  1. Fun, count me in. I would not at all mind laying my grubby little paws on some of those items. :)

  2. oh no, i’m a euromutant, what a bust… (had my eye on a cheap item too, the 500 couldn’t include shipping could it? ;) )

  3. How nice. Is there to be a separate contest for those who choose not to succumb to the inanity of Twitter?

    Thought not.

    Mark (who doesn’t use bloody Facebook, either)

  4. Oh, you clever mutants. Finally got me to take a good steamy look around. I’ve bookmarked a bunch of stuff; I’ll have to whittle down what I like best. And now I know what I’m getting my stepmother for her birthday, too.

  5. Meh, stinky US-only rules! :( And I have protected tweets as well anyway, so this was doomed from the start I guess.

  6. Well as someone who has succumbed to the pressure that is Twitter, I must say that I would be delighted to get my chubby paws on the Cavorite Cannon. I have not-so-secretly lusted after it for some time.
