Contest - Mindeemania: Mindee's Best Guesses

I asked Mindee to give her own Mindeemania Contest a try. The results were, um, fun?

So I had a fun idea kicking around in my head. What if I asked Mindee to take her very own Mindeemania Contest to see how well she would do? Would she get them all right? Would her score even qualify for the free membership? I just had to know, and of course, Mindee was willing to give it a try.

Just like on the blog "Contest Results - Mindeemania," the correct answers are featured below in red text. This time, however, the blue text will feature Mindee's reply and score, plus some extra commentary from yours truly. 

This ought to be fun! And be sure to check out the end when I list how she scored and whether or not she would have won her very own contest. Here we go!

Questions
1. Fill in the following blanks with the names of fellow Soles of Silk models who are related to Mindee in each of the following ways:
  • Marcy is Mindee's cousin
  • Mariah is Mindee's cousin
  • Rilynn is Mindee's sister-in-law
Mindee earns 10/10 points - I really hoped this question would be a cinch for her, and thankfully, it was. I'd probably tease her for the rest of her life if she got this one wrong.

2. Mindee has done three different sets themed to which major holiday?
ChristmasSocks (Dec. 2005), Candy Canes (Dec. 2010), & Christmas Lights (Dec. 2015)

Mindee earns 10/10 points - She did, however, ponder Valentine' Day. Ultimately she remembered that she had only done the one set with Emerald for the popular February holiday.

3. Mindee has done two different sets themed to comic book heroines. Name those two comic characters.
Power Girl & Supergirl

Mindee earns 10/10 points - Watching her ponder whether that one comic character was called Wonder Woman, Superwoman, or Supergirl was quite interesting. She did good, however, Supergirl it was. Mindee's nerd points remain intact.


4. Based off the image above, which photo sets inducted Mindee into the following clubs?
  • B 1K Club
  • C 2K Club
  • A 3K Club
  • D 4K Club
Mindee earns 10/10 points - I think she finally hoped onto the site to figure this one out as it was one she left blank until last minute.

5. Although Mindee was the first, and currently only model to reach the 3K and 4K Clubs, she wasn't the first to reach the 1K or 2K Clubs. How many models joined the 1K Club prior to Mindee and how many models joined the 2K Club prior to Mindee?
  • 5 1K Club (Madison, Kellie, Layla, Cierra, & Wendy)
  • 1 2K Club (Cierra)
Mindee earns 5/10 points - While she knows very well that Cierra was the only person ahead of her for the 2K Club, her answer of 3 for the 1K Club was off by two.

6. Part of the reason Mindee's photo count is so high is the fact that she's appeared in numerous sets that are 100 photos or more. How many total sets featuring Mindee have been 100 photos, or larger? And when added up, how many total photos of Mindee's 4,026 does that come out to be?
8 sets/ 856 photosChristmas Socks (100), Football Cards (103), Valentine's Puppies w/ Emerald (113), Soccer Goal w/ Marcy (100), M&M's w/ Marcy (137), Swirl Lollipops (100), The Ferris-t of Them All - Wu's Feet Links feature set (100), & Pink Over the Knee Socks (103)

Mindee earns 0/10 points - Mindee answered 7 sets for 756 photos. That is off by 1 set and 100 photos - which leads me to believe that she miscounted one of her sets that is 100 photos. It's either that, or she didn't count her Wu's Feet Links Feature set, "Ferris-t of Them All," which is 100 photos. If that's the case, I'm sure I'll be hearing about it.

7. Next to Mindee's heavenly feet, roller coasters are probably my next biggest passion. I have had Mindee pose those flawless feet at three different amusement parks to date. How many total roller coasters can be found throughout those sets combined?
16 coasters: (Set 1: 9 coasters) Great Bear, Comet, Sooperdooperlooper, Storm Runner, Trailblazer, Sidewinder, Fahrenheit, Wildcat, & Lightning Racer (Set 2: 4 coasters) Gatekeeper, Top Thrill Dragster, Magnum XL-200, & Wicked Twister (Set 3: 3 coasters) Leap the Dips, Toboggan, & Skyliner

Mindee earns 0/10 points - Since this was an all or nothing question, her answer of 13 was only slightly off. I guess I can't blame her for this one as I had to literally go through the sets and make sure I had the count right as well. A couple of those coasters were only shown ever so slightly in the backgrounds of those sets.

8. The largest ball found in Mindee's Blue Balls set was what kind of ball?
Tennis Ball

Mindee earns 0/10 points - Another all or nothing answer, Mindee's answer of a "Bouncy Ball" just didn't cut it for me. Obviously it was an oversize Tennis Ball. You know, when balls turn blue, they're known to bloat up to enormous sizes - even little balls, like tennis balls. C'mon Mindee, you of all people, should know that. I know I do!

9. Including all the sets I've shot and previewed on the Soles of Silk Blog this year, list every model who has ever appeared in sets/video clips with Mindee. (No need to break them down into set vs. clip - just list all of the different models.)
Marcy, Emerald, Cierra, Mariah, Rilynn, Noelle, Reese, Rein, & Kelsey

Mindee earns 8/10 points - Mindee named 8 of the models above, but failed to name Noelle.

10. Mindee's pretty feet have found themselves playing with a number of food products since her debut in 2004. Of the following list, which foods can be found in Mindee's sets?

  • Trix Cereal
  • Candy Canes
  • Carrot Cake
  • Blueberry Pancakes
  • Banana Creampie Pudding
  • Vanilla Wafers
  • Lollipops
  • Cheesecake
  • Peanut Butter Candy Cakes
  • Apples
  • Apple Sauce
  • Candy Hearts
  • Birthday Cake
  • Jello
  • Skittles
  • Flour
  • Gummi Worms
  • Popcorn
  • Bananas
  • Gumballs
  • Chocolate Pudding
  • M&M's
  • Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough
  • Funnel Cake Mix
Mindee earns 9/10 points - Mindee missed only the gumballs, from the set she did by the ball diamonds. She did try to sneak in one I left off the list, which was Valentine's Chocolates. I kept the list, however, to making scoring easier and have an even 10 items. So Mindee, your attempt at extra credit doesn't work.

