I made it to puzzlePALOOZA!
I did it. I achieved puzzle piece.
As I mentioned in this post, I officially named my piece Cheezle.
Well, I changed my mind. It’s now named Chaiku – the book component of the puzzle piece contains 12 haiku that I wrote about cheese.
Due to lack of time, I wrote the haiku in by hand. Unfortunately, I realized that I have to redo the book because one of my haiku is structurally unsound. Since a rebinding is imminent, I’m also considering typing up the haiku for the new version.
Anyone have an opinion on this? Do you think that handwritten pages are more appropriate?
Here are the contents of the book:
So many species. Goat, sheep, cow, and buffalo. Your milk is cheese gold.
Twig Farm, Thistle Hill, Fat Toad, Cobb Hill, Dancing Cow. Vermont makes great cheese.
Dripping off my toast. Brie, why are you so gooey? Soft cheese misbehaves.
I sure do love cheese. What’s with the farting? Oy. Lactose intolerant.
Cabot Cheese, World’s Best. Hunter’s Seriously Sharp. Eat until I barf.
Philadelphia. Freshman year I met my match. How I love cheese fries.
Mozzerella, ick! Some cheese I just can’t stomach. Un-American.
Oh,what is that smell? Stilton, Roquefort, Camembert. Music to my nose.
Hmmm…Mayor McCheese. When’s his term done? No…I mean… Expiration date?
Greek legal asset, Feta cheese sure is salty. Why don’t you export?
Mild bits are cheese curds, Not to be confused with turds, That would be absurd.
Cheez Whiz, Kraft Foods spread. Velvety smooth, pour it on. What’s cheese food? Unreal.
The Vermont Arts Council distributed 9,500 wood and 51,000 paper puzzle pieces to Vermonters – the number of participants translates to 10% of Vermont’s population participating in the project.
At 2:00 p.m., I was part of the Guinness World Record that was set for the World’s Largest Jigsaw puzzle with over 1,600 pieces measuring 2,603 square feet. It was fun being involved in such a grand project.
Here are some of my favorite puzzle pieces:
I wish I had been better about noting who made these. 🙁
And last, but not least, the most fabulous of foam hats:
Hey puzzle hat girl! You rock!
