Hello, hello! Greetings from the land of Olympic Anniversary celebrations! Wow did I have a wonderful time yesterday! I am off to do a few more Olympic Anniversary-related things this morning, before settling in to watch the special (and see myself on national tv-how weird!) this evening. It's on at 7 p.m. in BC, so if you are anywhere else in Canada, check your local listings!
Meanwhile, if you'd like to share in the fun, I am having a GIVEAWAY!! I have lovely Olympic goodies to share with 4 lucky winners.
Here's the scoop:
Comment on THIS post the following:
1. How many Olympics has Canada hosted? (Bonus points if you can name the cities who hosted!)
2. Tell me where you are from!
3. If you retweet on Twitter, repost a link on your blog or Facebook you will get an extra entry. (Show me where you've linked!)
4. Make sure there's a way for me to contact you if you win!
1st prize is Olympic mascot MukMuk wearing the coveted red mitts that just about every Canadian owns. This particular little guy came from the breakfast I went to yesterday with John Furlong, so he comes with his own little story of the Games!
2nd Prize is Miga, another Olympic mascot. She's wearing a green 2010 scarf. She came home with me from the official Olympic warehouse, which is a very cool place!
3rd Prize is a set of Olympic pins. Miga carries the Canadian flag, Quatchi is carrying the Olympic flag and Sumi (the Paralympic mascot) is carrying the Paralympic flag. These are a great collectors item and I have a set just like it for myself!
4th Prize is a Quatchi change purse. (The zipper is along the bottom edge.) My friend Sharon can actually fit her camera in hers. It would also fit a cell phone...or any other little treasures you want to keep in it.
All the prizes are authentic licenced official Olympic mechandise-no knock-offs here! The contest will close on Wednesday, Feb. 16th at midnight PST and I will announce the winners the next day.
Back soon with pics from yesterday's festivities!