So, now that you saw how she did question-by-question, her score for this test comes out to be: 62. That score would not have qualified Mindee for a prize and was nine points below the average entry submitted for the contest.

Through my ultra scientific research, I find that Mindee is having trouble remembering just what she's done and who she's done it with. Old age might be a factor. After all, she can't even remember how long she's been modeling now.

"Look Patty," she said in a text message. "I can't remember what I did yesterday and you asked for a recap of my last 10-plus years!"

Clearly, Mindee is losing it. It's now 12-plus years, not 10. It sucks getting old, doesn't it Mindee?

Anyhow, there could be one other valid explanation to why this occurred. It could very well be, that you, like me, love every single set Mindee has ever done for Soles of Silk. You're in love with her and those heavenly size 8 feet. You can't wait for her next update. Her love for doing this comes through in each and every set and many of us have taken notice. All this and more caused her photo count to rise to 4,000 and many of us can't wait for 4,000 more. It's what inspired this very contest to begin with.

So Mindee, I hope you don't take it out too harshly on me for all the fun I poked at you through this blog entry. If you feel the need to turn me into a set of "bouncy balls" go for it. I guess I'll just have to deal with it. It's not like I haven't been for the last 12 (that TWELVE) years and counting anyhow. Love ya babe! Thanks for all that you've done and continue to do.

Contest Results - Mindeemania


Well the results are finally in and this contest saw a good number of people participate. This wasn't the easiest of contests, although people sure cleaned up on some points in the early questions. It was the later questions, however, that threw most people for a loop. And speaking of a loop, the roller coaster question totally killed everyone. No one got that one correct, although one person only missed by one - and I'm certain I know which coaster was missed as only a small portion of its track made it into a photo in that particular set.

Overall, people did quite well with this contest. The average score was a 71 out of 100, with each question being worth up to 10 total points. Originally, I wasn't going to give out partial credit, but I quickly found that by not doing so, it grouped everyone with similar scores. So what I did was take questions with multi-part answers and awarded partial credit for anything answered correctly. I also deducted points if items were answered incorrectly. Please see each question to understand how it was scored. The red text will show the correct answer and the blue text, how well everyone did on that particular question and an explanation of how it was scored.

Sunday's Shoot - Alice

By this time every year the weather in this region is getting chilly and the sun is going down extra early. Although that sucks, it usually doesn't affect my photo shoots much. This is the case due to the fact that I generally shoot so much of my work in the warmer months, and shoot a lot of it. Still, there are times when I get the itch to shoot something new. Today was one of those days.

Earlier this week I sent a few photos of a location I found on Google Earth to Alice. The spot I found showed an old, abandoned train bridge passing through an archway of another train bridge. These bridges passed over a large creek below and it just looked so scenic. Alice asked me if I wanted to schedule a shoot soon and go there.

At first I told her that it has been too cold and the sunlight abysmal these last few week. She agreed and we left it at that. As the week progressed, however, I gave it more thought and decided that hanging out with Alice and doing and quick shoot would be great. I hit her up and asked her if she was still up for a shoot. I left the ball in her court. If she thought she'd be warm enough, or if she even had time, then I'd pick her and we could go shoot. She said she was down and that's how today's set came about.

It took a little longer than expected to get to our location today. Needless to say, this wasn't a place in the middle of town. We had to go down some long, winding roads in the middle of nowhere. We went over a one lane bridge, and even got detoured from a road closure. Even with all that, we soldiered on and finally found our bridges.

After I found a place to park, we walked up onto the abandoned bridge (seen in the image below). Sadly, however, there was no way we were going to get on it. Although there was a path leading up to it, it was just too dangerous. There were wood beams covering the bridge, but the spaces in between were a straight drop down into the rocky creek below. The beams were also not too sturdy, probably due to the years of weathering that has taken place. Oh well, we tried! Down to the creek we went instead.

After taking the worst pathway along the creek possible, we finally found a number of large rocks to set up our shoot. I tried my best to find a spot that would at least show the abandoned bridge and some of the one it passed through. My options were limited as at this time of the day, the sun wasn't positioned in our favor. We made it work, however.

Alice and I did a quick shoot by an abandoned train bridge today.

For the first time ever in a set, Alice started off wearing a pair of boots. I asked her to bring them with her since we might see the turning leaves of fall in the background. Plus, I had told her to dress warm and thought boots would fit the look. Knowing me oh so well, Alice wore them without socks too! I swear, it's like I don't even have to ask or tell most of my models to do that. They just make that call on their own.

Not much needs to be said about how this set went down. We stuck to a larger rock for the set so Alice would have a place to kick off those boots and bare her big size 11 feet. I did most of the moving on the smaller rocks below, often checking to make sure I wasn't going to stick my own foot down into the mud or water below. That's all I needed!

Although the lighting was not ideal today and it wasn't the warmest, we made the most of the time we had and shot yet another set of her size 11's to add to her gallery on Soles of Silk. After the shoot we also managed to find a very unique restaurant inside of an old house/hotel built in 1790. The staff even dressed the part. It's always fun to spend some time talking and enjoying a little bit more time with Alice once our shoots wrap up. One of you said on Instagram (@SolesofSilk) the other day, "She's amazing. Don't lose her!" I don't plan to and am so glad she enjoys doing this so much as well. Thanks for another fun day on such short notice, Alice.
