Ok. I have brand new Technivorm thermal carafe drip brewer - arguably one of the best drip brewers on the Planet...

Up for grabs.

And all you need to do is write a story (including a digital picture or two...)

or send an audio MP3 - not to exceed 15 minutes in length.

About... a poignant aha moment in your life... that can have a coffee connection... or not. It can be about life. Food. Drink. Travel.

Looking for an emotional bang or a solid belly laugh... or both.

Life is full of ups and downs - grand moments and bad moments.
And your power to win this will pivot on your ability to:
a.) Win votes and
b.) Influence our panel of cynical and jaded judges.
c.) Being a resident of CANADA

Word count: 475 to 575 words.

RULES:
a.) No obvious use of Facebook and Twitter will be permitted (if detected) -- sure, by all means be creative... but be sure to instruct your fan club to be just a little bit more creative than "I VOTE FOR STORY #17!"
b.) Multiple votes from single network or IP addresses will not be tolerated - and I do not care how many people in your office are going to be rooting for you - be creative and get them to vote when they go home!
c.) Encourage your supporters to actually read some of the stories. I have been still been getting votes from the last contest which ended over a week ago (the power of social networking obviously!)
d.) Canadian residents only for this one folks! I do not know who carries the TECHNIVORM in the U.S. - this is a Dutch made coffee maker that is CSA Approved - not necessarily for the U.S. Market - importation could be a nightmare.

Abuse of any of the rules can result in immediate disqualification.

Darn ...

I was gonna go for a ... "I love coffee" and get all my workmates to vote for me. We need a new coffee maker. But I see my dastardly plan has been foiled already. And truth be told, most of my workmates think I'm a little daffed for talking up the coffee forum to begin with, so the two or three votes I woulda got wouldn't have been worth it anyhoo :laugh:

So I gotta come up with something of an 'ahh' moment in my life that may or may not have anything to do with coffee? Well I had a good one that seemed to be poorly place ... or was that placed poorly :dry: not sure.

Gotta put on my thunk'n cap :huh: Life, food, drink, travel, jaded judges, poignant (what is a poig-nant anyhow? will have to look that one up) :huh: Maybe this cap is too tight. I'd better grab another one. :blink:

Ohh .... how long do I have to come up with a pigant ahhh thingy?

Cheers, Guy :side:
