Over 100 Posts!

I just realized I dashed past the 100th post without even noticing. Well that's no way to run a blog, now is it? In celebration of this event, I have a contest in mind. The first one to provide the correct answer to the question I pose will win a prize. Since I can't afford to buy anyone anything (sorry, but I'm barely making it as it is), the prize will be your choice of the following three things:



1. A guest blog spot here, with whatever topic you have in mind. I will shout your name to the blog gods, and you will suddenly be very famous.



2. Free editing/beta reading by yours truly on a work of your choosing. I am quite proud of the fact that I'm a damn good editor, and I'm more than happy to help you out with a second pair of eyes.



3. An in-depth interview of you, your works in progress, your already published books, whatever, by yours truly. As in number one, your name will be emblazoned here for all to see in all its glory.



Yes, this is a bit of silliness, as are the prizes perhaps. But hey, if I can't have fun once in a while, what good is it? Without further ado, here is your contest question:



What World War II movie farce involved a cast of French Underground soldiers named after various desserts? Bonus points if you can name them all. Oh, and try not to cheat by googling.



Cast your ballots now. Operators are standing by to take your answers.

The only thing that springs to my mind is "Allo Allo"

...anyways, couldn't resist commenting. Congrats on the 100 Blog Post and the contest. The prizes might be silly (though I don't really think so) but as always it was a fun post to read.

TereLiz said...

LOL, Top Secret!. LOVE LOVE LOVE that movie. How silly can you get? Yeah, yeah!

Lesse, Chocolate Mousse was the only one named after a dessert, right? One was Deja Vu, (Haven't we met before?), there was Latrine, Escargot, Avant Garde, Detante, Montage...

I think that's all I can remember.

Great movie, but more importantly, way to go on your 100th post!

Woohoo, congrats to TereLiz. I purposely put in the "misleading clue" regarding desserts to make it a bit harder, but obviously it didn't confuse her one bit. Not only do you get your pick of a prize, you get bonus points for remembering so many. Nice job.

Congrats on the 100th post my friend. Keep up the good work and we look forward to many more from you.

TereLiz said...

Tricky, tricky!!
But what you didn't know was that I am tricky, too! I never forget a funny sounding French word that might really be a resistance member in disguise. Sacre Bleu! (Was that another one? Now I need to watch the movie again!)

As usual I'm a day late and dollar short. But I did know the answer.

TereLiz said...

emailed you! Check your junk, I usually seem to wind up in there. :p

Travis, isn't it a great movie? Do you remember what "Hillary" means in German? ;)

Cindy said...

Lol, I had no idea about the answer. What a fun idea for a contest, though :D

Breeze said...

I knew I knew it and couldn't come up with it in time! I was determined to remember without google and by the time I did I was too late!

Breeze!

Aw, I could've won this if I'd been on this morning! I would have chosen the beta reading. Just so's you know Eric!!!! :)
