Today I'm involved in a totally retarded blog-community building exercise, known as International Hijack Day. What this means is: I'll be asking a discussion question here, and people will be answering it. However: they won't necessarily be answering my question here, and they will also be answering completely different questions from elsewhere.
If you haven't heard of this before, click through above to see the detailed rules. Everyone is welcome to join in! Otherwise: feel free to attempt a discussion of my question here while trying to ignore the non sequiturs that will be going on in the comment thread. :)
What's the most creative thing you've ever done with a pine cone?
(Feel free to just make something up if your real answer is too boring. For the writerly types, feel free to make a Ficlet out of it. :) )
