Terrifying Tin Foil Timescales


Fang is just bursting with
excitement to see the Tin Foil
Top Hats and Tiaras
Competition submissions.
He's even practising his best
Mr Burns "Excellent" impression
for the occasion!
 I hope you're all just bursting with ideas for the Tin Foil Top Hats and Tiaras Competition 2015?*

 Well, those of you who have yet to submit an entry/entries, anyway...

 Right! You now have a week—yes, one week—to construct, photograph, and submit your entry to help celebrate/commiserate the 10th anniversary of this blog. I shall need all entries in my 'in box' by midnight Saturday 3rd October.
 Although the likelyhood of any/all of us being awake to sift through them at midnight is highly doubtful.
I'm sure we'll need an early night after the excitement of another week of Strictly Come Dancing!
 That's true. I suppose that as long as your entries are submitted by the time we get up on Sunday morning, that'll be OK.

 Well? What are you hanging around here for? Snap to it!



* Yes, I've changed the competition's name.

    1. Don't worry, Mago. He's not going to be able to submit an entry as Ms Scarlet's stolen his supply of tin foil!

    2. I feel rather guilty about how much foil I acquired... considering how much of it I actually used... there was a lot of wastage. Sorry.
      Sx

  5. Ooh! I wonder if I have enough foil? Maybe I should buy some shares in Alcan...

    1. Or, failing that, I hear Ms Scarlet's considering downsizing her hat - she may have some leftovers for you?

    3. Well, perhaps after all this is over, Ms Scarlet, you can be the holder of the keys to the International Tin Foil Mountain?

  7. Is it limited to top hats & tiaras? And is my entry therefore disqualified?
