Mockingjay contest (UK only - sorry!)

In honour of the Impending Move to Scotchland, I've decided to give away a shiny copy of Mockingjay to one of you good people. Here it is, in all its orangey glory:

So, what do you have to do to be in with a chance of winning?

1. Be a follower of this blog.
2. Live in the UK. (I promise not to be biased in favour of Scottish entrants.)
3. Answer the following question...

If you were a tribute in the Hunger Games, what meal would you want Haymitch to send you in one of those little parachutes? And why? Remember, this could be your last meal, so you'd better make it a good 'un.

The winner will be chosen by me on a whim. (Don't go thinking you can win just by saying the word 'cheese'. That's not going to cut it... probably.) The closing date is Wednesday 8th September.

Good luck, and may the odds be ever in your favour.


  1. Pizza yum. Because it's yummy and it can be eaten cold. Does it help if I say I am 100% Scottish, live in Scotland and love Scotland ;)

  2. Chicken and chips, pizza and a coke. Also triple chocolate ice cream for dessert. And that all better fit in the parachute. Unhealthy I know, but you gotta give a girl her (most likely) last wish right?:)


  3. Well as I am a creature of habit it would be my favourite meal which is bangers and mash and gravy and baked beans LOL. Followed by trifle because I seriously love trifle. I love the cold custardyness of it.

  4. I would opt for a giant pie, one side steak and ale, the other mash and gravy. My reasoning, you ask? It is thus:
    1. I reckon that the hardy crust might protect aforementioned pie from the elements as I roam the arena, should I not be able to finish it in one sitting (an unlikely event)
    2. I love pie

    To drink – something hugely sugary and highly caffeinated (for the energy). Coke, perhaps.

    For dessert: Something chocolaty. No reason. I just like it.

    Did I mention it's my birthday on Thursday? (Not that I'm trying to encourage bias, you understand…)
