so jealous :( i never win anything.
what's the biggest/best thing you've ever won? (if anything)
Got a free Wolves shirt.
Better than a kick in the bollocks, I suppose...
at a conference (fill out an email form for a company, get a prize draw). Already had an iPod so I gave it as a present to my girlfriend. Forgot it had the company name engraved on the back. Whoops.
I won it at my dentist office.
My father had to come in to take me home so nobody mugged me.
I just find it massively cringy and I'm sure I'm not alone.
Only problem was they didn't announce it till after the premiere. Gave me a poster instead. Not even free fucking tickets.
Afternoon tea for two at the Randolph Hotel in Oxford.
A bottle of Baileys in the work Christmas raffle a few years ago. Still not drank any of it.
Good work, Virgin.
From cosmopolitan. :)
Oh, and a long weekend ski holiday for two. And an art kit. I'm quite lucky really.
it was a pretty cheap ski holiday though. This is probably price order.
like bottles of wine and gig tickets in pub quizzes and their associated raffle ticket-based prizegiving. Wild Beasts tickets the other year were pretty good. The rest of the tickets have been shite.
Pretty sure I didn't even enter the competition.
Did you do lunch?
pretty happy with that!
What is a hot dog giveaway?
in 1990, i was six.. it was a Quavers competition, save up enough of these tiny stickers and send them off.. ate a lot of Quavers
i forgot i had entered a competition, it just turned up at my house, i had no idea why. My Mum then thought i had used one of her cards to buy it online and i got in trouble....thanks Official Dreamcast Magazine!!!
which I proceeded to drink along with a half bottle of Blackheart rum and promptly fell 30ft over my bannisters and cracked my skull like the putrid egg it is, and went into a coma. So, with hindsight, that win may have been a bit of a false economy
BBQ'd the lot.
Trip to Nashville and the JD distillery. Pretty fucking pimp.
I used to win loads of gig tickets off planet sound on teletext cos I don't think anyone else entered
one of the competitions on here
I won a signed Liars CD from here.
on the h&m kids website.
where the second hand was a rotating basketball.
A set of Irn Bru headphones in a cassette case.
Tickets to the premiere of the Daniel Day-Lewis/Fergie from the Black Eyed Peas musical 'Nine' (unclaimed: I thought I'd won tickets to the oddball sci-fi animation '9').
Meltdown by Ash from the local paper, and Richard Hawley tickets in the Metro
won on xfm from Gary Crowley whilst skiving from a data entry summer job. As summer jobs go I thought Crowley could've done so much better.
have a nice little replica terrocatta warrior as well as my badge
Some assorted wildlife related stuff in a bag from Cadbury's Wildlife Bars by completing the following:
"I like squirels because...."
No idea what I wrote
to see chapterhouse once.
when i was about 9, i won a "rare" beanie baby.
