I am a competition junkie.
Oh yes – it is my one vice.
It all started back in the seventies when I won a Stevie Wright album.
My first WIN.
One year the rumour went around town that I had won lotto. I wish !! It was New Year’s Eve and I did win a couple of hundred dollars.
Me being me…I got a little excited, which The Son mentioned at kindergarten. We had just bought a new (new for us at least) car, and boy were we popular all of a sudden.
There have been a few wins over the years. Socks. CD’s, books, that sort of stuff.
I gave it to the kiddywinkles who had a great day tripping around.
Every little win gives me a thrill. Well…nearly every little win,
A week ago a parcel arrived in the mail. I had won an official merchandise package from a movie. Unfortunately I had just been to see the movie with The Daughter, and it sucked !!!
I have to say it – the movie Breaking Dawn stinks. And this from a woman who likes the other three movies and the book.
Health and Longetivity Warning – DO NOT GO AND SEE IT !!!!
It is two hours you will never get back – and you’ll regret having wasted them.
Yesterday I found out that I had won a book. Not just any book though. One I really loved all ready – and the author (Kenneth G. Bennett) is autographing it for me.
How cool is that !!!
I recently wrote a review for The Gaia Wars as part of a blogaganza.
I like THAT word. My initial reason to take part was the gaining of a bunch of books to read, second was – okay I’ll be truthful – the chance of prizes.
But to win something that I loved, that has made my week.
Christmas come early.
It is Stevie Wright all over again.
