42 (Day 14)

Welcome to 30 days blah blah blah. Who the hell came up with 42?! Seriously. Who? Click to see the remaining brilliant ideas on the list of themes.

And here are all the other people participating in this challenge: Ziva, MikeWJ, Mo, Meleah, nonamedufus, Unfinished Person, Mariann, Malisa, Nora, LaughingMom, Tanya, Elizabeth A, Kristen , Cheryl, Katherine, and 00Dozo.

Go. Visit them. Then come back and tell us who is responsible for 42. Someone will pay.


Nicky – This was all I could come up with.

Not authorized, channel 42

Not only is this challenge turning me into a lunatic, but it also mocks my lack of channels.

Mike – Almost halfway there and we have to interpret the cruelest of themes. I know what it is. I just don’t know how to depict it. Also, if you squint just right, I think that’s a cow in the center of my photo.

Everything Universe 42

  • Nicky: Mine is very similar to yours. 🙂

    Mike: Are there 42 ice cubes in there? 😉

  • Nicky: Who knew you weren’t authorized. Is that the shoe channel?

    Mike: That’s an amazing picture. But I have no idea what it is.

  • Nicky – Ha! Maybe if you call that number they will tell you that the answer is 42.
    Mike – The empty glass of Pangalactic Gargleblaster says it all.

  • Not authorized?  My Nicky is always authorized.  What in the hell are people supposed to do with 42?

    Mike, are those melting ice cubes?  Are there 42 of them?  Where is the cat?

  • What is the deal with the number 42??? If  a person asks Siri on the Iphone 4S, what the meaning of life is….she answers “42”.

    I think you should call the number and subscribe so we can all see wha that channel is…it isn’t porn is it???

    Mike, really interesting picture…it may take me 42 minutes, no..42 hours,…oh wait…42 days to figure out the connection to the theme….unless of course it it the brand 42 Below vodka in a glass.

  • Nicky, is HISTA channel one of those ‘restricted’ channels you’re probably too young to watch?

    Mike, I see an elephant but for the life of me, I can’t find the cow.

  • Nicky – Good one!

    Mike – Is that an empty rocks glass with ice on the bottom?

  • Cadeaux

    Well, that was different. 

  • Mike, you’re a genius, and my hero. Great photo.

    Nicky, was this taken late last night as you flicked madly through channels trying to think of what to photograph?!

  • Nicky, you still have cable?  Netflix changed my life.  And my expenses!
    Mike, I just see Ziva’s lips.

  • Nicky:  I have no words.  It’s just so, so …


    CheesyMike:  I don’t know what it is, but it’s an interesting shot.


  • Nicky, OMG, there is a channel 42?? And I don’t have it!?? My life seems so empty suddenly.

    Mike, you drank an entire glass of Pan-Galactic GargleBlaster? Holy hell, I’m amazed you’re still alive! Can’t say I can see the cow, though… Do I need to turn the screen upside down or something?

  • Mikewj

    Nicky: I don’t get channel 42, either. Not officially. But if I tie some tin foil to the cable, and then twist the knobs on the cable box just right, every once in a while I can catch a naked boob or two through all the static. It’s almost more thrilling that way, to be honest.

    Mike: That’s a cool photo, literally and figuratively. It makes me thirsty. I’m not it has anything to do with 42, but on the other hand, it may have EVERYTHING to do with 42.

  • That was my goal. For it to represent everything. But I was so tired…so very tired, that I couldn’t formulate my “artists statement”. I ended up with a description that’s both vague and obtuse. Anyway, it’s the universe and everything. In a glass of gin.

  •  Yes I did. Except here on earth, GargleBlaster turns into ‘gin’, and it becomes very weak. Again, I was dead tired last night. The ‘cow’ is in the center. You sort of have to rotate to the left.

  •  It’s my interpretation of the universe and everything. And it was delicious.

  • Me too. It’s the red, right?

  •  Finally! Someone who ‘gets it’!

  • MalisaHargrove

    Nicky, clever, clever! We girls have to rely on our electrical thingamabobs to find our 42s. I used a clock. You used an annoying tv screen. Call HISTA and get authorized. I think you should be authorized at all times. You and your shoes. 

    Mike, what ‘cha drinking? Are there 42 ice cubes in there? No. Oh, maybe there are only 42 drops of  your alcoholic beverage left. Wait. who said that your drink is alcoholic? I did. I said it. If you are trying to figure out a photo for 42, you are drinking alcohol! See what Michael and Ziva do to us?

  • You’re close enough, they’re both mammals.

  •  Yep. That is literally what that is. On top of a candle.

  • You’re right about that.

  • I did not know about 42 below vodka until now. Now that would have worked beautifully. Instead you got my vague description for an equally detached photo.

    Excellent graphic as usual, Cheryl 🙂

  •  Yep, that’s ice. Dobson is right next to me. He was bad earlier though. He got into a plant and I had to punish him.

  •  Yes yes…that’s what I was aiming for…mostly….:)

  • It’s my feeble attempt at depicting the universe and everything. In a glass.

    It could happen.

  •  I think there were six, but you know, 4 + 2…so we’re good.

  • You’re talking about the photo, right? Please say yes… 🙂

  • Works for me.

  • Whaaa? But yes. 🙂

  • Dufus, Dufus, Dufus! If there was a shoe channel, do you really think that I would not be authorized???

  • This theme has been more than enough. I think that I can live without making that phone call! 🙂

  • I don’t mind not being authorized, hon. I mean, seriously, channel 42 is so last year! 🙂

  • Yes, the meaning of life is 42.  Channels or ice cubes or whatever, it doesn’t matter.  It’s just 42.  

  • Hmmmm, I have no idea if it’s porn or not. Now I’m tempted to call and find out. 🙂

  • Yes, that’s right, Cheryl. I’m too young. Bless you. 🙂

  •  Thanks Meleah!

  • Not last night. Early, early this morning. Like 2:30 am. I really, really hate this theme.

  • Honestly, Nora, I don’t watch enough television to switch to Netflix. My cable is bundled with my phone & internet, so it doesn’t cost very much at all.

  • Isn’t it, Dozo? Isn’t it just… 🙂

  • Apparently, there is a channel 42. Don’t feel bad, though. I don’t have it either. Well, I do, but I’m not authorized to view it. I think we will still manage to go on. 🙂

  •  Dude, you do know there’s porn on the Internet, right? Or so I’ve heard…

  • Thank you Malisa! I won’t call them though. I think they should just authorize me on their own. My shoes and I deserve it. 🙂

  • MalisaHargrove

    Anyone who can wear those shoes should be authorized to do ANYTHING!

  • 😉

  • True enough but mine has a trunk. Last time I looked, cows didn’t.

  • Nice!

  • xoxox

  •  But what is the question, Pinklea? How many gin and tonics is too many? What’s playing on channel 42?

    Sigh. We may never know…
