Thanks to Carrie Harris's quest to become the Batman eyebrows expert, I checked my webmaster stats. So...people are coming to me for advice on how to make a number 5 cake. I did post pictures of the cake I made for Owen's fifth birthday, along with simple directions, but really...
Here's the book contest. Strange Publications has released Tainted: Tales of Terror and the Supernatural, and I want to give some lucky soul a free copy.
The catch: write at least one sentence featuring one of the words below.
morbid, obstinate, emaciated, grotesque, pestilence, devastate, abyss
(These are vocabulary words for my high school classes; I always present vocabulary "in context" and have the students figure out the meaning.)
Respond to this post with your sentence(s), and I will place your name in a drawing (one time for each sentence). Deadline is this Sunday (10/19/08) at midnight (Central Standard Time - US). I will announce the winner on Monday (10/20/08).
Goofy contest, sure, but I thought it would be a fun way to combine my two passions.
