The October Contest is Here! (But Maybe I'M the One Who Needs a LOST Calendar?)

AS OF 4:15 PM CENTRAL TIME ON 11/5/09, THIS CONTEST IS CLOSED. ANY ENTRIES SUBMITTED FROM THIS POINT FORWARD WILL NOT BE CONSIDERED.

THANKS TO ALL WHO ENTERED, I HAVE MY WORK CUT OUT FOR ME DECIDING A WINNER...


Yep, I know it's November 5th. But I'm still calling this the October Contest. Because it's my site and I can do whatever I want, so there.

The hiatus has been flying by, hasn't it? Before we know it it's going to be January 2010, the month of Lost's return. So I figured that this might be a good time to give away a 2010 Lost calendar -- either the wall-hanging kind or the page-a-day kind -- it will be the winner's choice.

What do you have to do to get it? Give me a high-level, tongue-in-cheek prediction about the show's final season. TO BE CLEAR: I'm not looking for something that might actually happen on the show, nor will I publish anything that's spoilery. I'm thinking along the lines of,
"2010: The Year Vincent Finally Decides He's Had It with All the Drama and Takes a Bite Outta Someone's Ass."

You know, just silly.

Uninspired entries like "2010: The Year Lost Ends" (duh) ain't gonna cut it, my dear friends. Don't make me publicly shame you!

I want to get the November Contest up sooner rather than later, so I'm going to limit this contest to somewhere between 30 and 50 entries, assuming I even get that many. I'll add a note at the top of this post, and in the comments section, when the contest closes.

I hope to have a winner announced within a week, and then get the next contest up before I leave for a tropical island that is unfortunately not THE Island on November 20th. (On a semi-related note, last Thursday was the one-year anniversary of my Oahu encounter with Terry O'Quinn and Michael Emerson. Ah, the memories.)

I better repeat the rules, lest someone yell at me because they didn't understand the deal:

- If you don't want a 2010 Lost calendar, please don't enter. There will be no other prizes offered for this contest.

- This contest is open to anyone in any country as long as it's a country Amazon.com ships to for less than the value of the calendar itself. Otherwise, it's just kinda silly.

- Only one submission per person. Anonymous commenters obviously cannot win, so please put enter in a name for yourself if you want to be considered.

- Only entries on this blog via the comments section below this post (before I announce the contest is closed) will be considered -- Tweets or Facebook comments will not. There will be Facebook and Twitter-based contests in the future. I think. I hope?


Are you ready to help me fill in the blank?

"2010: THE YEAR _____________________"

GO!

UPDATE: AS OF 4:15 PM CENTRAL TIME ON 11/5/09, THIS CONTEST IS CLOSED. ANY ENTRIES SUBMITTED FROM THIS POINT FORWARD WILL NOT BE CONSIDERED.
