Itty Bitty London--Giveaway!!!


I've been wanting to do this since I got back from my trip to London in September, you see, I bought some extra chocolate over there with the intention to give it to you, my beloved readers! So here's the gag: Answer the question that correlates to one or more of the lettered pictures in the collage and I'll send you some of my favorite British Chocolate. Each picture is taken in London, England and nowhere else--there are no trick questions. Click on the picture to enlarge it.

-- Contestants may use any means to find the answers to the questions, so long as it is honorable and legal (honor to be determined by me)

-- Each entry must be entered as a comment to this post (no email entries will be valid) with the letter clearly typed first, and then your answer

-- Each person can answer for as many pictures as they want, but can only win for the first three correctly answered.

-- Winners will be determined on a first come first served basis, i.e., first correct answer to the picture question wins.

-- Contest is only open to US residents, each winner must be able to provide a valid US address, or the next chronological winner will be chosen.

-- Contest is open for as long as it takes to determine winners for all of the questions

-- I reserve the right to make judgment calls or to alter the rules as I see fit

-- None of this is legally binding, and should not be treated as such.

So everybody, take your time, do your research, and enjoy yourselves because I have some to-die-for-chocolate just waiting to be eaten by you! Good luck! I hope this isn't too easy or I'll be totally embarrassed...

Oh Ralph.

Take a look at this awful thing that popped into my "salemail" email today. Ralph Lauren--what were you thinking dear old man? This skirt is so dowdy that I can hardly even imagine my Grandmother wearing it. Do the designers for Ralph really think that a young hip woman wants a skirt with horse bits printed all over it? I mean even if you like horses! This is right up there with Christmas sweaters. If one of the contestants on Project Runway had sent this down the catwalk, they'd be prime for an "Auf Wiedersehen" from the fabulous Heidi herself.

Almost as bad, is the Nordstrom buyer that actually put that in the store. Honey, two wrongs do not make a right, and not everything that comes from a designer is fashionable. Think for yourself, or hey Nordstrom, hire me!

What do you guys all think?
