Give me a reason (in Contests)


Godpanda January 31 2006 7:13 PM EST

Give me a reason you wake up. It can be stupid or personal or whatever. If you feel its too personal you can cm me. Whichever i find funnier/ more meaningful wins 50k. Not alot of money to bare your heart for but you can always just bull your way through it. Good luck guys/gals. One per person.

Blarg January 31 2006 7:16 PM EST

Simply to talk and see and be with the people i love.

Thraklight Resonance January 31 2006 7:17 PM EST

If you stay asleep, you'll be trapped into watching the Tom Arnold and Roseanne Barr mating ritual (from back when they were married, of course).

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] January 31 2006 7:17 PM EST

Cause it gets light outside and my sleeping cap doesn't quite cover my eyes?

Maelstrom January 31 2006 7:18 PM EST

Is that a serious question? Really, for anyone who is reading this, the only possible reason for waking up is to play CB; to burn as much BA as possible in the day.

:D

tWIsTEd January 31 2006 7:22 PM EST

i get up because i gotta go to school to lern how to spell correkly

QBPixel Sage January 31 2006 7:41 PM EST

To unconsciously turn off the annoying alarm clock and fall back into bed... happens EVERY morning.

JAFO January 31 2006 7:53 PM EST

It beats the alternative... most of the time.

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] January 31 2006 7:57 PM EST

So I can spend another day wondering why I got out of bed?

Cause I have to pee?

Nope none of the above

I get up in the morning because if I didn't you'd all die, not sure how or why but I'm absolutly positive that without my constant supervision the world would collapse...

[T]Vestax January 31 2006 8:17 PM EST

The truth? In the simplest terms. Dream food often leaves my in wanting. Occasionally my mind decides to order out.

{CB1}Lukeyman January 31 2006 8:31 PM EST

Why do I wake up in the morning?

In the past few days i have wondered this myself, what keeps anyone going?
Is it the passion of two lovers? the loathing of two haters? or what?

Well, I went to the streets to find out.

So little girl, why do you get up in the morning?

Girl: So's I caen geet my appy duce!

Well isn't that compelling evidence.

What about you? why do you get up in the morning?

Goth: So that I can wreek havoc on my fellow man.
Interesting....

So I asked one more person.

Guy: Because -------------

Wow.. That explains so much!

And now.. My reason. Why it's to play Halo 2 Online, or Play Carnage Blender.

csraven January 31 2006 8:58 PM EST

the only reason i sleep is to refresh myself for the next day of trying to find out why i woke up...

smallpau1 - Go Blues [Lower My Fees] January 31 2006 9:37 PM EST

to eat PBJ's

Angel of Death [Hell Blenders] February 1 2006 10:21 AM EST

cuz im hungry

[The Wretched]Freekie [Lower My Fees] February 1 2006 10:44 AM EST

I dont wake up, *snore* i have the *snore* ability to sleep *snore* and play *snore* at the same *snore* ... *snore*

QBBarzooMonkey February 1 2006 10:53 AM EST

Coffee and Pop Tarts. Sometimes Cap'n Crunch. Then, since I'm up anyways, I might as well finish the day :)

QBSefton [Black Cheetah Bazaar] February 1 2006 11:00 AM EST

Uncertainty

The reason to wake up is you cannot be certain about what will happen. The more you invest into uncertainty the more chance you have for it to occur.

It could be the best, worst, happiest, or saddest day you will ever have, but if you are not awake for it, you will miss it.

Just waking up, increases uncertainty, but leaving the house, or spending money on a chance gives you even more chance to meet you new soul mate or to meet your maker. So go invest in some uncertainty today!

PirateKing February 1 2006 11:01 AM EST

Why do I wake up? Because I have to report to the overseer in the "coal mine" that is my soul crushingly dull job in order earn a few pennies to pay the freaking bills. :P

Caedmon [Revenge of the Forgers] February 1 2006 12:34 PM EST

Generally because a cat has stepped on my head.

Godpanda February 1 2006 1:59 PM EST

One per person.
Did a few people that read that line lol? But its okay I guess. As of right now here are the people that are semi finalists (though im hoping more people enter).
caedmon
sefton
blarg
novice
twistedness
If this is not your exact name get over it. Also for anyone thinking novice is unfair because he put more then one forget it. Both of his were good so dont try to undermine the decision. I am thinking of getting a judge or two to help me out on deciding the best. Unless of course you all wish to split the prize lol.

Zoglog[T] [big bucks] February 1 2006 2:01 PM EST

I find it so much more difficult to stay asleep, my body has an internal alarm clock which makes me wake up 6:30 on the dot every morning.

trigun February 1 2006 2:03 PM EST

i wake up in the morning because i can..if you coudnt..you'd wish you could..so be thankful every time you do..you get to live another day..^_^

RAMPAGE February 1 2006 5:11 PM EST

Sleep??? What is this sleep thing of which you speak?

Godpanda February 1 2006 5:13 PM EST

RAMPAGE thats kinda like wasting my time. And it wasn't funny. Please dont do that. I dont mean to be harsh but I wanted this to stay at least reasonably serious. By the way Pit{LongLiveCB1} is added to the finalists. He pmed me one which is pretty good so there you go.

