In what one might describe as as cockamamie idea, I wanted to send some stickers to Dan Lynch of Linux Outlaws and Rathole Radio fame to put on a few coffee cups at the Oggcast unconference (technically it's an audcast unconference, but I'll let it slide, this time). Unfortunately, I got caught up with writing a script for Scriptfrenzy and I failed to make the stickers in time to send them to Dan.

It is now the first of May, and the scriptfrenzy challenge has ended (I wrote my 100th page with 45 minutes left before the ending deadline) and it's time to finish the stickers.

1: Take picture of Jezra with a digital camera.
2: manipulate the image using GIMP to isolate and duplicate my head
3: put the image on a flash drive
4: print the image at a local image printing kiosk for ¢29
5: go to my buddy's house ( hey buddy, you should start a photo blog so I can link to it)

On the way to my buddy's house I was almost hit by a car while I was walking in a crosswalk. The driver of the car started yelling at me for walking in the crosswalk. For some reason, when I informed the driver that California state law requires automobiles to yield to pedestrians in crosswalks, the driver insisted that there was no such law. Wow! Apparently anyone can get a California Driver's license.

My buddy is, amongst other things, quite an image fanatic. Aside from taking a lot of pictures, he also likes to do things with pictures, and one of the things he does with pictures is turn them into stickers.

Here is my picture, my buddy's scissors (they are not lefthanded), and my buddy's roll of double sided adhesive that will turn any image into a sticker with a peel off back.

A properly sized piece of double sided tape was applied to the back of my image



Having one big sticker is not the desired outcome, so using the righthanded bastard scissors, I cut out one of the duplicated images of my head.

Awesome Possum!

After this picture was taken, I went home and used proper scissors to cut out the other two Jezra images.


So where does that leave me? I have three Jezra stickers that are too large to put on the bottom of a coffee cup and I don't plan on sending them to Dan Lynch.

OK, I'm going to give the stickers away in a pathetic contest type thing.
Here are the rules:
1. you must send me a post-card from your current city of residence
2. you must write your address on the post-card

now stop reading, and get a post-card.

But how can we know your postal adress? :D

(awaiting an email ;) )

Part of the challenge is *finding* my mailing address.
2010-05-02 Julian Aloofi:
Ah I see. After a bit of searching the obvious places, I found lots of interesting stuff about you, but not your postal adress (actually found your phone number faster).

So, I tried really hard in my brain, and finally found the solution ;)

Off to buy some stamps.
2010-05-07 jezra:
please see *rule* number 2.

I imagine that just writing "Jezra - Petaluma, CA" on a postcard would have a 50/50 chance of reaching you. :D
2010-05-07 jezra:
Are you going to take that 80 cent gamble?
2010-05-28 mjjzf:
On the bottom of a coffee cup? Or a tea cup?
2010-05-28 jezra:
A coffee cup of course. A tea cup is just a coffee cup that someone accidentally filled with tea.

Is this competition still open? One of those sweet stickers would look great on my work cup.
2010-09-07 jezra:
sure, why not. The picture will be different though.

Prove you are human by solving a math problem! I'm sorry, but due to an increase of blog spam, I've had to implement a CAPTCHA.
