It Starts With A Can

These are probably the strangest things that arrived at my home today while I was at work …

Nah! I didn’t order Red Bull by the tons (although I do need tons of beer). These empty cans arrived today because I signed up for the Art Of Can event (details here) and was supposed to go collect these empty cans from their office … but somehow I just didn’t wanna take time off from work just to go get them. Yeah … collection was during office hours only. Fortunately I received an email yesterday from them … saying that they’ll deliver the cans to my doorstep (!!!). OMG! I was really surprised they’ll go all the way to … deliver empty cans!

I arrived home to find the pack of empty cans on my desk … as well as a ‘giant can’ of RedBull! OMG! I wondered how hyper I’d be if I gulped down that can but the excitement went ‘poof!’ the moment I held it. It was just a container and in it … a normal sized can of Red Bull … and a … pair of scissors!? Huh? Scissors? They are even so considerate as to throw in a pair of scissors for us to work on the empty cans! Coolness!!!

Hmmm. Now what am I gonna do with the empty cans? I’ve just gulped down the one and only can filled with the energy drink … and now what? I signed up for this because I was curious … and that’s after Noreen told me about it … but I’ve totally no idea what to do! OMG! Deadline for submission is next month and I’ve to find some time to work on something? I do have a very rough idea of what I wanna try doing … inspired by a cartoon DVD that Fitzand was watching an hour ago … but … but … where do I find time to do it? Perhaps I should go try buy a dozen of Red Bull and gulp them down one night … and hope I can stay awake til the next morning to finish my … ermm … ‘artwork’? Hahaha!

Oh … also … I initially thought they sent me some empty cans that are new from the factory … but it turned out that those they sent me were emptied ones. I wonder if those guys in their office were forced to bottoms up the many cans of energy drink for this. Haha! The cans still smell like the energy drink and some of them are a little sticky. Eeeks! I’ll get the maid to wash them thoroughly tomorrow before I try do anything with them.

Honestly I don’t think I can come up with anything good (with my fat clumsy fingers) but for the fun of it … I’ll try my best. If you look at those amazing stuffs that others has done (in their website) … you’ll know why I sometimes feel that I’ll be just wasting my time. Hahahaha!
