TFOB Stuffed Penguin Contest

FOR HOOK ME UP! ONLY -- INTERNATIONAL CONTEST

I went to the Tucson Festival of Books and all you're getting is...well, a lot!

First off, there's a lovely, black, sleek yet sturdy Penguins Classics totebag. And what's in that tote? Lots and lots and lots. Buttons, bookmarks, keychains, a water bottle, and more. Books. Signed books. Books by Erin Quinn, Erin Kellison, Carrie Weaver, Holly Lisle and more! And, you know, a book from me might slip in there, too...you never can tell! ;-D

Contest runs from Thursday, March 17th through Sunday, March 20th. This is an international contest -- as long as you're on Planet Earth, and are on Hook Me Up!, you can enter and win. You must have a deliverable address, though - no P.O. boxes. Prize may take 2-4 weeks to ship; it may take 6-8 weeks for international.

So, Hook Me Uppers!, answer me this: What stuffed animal would you take with you on a trip to visit the A-C Home World and why?

Love, Gini

ADDENDUM: Some of you haven't actually entered the contest yet. Check the last Hook Me Up! emails to ensure you're properly entered entered. (Yes, I'm saying this 'cause several of you who've commented are NOT actually entered as of yet.)

I would take my stuffed Cthulhu because his soul-sucking goodness makes me smile. Plus he's round and I could throw him in defense of myself if necessary. :)

I would take my stuffed puppy, because, for some reason, it reminds me of one my dogs. I even ended up naming it after my dog!

A stuffed Alligator. So that they could take turns practice wrestling it for me, in mud, naked.

I would want to take a stuffed slug. It would remind me of my boss at a previous job.

I would want to take a stuffed Dodo. That would be in honor of your mention of Charlie Sheen in the "Duh, Winning" post.

@Amber - I not certain I'm parsing your entry properly. They're wrestling the alligator and you're in the mud, naked, as the prize?

I'd take my stuffed white tiger as it would remind me of my family (husband and kids), but with all of those hot A/Cs, maybe I'd want to forget. ;)

Do they make stuffed Martinis? They should. Creator???

Ok, I would bring a little stuffed pig. Because short pudgy things are cute too. Maybe the A-C hotties will think so too.

@Amber - I actually have a stuffed
alligator, ok not me but my kids. My DH had to buy it for the kids because it has real nostrils.

Like Qwill, I'd take a stuffed Cthulhu. But I'd probably choose one that I crocheted so I could show that I do have at least one skill. I don't think the AC's would be impressed with my librarianship--I'm sure some of their gals went for library science :)

I am taking my Pink Bunny. Why? Because it holds the secrets to the universe, washes my cloths, takes my son to school, feeds me, bathes me (oh yeah it does!) gives me money for sexy boots, AND never talks back or asks for anything in return.

SO I would show all the AC's how we do it here on earth and train them to be the same. Brilliant! *takes a bow*

I know, I know. It aint easy being this sexy. ;)

AND Sheep rule Matt drools

I would take a stuffed cow. That way I would be reminded to check and see if A-Cs have ChickFilA franchises.

I would take Stir the penguin. He is my cute little penguin that also makes for a good throwing object if needed. I would bring him to help remind me of my gf who gave me the penguin and to try and help me not pay attention to the "dazzlers".

@Katie, seriously you are still saying that sheeps rule and I drool? Im so happy right now that im eating lamb chops for dinner.

I would take my old stuffed Strawberry Shortcake that I've had since I was a baby. It would be comforting and give me courage to face the A-C home world. :)

I would take the (stuffed) BAMF doll from the x-men comics. Because 1) a Nightcrawler stuffed toy is super cute and 2) it helps send the "I like to snuggle" vibe.

I would take my Teddy Bear named Dr. Data <- named after Data from Star Trek. He has gotten me through many things in my life. I love that bear and he still holds a place of honor in my room.

