rave: my peeps!

yes, i'm am speaking about those sugar coated marshmallow objects that delights easter eggs and baskets. personally i like them...they are even better if you poke a couple holes in the packaging and then wait a couple weeks to consume. they are also fun to stick in a microwave.

so let's combine that wonderful childhood memory plus another great memory...dioramas. remember those? science projects of the solar system, ecosystems, and such? I remember having to do a diorama book report...just don't remember the book...

anyways, the washington post hosted a peeps diorama contest last 2 years. it was so popular, they are doing it again!

here are the basics. official guidelines found here.

1. Think of a scene.
2. Buy the appropriate number of Peeps.
3. Make your diorama using a shoebox or comparable item of reasonable size.
4. Take photos of your completed diorama from several angles. Send no more than two of your best photos as high-resolution JPEG attachments to peeps@washpost.com.
5. Photo submissions are due by 11:59 p.m. March 15, but keep your masterpieces intact. In the ensuing weeks, we'll pick five finalists and send a courier to pick up those dioramas to be photographed professionally and judged in person. We will run photos of our semifinalists and winners on Easter Sunday, April 12.
6. The grand prize winner -- as voted by Style staffers -- will receive a $100 AmEx gift card and eternal bragging rights. Four runners-up will receive $50 each.
