Another competition??

Yes, you read that title correctly. Eel and I are such competitors, we're not satisfied with just the one competition, but had to start another one! This time, we're having a Farmville competition! Since we're both playing it, we thought it'd be fun to spice up the game a little.

We both took screenshots of our farm at the same time, and we're going to compare the extra money and points in mid December. The loser has to buy dinner for the winner. So far, it looks like I'm doing pretty badly! I'm about 500 points behind Eel. :( It looks like the difference is she plants a lot of 4 hour crops, and I don't, because I try not to play Farmville at work. *sigh* Looks like I'll be buying her dinner in December! Here's a shot of my farm, as of yesterday. Notice the lack of organization? Haha...

Oh yes, another reason I'm falling behind in Farmville? Mafia Wars! I succumbed after seeing all the Mafia Wars updates in my feed, and I was just so curious to know what it was about. And I'm doomed, I'm spending lots of time on it. I'm almost up to level 40 now, and that's less than a week of playing. Uh-oh!

And after all that, mustn't forget about HAEDing, which is where all the competing started in the first place. I've been sticking to my quota, just barely. For the first time in ages, I didn't do a lot of extra last week, I did my quota...and 4 extra stitches. *sigh* Darn you, dress! When will my torture be over?

Competition Rules

Competition Begins: 1st May 2008
Competition Ends: Chinese New Year 2013

Goal: Complete a HAED design by the time allotted.

Designs chosen are to be of approximately the same sizes. Contestants are free to change their design half way, however it must also be of the similar size to the original design chosen.

Each month, each contestant will deposit USD$20 into a separate bank account.

Every fortnight, each contestant has to update this blog with updated progress pictures.

Prize Money:

If only one contestant completes her design by the deadline, she gets the total amount of money saved by both contestants.

If neither designs are complete, the entire sum of money is to be donated to a charity that is agreed upon by both contestants.

If both complete it on time, the money is divided in the following manner:

60% of the total goes to the contestant who completes* her design first within the deadline.

40% of the total goes to the contestant who completes* her design last within the deadline.

* For EeL, completion means full completion. For Sae, completion for the 60% winner total is 210,400 stitches, with the remainder stitches to be completed by the deadline.
