Hvnly’s Little Cloud turned 3 today!

What the hell does that title mean?

A year ago I would have asked the same thing. Then one day in August last year I encountered a series of accounts online that were pretending to be clocks and a brand new bizarre world was revealed to me; GISHWHES world.

Who this world is ruled by is one crazy personality. His name is Misha Collins.  Don’t know who that is?  Well, let me help; you know that show Supernatural?  You know those two great guys who are the stars?  Yes?  Well it’s neither of them.

You know that ultra serious guy pretending to be their guardian angel only he leads them astray and then comes back to save the day to get the hero editing? 

Still doesn’t ring a bell? 

How about this; he is the creepy guy that wears a trenchcoat…

Yes!  Bingo!  That’s him and that’s his name.  Now you don’t have to say “good ole what’s his name was on Supernatural tonight!”

Moving on, now that I just spent 2 paragraphs to get you to know who Misha Collins is let’s talk about GISHWHES. 

GISHWHES stands for the:

Greatest International Scavenger Hunt the World Has Ever Seen!  It is played in Teams comprised of fifteen players.  If you can’t find 14 others; don’t worry- GISHWHES will put together a team for you..

The grand prize for winning - the team ending out with the most points- is an adventure trip.  This year it’s a trip to Croatia; previous years trips were to Vancouver, Scotland and Rome.

 What do you have to do?: There’s a list of tasks (this year was 190 odd tasks to do)  each worth varying points.  The approach my team took was that everyone went through the list and figured out what they could do(and what I could do.)      

"Oh brother! Is he crazy?" was the first thing that came to mind  when I finally saw the list.  To answer it simply, yes, I firmly believe that CTG (Creepy Trenchcoat Guy) is crazy.        

The list was insane.  Several times I wished I had ignored those clock accounts a year ago and never got to know what’s his name.  I wished I didn’t know now about GISHWHES what I didn’t know then. (Now you get the title!)       

So who was on my team?  Here is my team:

image

They are pretty scary bunch, aren’t they?  Wouldn’t want to face them in a battlefield, would you? 

No siree!

Look closely, there’s a TV Vampire, Boba Fett from Star Wars (my war with Star Wars was in détente during the hunt), a Myth Buster and a Hero of Cosplay!  There’s also a player from Slovakia and a player from Iran on my team!

Whine: Not fair you say that I can have a team because I’m a supposed celebrity?  Well the folks at GISHWHES established the Shatner Clause just for you!

image

BTW, the hats some of them are wearing…you aren’t seeing things; sock monkey caps! It’s de rigueur for GISHWHES!

To do battle on the field of GISHWHES the team must be clever, perform tasks worth points and wear your sock monkey caps! 

Why is everyone holding a sign? Going back to my team photo above; think most everyone looks sad and what is it with those signs?  Well, it was part of one of the tasks:

image

And that, as they say, was 72 points for Team Shatner!

Think that was easy?  I bet you’re thinking; I’m  going to cake walk this next year and win…!  Right?

Weird: How about this task?

image

How are you going to get that one done, cowboy?

Wow: BTW, my team got that accomplished.  While NASA shut everyone else down for bothering the ISS astronauts; I called upon my friend, the Mars Rover Curiosity and had the Rover tag a rock on Mars.  Mars, as you may recall from school orbits in space.

image

Also, see in the pic at the bottom?  That’s my friend Curiosity, the “astronaut” posing with the item.  ;-)   I’m claiming the full 400 points!

So for the rest of forever the GISHWHES rock on Mars will be there orbiting our solar system!  Once we colonize Mars, I envision future generations giving directions; “Go down Canal Street to Nebula way and then go by GISHWHES rock and the place will be on the left….”

Tasks were bizarre, some had no real directions; it was totally interpretive:

image

WTH??!!  That’s all it said.  How would YOU accomplish this?  It’s worth 17 points if you could figure out a clever way. 

What are the Costs; what does it cost to do GISHWHES?

This is arbitrary; the cost to join the hunt starts at a $18 donation and goes up depending upon what items you wanted; flag, snake oil (olive oil with seasoning), a phonemail message from Mr. What’s His Name.  If you cannot afford it there are “scholarships” available where other good natured people doing random acts of kindness help fund your registration costs for the hunt.

I also did a very non-scientific poll on Twitter to see what folks spend.  Let me preface that GISHWHES central states you can do the tasks for little or no costs and I believe that.  A large number of people suggested that they spent about $200 individually.  I know someone on my team spent over one hundred eighty thousand tomans!

(BTW, that’s somewhere in the neighborhood of US$60!)

My Team in total spent a bit over $1000.00 total.  Seems in line with everything else.

The point of GISHWHES is to have fun but it also teaches valuable       skills of teamwork, getting folks to think out of the box and to       accomplish things that they never would dream to be possible.  These are skill sets that one can use in life.  Also the hunt encourages doing random acts of kindness. 

Who do the fees benefit?

 Misha has a charity he founded called “The Random Act" it encourages people to do daily random acts of kindness in their lives to change the world for the better.  The entry fees help to partially fund the charity.  I       believe in The Random Act and it is one of the organizations       supported by my Charity; "The Hollywood Charity Horse Show”.     

As a madman, crazy guy, social media genius in using celebrity for       charity I salute Misha Collins! 

So after reading this, if you think you have what it takes to be a GISHER(what those that do GISHWHES call themselves) and don’t mind insanity and taking a week out of your life then maybe next year’s GISHWHES hunt is for you.  If you want to start doing random acts of kindness now, head on over to http://therandomact.org and see what’s going on there.

Will I do GISHWHES again? 

I have all year to think about it.  Let’s see how my team fares this year. 

BTW, today, August 20, 2014 is Misha Collins 40th birthday!  I’ll leave you with an image that will make sure you never forget him again.  It’s another of my team’s entries.  Imagine what the task was! ;-)

Misha, waiting for you to call me and tell me I won! ;-)

GISHWHESing away, Bill
