Go on Safari, right from home

Category Contests

Hey, remember on Saturday when I promised a contest later in the day? I’m still catching up on things, and by “catching up on things” I of course mean “I was completely sucked into the Olympics and various things around the house here.” Whoops! Sorry about that. Okay! So here’s what we’re going to do: A quick contest, just for today.

Do you love little baby animals? Seriously, what are you, a monster? Of course you love little baby animals! And probably your kids do, too, which is why you can always rest easy knowing that a nature DVD is just as likely to hold their attention as a cartoon. The newly-released Growing Up Safari is nearly three hours of Animal Planet goodness, featuring animal babies being raised with the help of human caregivers. So cute! So cuddly! And so educational, you won’t feel guilty checking your email!

I have five copies of Growing Up Safari to give away, and we’re going to make this a speedy little contest. To enter to win leave a comment on this post by 3:00 p.m. Eastern (noon Pacific) today (Monday, August 11th, 2008). This is a much shorter contest than usual, I realize, and I’ll be curious to see how many entries we can get in the shorter period of time. So don’t delay!

Winners to be determined by random number generation and survival instinct. Or something. Go!
