Big Blogger, the final vote

This Is Big Blogger.

Voting has now closed, and it is a very close one. In fact, they don't get much closer than this.

After months of blogging, it came down to Hillbilly Mom who last year was runner up, and Cazzie, a new kind on the block to blogging, but someone who has proven she can throw a punch when needed.

So with out further typing, as I don't want to draw this out any longer, I can tell you there were 221 votes in total, and that one vote made the difference. So congratulations to the winner of Big Blogger for 2006.........................

Hillbilly Mom of Hillbilly Mansion

You have won the grand prize of A$100. All we need to do now is work out a way to get your winnings to you.
The final vote count, Hillbilly Mom, 111. Cazzie 110.

And so ends Big Blogger for another year. At this point in time, I do not know if it will be back next year, there is some major renovation works about to happen on the mother site, but stay tuned.

The Swimsuit section.
Find a photo online of what you think is the best swimsuit to show off your blogging persona and explain your reasons.

Big Blogger Needs Help

This Is Big Blogger.

I have come up with a fantastic new invention, one that will change the world. It is called the Zigglefibster. But I can't remember what it does. Can anyone out there help me?

Ok, so I really know what it does, but I want someone to work it out. The winner gets to put 10 votes on their favourite remaining Cyberhousemate. Each time a suggestion comes in, I will give another clue. Anyone Can have a go at guessing what it is.

The only thing I will say at this point in time, is; The Zigglefibster is cutting edge technology, but very hard to power at the moment.

Eviction #9 Final votes

This Is Big Blogger.

The votes are in, and it was a close one.

Thanks for being in the game this long Stewed Hamm, also an honourable mention to the last ditch effort by your penis.
But now it is time to have the door slam behind you, and please try not to get anything caught in it on the way out.

Now it comes done to the last two. The runner up from last year, Hillbilly Mom, and the new kid on the block, Cazzie.
Can the Americans finally pull off a win, or as their World Cup coach said "We are not here to win the thing, what are people expecting?"
Can the young upstart to blogging, who brings a busload of fun to the party show us how it is done?
All I know is, we are in for a big week of blogging, with new challenges set every couple of days. Ladies, you have the weekend off, but come Monday the first of many tasks begin. Good luck to both of you.

Eviction #9 Take Two

This Is Big Blogger.

It looks like the poll has died for this eviction.

So what I have decided to do is keep the poll open for another week, with the votes standing as they were last time I checked the poll.

As annoying as this has been, at least no one got turkey slapped.

Big Blogger Task #11

This Is Big Blogger.

Ok, I have given the remaining housemates a day to get their votes happening, now to get on with the task.
Position Position Position.

This task is all about Position, Position, Position. It is time for you to Sell, Sell, Sell. The Big Blogger House is Going, Going, oh bugger this, excuse me while I turn off the echo HTML.

Yes this task is all about real estate, namely the Cyberhouse. You see next year, the Cyberhouse is moving to a new place. I wont be giving away details yet, all it means is we have to sell this dump.

So Cyberhousemates, you have to come up with an advertisement to sell the Big Blogger House. Point out all the good features, and maybe some of the history of the house. Oh, and one more thing, your real estate business needs to have a snappy name, I like snappy names.

The best entry gets to put up their "For Sale" sign in the front yard.

Late Week Lines

This Is Big Blogger.

Here is another one from last year, thought I would reuse it as an open comment thing this time.

Groaner Lines

What is the worst pick up line that has ever been used on you, or if you really want to say it, the worst you have used.

Leave your comments in the comments section. Sorry, bit Captain Obvious there.

Eviction #8

This Is Big Blogger.

Ok, so last night I went out for coffee and cake after work, and by the time I got home to the Cyberhouse, I was just too tired to do the eviction.

So after a good nights' sleep, and having looked at the votes, it is time to say....

It Is Time To Go.....

Legless In Perpetuum.

