Competition winners

Wednesday, 16 December 2009

Right! The following five people will get a copy of the CD and a lovely Australian book:

Adam ML
Second Ian (that’s the “I’m Still Standing” Ian)
David Sparks (OOH, borderline taste… but I laughed, so you get a prize.)

The following five will get the CD:

Steve I
Mark P
  (I have a feeling those two both won books in a previous competition? They’re too good!)
Romantic Recluse
David Webb (who didn’t answer question 2 but whose question 1 answer was so brilliant that the system was thrown into disarray. David, if you’d only sneaked into a bookshop and looked up the answer, you’d definitely be getting the double prize - as it is, you’d just better make sure your brother is true to his word.)

So you should all be getting an email in the next 24 hours asking for your postal address. If the email doesn’t come by tomorrow, just post your addresses on this thread, they won’t go up on the site. Congratulations and thanks to all for taking part.

Who needs ‘Somebody to love’ when you’ve won a copy of the soundtrack and the Australian version of the book. My life is now complete.

Ian at 9:13 pm on December 16th, 2009 exciting!  Many thanks…I’m ‘standing tall’ now :)

Can someone post somewhere the Australian cover?

AdamML at 10:25 am on December 17th, 2009

Thank you very much! That’s very exciting…

Francis - I’ll put the Aussie cover in a new thread

David Sparks at 3:00 pm on December 17th, 2009

Wow, thank you! I’m going to put it under the tree and forget it’s there; it’ll be a nice surprise in amongst the Cadbury’s Heroes and miniature whisky/flannel/golf sets that I normally get.

In retrospect, I think I would change my answer to Q1 to Pure Imagination from Willy Wonka (Come with me, and you’ll be, in a world of pure imagination….that one) as I used to sing it to my boy when he was a baby and it sent him to sleep every time.

Steve I at 12:03 am on December 18th, 2009

excellent! Thanks for that. Yep, won a book also, on a roll.

Thank you very much for the CD and the Christmas card.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all.
