It’s all about me darlings! * PRIZES TO BE WON *

May 25, 2006

This is my 387th post (I think. It could be 388th).

In preparation for the heady milestone that will be my 400th post I have been thinking of a plan to make that one special. I was hoping for cocktails and dancing girls but although this is a great idea, it can only be provided via ‘tinternet in picture form which I know is nowhere near as good as something real and tangible.

I thought about inviting all my blogging friends over for a cup of tea and a slice of cake but quite frankly I think only about 5 of my readers actually live within travelling distance so I am afraid that idea was quickly tossed into the file named “ridiculously stupid ideas”.

So instead I have decided to come up with another competition. Woo Hoo. Do you remember the fun we had with the last one? The delights of the “Shit Self Portrait” competition? I loved running that competition and we had loads of entries and it was great. Someone got a prize too! Fabulous.

So here it is. The competition starts today and the winner will be announced in my 400th post. Which, by my reckoning should be around a week and a half away.


It is a quiz called Kelly’s Conundrums.

Click on the link (above or below – I am taking no chances) and have a go at answering the questions. There are only 10 and it is multiple choice so it shouldn’t be too hard. Everything has been mentioned in my blog at some time or another – and don’t be scared to have a go if you are a new reader, you may be surprised how much you have picked up already!

Go on, have a go and you never know you might win a prize. I think we will have one for first place and one for last place (wooden spoon anyone?). In the event of a tie I will think of some kind of tie breaker.

Come and have a go if you think you’re hard enough

Oh and leave me a comment if you are too chicken to take part telling me why!

    I was concerned about giving it a crack, but… don’t… call.. me… chicken!

    My concerns seemed well founded. I’d like it known though that of the few I got right, they weren’t guesses. And I was pretty confident about the ones I got wrong, too.

    I found out that my birthday is one day before yours.

    I didn’t do very well! And I knew some of the answers when it was revealed!

    Must revise, I thought I would have learnt that from school!

    I’m upset I got one of them wrong. The correct answer could have been either.

    “a cross between a 5 year old and a telly tubby. It was once described to me as plummy!”

    I did a search for this after I got the answer wrong and the quote above is from your blog and I picked plummy from your choices but it was the 5 year old and tellytubby answer. I should have gotten a 100%.

    Blimey, I must have a memory like an elephant.

    Well the results of this are particually eye opening!

    Doug – Sorry mate, but the question was worded what do I think my voice sounds like, not how had it been described in the past.

    We have a 10/10 but it is not too late to steal it from him…..get the same and we will have that tie breaker!

    but I’m a newer reader…still reading and enjoying…and learning :0)

    Well, I did pretty terribly on the quiz.. but I’ve been reading less than two weeks! And I still feel it’s a damn shame you didn’t see Serenity for that date.
