I’ve got some stuff to giveaway and I figured the best way to do it would be all in one post! I’m like Oprah, except you don’t all win and I’m not a woman, nor black (wait, Klout says I’m influential about Black People so does that sorta count?), nor on a television show… or that overweight (I’m on a diet)… or that rich. So scratch that, I’m not at all like Oprah. I’m just some guy giving away some stuff that you likely want.
First, Lindsey Kelk has written a new book. It’s called The Single Girls To Do List and is available to buy in stores at the beginning of August. But I have a pre-release copy to give away… and it’s signed! Now I’ve read the book(I have my own copy) and actually liked it. You get to know the characters and actually care about the main character, who has a really hot name – Rachel Summers. There’s a breakup and she’s trying to deal with it – well after one last breakup hookup. (Let me add, I always liked those.) So now newly single, Rachel with the help of her friends sets out a ‘bucket list’ of things to do now that she’s single.
I won’t spoil the rest, you’ll have to read for yourself. But, the writing is fun, upbeat and interesting. Fabio never enters the frame… and there’s more than enough talk of sex to keep a simple male mind interested in it too! My only critique is one that isn’t really a critique at all, Lindsey is English and as such, some of the mentions and word choices aren’t really that well known to most North Americans. You could figure it out (or Google it if you really had to.) An enjoyable read for me which was a shock – I only read non-fiction or violent action books or one’s with pictures.
Secondly, Volkswagen Canada and the Freedriving Experience is coming to Toronto on July 22nd to Ontario Place. I’ve got a VIP Invitation for two to give away. As a VIP, you’ll get to drive every single VW car on site through a test track. With an experienced instructor beside you, you’ll get to really drive the way a nice car should be driven (hard and fast with lots of curves)! You’ll also get some VIP goodies and treated as such the entire time you’re there. (The event is free, but the VIP allows you to bypass any line, drive as many cars as you like and as I said other VIP stuff.)
Lastly, I have 12 passes to a two week advanced screening (July 21st at Empress Walk) of The Change Up. For a full synopsis visit – http://www.thechangeupmovie.com - God Olivia Wilde is hot. I’d switch bodies with Ryan Reynolds too… just in general. Gah, guess I better go do my P90x after this. The Change Up comes to theaters on August 5th. Oh, and after the movie, join me at @BostonPizzaYS!
Lots of good stuff if you ask me! So, here’s how we’re going to do it..
Each prize will have it’s own draw. But you can only win once. I’ll draw the tickets first, the book second and the VW experience third. You can only win once. So if your name is called for a movie ticket, you can’t win the other prizes. You CAN put your name into one, a choice of two or all three of the draws though.
Here’s how to increase your odds;
- Add a comment below of which one(s) you would like to win. This will earn you one ballot for each draw. Limit of 5 comments!
- Just tweet me directly with an @reply which you’d like to win, that will earn you 2 ballots, just make sure to include one of the three hashtags so I can keep track, oh and a limit of 2 times for this way.
- Tweet the following (only include the hashtag(s) you want to win). “No one really likes tweet to win contests @zachbussey #thechangeup #vwexp #lindseykelk - http://bit.ly/pN6CxV” (Or just click the Tweet button below.) This will earn you 10 ballots but can only be done once.
Simple? As simple as it gets I guess haha. I’ll do the draw on July 13th!
YOU MIGHT GET SOMETHING! AND YOU MIGHT GET SOMETHING! AND YOU MIGHT GET SOMETHING!
WINNER – Lindsey Kelk, The Single Girls To-Do List
WINNER – Volkswagen Freedriving Experience
