Dave Turns Five Giveaway 1

For Purse or Pocket

ENTRIES NOW CLOSED. THE WINNERS ARE
For the Boys - ThirdYe
For the Girls - Palimpsest
Please contact me via the sidebar profile link.

Welcome to the first of the Dave Turns Five Giveaways.

This giveaway is a classic ‘His & Hers’ double header, boys against the girls, but don’t worry, there are two winners! So, boys and girls, just what have we got for you? Well, for His Pocket we have a Pentel Sharp Kerry P1035 0.5mm mechanical pencil in boyish blue, and for Her Purse, an Ohto Tasche SP-10T 0.5mm mechanical pencil in feminine pink. Yeah well I like my stereotypes even if it’s not particularly PC these days. Anyway, both of these pencils are class acts and they are both capped pencils for the ultimate in pocket and purse safety. Two pencils = two winners! One Him and one Her.

This picture is of the actual giveaway items.
Just the pencils!! Him, Her and The Stig not included.
To enter this giveaway you simply leave a comment here on this posting. Any comment will do, the only compulsory requirement is that part of your comment MUST declare whether you are a boy or a girl, or man / woman, male / female, whatever, I don’t care, just make it clear whether you are a Him or a Her, e.g. “Count me in. I’m a boy”. But hey, the internet is just one big melting pot and I’m not the gender police, so if your screen-name is ‘SanFrancisoStan’ and you say “I’m a girl” or ‘1.8m Hamburg-Heidi’ says “I’m a man”…well, who am I to challenge your self-identification?

This giveaway will remain open for 5 days, after which the winning Him and Her will be chosen at random, and announced here on this post, so check back in to claim your prize. The winning bloke of course gets the Kerry and the winning lady gets the Tasche. If you don’t claim your prize by contacting me within a couple of days then a runner-up will be chosen to replace you.

The Fine Print
This giveaway is open to all registered readers. Kerry and Tasche are both brand new and unused, from my collection, so this giveaway is at my expense.
Not sure if you are registered? Then you probably aren’t, but you can check here.
Also, if you aren’t registered, but have recently become a reader then don’t despair, there will be some contests you can enter.
Only 1 comment per person. Extra comments will be deleted. If you want to ask any questions, start some discussion, etc then please use the Guestbook, or email me direct. If you somehow botch your comment and need to delete it, then whilst signed in you should be able to click the trashcan beside it and then start again from scratch. If you can’t, then email me and I should be able to do it for you.
Having trouble commenting? Make sure your browser security settings, esp. with Firefox, are set to allow third-party cookies. Still got trouble? Email me and we'll work on Plan B.

Hi Dave, from Montana [USA], love your blog. BTW - female.

stormlight811 said...

Heyla! Just found your blog this morning -- liking it very much. I'm looking forward to reading your reviews! I'm a girl, but really dislike pink (well, except for that translucent bubble-gum pink shade which occasionally pops up in the Pentel Twist-Erase line...it makes my inner 8-year-old very happy!) *ahem* ...no pink. If I -did- have to have a pink pencil, though, that one is sleek and lovely!

Michael said...

Man pencil for me

Samy B said...

Count me in, I'm a man.

Bridgett said...

The girl's are few and far between around here but I'm one of them. Still couldn't figure out if I'm registered or not since I read through my feedreader. Happy Anniversary Dave!

Rot Ring said...

Count me out, Dave: I like the Tasche's shape more but pink is not an option for a man like me :D

Tragic Comic said...

Congrats on 5 years. I've only recently come into my love of pens/pencils and lurking on the site. From your top 10 lists I've decided to pick up a Graph Gear 1000 but I'd have no problems rocking a Sharp Kerry too. Add another mark to the males list too.

Count me in for the Blue, I'm a boy. By the way, if you can, I'd like you to test out the Pentel TranXition, it seems to be one rare pencil and I've had some trouble tracking one down.
