Bullseye

Oh my friends!  We here at the Hotel Thompson have been watching a new game show on television called Bullseye.  It is hosted by Kellan Lutz – you know him from Twlight (he played Emmett Cullen) and co-hosted by Godfrey who is a comedian on the Godfrey Complex.  This show is a combination of Wipe Out and Fear Factor.

It starts with 8 contestants (4 women and 4 men).  They have to go through three challenges.  By the beginning of the third challenge, they are down to 3 contestants to go up against each other to win $50,000!  So you think it’s easy to play?

They have different challenges that I’ve seen in the past couple of weeks.  One challenge had the contestants running down a MOVING train from the caboose to the engine.  Along the ways, they were throwing off bullseye’s that were attached to the side of the train.  Then they rushed to the front of the train and jumped off to hit the big bullseye to stop the train.  Don’t worry – they were all tied so they wouldn’t fall off the train or jump to far in front of the train to stop it.  But can you imagine doing this?  The quickest one that got all of the bullseyes removed, won the $50,000.  Not bad for a days work huh?

I’ve also seen it where they are attached to a cord hanging off of a helicopter.  They are swung through the air and have to throw big bean bags towards a bullseye on the ground.  They get two attempts and the closes bean bag to the bullseye target wins.  Sound fun swinging through the air?

The show airs on the Fox channel on Wednesday nights at 9:00 PM.  Mark your calendar to watch it this week.  We highly recommend it here at the Hotel Thompson.  In fact, I think I’m going to practice hitting some bullseye targets this week… where are those purr things to help me out?  Snorts!

And the Winner Is?

And the winner of guessing correctly on WHO and WHERE my mom and dad are meeting is A DOUBLE WINNER!

Easy guessed WHO but JustJan guessed WHERE

CONGRATULATIONS YOU TWO WINNERS!

They are now the proud winners of the Squeal Like a Pig badge.  Take it and post it on your blog with pride my friends.

My mom/dad and Kali and Shoko’s parents from The Canadian Cats will be meeting up for a play date of some sorts.  There is no telling how much trouble these peeps will get into.  Please have bail money on standby my friends 🙂  Snorts!  I think it is fantastic that everyone was able to work together and make this date – especially since Kali and Shoko’s parents will be on an adventure of their own on vacation.

And trust me – there will be pictures.  I’ve made mom and dad promise to take pictures of everything and report back EVERYTHING so I can share.  I’m sure they will all have a snort of a good time.

And friends please pray and send good vibes all of our ways – they are calling for snow, sleet or a wintry mix in the neck of the woods we are meeting.  So, keep your fingers crossed that everything goes according to plans.

ASPCA Rachael Ray Giveaway

AAWW – A while back I won a giveaway on my friend Coco’s web page.  You can read all about it here. We found out while we were on vacation at the beach a couple of weeks ago.  We were totally psyched!  Me win – HOORAY!  This could not have happened at a perfect time – you know since we got the little guy Houdini here at the Hotel Thompson.

IMG_0135.JPG

Yesterday around noon, there was a knock on the door and it was the Federal Express guy.  Now I’m just going to say that he might have jumped a little at first when I came to the door with daddy – snorts.  He wasn’t expecting me but I sure was expecting my package made out to me might I add – 🙂

And of course daddy was being a loser but not letting me open my package until mommy got home – turd head.  But he did let me call mommy to tell her that it came.  I’m not sure who was more excited – me, mommy or Houdini who didn’t know what was happening.

IMG_0136.JPG

So as soon as mom got home, we let her put her things down before we started on about opening the package.  It was Christmas here at the Hotel Thompson!  A toy dog, a blankie, a bandana, a pop up water bowl, a travel mug, cookies (the kind that daddy can actually eat – snorts), a frisbee toy and a hat with cat ears.  OMP – score for Little Man Houdini!!

And mom – oh my silly mom.  She loves the hat with cat ears.  Don’t you think it is so her!?

And the tote that everything came in – that is awesome!  It’s HUGE and insulated.  Mom said there are so many things she can use that with.

So we have to say some shout outs and thank you’s to the following:

Katie and Cocco – Smooches! ❤

Ya’ll ROCK!

Elf on Shelf Contest – Winner

IMG_0146 IMG_0145-0

So this contest is said and done.  First up – I want to thank EVERYONE that submitted emails and EVERYONE that voted.  We really appreciate that here at the Hotel Thompson.  There were some great emails sent and don’t worry – there will be more contests in the future 🙂

It was a very close race in the voting.  The top 3 according to the list were:

No. 3 – Evil Squirrel

No. 2 – Sammy

No. 1 WINNER – Samuel and Wallace!

Congratulations my friends.  South Africa is going to get their very own Elf on the Shelf.

Samuel and Wallace, please send me your address to send you your new friend.  You will need to name him before Thanksgiving.  Keep in mind, he is related to our Don Juan but who knows what his personality will be until after he receives his powers the day after Thanksgiving.  Don’t forget to post updates on him.  We will surely miss the guy here at the Hotel Thompson.

Contest Time! – REMINDER

C O N T E S T     T I M E 

Don’t forget about our contest my friends. YAY!

Shake your tail feathers.  Do a little dance.  Have some fun – it’s contest time!  It’s so exciting.  We’ve been thinking about a contest here at the Hotel Thompson and I think we have a winner!

Every year at the Hotel Thompson the day after Thanksgiving our friend Don Juan comes out to play.  You remember Don Juan don’t you?  He’s our special little Elf on a Shelf that is *always* up to no good in so many different ways.   If you forgot about Don Juan, you can read about that little fellow here .  And we all have to remember when Don Juan filled in for me on a special Dear Bacon edition.  Oh dear piggy heavens.   Thank goodness he only sneaks out once a year.

I think we ALL remember this little surprise he left mommy last year under the Christmas tree.  Rolls piggy eyes.  He was bad.  I mean really bad.  He even liked to sneak in the bathroom and watch mommy take a shower.  He would throw skittles at her.  Unreal that fellow.

This year we thought we would share the fun.  That’s it.  Share the fun.  You can have your very own Evil Little Elf on a Shelf.  A friend of Don Juan has come to visit us here early.  He’s still boxed up because you know those elves don’t have secret powers until the day after Thanksgiving.

Here are the rules for the contest: 

  1. Send me an email at baconthompson@gmail.com why you think you should adopt the boxed up Elf on the Shelf.  Explain what makes your family special and what you have to give.  Words, pictures or videos.  Whatever you think will give you the edge.

  2. We are taking submissions until August 30th, 2014 at midnight.

  3. We will randomly pick the top three submissions and post them for everyone to vote on in September.

  4. The winner gets their very own boxed up Elf on the Shelf.  Now remember, this is a friend of our Don Juan.  Who knows if he is evil or good.  That’s between the winner and the boxed up Elf on the Shelf.

So put on your thinking hats my friends and get started with the emails.  It should be a blast!

 P.S.  Here’s a heads up sneak preview of the captured Elf.  He doesn’t look that evil – or does he?
