I’m throwing a contest in order to help my friend, Matt Simberg, win a contest that he’s entered. Contest runs from Saturday, August 1, 2009 through midnight Saturday, August 8, 2009. And what could be better than two winners for the price of one? Before I go into the details of this contest and how we can help Matt with his contest, let’s take a look at what you could win: A Nanny McPhee DVD, an Electronic Catch Phrase game, and a chance for a bonus prize – $25 Target Gift Card!
Nanny McPhee DVD – Nanny McPhee stars Colin Firth and Emma Thompson. For the youngsters out there who may not know who Emma is, she recently portrayed Hogwart’s school teacher Mrs. Trelawny in a couple of the Harry Potter movies. In fact, she declined to play that role in the last two movies of the series because she is making a Nanny McPhee sequel.
Nanny McPhee is being touted as “The New Mary Poppins.” I think it is more like Mary Poppins as told by the Brothers Grimm. The story revolves around a household of 7 very naughty children who have managed to chase away 17 nannies. The widowed father (played by Colin Firth, also of Harry Potter fame) is incapable of controlling his children. And then along comes hideous Nanny McPhee. What ensues is an oddly intriguing, strangely sweet adventure that teaches the children about love, caring, and the consequences of one’s actions. Eventually the children learn that by making small changes in themselves, they can cause good changes in others. It’s a movie children and adults can both enjoy…
Electronic Catch Phrase Music Edition – I purchased this game at Walmart because it was on sale and looked like a lot of fun. This is a group game designed for adults but after reading the box and instructions, it would be just as fun for teenagers or families with kids 12 and up. It requires four or more players. It’s called “the grab it, guess it, pass it game.” Players have to guess the song titles and can choose from 9 music categories. It looks like loads of fun but, unfortunately, I just don’t have groups of people come over anymore so it’s never been played. Requires 3 AAA batteries which may or may not be included depending on whether or not I get my lazy butt to the store so I can buy some. (Although I’ve had this for several months, it’s never been used and only opened to read the instructions.)
I met Matt while we were both performing in the Collingswood Shakespeare Theatre Company’s production of Measure for Measure. Matt’s a grade school teacher who enjoys acting in local theater. He’s good looking AND an all-around nice guy. Matt has entered into the “Male Face of KJP ’09” modeling contest. Not too long ago I wrote a post about his efforts encouraging my readers to go and vote for him. At that time his ranking was 71. As of the writing of this post, he is ranked 10 with 2,859 votes. That’s quite an improvement, but I’d like to help him go even further!
