For your little dinosaurs (and monsters)

By Mir

Category Contests

Halloween’s over, and your kids are running around the house all jacked up on sugar. It’s adorable! And a little scary. Like any good parent, you know that your best hope for sanity this coming week is to park them in front of a movie and hope for the best. (… what?)

So let’s have a quickie weekend contest designed to ease your pain! One lucky Want Not reader is going to receive Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs from me, and hopefully enjoy 94 minutes of peace. Doesn’t that sound nice, right about now?

Want to win it? First go review the contest rules and regulations, then come on back here and leave a comment on this post by 7:00 a.m. Eastern (that’s 4:00 a.m. Pacific) on Monday, November 2nd, 2009 to be entered for a chance to win. Winner to be determined by random number generation and who offers me the best candy. (Just kidding. I cannot be bribed.) (Unless you have truffles, or something.) (Kidding!)

Ready? Go!