Yes Rachel, while you may not be out of the Hell House that is hospital, you are out of the Cyberhouse.

Voting was very close, Hillbilly Mom won with 29% of the vote, and Rachy who was in last place had 20% of the vote. But at the end of the day, someone has to go, so get!

Voting Twist

This Is Big Blogger.

So Scottage has asked if there is a twist with the voting. As with all things Big Blogger, there is a twist.

Last night, someone broke into the Cyberhouse and undertook a crime. That person was Big Blogger. The crime? Well that is something for you all to work out.

You have until Wednesday to work out what it is I have done in the house. Your clues are;
The first Cyberhousemate to work out what the crime is, will get a 20% increase on their overall votes. If someone who is not a Cyberhousemate works out what it is I have done, they get to nominate which Cyberhousemate gets a 10% increase in their total number of votes.

Each time somone leaves a comment, suggesting what it is I have done, I will leave another clue.

This is not a is my BB2 Task...

This Is Big Blogger. Cazzie of I Don't Do Mornings asked if she could put her latest task here. I guess it is some kind of lame attempt to get more votes, but I will run with it. This Has Been Big Blogger.

Big Blogger Task #10
This week, it is time to go back, way back for some. Back to the summer of your youth, the summer when it all began to change.
Thirteen's My Lucky Number!It's Going To Be A Teenage Summer.

Well, as you can see, it was the 80's and it was my 13th Birthday Party. My birthday is in December and so it is Summer here in the land Down Under. After school ended for the Summer break to begin my family and I went to Phillip Island for a holliday. Two and a half hours drive from Melbourne, Phillip Island is a great place to go in Summer. The main attraction was the Fairy Penguins, not termed that anymore as a minority of people think that it is a slight on their identity as a gayperson to call a penguin a fairy, oh well. Times a changin'....
We rented out a cabin as my mum hated to camp with tents and do any of that fun stuff like pee in the bush and wash clothes out of a tub or do the dishes in a tub..not the same tub as you washed in though..of course!!
We had great weather and I swam more than anyone in my family that holliday. I find it ironic to think it now, but my Ange would have been on the other side of the very Island I was on, camping on their block of land at Rhyll. Amazing I reckon...because at age 13 you are thinkin' of hitchin' up with and experimenting with other people in a grown up manner (no, I am not gunna say HAVE A BONK WITH...). Ange was the person I was thinking of !
The most exciting part of the holliday was when there was a fierce storm that erupted over the bay there and cold air clashed with hot to make an awesome display of lightening. The thunder was also tremendous. The roof of the cabin we hired began to lift off, so we went next door to the next cabin. There was a family with 2 children. One was my age, a boy. We sat together and chatted and looked out the window at the storm that was passing over the cabin park. It could have been something special if we wanted it to be..but he was a man's man..if you know what I mean! A what a waste in fact :)
Next morning we all set off to the beach and had a great time collecting shells and kicking about the sea weed that was brought ashore with the storm. Two days later the vacation was over, back to Melbourne we came. With New Years Eve coming up I couldn't wait...I was going to join Air Cadets that January. Mmmmm, nice boys to meet and fun to be had (including bush bivouacs and gliding and weapons training camps..not to mention fun times playing inter-flight sports). :)
IN the next year I went to my first Blue Light Disco..smokes were 3 bucks a packet and even if you weren't a was oh-so-cool to beseen with a cigarette in your hand there at the Blue Light Disco. I got to see Darryl Cotton and Marty Monster who appeared as special hosts of the disco..and our famous Wilbur Wilde came along once also..playing his saxaphone like he was making love to it..which just rocked of course :) WHAM, CULTURE CLUB and MARILYN (Call on the telephone song) were the flavour of the time..not to mention the flourescent GO GO T-SHIRTS aswell. INXS were also a big band for us here of the Aussie talent.
*Some of this story is NOT made up at all..just some of it :)
