As previously mentioned in the post prior to this I said Crystal and I needed to discuss rules. Now, instead of doing this in blog form we ended up doing it over email and text messages. This is basically how it went down:
Tanya - OHEMMGEE SO EXCITED CAN'T WAIT UNTIL YOU COME PLAY WITH ME IN THE INTERNET LAND!
Crystal - *cringes* please calm yourself
Tanya - I AM TOTALLY CALM!
Crystal - why are you internet yelling?
Tanya - THIS IS MY INDOOR INTERNET VOICE!
Crystal - Maybe we shouldn't do this.
Tanya - *cries*
Crystal - ugh fine.
Tanya - HOORAY!
Now this is more or less what happened. only ... less. Crystal has not yet at all suggested she backs out. We even took the time to craft up a lovely schedule to make this all the more interesting. By interesting, I mean commitment filled.
So this is our schedule. Monday and Thursdays are Challenge Days. Monday, Crystal responds to a challenge and provides me with a challenge and Thursday I respond and provide hers and round and round until we run out of ideas. Tuesday and Saturday are my random days and Wednesdays and Fridays are Crystal's random days - they may get actual designations later should we decide so in the future. Sundays we have off because no one needs to read this craziness seven days a week. Also, we are lazy.
It makes more sense if you look at the color coding I think. But yes, I am thinking that perhaps I will eventually make my other days have a meaning but to do that I will need to first get the hang of this stuff and see what kind of challenges Crystal provides. Can't really have my alternate days stepping on the toes of the magical challenges otherwise it defeats the purpose.
Now, I know what you are all saying: "But Tanya, yesterday was Monday and Crystal has yet to respond to your initial challenge, being that it is now TUESDAY is there not some kind of punishment for her failing to meet her obligation?" and to that I say, Why yes mysterious goody-goody, Crystal did in fact miss her deadline. And yes, we have discussed the need for punishments/bonus challenges should we miss our days. The problem is, I don't know what kind of excuses are valid. You see we had only made the schedule yesterday while she was at work so she expected to be able to answer when she got home. She even started it, I can see there is a draft, however her internet wasn't really working so she couldn't get things to work properly.
So I ask you, the internet, do we let it slide this time because it is the first time or does that set a bad precedent for future tardiness? Also Crystal, opinions? Seeing as how you would be getting the punishment I suppose you may be bias however if it were me what would you prefer? Also, please answer the challenge soon so that I have time to prepare for whatever glamorous and exciting challenge you have developed for me.
Anyways, let us know if you have any opinions on things we should do with our random days or suggested punishments for Crystal. Seriously Crystal, we are so happy you are here... by we I mean me. SO HAPPY! I am calm I swear.
