Day Four - Egg Hunt picks up the pace

Good morning. I'm Alicia (you may have seen me popping up now and again) and whilst Denise is jetting across the Atlantic to go to SXSW I'm going to help *shell* out the clues.

We've been so impressed with everyone's clue-cracking skills that we don't think we need to offer any hints this morning. In fact, perhaps we need to make the clues a bit harder, just so you don't get too complacent!?

I must admit that I am a little jealous of you all. I love solving cryptic clues and puzzles and this Egg Hunt seems to be a lot of fun for everyone taking part. The eggspectation of each new clue, the eggcitement at finding a hidden egg and then the eggcellent prizes to boot. But Little MOO seems to have eyes in the back of his head, so no hunting for us MOO Crew-sters. :-( Ah well, the fact that we can't play doesn't mean that you shouldn't, so on to the next round of clues...

Clue for Egg Fifteen
To find the next egg, just heed our input.
You needn't go far to see what's afoot.
Two words you must find, to quench your egg thirst,
Endearment and Surrender are the clues to my first.
Take the first to a reference book to suss out my next.
(A thesaurus, we mean, if that left you too vexed).

Then a very still mouse (now don't go a-clicking)
Is all that is needed, while the clock is a-ticking.
Hovering there, while you count to thirty,
Will summon the egg, now isn't he purty?!


Clue for Egg Sixteen
We blog here, and we blog there.
Our lives our full of blogging.
If you kept a journal of our blogs,
We bet you'd find it shocking!


And finally, the hints, locations and resting places of Eggs Ten and Eleven - the Egg Cracking heroes (both second time 'first-finder' winners!) are:

Egg Ten: Paul Beech, at 11.20
Hint #1: The egg is on our site.
Hint #2: But it isn't on any of our actual pages!
Hint #3: Try typing gibberish for a product page in the address bar.
Still stuck? The Egg was hidden on MOO's 404 page!

Egg Eleven: Fran Tapia, at 11.28
Hint #1: We think you should know what to do with italicized verbs by now!
Hint #2: The first result isn't the site you're looking for.
Hint #3: I wonder if the mention of a 'partner' is important?
Still stuck? The Egg was hidden on Ponoko's blog!

No no no! These are hard! :( I thought I knew just where #16 might be, but there was nothing there. I'm at a loss, and 15 is even worse.

#16's got me stumped. Can't see the egg where I eggspected it (Sorry. Alicia started it!)

#15 was a head-slapping moment when I 'cracked' the Surrender and Endearment thing XD

15 took me a second to figure out, and 16 is not where i expected it to be....still searching

orz these have me stumped.
6th Mar, 2008 12:24 (UTC)
argh... i haven't got a clue where to find these. sheesh...

Is it bad to pool our thoughts together to crack these?
6th Mar, 2008 18:03 (UTC)
I found 15! Teehee
6th Mar, 2008 19:43 (UTC)
I found 15 and 18, but 16 and 17 are giving me trouble.

Especially 16 since I think it's somewhere here. >:|

Found 16 :)
6th Mar, 2008 22:30 (UTC)
can you give us a hint?

I'm having the worst time on 16 and 17. :(
6th Mar, 2008 22:55 (UTC)
if you know the site for 16, perhaps it is the format for the egg that you need to look for.

16 has been a bit elusive, but has popped back out
Hello, Alicia from MOO here.

I just wanted to let you know that earlier in the day egg 16 was playing shy and wasn't revealing himself properly. He's firmly in place now, so do have another scout around to see if you stumble across him.

Good luck!

ugh! what the heck?
16 was in the second place i looked this morning but it was totally not there before
