In celebration of the third anniversary of my blog this week, a few local businesses have contributed gifts for some lucky (and engaged) readers:
El Cid t-shirts – one shirt for each of three people. You can state a preference for one or the other of these, but which one you receive will ultimately depend on your size requirements and availability (update: one to Eric on Thursday, second to Colin on Sunday, third to Carter on Tuesday).
Three G-Mart Comic Books comic b ooks. Herc #1 that reboots the tale of a now powerless Hercules; Fear Itself Book One where the ancient evil hidden away by Thor’s father is unearthed; and Prelude to Schism that sets up the the X-men’s new home under the leadership of Cyclops (update: gone to cindyetta on Friday).
Three $3 whiskey shot tokens from Longman & Eagle. These are the tokens they offer their out-of-town guests at the inn, but are willing to share with a lucky neighbor (update: gone to Colin on Monday). (Because it may not go without saying, recipient must be 21.)
Three Mad Libs books from Play. Whether on vacation, at a party or the backyard barbeque, amuse yourself and your friends with “A super silly way to fill in the ________!” (update: also gone to cindyetta on Saturday).
Here’s how the giveaway is going to work:
Starting now, comment on/carry on a conversation about (through multiple comments and responses to others’ comments) Peopling Places posts of the past three months (March, April, May) (except this one). (Please be sure to use the same name and email with each comment; the email address must also be valid.)
The first drawing will be Wednesday, May 18, 7:00 p.m. (CDT) (that’s three days from now) when I will randomly select one of the above gifts. For each of the three days prior that you add to the conversation I will add your name to a list (yes, that means multiple opportunities), from which I will randomly select the gift recipient. On the same basis, I will continue a drawing a day at 7:00 p.m. until all the gifts are gone (yes, that means some multiple opportunities for even the same comment!).
I’m looking forward to the conversations.
