Where the gnomes are...


It is gratifying to me to know that the gnome has indeed begun to roam. So far they have gone to California, Ohio, Washington (other than my home), Florida, Minnesota, Nevada, Canada, Australia and France. I'm hoping this will snowball and he'll see way more of the world than I ever will.

Thanks to all of you who have been good sports and played along (even those of you who have made disparaging remarks about the gnomes boyishly good looking face).

I've added a list on the right with links to all of the sites that have stolen and posted the gnome. I urge you to check them out, especially Shandi's amazingly creative approach to gnome theft. If you haven't stolen the gnome and still would like him, please be my guest and I'll add your link to the list. It could be the rise of the Gnomen Empire.

It must be audience participation week here in blogland. First the story on olive juice now the stolen gnome. Hell of a lot of fun.

I really should check in here more often.

Am I the only one who feels like this "Gnome Outbreak" should include a request for bank account numbers in order to get access to your lottery winnings?

Thanks for the mention Tim. That was a lot of fun. The gnome might show up again on my blog.

Lights, I think that is what is fun about blogging. We can all become a part of each other's lives and blogs.

iridethebus,
You might be onto something there.

Hayden, the night is young.

THE Michael,
Didn't know you didn't know.

Shandi, you took gnome theft to new heights. It will be fun to see him turn up again. Maybe at that hotel with my name in Paris!

He showed up on my blog! And he is freezing his little gnome buns off!!! Help him!!!

Tim ID said...

Yak Attack, Hopefully someone in the Carribean will steal him next. He's really a fair weather gnome.

yak attack said...

As he headed out, he left a photo (see my blog). It looks like he was heading southwest, across the Tangula Shan Mountains. I am worried, as it is really cold out there, and he isn't dressed very warm. I hope someone picks him up quickly!!!

Tim ID said...

Yak Attack, He's a big gnome and he knew what he was doing when he left home. Besides, he's dead to me now.

Oh and he is soooooo good at BBQ's
Little bugga's to short to buy a round can't reach the bar he reckons more likely he left his money in the US.

Tim ID said...

Well smack my ass and call me Sally, the Gnome finally showed up at Whitesnake's place. I'm sure a digerredoo. Ask Mickey.
