We had 100% participation in Round 1!!!! And, we had 14 people completing the TUP – which is well more than the 9 needed to get Team Unity points!!!! Way to go, everyone!!!!
For TUP, gbina’s Valentine featured a bath puff that Troi (Star Trek: The Next Generation) might have used “during her romantic bath interlude with Commander Riker”. I loved the caption “Be my Valentine, but get rid of the beard first!” Knowing how much Miss Piggy (Sesame Street) likes men in green, msjudymsjudy set up Miss Piggy on a date with Rigel (Farscape). Because of their dainty, refined appetites , the Valentine featured tea cakes. Suzibeans’s Valentine featured knit water-plants socks and Yoda’s (Star Wars) love of Dagobah and its many swamps with the added terrible pun caption “Not a Dagobah that I don’t think of you.” anerenbe’s Valentine is fingerless mitts than John might give Aeryn (Farscape) with a card featuring a scene of the two pointing pistols at each other and the caption “love is weird”. Sharon and Helo’s (Battlestar Galactica) love for each other and their unborn child is celebrated in a Valentine featuring an ice-cream cozy – perfect for an expecting mother. guen001’s Valentine is about memories of love – the love between Galen and Cally (Battlestar Galactica) – through a double-leaf heart. Finally, we all know how much Janeway (Star Trek: Voyager) loves her coffee. Ladyokie’s Valentine is of a coffee cozy.
For final totals for the month, we have 13 Discovery projects, 15 Encyclopedia, 15 Flexible, 12 Giving (additional ones to Because I am a Girl, STEP, and Heifer International), and 18 Nerdology.
