Amazon Beedle the Bard contest

I totally almost forgot about Amazon's contest! Today is the last day to enter for the trip to London to see the copy of the Tales of Beedle the Bard. Submissions have to be in within a couple of hours (by midnight Pacific time). I figure my odds of winning aren't great, but they are infinitely better if I enter something, even crap, than they are if I enter nothing. So I wrote something in about 10 minutes.

I answered question 2: What sports do wizards play besides Quidditch? Here's my entry

Harry clung to the tree limb and stretched his arm. His prize was just out of reach. Carefully he slid forward and stretched again. He smiled when he felt the edge of the jobberknoll nest. He quickly grabbed a feather, dropped to the ground, and Disappareted.

No one else was at the house when Harry popped in. A quick check as he dropped the jobberknoll feather in his cauldron revealed that he was still ahead of Ron. He glanced at the list of items he still needed to get for their scavenger hunt. Where to find an ashwinder egg?

It is 99 words so barely in the 100 word count. I know it isn't some exciting and creative sport, but there is only so much I can do when I forget all about something and only have a few minutes and 100 words. Did anyone else enter (beside mrstater since I know she did)?


What's Taters, Precious?

Oh, a Wizarding Scavenger hunt! That's a great entry!

But if it beats my U-No-Poo birthday song, can I use your other ticket?

Thanks. Hopefully the judges then the voters like it.

I am undecided on who gets my second ticket if I win. I've got two contenders and you actually are one of them.

I feel so special!

You should.

Well I didn't enter, but I've kind of taken it for granted that I will be your guest of choice should either you or mrstater win. Few hours up the road and I'm there, plus I know all the shops and attractions you must visit, and I'm a cheap tourist guide...

Let me know when they call! ;)

Now see my likely plan was that I'd give my extra ticket to mrstater if I won. That would pay to get us both across the ocean and provide a hotel room which would be the most expensive bits. Then we'd just have to work on getting everyone who is already much closer to make the trip to London to meet up. Forget about the Tales of Beedle the Bard, it's all about meeting the friends!

OK, I lied. I do want to see the book, too.

This is completely unrelated, but I found this today and thought of you. Have you seen these videos????


They are hilarious :)
