Potted Plant Distribution by Majyk, Charli Morrish, Marv

March 5th, 2009 12:28 PM

INSTRUCTIONS: Acquire a small potted plant. Leave the plant in a store, cafe, or a location of your choosing that has lack of potted plants.

WARNING! the following task contains 3 idiots who listen to to much rock and drink to much beer and refuse to sit still unless restrained, 2 potted plants and 1 potted tree, yes that's right a potted tree. You have been warned!
For this lovely little task i had two newcomers to SF0 joining me and it was my honour and pleasure to take them out on there first task. So to charli and marv who were my accomplice's on our night of nefarious exploits i hope the both of you enjoyed it and may i be the first to say, Welcome to the game!

A point for plant liberation.

A potted tree is pretty awesome. Where did you get it, and where did it end up? I think more votes would follow an update -- either go check up on where you left the plants, or give us a little more description (and maybe a new-player introduction?)

Thanks +1

A bit of elaboration on what happened and highlighting of the main parts is all that's really necessary; the completion itself seems (from what I can tell here) to be pretty solid. For instance: the plants eventually ended up in two car parks and a carriageway, but this isn't immediately clear to the reader. The photos of leaving them at their destinations look, at first glance, to just be you holding the plants in those places, and the descriptions always talk of the person "display"ing the plant, rather than depositing or leaving it there. The neat rationale behind your own choice of drop point (the car sales lot, with its little cleanliness ironies) is similarly easy to lose in the shuffle.

Other than that, I was also a little curious about the two store-bought plants - where you got them, what kind of plant they are, etc. since we never really got to "meet" these two as we did the daffodil. It's just a little thing, but color me curious about it (and anyway, asking little questions like that when the writeup didn't mention them is part of the purpose of comments).

It's easy to be intimidated, but don't be! You are already doing very well - the story from when you captured your third potted plant from-the-wild is the kind of silly on-the-fly thinking that we thrive on around here. All that remains is to present it a little more clearly, and flesh out the barebones parts of your process a bit. :)

Votes for chaotic free-wheeling task completion, not the chaotic free-wheeling presentation :)

You only get a little vote from me because I worry about the health of the plants in their final destination. :(
