Wow. We are not even a week into the challenge and we have grown to four Participants.

100 Day Challenge – 2012

This entry is part 1 of 4 in the series 100 Day Challenge 2012

Once again @DemonPengu and I have decided to fight the meh of Writers Block, Artistic Avoidance, and a general all round lack of enthusiasm in the Office with our own private 100 day challenge It’s not The 100 day challenge (Because we missed that again). This year we have a new participant @MaguirePete joining us in an attempt to restart the creative juices flowing. So a day was picked “The 1st of July” as Day 1: (Well this way it does not clash with NaNoWriMo or the run up to Christmas) and for the next 100 days we will be doing a creative thing a day.

As with The challenge the creative thing can be, drawings, art, poetry, writing, anything as long as its creative (and one piece a day)

So everyone wish me luck, and words of encouragement welcome, for I can not let the the others Win!

Note: It also helps that we are all “slightly” competitive over these things, and no one will want to be the first to fail, which will help encourage us to complete the challenge.

To save this blog getting spammed I have created a dedicated site for the challenge at http://100days.three-ninjas.co.uk. I will (probably for the first few weeks then forget) post weekly updates on here, but the daily progress will be on the dedicated site.

@DemonPengu’s Day 2011 awesome kickoff.

The 6 Nations 2012 – Update The Grandslam

Yes, Wales did it, The Triple Crown, The Six Nations Championship, & The Grand Slam.

Ok, we went into our final match basically winners of the 6Nations*, and were mainly playing for the GrandSlam** But whatever reason we played our hearts out and when the final whistle blew over battered and broken players in ripped shirts, Wales was the 2012 “Year of the Dragon” Champions.

Now if you recall This Post You will recall we said that if Wales won the 6Nations we here at the Ninja Temple would offer a prize to a commenter, or a donation to charity. We have not forgotten and are working out the best way to do this.

Pos Team P W D L F A PD TF Pts
1 No change (1) Wales 5 5 0 0 109 58 51 10 10
2 No change (2) England 5 4 0 1 98 71 27 6 8
3 No change (3) Ireland 5 2 1 2 121 94 27 13 5
4 No change (4) France 5 2 1 2 101 86 15 8 5
5 Up (6) Italy 5 1 0 4 53 121 -68 4 2
6 Down (5) Scotland 5 0 0 5 56 108 -52 4 0

 

And A quick commiseration to Scotland who got the Wooden Spoon. Well I guess after 9 Years of winning the Spoon, Italy were determined not to get it for a Tenth year in a row.

* OK. if we had lost, and England beaten the Irish by something like a bazillion points they may have been the winners. But we beat them so it would only have been a technical win, not a real one.
** And revenge on the French for the WorldCup fiasco of the match-fixing Ref

100 Day Challenge

This entry is part 1 of 4 in the series 100 Day Challenge

I have along with @DemonPengu decided to take part in a 100 Day Challenge. It’s not The 100 day challenge (Because we missed that) But A 100 day challenge. Basically there has been a bit of Writers Block, Artistic Avoidance, and a general all round lack of enthusiasm in the Office of late. So after spotting the challenge online, we decided we would do our own in an attempt to restart the creative juices flowing. So a day was picked “Monday 12th September” as Day 1: and for the next 100 days we will both be doing a creative thing a day.

As with The challenge the creative thing can be, drawings, art, poetry, writing, anything as long as its creative (and one piece a day)

To save this blog getting spammed I have created a dedicated site for the challenge at http://100days.three-ninjas.co.uk. I will (probably) post weekly updates on here, but the daily progress will be on the dedicated site.

So everyone wish me luck, and words of encouragement welcome, for I can not let the DemonPenguin Win!

Note: It also helps that we are both “slightly” competitive over these things, and neither will want to be the first to fail, which will help encourage us to complete the challenge.

Take That Tickets – Failed Giverway

Last week we here at the Ninja Temple got our hands on two tickets to See Take That live in concert.  Basically GothNinja (Myself) Won them from a competition that came with my new phone. Now none of us wanted to go see them, since we are all male, straight, with a reasonable taste in music :)

CN:Just Joking. Please Don’t take offence!

GN:Yes, Just joking. MN has a lousy taste in music

Anyway, since none of us wanted the tickets our thought was to offer them as a prize in a competition we could run on this site & twitter/Facebook. Unfortunately the tickets were for this Thursday (In Glasgow) which did not give us enough time to get the tickets shipped to us, then out to the winner. Also due to the short notice they decided to just leave the tickets in my name at the box-office, which you will need photo ID to collect.

So We’re sorry, especially to all Take That fans who were unable to get tickets to any of the shows, and now hear that we have two tickets that will not be used.

We will try and make it up to you guys, and try and organise some competition with a suitable prize in the near future!
