Contrary to what Paul McCartney would have you believe, you can not only buy Love, but also ship it

I've decided to make things more interesting this time around by offering prizes. Other festivals are giving away things with a broad range of appeal and convenient, international delivery to the online community, such as internet shopping vouchers. I mean, who wouldn't like an internet shopping voucher? And how simple and economical would that be to arrange?

Then again, simplicity has never been my strong point, and besides, what prize could be more rewarding than Love? Love, in this case, being a rose-petal-and-lime-flavoured, all-natural, gourmet cordial syrup produced in my hometown. Mr Bea and I like to call it "Love Juice" and then snigger a little bit, because we can be immature like that.

So! I will be offering three small (250ml) bottles of Love as prizes for "Seasons" - the Second International Infertility Film Festival - based around the following guidelines:

  • The winners must be prepared to give me their postal addresses. I will not misuse these. In fact, I have trouble keeping track of addresses at the best of times, for misuse or otherwise. You can still enter the festival even if you don't want to give me your address! I just won't be able to send you a prize. Also, I will only ask for your address if I need to use it - you don't need to send it to me all willy-nilly unless you feel really confident.

  • One will be a People's Choice Award, decided by audience poll.

  • One will be a Lucky Dip Prize, decided by pulling names out of hats.

  • I will award the other prize according to a set of guidelines I am yet to establish (suggestions welcome).

With only twenty-six days to go, I hope you'll all be a little extra-inspired by Love.

rmcmzOK, I wasn't gonna enter, 'cause I'm not sure I even know how to make a movie online, but now I may just try to figure it out.

Who can say no to the lure of LOVE?!

Oh bother, that gibberish at the start of my post was my "word verification" . . . see, I am computer impaired!

I have just informed Mr Bea that love juice comes in a 750ml bottle as well as the 250ml one we're used to.

"Wow," he said. "That's a whole lotta love."

He is now playing air guitar.

I wish I could figure out how to post a movie in time, I really want to have "Love".

Ok, I have a couple of movies, but I'm crippled by the fact that any one of my 7th graders could find this and then I'd be fired... so I think I can only submit the nicey nice one... grrr

BUT... If anyone would like to post my movie using Barry White's "Can't Get Enough of Your Love Baby" as the background music for my dancing dildo cam cartoon, you're more than welcome too. I'm certain that one would have been my big winner, but now I'll have to use the sentimental movie and hope for the best. Damn!

Bea, thanks for offering to post anonymously. May try that. Let me work on it. If not, maybe by next year I'll be so rich that I won't have to work and then I can devote myself full time to my tasteless sketches without the fear of retribution.

Here's my official entry. I've posted it up on my blog too.

My fingers are crossed and my toes too! I'd cross my legs, but that would defeat the purpose, right?
