Evan's winnings

evan.Normally, it takes me a few weeks to hand out prizes for Midnight Sun contests. But Midnight Sunner Evan jumped at his chance to claim a Midnight Sun wicked wicked awesome awesome prize pack for Naming That Bar.

Evan took home a custom Land of the Lost metal lunchbox, with DVDs of the entire TV series inside, as well as William Shatner's autobiography and a book about roommate quarrels called I Lick My Cheese.

As you can see, Evan was quite happy with his winnings. 

He did, however, ride his bike to The Sun, and I'm not sure how the heck he got all that junk home. Then again, Evan does have the skillz to pay the billz.

I love the original TV series "The Land of the Lost". Holly Marshall was my first crush. I made my wife watch it for a whole day on Sci-Fi recently. She was not a fan. I did cringe at the terrible special effects that terrified me as a kid. That having been said, Evan, if you can't make it through season one, let me know and I'll make you an offer.

I will try my hardest to watch every episode, I've been thinking about including it in some sort of Awesomely Bad media/movie party in a few weeks. After which time, all offers to exchange the DVDs for beer and/or pancakes will be accepted. (I'm keeping the lunchbox forever though)

Big ups to ace reporter Ms. Scharper for giving me a tour of the newsroom and providing me with a large paper bag to store my treasurez in, I had to bungee them to the back of my bike to make the excruciating 1.5 mile journey home!