YNM February 1 2006 6:03 PM EST

I wake up to make fun of you..didn't you know that.



Just joking.


I wake up because I love to experience the new things of tomorrow, and what happens next.

Godpanda February 1 2006 6:05 PM EST

im adding YNM to the finalist list. If the bloody spell check will let me through lol!

maulaxe February 1 2006 8:22 PM EST

momentum.

Xiaz on Hiatus February 1 2006 8:24 PM EST

I wake up in the morning, because I appreciate that I can. Why? Because I believe that one day eventually, I won't be able to wake up (death) and that I won't be able to see and be with the one/s that I love and care however much I tried.

And that, my friend, will be the greatest shame, so i shall awaken this day, because I'm not sure if I will be able to tomorrow. But if so, I can look back and know that I spent my time well, and have no regrets because I did what I could, when I could. :)

QBOddBird February 1 2006 8:25 PM EST

I wake up because I am compelled to help others enjoy and find the meaning in their lives, as that is the meaning for mine.

House February 1 2006 11:10 PM EST

Because my disgruntled and irritable bowels are forcing me to get out from under the oh so perfect temperature covers, to once again go forth and lay down some serious and disturbing bowl thunder, followed quickly by even more disturbing bowl splatter. The relief is enormous, the stench is all encompassing. It's not long before I here the plaintive wail from my beloved wife.
" Honeeey !!!....flush....pleeeeaassseee!!" she sleepily exclaims. How she puts up with me I'll never know. At this point the cats won't even enter the room......

Guardian of the Glen February 1 2006 11:33 PM EST

I get up in the morning for my family. For my Husband who loves me endlessly for my son who struggles through the night to live, For my other two children, to keep life as normal as possible. To love them as much as I can for as long as I can.

Flamey February 1 2006 11:50 PM EST

i wake up to go to school obviously!

Godpanda February 2 2006 7:55 AM EST

im getting alot of good ones. Too many for me to decide on my lonesome. I am gonna get a few trusted people to help me decide one who wins. Entries can still be made of course but time is running out.

skydemon February 2 2006 11:19 AM EST

bitten by mosquitoes...

AdminShade February 2 2006 11:22 AM EST

phone rang, friend called if i would like to come and eat some Döner Kebab. :)

Zoglog[T] [big bucks] February 2 2006 11:28 AM EST

I wake up in the morning not intentionally but because I am destined to come across shams like this as it obviously must be if my previous entry did not make finalist while YNMs did, thankyou I can now go back to sleeping before waking up to find another.

Godpanda February 2 2006 4:35 PM EST

I find it so much more difficult to stay asleep, my body has an internal alarm clock which makes me wake up 6:30 on the dot every morning.

first of all not funny. And then its not deep.... sry man it bit. Normally im not so harsh but sense you question me I tihnk you deserve it.

Darkwalker [Jago] February 3 2006 12:30 AM EST

i am dreaming.... dreaming of jessica alba.... she, me and a bed type of dream.... then suddenly..... i wake up.... why??? .... wth!!..... then i realise.... because ........ because ....... jessica is snuggled close next to me...... on MY bed.... so i guess i wake up.... to make my DREAMS COME true.... lol

Zoglog[T] [big bucks] February 3 2006 12:34 PM EST

Then you GW are an idiot since you could not even sense a small amount of sarcasm and humour in my last post and assumed that I questioned your judgement so now I do question your judgement and challenge you to a duel! /me carps GW using a carp inside of a dueling glove.
I challenged you first before you go challenging me to be the first to challenge!

Godpanda February 3 2006 4:02 PM EST

didn't sound sarcastic and now I wonder about your intelligence.... I mean you thought sarcasm would some come through in type. I decline you duel on the grounds that if I killed you it would upset the few people who like you. Now get off my post

Fat Rob February 3 2006 4:49 PM EST

I get up each morning because I can. For a simple human, time is not guaranteed. Every minute you sleep, is another minute wasted in what could be a very short life. Live is to be lived and every second should be treasured as if it were the last. In the next 20 minutes, you could step off a corner and be hit by a bus, ending your life instantly, so why waste any of your precious moments sleeping? Every morning I wake up is another morning in which I know I am alive. Maybe I won't wake up the next morning, but I will at least have woken up for this one, ready to face and experience the world.

Zoglog[T] [big bucks] February 4 2006 5:43 AM EST

"sarcasm would some come through in type"

I'll take sentence orders for 40 please Alex.

Halcyon February 4 2006 6:08 AM EST

I wake up every morning, in the simple hopes, that today, will not be a repeat of the things I should learn from in the past. Perhaps today is my day, to find my purpose, to enlighten someones day. If I make someone smile, or think more on something, that makes their own life seem worth living. Then I have found my daily purpose.

All I ask, is that I effect atleast on person a day. It's what keeps me going. Granted, my life isn't the best. But if I believe that my own meaning of life, is to help others along the way, to whom they are supposed to be, then ... getting up that morning, was well worth it, and tomorrow, should only be better. As tomorrow, I will wake up with a smile on my face, knowing yesterday, I made a change, and today, could only be better.

Godpanda February 4 2006 11:12 AM EST
