Seeing as I am such a sucker for anything that is ‘free’ and involves a contest and writing and dialogues for movies, Aneela’s tag came as gift from movie heaven to a woman sitting and twiddling her typing fingers with acute writers block. Yup. Writers block so acute that I’m actually going through web portals and news sites to drum up some angst about some issue so I can come in guns blazing and write a post that rattles everyone’s ears off. Or given one reads the posts, eyeballs would be more accurate. Its what I have been doing since the morning. The five minutes I give myself to write my posts is long up, and I have moved from news sites, by osmosis to the Louis Vuitton site the courtesy of which I now have deposited around a liter of drool onto my keyboard which impedes speedy typing.
This here is what I have to do:
These are the rules:
Here is the first contest for “May I Hebb Your Attention Pliss”.
1. On your blog, provide a link to this page. (http://greatbong.net/book). Embedding the above picture in your blog would be nice but not needed.
2. Then write down your top 10 Hindi movie lines or top 10 English movie lines (You can do both if you want. Only one set is required for the contest). If you cannot think of top 10, make it top 5. Cannot think of even 5? Make it top 3. No problem. Only restriction: no two lines from same movie. This done to make it fair for other movies so that they dont get swamped by Gunda or Loha or Sholay.
3. Tag five friends to do the same.
4. Come over to the comment-space of this post and post your blog’s link so I can go and read it.
Remember: Before starting the tag, paste points 1 and 4 on your blog so that the rules are available to anyone who wishes to pick the tag up from your blog.
What if you dont have a blog? Put your “Top list” in the comments section of this post and tweet the link to your friends (No need to tag specific people). Please use #MIHYAP so that I can pick it up. No twitter? Link to your comment from Facebook/Orkut status message and add me as a friend @Facebook or at @Orkut so I can see the message. [Prefer Facebook if you have accounts in both places]
Prizes: Two prizes will be given. One prize will be the post I like the most. The other prize will be a random drawing among everyone who picks up the tag. Note a blog entry will be considered valid only if a link to http://greatbong.net/book is provided AND 5 people are tagged [They do not need to pick the tag up for your entry to count though], a “comments-in-RTDM” entry will be considered valid only if the link is tweeted with #MIHYAP tag or posted as status message on FB that I can see.
And what’s the prize? No it is not an iPod, iPad or [insert fictitious prize item here]. Prizes will consist of a copy of my book “May I Hebb Your Attention Pliss” which will be sent to the winner once it is published.
Note: Very important. The prizes will be delivered by Harper Collins ONLY to addresses within India. If you are outside India, you would need to provide them with an Indian address.
And here I go:
