Word Up, YO! Week 11

Last week we sent you, our Associates, into the world to hunt for the sake of the family. You didn’t know what you would face, but you did it bravely.

The winner of the Word Up, YO! Edition 10 Scavenger Hunt gets the rare opportunity to choose the WOW! for Week 12.

It is with great admiration and pride that we say…Congratulations to Amy from The Adventures of JAMC ! You found the most words in the Word Up, YO!, Edition 10 Scavenger Hunt!

In the eyes of the Nerd Mafia, you are now a Made Man.

But wait! We wild and nerdy Dons aren’t stopping there!

We are also making 2 more men. These 2 men are being made for their tremendous tenacity on behalf of the family. These men answered the Twitter call to duty and found the “hidden” WOW! in Hit Man Alyson’s Wednesday post.

Congratulations Lou from SuperIRL and Jenny from Like Swimming!

In the eyes of the Nerd Mafia, you are now Made Men.

Please contact one of the Dons to received your code for the official Nerd Mafia button.

Good luck to all! And maybe next week, you’ll be “made”, too!
Throw your pocket protector in the ring this week by following the rules below.
* Use the Word of the Week (WOW!) in a post as many times as you legitimately can.
* Use the WOW! correctly in your post, we’ve included a definition to guide you on this journey
* Include the Word Up, Yo! button somewhere in your post
* Write a post with the WOW! and link it up anytime during the week the linky is open (Sunday-Friday)
* Link up below to your relevant post, not your blog home page please
That’s it! No mandatory follows, no mandatory comments. Visit as many other linked blogs as you can.
At the end of the week, the Nerd Mafia will decide on a “winning” post. We’ll feature the winning posts with the new word. A new Word of the Week and featured post will be published every Sunday.

Now, without further ado the Word of the Week is:

adj. Moderate to inferior in quality; ordinary.

You can also play at my partners-in-crimes’ sites, the other two members of the Nerd Mafia:

Liz from a belle, a bean and a chicago dog

Kristin from Taming Insanity

And so it goes…

    I was thinking about entering the WOW this week, but you just reminded me how mediocre I am, and would be even more so as a made man. You should just make me an honorary made man cuz...oh I don't know, cuz you want to? :)
  2. oh... an easy one!! ;)

    Sorry - I entered twice on accident. Wanted a different pic and ended up with two :). Just doing one entry though...

    Hope you're having a great day!
  5. Great word... I will try to participate, but like you am recovering from a HUGE weekend and have a couple of other things I'm working on (on the blog front. :) )
