Our Alter Egos Are Having a Contest
February 12, 2010
At this point I’m having difficulty keeping our alter egos straight. There’s Big Edie and Little Edie, of course. (Which sounds so much nicer than Old Edie and Young Edie, doesn’t it? It doesn’t?) And there’s those presumed-tranny country singers. (Gosh, I miss them! It’s hard to believe they had the same makeup person as Big Edie and Little Edie.) But there’s also the Problem Ladies! And the Problem Ladies have a deadline! Which means that Franklin has a deadline! It’s a web of deadlines, all dependent on readers’ questions. We’ll take a stab at any knitting question, any query about Method Acting—just lay it on us, whatever you’ve got.
To encourage the questing and questioning spirit of our readers, all questioners will be entered in a contest to win one of the following audio books, all of which are perfect to knit by and would be a nice diversion if they don’t get enough snow in Vancouver. The prizes are:
Twilight. Sexy vampires. If you like that sort of thing. And of course you do like that sort of thing. 12 hours, 51 minutes!
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone.
8 hours, 17 minutes! Jim Dale doing all the voices! A tour de force of the audio book genre.
The Girl Who Played With Fire
18 and a half hours! Clearly enough time to knit all 3 socks on 2 circs!
The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society
A mere 8 hours….sorry. A couple of dishrags, though.
The Lost Symbol
Dan Brown is no slouch at the typing: 17 and a half hours!
Last Night in Twisted River.
John Irving is the champion: 24 and a half hours! Knit yourself unconscious!
The Rules: Leave a comment to this post, asking the Problem Ladies a question, by Sunday, February 14, at noon (New York time). Winners will be drawn at random. The first-drawn winner will have a choice among the audio books, the second-drawn winner will have a choice among the remaining audiobooks, and so forth until they’re all distributed.
Good luck and happy questioning!
