Decathlon in a Tree by Borgasm

September 21st, 2009 2:39 AM

INSTRUCTIONS: Perform all of the following:

Read in a tree.
Sing or play a musical instrument in a tree.
Eat a meal in a tree.
Brush your teeth in a tree.
Create a work of art in a tree.
Play a game in a tree.
Install a work of art in a tree.
Carry out a business transaction in a tree.
Sleep in a tree.
Kiss in a tree.

I did it.
What started as a solo project, then became a collaboration, then became my solo project, is finally finished. I sat in a tree for three and a half hours and completed all ten tasks required of me. Some, as you will see, were harder than others.

Here's a video of my business transaction:

And here's a video of me singing and giving a tour of my tree. View muted for best results.

I couldn't get any proof of me sleeping because, well, how am I supposed to take a picture of myself sleeping? I did try to sleep though. You'll just have to take my word for it.

+ larger

Me in my tree
My tree from a distance
My Neighbor
Nervous about the height
I choose you!
Reading in a tree
A Card for Becky
Ze card
Tree Ornaments
Brushing my teeth!
That guy
Me and Jesse
My list
All done!

My real motive for inviting him up. Hey, it was all for the sake of tasking! (psst: thank you to whomever wrote this task! lol)

Heh. As some might have guessed, the whole task started with a musing on how bizarre the "sitting in a tree" children's rhyme is. But, it didn't really seem task-worthy in itself without some additions.

A fine completion of a thoroughly silly task. Nicely done!
