This Year’s S.A.D. Winners

Thursday, February 14th, 2013

Single’s Awareness Day is upon us, and we have some limericks for you, courtesy of our customers.   This year’s winner comes from SH, who wrote:

“A Newfoundland Affair”
There once was a gal who lacked romance,
despite being born in Come-by-chance.
Because come as you are
is too easy by far,
‘specially with a fellow named Lance.

And a special second award goes to LB, who gave us:

While ideal of romance is inviting,
and the benefits, true, delighting,
I’d sever a finger
for one who would linger,
nearby, poem-reciting.

Thanks to everyone who entered.  And remember: tomorrow is Half-Price Chocolate Day!

All Your Limericks Are Belong To Us

Friday, February 8th, 2013

February 14th is coming up fast.  I myself prefer to celebrate the lesser-known holiday on the 15th (aka: Half-price Chocolate Day!), but for everyone else, it’s time for our annual Singles Awareness Day contest.

At stake is a box of exquisite chocolates from Soma, a truly world-class* chocolatier.  To enter, send us a limerick on the subject of romance.  Successful or not; existing or imaginary; serious or funny: doesn’t matter.  Email your entry to: contest/at bakkaphoenixbooks dot/com.  We’ll choose and post the winner on February 13th.

*also local; but their kitchen is not nut-free. If you have a serious allergy, this is not a good contest for you.  Unless you’re giving the chocolate away, in which case I like the sea-salt caramels.  In case you were wondering.