@Becky, what does your stuffed strawberry shortcake look like? just wondering.

What stuffed animal would you take with you on a trip to visit the A-C Home World and why?

Definitely my stuffie pug named Quill (from Quilleran of the Lilian Braun Books hehe). He's like the traveling gnome, but more squishie. He's even travelled to Scotland with us. :D

I'm surprised no one said they would want to take an angry bird! LOL ...

@ Rich: why would you want to take someone that reminds you of your old boss to such a great place. Planning on throwing it into space, wishing it really was your old boss?

I would bring my Winnie the Pooh ... 'cuz he's a tubby little cubby all stuffed with fluff. He's Winnie the Pooh ... Winnie the Pooh .... Willy nilly silly old bear ...

Oh, and 86 the "poo" jokes. They've been done...

@Dragon: a stuffed strawberry shortcake would look short and fat and pink!

I would take my bumble-bear. She is extra special and has travelled with me around the world already. So going up and beyond to visit the A-Cs would just top it.

I would take my Teddy Bear named Quarter Roy I have had him since I was 3 and we have traveled the world together.

@Mrs. Chuckie, I want a stuffed angry bird!! Just not for AC.

@Katie, can I borrow your pink bunny? Can I get one of my own and will it cook dinner?

@JoAnna, I have a stuffed croc but, hey, big teeth are big teeth, right?

@Jessica, If we can't have the live one, I'll take stuffed. Or blowup. Whatever.

@ratkin683, I'll certainly be a naked mud covered prize, but I had them naked in mind.

@Amber, I was thinking blowup too. ;) Of course, the real thing would be much better.

I would take my stuffed dragon so that I have something that enlarges that I could ride and around and if anyone give me grief I can have it blow fire at them lol.

@Mrs. Chuckie - We always told the old crank that he needed to get out more. This way, I could leave him out.

@Amber - Big teeth aren't always a bad thing. Nothing wrong with a little nibbling.

I would take my large white Gorilla w/ red boxing gloves. You mess with me, you mess with him. He is the stuffed incarnation of my husband who is the human version of a large silverback gorilla, and said hubby won my white boxing gorilla for me at the state fair. All the Aliens would love him, just like me.

Well, I would bring my stuffed troll. I know, I know, it's not an animal, more like a mythical creature...but then he's been my sole protector for years now and I could not let him down and out of this journey. His name is Klaus Roald, and because he is a troll he can eat all of your stuffed animals (or aliens, crazy A.C's, super beings etc.) for breakfast. Well, except penguins, cause eating penguins is not nice...

I would take Hoyt!Bear, because he goes everywhere with me (and because I don't have a Baal!Bear)

Hmm...that's tough to decide. I have four I adore, but I suppose it would be my stuffed Sharpei puppy named Momoshiro (Momo for short). He's quite the bodyguard b/c he can stop anyone with dead in their tracks if they look at him as he's so adorable! :)

@Dragon, the strawberry shortcake doll is something my mom made me, it looks like the old school strawberry shortcake not the new one. Pretty much just fabric sewed together and stuffed but I've had it forever.

@Becky, awe ok it sounds yummy. Haha I have food on the mind. Strawberry shortcake would be yummy.

@Joan, "stuffed Sharpei puppy". Yeah just fyi that isn't scary at all. Its cute but i dont know if i would consider it cute enough to stop people in their tracks. Goodluck with your plans to have it stop people.

I would take a stuffed panda! Why? Because I'm sure anyone would look at poor panda confused and not know whether it is a joke, a fantasy toy or what, surely such animal cannot exist in real life! And pandas are too cute :-D

Thank you for another fab contest!

Of course I'm on the Hook Me Up! VIP list ;-)

@Stella, why would they think that a panda can't be real? Oh and if the stuff at the bottom of your post is your attempt to make sure your entered. Then FAIL, that is so not the right way to make sure your entered. To take a phrase from Dren, WHACK get to the end of the line.
