Survivor Challenge #1

I am one of Supah's Survivors. Each one of us assigned a Hero or a Villain, with our Supah's version of immunity challenges. Lose, and we have to vote one of our tribe off the island.
There are also fabulous prizes involved. See the list of sponsors on my side bar!
I am a Hero. Cirie, to be exact. The brainy lady with the sweet smile who secretly pulled off some great blindsides. Yet, no one hated her for it because she had others do the dirty work; she sat back and quietly controlled the game. She did question a little why she was on the Heroes team and I love how she described herself- if you missed it during the show, you will see it in the last line of my poem.
Yes, we had to write a poem. Probably karmic payback for the poems I assigned my former students to write. I'm sorry.

Our first challenge was to make a Valentine's Day card for our host, Harv. MAKE, as in with paper, glue, and other crafty stuff. The former elementary teacher in me was excited...until I realized that we are having a freak snowstorm here in Eastern NC, meaning that I will not be able to get to the store or to storage, where the majority of my craft supplies are.

But, even with recycled-from-one-of-my-boys'-art-projects construction paper, I'm still sending Harv a fabulous Valentine.

Ignore the odd green stuff in the background- that's from the palm tree painted on my desk.

H arv, my love
E veryone on the heroes
R eally loves you.
O ur opponents lie.
E veryone knows that
S upah's Island is sending you love.

R eality tv hosts have nothing on
U , Harv
L ove from all the heroes,
E specially me, the "gangsta in an Oprah suit."

Happy Valentine's Day, Harv!

Be sure to check out all the Valentines in this first challenge at Supah's Island.

Harv will be picking the winner next week, after he receives our cards(so he can appreciate my superior craftsmanship). Losing team will be voting off one or more of their team members.

Let's go, Heroes!

She is just too smart and what if she kicks off JT or James? I like them!

How cute is that. Great job!

The monkeys remind me of the warning the guy working at Gamestop gave me and my son last night as we were checking out "watch out for the chocolate monkeys... they are out there" and of course without missing a beat I replied (as my 18.5 year old son rolls his eyes) "yeah, thanks... i saw a couple out there as we came in". I was in a play-along mood, what can I say. lol

I love your valentine! I've written my poem, but we've been up to our eyeballs in school parties, snow!, and basketball games since the challenge was issued. I'm hoping to make a run to the craft store before the prince takes me to dinner tonight! Cirie's quote was farkin' hilarious! I put it in my poem too. I really hope she doesn't go too soon. I love her....and you. :)
