I apparently won fifth place in Mark Koopman’s Got Green Blog Hop for St Patrick’s Day. I hadn’t even realised there were prizes going on, to be sure.
And here he posts the winners and it’s got my name on it. Congrats to the winners!
Being in Honolulu, and me in Oz, I seriously doubt I should believe Mark is going to post me my prize – and the Aussie border patrols being like they are, it would probably end up on the custom’s floor, being stood on and sniffed at by a beagle. Aussie’s ‘Border Control‘ are prime-time viewing on the telly over here at the moment, so there might be hope I could find my 15 mins of fame via this prize (cue the need for a new hairdo), but I’m not willing to use that up so wontonly. No, that fame is for my debut release of my book, surely.
Therefore I offer up my prize in virtuality only. I had to look it up, not knowing what on earth Lucky Charms were in the first place. Seems it’s typically American- 1. coat cereal in various e-colours and 2. add lots of sugar too and 3. to make it healthy, add lots of pseudo-vitamins that normally wouldn’t be there. That’ll help that cardboard/wheat stuff go down.
Sadly for me, I prefer a good quality muesli, weetbix, or porridge myself. The worst this family ever does is the once-yearly box of Cocopops. But these Lucky Charms do look kinda cool, don’t you think?
I’ve been eyeing up Hawaii again, myself. I got married and honeymooned there, and want to take my daughter back over the next year now that we are a little closer to it. So, beware Mark Koopman – in the next couple of years you might find me standing on your doorstep with an empty cereal bowl in hand, like some middle-aged fanatical Lucky Charm stalker. I suggest always having some handy, just in case.
