  1. We've finally reached the 50th Stop What You Are Doing, and to celebrate that special milestone, we have an appropriate theme to accompany it: Milestones! This will be a tad more complex than our usual themes, in that you will change your name to anything that has a milestone anniversary (5th, 10th, 20th, 50th, 100th, etc) this year. This can be a person, movie, show, book, song, game, etc, you can get creative with it. (Example: Mean Girls turns 20 this year, so you could be a character from that or the movie itself) If you need to do research to see what has a milestone anniversary this year, go ahead.

    The SWYAD will begin May 10th and end May 17th. There will be a Cards Against Humanity, Turntable party and SWYAD themed Pictionary during it to celebrate. Anyone who participates will also receive 500 doubloons and 100 experience points.
