I almost never do giveaways on my blog because it's rare that I'm offered a giveaway that makes sense for "my readers." Some of you will remember when I was given the chance to give away a $600 bike? Yes? And that was fine and fun. But then also there was the time I gave away about $40 worth of booze just because I felt like it and GUESS which giveaway had more entries?
That is why I love you all so very much.
So! When A&E approached me asking if I wanted to give away a DVD prize pack (worth $100) that includes THE DIGITALLY RESTORED BBC PRIDE & PREJUDICE MINISERIES (that's the one with Colin Firth as Mr. Darcy, folks) I was like YES, YES I DO!
But maybe I stipulated that I needed one of the copies, too.
Yes, I own the old one.
Of course, there's more to this prize pack than just Colin Firth as Mr. Darcy, but, well, priorities. Honestly, if you've never seen the whole mini-series, it's totally worth it. It's a great rainy-Sunday marathon. In fact -- and no offense to Ang Lee, here -- once you've seen Jane Austen NOT shoved into an under-two-hour format, it's hard to go back.
I watch this mini-series from start to finish at least once a year. It's so well done, so well acted, so fun, I don't know. I just love it.
And it makes Colin Firth in Bridget Jones's Diary that much more hilarious and fantastic.
So um, okay. Here's the deal:
- Leave a comment below. You can say anything you want. Maybe you have some thoughts about Mr. Darcy in his wet shirt, for example. I dunno, I'm just thinking off the top of my head here.
- Please include your email address in the comment. This way I can contact you if you win, and theoretically you won't enter 900 million times.
- Please comment by Wednesday, May 26 at 5 p.m. PDT.
- I will choose a prize-pack winner at random. Yay!
The prize pack includes (details on each of these are below):
- The Complete Season One of Rita Rocks
- The Complete Season One of Sherri (btw? I watched some of these and she is really funny!)
