    Hi all. First, let me say thank you for your patience. I had originally planned to have a new contest up Friday night. Unfortunately, I've been struggling trying to come up with a theme. The first one I picked, I realized we had done before. The second one... I didn't really like all that much. So after a bunch of hemming and hawing, I ended up just copping out a little, and going with this one. On the plus side, we should all have plenty of ideas for this theme after the last two months... ;)

    So our topic is activities to do during lockdown/quarantine/sheltering-in-place. Basically, anything you can do to pass the time while the world is shut down. You may enter up to two avatars. Your entry must be no larger than 200 x 200 pixels, and 1 MB. No images from movies and television, please. And I know what some of you may be doing to pass the time, but please, please keep in mind that all entries have to be SFW! ;)

    Contest will be open for about a week... I hope to post the poll next Sunday night.

    Here are my entries:

    Have fun! :techman:

    What about images from YouTube that are not part of any TV show or movie?

    I don't know if we have a precedent for this or not, but for this contest, I'm going to say it's OK.

    To clarify, I'm not suggesting using videos, just images from screen shots. There are a lot of people who demonstrate all kinds of hobbies, for instance.

    Sorry, @Captain pl1ngpl0ng , but I have to disallow this one. I wondered where it came from (because, Patrick Stewart), so I did some Googling, and it turns out it's from a TV show called American Dad. Sorry.



    (Pretty funny, though. :) )

    "Acting." Still cracks me up. That has to be one of my all-time favorite Patrick Stewart moments.

    Just to check, @Captain pl1ngpl0ng , you wish to replace your car-driving dog entry?

    Also, to everyone... last call! Poll should go up tomorrow evening, so you've probably got about 30 hours or so to get those last-minute entries in!

    I'm doing all sorts of needlework (e.g. a quilt for my mom) and I photograph the flowers on my terrace (dandelions can look rather pretty, depending on the angle)
