Five an a half hours left of my relentless competition entering mission and, as I’m leaving my desk now, I’m pretty sure I may have just entered my last.
Over the past year, I’ve been a chilli eating contest noob, almost famous for cutting bread animals on national TV, been chased by zombies around Leeds city centre, made a music video, entered over 1500 competitions, had 37 wins…
Thanks to you guys who were part of/followed my journey, you’re the bee’s genitals. *sniff* I’m getting all teary, it’s undoubtedly been the weirdest year of my life… and I’ve bloody loved it!!
Win #37 (fb) Lefay Engraving - Joker Earrings
With all of the Batman hype kicking about, my ears will be decked in uber topical and super awesome.
If it didn’t require two hands, I’d now snap you a picture of my most awesomely terrifying Bane impression.
Sadly, it does.
You’re missing out.
Thanks, Lefay Engraving!
Snap away - for I am now photo ready!

Go North East asked:
How many sweets are in the tub? - Closest guess wins a week of free travel!
After using a miniature desk mop to clean up the sweet-lust induced drool pool from my keyboard, and remembering the teachings of Derren Brown, I used a combination of deep maths and averaging crowds to work out the answer.
A week of free North East travel surely awaits.
So, last.fm randomly threw up a bit of Hadouken! I was busy having a bit of a design-dance along to Mic Check and who should I receive a win message from?..
Win #35 - Hadouken! - Ministry of Sound gig tickets.
I strongly suggest that you have a listen and let me know if the same thing happens to you!
The Memorial Awareness Board:
Sponsored by StoneGuard Memorial Stone Insurance, the competition encourages photographers of all abilities to submit their images of memorials both “then” and “now”. The winner will receive£1000 from the sponsor.
All entrants must submit two photographs one of then and now in order to be valid. The “Then”photograph should represent memorials as history, and the “Now” photos must be a modern headstone. Photographs can be either black and white or colour. A panel of experts including a professional photographer and a designer will judge entries.
I like it when creative competitions come around a second time.
I have knowledge.
Knowledge is power.
I have an almighty knowledge power up!
Like a Mario star or Sonic speed shoes.
During last year’s competition, a friend had suggested that I check out Highgate Cemetery. I didn’t have the time then, this year I did.
With the most disastrous previous year fresh in my mind, I headed there early, minimising the chances of adding a sequel to my 2011 Horror B Movie.
When I arrived, I realised that there was very little chance of this happening.
I couldn’t actually get in!
£7 to get into a Graveyard?!?
While the ghost ride may be slightly more realistic, it’s hardly Alton Towers.
There was only one option - stick my noodle arm through the gates and snap away like a little scenery thief.
At least you can make out objects in this year’s entry…

Never one to shy away from talking about my occasional pyromaniacal tenancies…
I set my friend’s crotch on fire with a home made flame thrower once.
Was pretty bright.
Bet no one’s given THAT answer yet.
Win #34 Garnier - Ambre Solaire Sun Lotion
In sunny holiday times, or on the rare occasion that the sun shows it’s face in London, there is always a sun lotion negotiation situation between my boyfriend and I…
Mark: ‘The sun’s hotter than you think today, you’d better put some sun cream on.’
Me: ‘Nah, I’ll be fine.’
'Actually, I won't. I'm a Geordie. Geordies are pure rock. Rock doesn't burn.'
————- 2 HOURS LATER ————-
'Jenna, your nose is looking pretty pink, you should stop being stubborn and put cream on.'
'It's not. It's your eyes. They're sun burnt. You're seeing pink!'
————- 7 HOURS LATER ————-
'ARRRGHHH!! What happened?! I've turned into bacon!!! My skin is dropping off!!! Oh no, It's the Swine Flu!!!'
'I DON'T GET SUN BURN!!!!'
Thankfully, the bottle has a precise little pour hole, which is perfect for filling up the water gun required to apply this product to my defiant chops.
I know, my blog has been starved of posts.
Truth be told, I have been entering, just not really keeping you in the know.
I actually have a little pink book of scribbled entries to post.
I have this thing that keeps getting in the way of fun stuff… it’s called work.
You probably know exactly what I’m talking about.
Anyway, if you’d prefer to skip the life story, move directly to the next paragraph. I do love my job. The company that I work for have just launched a new lash fibre product, which means that I’ve been a lone graphic warrior tearing my way through a beastly tirade of packaging, info graphics, PR releases, social media banners.
Competitions were ploughed through with little style.
With such competition neglect, I was surely unlikely to win anything, except…
Win #33 - Employee of the quarter - A selection of prizes
Ha! Turns out I wasn’t neglecting competitions at all, just intently focusing on one.
My suggested prizes are as follows:
1. Chelsea spa day.
2. Give the gift of life and adopt Scooby the dog.
3. Photography experience with a pack of majestic wolves.
The word is swaying me.
I want to be barefoot swathed in shimmering fabric and bells, dancing around a woodland area, my majestic wolves galloping by my side.
I have the option to choose an experience of similar value/equal majestic-ness.
The wolves are going to take some beating!
