Funky Friday Funness - Too Many Freakin' Fs.

So like, when trapped in an office underground you pretty much assume that the world outside is super rad. It might be cyclonin' out there but it's all sunshinin' in my mind.

I have two problems. 1.) My segues need work. 2.) My imagination has a fairly common but fairly damaging overactive issues. Instead of dreaming about getting up from my desk, walking outside and wandering through the streets and shops, I've invented some games I would like to play:

Game 1: 500 metre Crowd Dash

A number of competitors are lined up. An official starts the race with a clear loud "GO!"
Competitors dash to the finish line where an official officiates. Only competitors that were not disqualified are eligible for the winnings.

Allowed movement types: Running, sprinting, hopping, jumping, duck + somersault, diving, wall running, hurdling, twirling, dodging.

Disqualifying moves: Causing members of crowd to drop cool refreshing beverages or food.Making little kids cry.Touching any members (or members of members) of crowd.Getting arrested.

Gold Star moves: Seperating Interactions of Wrong, ie, creating a distraction so a chick or a dude can escape from some clown trying to pick them up or running between someone asking for money and their victim.
Subtling barracking for the exact opposite thing a crowd member loves, ie, "Go Essendon", "Enjoy Coke", "This goes with that at Sussans", etc.Pulling out a Toyota freezeframe jump in the midst of dash.

5 gold stars = Massive Massive Belt Buckle of Achievement.

Arenas of Dash:Shopping strips, Straight after concerts or sporting events, lunchtime foodcourts, anywhere where crowds are walking in different directions at different angles and speeds.

Game 2: Biggest Gainer.

Competitors walk around clothing stores trying on clothes. The person who managed to get the most number of clothes on without being told off wins. Note: Disapproving looks from teenage staff do not count as a 'telling off', just existing is enough to get a disapproving look. Side note: I still feel like a teenager, I'm just not emo'd.

Game 3: Reversal Busking.

Competitors put 2 dollars of 20 cent coins in a hat each and then must create songs or dance performances that results in the public removing said coins. The winner is the competitor with the least amount of money in their hat. Winner gets the total monies from both hats.

Any worthy competitors out there? Anyone? Anyone?

Biggest Gainer looks a goer. How would the judging be scored? By volume of garments or number?

If by volume you'd go for the artic outdoors puffy thermal coats.

Otherwise I'm loading up on Bonds undie 6 packs for the win.

Deb? Did you see a cool crowd to run into?

Phil, it's per garmet, but you aren't allowed to buy anything. The clothes have to all be on at the same time.

You're a very strange man.

I imagin you'd be quite good at the first game... you're quite nimble. What, with all your dance and ninja experience.

And you'd be good at the second game too... as you're considerably small :p

Come to think of it, I think you'd kick arse at the third game too. You made these games up just so you could win at something, didnt you?!

I would TOTALLY win at all of those games.

Once I knocked a monk over in a crowd. How many points would be deducted for that?

I'd totally play the third game! And the first one. The second one sounds a bit... not like something I'd do really. But running into crowds is always fun!

Hope you made it home ok! Great to have the opportunity to say goodbye but you will be missed. Now you have to update often.

i used to play a game in the city with my friends called 'city hit and run'. i'll try and explain the rules as simply as i can.
you have 3 lives. each life has 5 energies. so essentially, you have 15 energies if my maths are correct.
walking in the city, you must not bump into anyone. bumping into someone results in the loss of one energy. a bike? 2 wheels = 2 energies. stroller, trolley, wheelchair = 4 wheels = 4 energies. unless its a jogging stroller, then its 3 energies.
you can win back energies by being the first person to start walking when crossing the road. this must be done at a pedestrian crossing and you must always cross with the lights.
also, you can deflect hits with a shopping bag. you arent allowed to ask for a bag when you buy something though, it must be offered to you.
at the end of the day, the person with the most energies left wins.

its as simple as that. feel free to play whenever you like.
