.
She even, blows a kiss to all the lucky contestants.
What a doll !
Those who wish to receive the photo via email, please contact me privately.
And, let me know which way you'd like me to flip the bird.
