I Won! I Won!

I don’t remember entering this contest, but somehow I seemed to have won a prize pack for the movie, The Rite, starring Anthony Hopkins.

Among the prizes were a long-sleeve shirt, a knit cap, a leather-bound notebook and a candle. There was also supposed to be an umbrella and a USB flash drive bracelet (according to the letter with it), but they were M.I.A.

The book is cool – it’ll be good to travel with for quick notes. The hat I’ll probably give away to someone, since I don’t wear hats. I might do the same with the shirt. And the candle is disgusting – it’s all black and smelly and it actually partially melted in transit, so it has the texture of sludge. I might try to scoop out the candle and use the votive glass for another candle.

I emailed about the missing items, though. I’d love the bracelet, as that would be great for traveling, too.

    Nah – I’d already decided to wait until cable for this one. I love horror movies, but find most of them are not worth theater prices.

    Congratulations, Michelle! Did winning this pack of goodies entice you to go see the movie? (I’m not a fan of horrors like The Rite, but the genre sure has its fans.)
