Welcome to the first edition of Quiet in the Stacks Pictionary!

Brought to you by Burt's Bees!

Okay, here goes. I have a word or phrase in mind. I'll post a picture of my drawing each time I add something new. Guess as many times as you want.

"Aaaaaand tell the nice people what they'll win, Liz!"

Darn it, I forgot about prizes. So there aren't any. But the satisfaction of guessing correctly is a reward that tropical vacations and thousands of dollars can't beat!

You're convinced, aren't you? I can tell. Okay, I'll post something special for whoever guesses correctly, naming him/her the Master of the Universe.

And now, a word from our other sponsor:

"Try not to guess anything stupid, okay? And watch out for
Vernicious... she's good."

First picture:


And another word from our sponsor:

"I'm not moving until you people stop
saying butt crack."

Good job, Suzy ! You are on your way to being a Master of the Universe! The first word is ROAD.

Picture 3:


The correct answer is: ROAD RAGE. That's me, on the right. (you didn't know that I'm bald and have unfortunate sticky-outie ears? but yes.)

Frema will be proclaimed the Master of the Universe tomorrow, and in the meantime I'm going to think up a harder word. Then you can challenge Frema's title. Mwahaha!

Butt crack?

Seriously, no idea yet. But your nails look fabulous.

Table tennis!

And ditto on the nails.

Butt crack? Okay, I will also have to give Master of the Universe awards to funniest responses.

But you guys are heading in the right direction because the correct answer is two words! M told me that's what the line signifies... so I'll draw the first word on the left and the second word on the right.

Clue: Neither word is BUTT (and dammit, Frema, butt crack was going to be my word for the second edition and now my plan is RUINED!)

Burt's Bees: One time I was in a Border's bookstore and they had a sample of the stick your finger in the jar type lip balm. I open the container (not to test it...only to smell...I have a thing about smells) and the cashier suggested that I not test it since "lots of people have had their fingers in that...and you know, all those germs". "Yeah, I guess you're right." I didn't want to fess up to my smelling problem. He WAS quite helpful though.

My guess: two words

I'm so brilliant.

Crack head?

Have I ever mentioned my tendency to get obsessed with word games? Not scrabble so much, but word hunts, scrambles, codes, Taboo, Pictionary. . .

My guess is that it's something about a road or a stream or something.

I just bought my first tube of Burt's Bees chapstick. I like it! So I'll go with that sponsor. lol

Is it SNORT?

I'm really good at this aren't I?

Blogger Frema said...

Boggle is my favorite word game. I could play for hours!

Also, first word: bird?

Blogger Liz said...

Butt crack? Crack head? SNORT?

Well. I don't know what to say about all this, except that I am proud to know each and every one of you!

Suzy got the first word: Road.

(and no- it's not road crack, butt road, or road snort)

Road Kill?

I'm halfway there at least. Oh yeah, you gave us the first word :)

Blogger Liz said...

Roxanne: Now we can add "road kill" to our list of sordid and incorrect guesses. ;)

Blogger Frema said...

Road rage? Cuz I'm thinking that the circle is actually the first step in drawing a human head with steam coming out his ears.

Blogger Liz said...

You got it, Frema. You kicked Pictionary's butt! Now I'll be up all night trying to think up a harder word... ;)

I will crown you Master tomorrow.

Well, I'm partially proud of myself. Silly me was too busy working to check back in time for another guess. LOL

Of course this is all making me think of the pictionary scene in WHMS.

Very nice job, Frema!

Now for tomorrow's word.....

I love it when the guy yells, "draw something resembling anything!"

not that that pertains to your drawings ;)

Ah, but sometimes it does. ;)

I'm crushed that I've been too insanely busy this week to join in...
