1 Year Giveaway: A post where I not only share with you the winners but also your Rafflecopter answers(AND THERE'S A PICTURE OF A TINY BUNNY IN THERE TOO!!!)

Before I tell you the winners let's take a quick look at some of you answers!

What is...the first thing in mind when I say "Muppets":

"Lady Gaga hahaha cuz she wore that Kermit dress"
"A really bad hair cut."
"muppet girl.. which is what a friend's sister used to call me! she said i looked like the hippie band member muppet! :D"
"Bohemian Rhapsody"

"A dog? :D Hha :D"

"Oranges. Is this bad?"  Yes.
"mushmallow (?)" ?

Favourite food you make from scratch:

"My grandmother's recipe for biscuits. *drools*"
"Instant Noodles - I can't cook! :p"
"ahem. my very first prawn aglio olio pasta!" Mmmmmmmmm
"i LOVE to make bread from scratch. Love all carbs!!" Carbs are the best eh?
"peanut butter with raspberry jam :)" Making jam from scratch is no easy task.  I'm guessing the same for the peanut butter.  I salute your commitment. :P

"Ice creaaaam!" As someone who makes her own ice cream everyone should invest in a ice cream maker.  It's soooooooooo much better then that store bought flavored frozen milk.
"Crock pot meals" Crock pots are something else everyone needs!
"Lettuce" Please post the recipe.

Let's try this again.  Who is your favourite member of Take That? Cheat sheet included.

"Robbie Williams, don't ask me why" I wont.
"nick" You didn't even try.
"Based on looks alone, I'd go for Mr. Donald."

"I don't know them; but William seems pretty yummy. :3"
"bad boy robbie williams!"
"I guess the guy named Mark. He looks sad or pensive or something, so yeah, him." Deep.
"I likeorange cuz its my favorite color"
"Donald is hot!"
"Donald because his name reminds me of Donald Duck. GO DONALD."
"I'm going to say that TRULY his name??"

"mmmmmm Jason!"
"dunno...based on looks alone i guess donald"
"just me :P"  Are you trying to say you are a member of Take That?

Favourite Musical.

So this question was littered with Hairspray, Wicked, Phantom, Les Mis, RENT and Cats(I'm almost positive it had the most).  And not one Starlight Express.  The touching story about trains...who fall in love. If that doesn't win you over it also has a character called CB the Red Caboose.  He is described as "A two-faced psychopath who causes disaster wherever he goes."
Anyways here's what you guys said!

"This is a Swedish one: Kristina fran Duvemala"
"YESSS!!!! Andrew Lloyd Weber forever!" That's not a musical but I'm sure if you wrote it up he would gladly produce it. I mean he is the mastermind behind starlight express.
"Not Rent. I saw it in Nashville and I didn't appreciate seing the girl's Hoo Ha when she leaned over and mooned the crowd. We were on the third row."
"oh, well... does Opera qualify as musical? if so my fave is Rigoletto (there even is some dancing too ;D)"
"Yes, but they can't be overly musically. My favorite musical would have to be Sound of Music if you can even call that a musical." That's probably the epitome of a musical.
"urinetown" I have done this show, it is amazing.
"Disney On Ice"
"One Direction" The musical?

And the last "question" I gave no instructions.   Just wrote Benedict Cumberbatch.

"He's so flawless I CAN'T TAKE IT"
"Reminds me of Mozart haha" Fraternal Twins.

"Looks like a rabbit" Identical twins.
"sexy holmes"
"I do believe you mean, Benedict Timothy Carlton Cumberbatch." I'm sorry.  I feel like I have offended you.
"Yummmmm! But weird. But YUM!" My feelings on tofu.
"Sherlock, my sexy lurve..."
"He definitely looks nothing like I imagined. Dommage." Wrong.

"I DONT HAVE THE BBC!!! IT IS NOT FAIR! I WANT TO WATCH SHERLOCK TOO! NOT JUST WATCH THE EH SO SO AMERICAN 'ELEMENTARY'. I also wanted to answer the Wikipedia entry, because I do love his full name: 'Benedict Timothy Carlton Cumberbatch (born 19 July 1976) is an English actor. His most acclaimed roles include Stephen Hawking in the BBC drama Hawking (2004); William Pitt in the historical film Amazing Grace (2006); protagonist Stephen Ezard in the miniseries thriller The Last Enemy (2008); Paul Marshall in Atonement (2007); Bernard in Small Island (2009); and Sherlock Holmes in the modern BBC adaptation series Sherlock (2010).' I don't really know what you wanted to know. Maybe nothing. Maybe you should delete my entry. I don't know, but all I do know is people better stop talking about how wonderful the BBC Sherlock is, because I CANNOT WATCH IT AND AM VERY JEALOUS!!!" I looked it up.  It also airs on PBS.  I HOPE THAT HELPED!!!

Thank you to everyone who entered!  Hopefully we will be having another fun giveaway in the next couple of weeks.

*Robyn would like to add that you are great because you mentioned Nick Cave in your essay. Robyn has a lot of emotions and all of them are Nick Cave.


  1. Your giveaways are the best! The questions and answers just kill me. I mean not literally, but I'm sure you figured that out. :D

  2. Congratulations to all the ladies who NAILED IT! Loved the answers!... Don't worry Fantasy Fire, you will be mine one day! Lol

  3. Thank you so much, I'm chuffed! Replied to your mail.
    Some of these answers are brilliant, every contest should have questions like these :)

    1. Oh yeah, and Robyn, Nick Cave really is awesome. Especially when he's covering Leonard Cohen. And also when he's not. So always, really.

    2. ESPECIALLY LIVE. I got to see the Bad Seeds on Saturday, it was amazing!

      His "Tower of Song" is terrific.

    3. OMG, really? Jealous! Well, he's coming here in summer and I'm all over it.

  4. Haha one of the answers was mine. Looks like a rabbit was the first thing that popped into my head! I'm dying!

  5. Oh my gosh, I had no idea your giveaways were so fun! Please have another quickly, just so I can answer some of your questions. :D

  6. Thanks for the info on the PBS airing of Sherlock! We DO have PBS!! Now I'm gonna have to figure out how I can find time to watch it...hooray!

    Oh and I 'heard' Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds a couple weeks ago at SXSW. Unfortunately we were about 100 people back in the line and didn't get into the venue until after his set. Meh. Yeah Yeah Yeahs were great, but we REALLY wanted to see Nick Cave.


    But thank you for the PBS tip!

    1. That is so unfortunate! I hope you get to see him soon...even now at 55, he's still got hella stage presence.
