Here's another chance to win an authentic piece of artwork by my 5yr old son, Kaden. The first person to answer the following correctly wins a copy of this newly created art project by Kaden.
This is a copy of the original, hand-made, mixed-media creation Kaden completed this afternoon - it's printed on 100% cotton, 24lb, white, professional paper using an inkjet printer.
This was a ver-batem question asked by Kaden to me.
Can we watch that movie with the robot with the green eyes that figures out how to use that gun? And with all the aliens? I've seen it before with you and mom.
What is the name of the movie?
HINT: This is not an animated movie.
HINT: This movie is based on a book of the same name written just over 30 years ago.
Use the comment section below to provide as specific an answer as possible - don't forget your name - first name and initial of last name. The contest ends this Friday - good luck - this is a tough one!
The movie in question is from <i>The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy</i>. A fun favorite around here. Kaden is referring to Marvin, the manic depressive robot, who picks up the Point-Of-View Gun and shoots the Vogons making them see Marvin's point-of-view - being depressed. Thus, Marvin saves the day!
Chris will receive his copy of Kaden's latest piece of artwork soon.
I had a lot of responses to the trivia, so I think I'm going to make this a weekly thing with different prizes each time. Check back regularly or just subscribe to the RSS feed to keep up.
Look for the next contest at the begining of next week!
Congratulations to my aunt Alison who won our Baby Birthday Contest! We collected $85 - Alison won 50% of that total. Adam (new baby) won the other half. I'll post what Adam is doing with his earnings a bit later. Thank you all who participated!
Gallery of Adam coming soon, here's a preview:
We have a baby! My beautiful, amazing, brave wife just gave birth to our second child. Adam Jozef Rokitowski - 7 1/2oz, 20in, toe-head born at 3:55a at Tampa General Hospital (geesh). Mom is doing well from her first natural birth (our first child was a c-section), and is feeding Adam right now. It's late - or early - and everyone is tired. I'll have pictures up later in the day. Thanks for your prayers!
Pictures will be up tomorrow - at least some. Meanwhile, we are recovering in the recovery room. The Labor & Delivery rooms are beautiful - large, home-like (nice wood cabinets, cozy... like a hotel room with birthing equipment), and even a bed! Nice! Oh wait... how many fathers are sleeping on the bed as their wives muscle through active labor?! I spent 20 minutes on the bed after our son was born... feet up... quiet... great! By that time it was 430am - BUT, we had already used the room as it was intended - labor and deliver, so it was time to move to the 8ft by 8ft closet to recover. Huge hospital bed and a recliner.
Not much can bum me out this weekend, so in the end, I don't care too much, but this recliner is just not cutting it for shut-eye. That, and when I finally do get to sleep, there's always a nurse hopping in to check on vitals or make sure fathers aren't getting too much rest.
I'm tired, that's all.... the kid is great though - sleeping like a... baby. Maybe even a little too much - Becky is trying to feed him right now and he's conked out. Hoping to go home tomorrow (Sunday).
Ahhh look who it is - the loud nurse that can't focus on one task at a time!
Coooo. Becky says our new kid has the ugliest baby feet ever. They are super wrinkly and squishy.
Otherwise, she's loving him as they lay together and he sleeps while I have Christmas music playing on the compy.
The window next to me has an empty screw hole that is letting a stiff cold breeze in next to my head - lows in the 40's tonight - yay!
Wasn't able to upload any pics at the hospital today, but my sister took a couple that turned out well... as soon as she gets off her lazy butt and posts them, I'll do the same here.
Thank you all again for the congratulations and prayers. Love you all!
