Ninjamas is just around the corner and the marketing onslaught is in full attack mode.
Everywhere you turn, new and shiny toys are being offered as the “ideal gift”. So much geeky goodness. But like many, I can’t justify the HUGE expenditure on myself for SOOOOOO many geeky things. I keep dropping anvil-size hints to others to buy them for me!
Which got me thinking – how can I help my mere minions to score some nice geeky gift in time for Ninjamas? A competition of course!
But what type of competition? Well, funny story to that. It came to me not long after a visit to my GP (Doctor Harry) last month.
I was sick and had hit ‘Code Green‘. And I wanted to be better. As in, quickly and efficiently better because I was heading to PAX Australia and didn’t want to be the Icky Genius Mum.
Thinking I was being funny, I said, “Wave your magic wand and make me better.”
He replied, “I’m just a Doctor.”
I said, “No. You’re a wizard, Harry.”
Straight face, he said, “Don’t be ridikulus.”
And yes, it took me a minute to process what he said. I was sick, remember. But I’ll admit – I was outplayed by the doctor (which is another funny story for another
Fairly straight forward. The prize is THIS:
It’s a sweet linen Harry Potter cushion cover from the Pillow Factor (about $20 – insert not included). You just need to give us a funny Harry Potter pun or story in the comments below (the comment section of this blog post). I will then randomly pick from the genuine entries below (how about I draw it out of a Sorting Hat?)
Make sure you tick the box about receiving emails if someone replies to your comment. If you win, I will contact you either through the comment or Facebook. If you don’t respond in three (3) days, I’ll redraw.
Come back here on 21 Dec to see if you scored the cushion cover.
Pretty easy, right?BTW: Previous experience with a competition over at GeekMom has introduced me to the world of Comp Bots. If I find your entry is a comp bot (and yeah, it’s pretty easy to figure out), your entry will be disqualified.
Let the Harry Potter Pun-War / Story-telling begin!!
And we have a winner!
Email me your details so I can post the cushion cover out to you!
