Yummy Scrummy Winner… and a Blu Animation!

Hello lovely readers! Hope you all had a fantastic weekend and a great start to the week!

Before I talk about anything else, I better put you out of your misery and announce the winner of the Yummy Scrummy giveaway.

A piece of Yummy Scrummy will be on its way to one lucky winner tomorrow...

To select the winner, I allocated all the commenters a number (except Dan as it didn’t seem to fair to give him the chance to win his own chocolate brownie πŸ˜‰ ) and then used random.org to generate a number.

I’m excited to say that the lucky winner is…. Ragnhild (Vegan Aphrodite). Congratulations Ragnhild! I’ll be in touch shortly to get your postal address.

Thanks to everyone who took part. I wish I could send you all a Yummy Scrummy! I can’t do that BUT I have got another exciting giveaway planned for next month AND it has a chocolate theme again! I’ll post a note on Facebook/Twitter once I know which week the giveaway will fall in.

Before I sign off tonight, I just wanted to share a surreal moment that I had at the weekend. On Saturday morning, Lil’ L and I went along to the kids club at The Little Theatre Cinema in Bath. The session was described on the billboard as ‘Animation Extravaganza’. Considering the average age of kids at the club is around 5, I imagined that they would be showing a series of short cartoons like Tom & Jerry. I was wrong! Very wrong!

One animation involved a zombie (eyes popping, bits of brain dripping out, blood splattering the pavement) chasing a chicken down a road. Even Lil’ L buried his head into the back of the chair! I sat there in amusement, taking sneaky peaks at the other parents to see the looks on their faces πŸ˜‰

Whilst still inappropriate for 5 year olds (IMO), the next animation absolutely blew me away. It’s by the graffiti artist Blu and is called ‘Big Bang Big Boom’. It’s described as ‘a short unscientific story about evolution and its consequences’. I found it utterly mesmerizing.

Maybe I’m just ‘not down’ with what 5 year olds are watching these days! πŸ˜‰

  1. Lots of kids cartoons had blood and guts violence until the PC brigade decided that even Tom and Jerry was unacceptable.

    Instead I showed my girls The Exorcist and The Omen as the kids in the movie were about their age – seemed a logical. Their skills in corkscrew head rotation and priest-possession are now amazing. πŸ™‚
