Vague memories of wanting to go to Roxy afterwards.

It wasn't LSF in Bedford, which still gives me nightmares.
joeymahone to sub-thread
we never need to discuss, just nod at each other to acknowledge it, like the end of Stand By Me.
I've only been to it twice.
A couple of tshirts
An itunes voucher
A trip to the Jack Daniel's distillery in Tennessee
Unfortunately the skateboard had the logo of the crisps manufacturer that I'd won it from printed on the bottom of the deck which meant all the kids at school with their Powell Peralta decks laughed at me. So I painted over it.
Unfortunately, after it dried you could still clearly make out the logo which made me look even more sad for trying to hide it from view. Happily, some kid cracked his head open a few days later and they banned us from taking our skateboards to school! Happiest day of my life
when I was a kid I won four tickets to Thorpe Park from a comic.
maybe a raffle when I was a kid. I tried as well, I entered loads online and won nothing apart from loads of spam. I have often wondered what happens when you win a holiday in a competition. I know some have "plus £2000 spending money" but how is it all organised? Is your every whim catered for and you are whisked away in a taxi to the airport, what if you can't get time off work until a certain time, what about childcare? Sometimes I think I'd rather just have the money and pick my own holiday to take.
Tickets to see Papa Roach, Therapy?, Feeder and Gay Dad at Brixton in a recording for Japanese TV
A sack full of cleaning products in a work raffle (slight comed down after someone told me I'd won a camera, and it weighed a ton)
A Trip to the Jack Daniel's distillery in Tennessee
I had very little work to do and very locked down internet connection. As a result I entered lots of competitions online to pass my time. Won quite a few things, including a motorbike which was nice. £14k salary for the year and then a £6k motorbike on top. Was a sports bike and don't have a licence so sold it for £4.5k in the end after letting my Dad use it for a while.
Regularly win tickets for gigs and festivals etc. in London. Don't think all that many people enter them relatively.
Been entering tons of competitions.
I look forward to my bundles of cash, several holidays, world cruise, a Vespa scooter and pickup truck in the coming weeks.
There are hundreds a day like.
Don't want you entering my competitions, you cunt.
dedicated to links to competitions and any answers associated with them. MSE's good.
I'm bound to win something.
Even if its just a pen from the Glenfiddich distillery or something.
I didn't even look at the competition I was entering. Just entered everything on each of the sites I could find. Time spent deciding whether or not was just time wasted.
I used the application Roboform which fills all of your details on a webpage at the click of a button.
(even though I did one once and won a bottle of alloy wheel cleaner)
If I start doing that, my mates will see what I've been wasting my time doing.
Never bothered though.
Or do you mean writing a book about competitions?
Containing something like a GCSE bitesize backpack, a BBC Sport shirt, a BBC News pen and a mug of some kind. I was quite disappointed, I was expecting something a bit more fun (I was about 13 and won a CBBC quiz).
did you use the backpack..?
I was a bit embarassed of the big GCSE Bitesize logo on it.
but my dad used to win loads of good stuff including
2 x family holidays to the USA (one Florida, one L.A., both with spending money etc)
2 x massive televisions
and fuck loads of smaller prizes like fridges, cameras, saucepan sets etc.
This was years ago though - he hardly wins anything (although he did get £100 the other day) and he much preferred it back in the day pre-internet when it was old skool post entries as far less people bothered to enter.

Only prize I can remember winning was a copy of the Goofy Movie. It was a runner up prize. The winner went to Disneyworld.

Red = music question,
Colours = general knowledge question (the higher the value of the colour, the harder the question)
There are 5 reds, you had to take a colour after each one. Then screw back for the yeller, green, braaan, blue, pink and black.
