Back from the bike ride around town showing off the new hair… I received plenty of honks and only a few people that intentionally swerved to try and run me over thinking I was a smurf. On the ride I completed the second task set upon me by the crowd http://www.crowdpicker.com/question/view_question/125.
I found a table and chairs on the bike ride, and refinished the table. I brought them all back to the apartment; happy to have some furniture. Lo and behold, the table can’t fit in my door. I have some chairs now and a hall table/fire hazard for the rest of the apartment… sweet, can I have a beer yet? http://www.crowdpicker.com/question/view_question/127… Why yes I can.
Ma.ruth Arcite has been given Kiva loan 4!
The nap from last night got a little carried away and morphed into hibernation. The good news is, I am now ready to charge into three days of insanity. Starting things off here is the first poll: http://www.crowdpicker.com/question/view_question/124. One thing is for sure, my blue hair and I are getting up to something.
New Kiva loan poll: http://www.crowdpicker.com/question/view_question/126.
What an adventurous day so far; the burning of the scalp has come to an end now, but the great taste that the crowd has in hair color selection will live on. The crowd has decided to send me to bed for nap… at 9pm? Starting to think I should visit a vegetarian website, and maybe go to the grocery store:
Ada Luz has been given a double dose of cash because Mrs. Vorn Daim already had her loan filled. http://www.crowdpicker.com/question/view_question/121 Kiva works very fast, just like CrowdPicker!
Oscar has received the first Kiva loan http://www.crowdpicker.com/question/view_question/122, but I am still waiting for the results for the second loan to be awarded!
I am now part smurf, with blue hair… well mostly, another coat of “Shocking Blue” is needed to get the remaining splotches of other colors out. My scalp still burns from the bleach, but in a good way.
Last night’s dinner saw naan and humus take the lead: http://www.crowdpicker.com/question/view_question/119. Unfortunately my culinary skills aren’t quite up to par; I went on to burn the naan. Following that up with another non-meat breakfast of bagels with cheese… again burning the bagel.
It looks like all four of the borrowers from the Kiva poll are fully funded already! The amount that was going to go towards Alma Elumbaring, will now go to another deserving borrower.
Crowd is looking out for me again.. I think, a decisive win for checking out a house: http://www.crowdpicker.com/question/view_question/115. They probably know something that I don’t. I’ll be back with some photos.
Hair color is starting to lean heavily on blue, its going to take a lot to turn that around… hooray!
Due to the support of the crowd community for Kiva, I think that it will be best to kick that part of 7 days up a notch. Everyday I will be posting the stories of 4 Kiva borrowers, and asking the crowd to pick who should be awarded the loan. I hope that you all can participate as well, either through comments on this blog or through loans to Kiva itself.
Some photos from breakfast, lunch, and kayaking… I took a kayak out with DropGallery leader, Derek around the gorge; as per the crowd’s pick http://www.crowdpicker.com/question/view_question/110.
No flipping of the kayak yet, the gorge water is pretty grungy… option of jumping in the ocean is still out there though, and likely in the next few days.
The Kiva loan will be getting posted shortly. Next up, hair color… thoughts? http://www.crowdpicker.com/question/view_question/108.
More polls will be posted shortly!
Thursday is shaping up to look pretty good so far!

Clothing – White T: http://www.crowdpicker.com/question/view_question/113
Sport – Kayaking: http://www.crowdpicker.com/question/view_question/110
Charity – Kiva: http://www.crowdpicker.com/question/view_question/111
Kiva has developed a network that facilitates micro-loans to poor people in impoverished countries. These loans are typically in the few hundred dollar range, but provide enormous value and opportunity to these communities.
For the Week:
Diet for the week – Vegetarian: http://www.crowdpicker.com/dashboard/view_question/103
Round 2 of decision making is looking like I am going to see a drastic change to my diet for the week, http://www.crowdpicker.com/question/view_question/103. The poll is only a quarter complete, but a vegetarian diet appears to have a solid lead. I’ll definitely need to learn some new things to cook, but until the poll is complete I’m going to run and grab a few steaks.
The movie poll for tonight is currently dead even across Inception, The Other Guys, and Piranha 3D http://www.crowdpicker.com/question/view_question/106, with Avatar being a clear loser in this battle.
Upcoming polls can be seen in some of these links:
