Hi Everybody! I can’t believe how excited some of you are about the Moon trip – to the point where I’m getting lotsa email with questions and I figure I just can’t keep saying “soon” to at least give you some more “substantial” information about our trip. TODAY IS THE DAY!
First of all, yesterday I gave you the dates for the trip BUT if you didn’t record them, get your calendars out because here’s when we’ll be going.
LAUNCH DATE: Thursday, February 27
RETURN FROM THE MOON:
Saturday, March 1
To prepare for this pawsome event, you will need to begin thinking about the following things and deadlines!
- Preparing your spacesuit! IThe “template” spacesuit is at the bottom of this blog and you can either use it, OR, if you want to find your OWN spacesuit to decorate and personalize that’s fine too! The space cadet with the coolest/neatest/cleverest decorated suit is going to win a PRIZE! YOU CAN EMAIL ME YOUR FINISHED PHOTO (in .jpg or .jpeg format) NOT LATER THAN SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 23. We’ll have a poll for your favorite on February 25th and I’ll announce the WINNER at a big party we’ll have at the Lunar Hotel the night of February 28th !! WOO HOO
- Prepare an entry for the “WEIRDEST MOON CREATURE” contest! Yep – be creative and let me know what kind of creature you imagine lives up on the Moon that we might run into when we visit! Scary, weird, downright insane – whatever your little imagination thinks a Moon Creature would look like. If you enter THIS contest you need to have your picture/artwork/creation to me NOT LATER THAN SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 23. We’ll also have a poll for your favorite creature for this contest on February 25th and the WINNER will be announced at our Lunar Hotel on the 28th at the pawty!!
- Decorate your Lunar Hotel Room contest! I’m going to be posting below a picture of the “generic” hotel room from our Lunar Hotel where you’ll have your own private room with bath of course where you’ll sleep the night of February 27th and 28th before we come home. You can add all the comforts of home to your room if you like – and if we think you have the coziest or most interesting room you might win this contest and get a prize! Again, if you want to enter this one, you need to send me the room fully decorated in .jpg or .jpeg format NOT LATER THAN SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 23rd. We’ll ALSO vote for the best decorated room on February 25th!
SO – how’s that for a lot of information????!!!
THREE CONTESTS WITH PRIZES: (1) Best decorated spacesuit……….(2) decorate your hotel room on the Moon…………(3) coolest Moon creature ! You can enter one, two, three or NONE of the contests – it’s up to you!
ENTRIES MUST BE RECEIVED BY ME NO LATER THAN SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 23 – voting will be TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 25th. YOU CAN BEGIN SENDING THEM ANY TIME STARTING TODAY – I’m READY!!!
ENTRIES SHOULD BE SENT TO ME AT firstname.lastname@example.org – AS ATTACHMENTS TO YOUR EMAIL in .jpg or .jpeg format please ! SUBJECT LINE SHOULD READ: MOON TRIP If I can’t download your entries I’ll email you immediately so you can re-send.
One other impawtant note………..I’ve been asked if humans may come along on the trip……….We will be able to offer accommodation to only FIVE humans at a max on this trip SO, if your human wants to come along OR if you are a human without a pet that’s coming along (!!!), you need to notify me ASAP at my email address – the first five will get to accompany us (and yes they can also enter all the contests!!).
ARE YOU EXCITED????? GOT QUESTIONS????
Ask questions in comments and I’ll answer them.
HOW COOL IS THIS? Woo Hoo
Here is the “template” for the spacesuit contest (or you may use your own spacesuit but I MUST have your face showing!)
Here is the “template” for the hotel room decorating contest (this is the room you must decorate if you’re entering this contest!!)
I’ll be reminding you of ALL OF THESE things several times over the next week or so…..including deadlines. Please remember that if you are going on this trip you MUST have a spacesuit to wear for part of the journey – even if you don’t DECORATE one and don’t enter that contest, you need to send me a photo of you in a spacesuit. I also need a photo of you that I can use for the party we’re having at the lunar hotel….you don’t need to be in costume or formal clothes – just any photo will do !!
GOT IT? It’s a lot I know…….but boy are we gonna have a BLAST (and I’m not just talking about the moon launch)
NOW – GET TO WORK!
