    That's what I was hoping for - but glad it wasn't completely unfindable.

    [QUOTE=VeryPC;1104445](other than pride and smugosity), HaleStorm. CLUE: there is a tiny big clue somewhere in this paragraph.

    Is it a box set of "Pride and Smugosity"? The VeryPC remake of Pride and Predudice? or the complete works of the metal band HaleStorm??

    Is it a print out of madvent thread in all its random glory??

    Thanks @VeryPC
    You're welcome, but they will be a new year treat rather than a xmas one now, as will all prizes won tomorrow of course.

    All names go back in for the final draw (25), so good luck with that one too.

    No, wait - the link was to the Nano, Nano sounds like nee-nah, nee-nah is the sound of an ambulance...

    Does the winner get hospitalised by Emma?

    Make a guess at what the star prize for day 25 is and I will award you a bonus entry. It's that simple - no prize for correct answer (other than pride and smugosity), but a single bonus entry for each person who has one or more guesses. Remember that no-one gets more than 3 total entries including their original entry (currently just @sparkeh and @HaleStorm are maxed out). CLUE: there is a tiny big clue somewhere in this paragraph.

    Al

    EDIT - I will reveal the prize later today. I'll take guesses until 3pm then tell you all what it is, so make your guesses...

    I think I have it!

    Pride and Smugosity and a total of 3 entries

    PS3!!

    Ehhh, yes, no. I don't know! You've confused me.

    No not these, but bonus earned.

    Al

    EDIT - also, the weird tags in your message have confused my reply too - I'me gonna leave it like this as a warning to those who follow.

    When I was little, it was always a nativity scene behind the last window - that's what it is, isn't it - we're getting a donkey...

    I think I've cracked it!

    Day 25 > 2 and 5 > 5 - 2 = 3

    3 entries > 3 + 3 = 6 > 6 sounds like "sick" > Being ill can end your LIFE

    3 competitions this year [Back to school, Stock2ber, MADvent] > 3 is HALF of 6

    HALF LIFE 3 CONFIRMED!

    Wait... what.

    I saw this a while back and thought that the concept is just awesome, but the final result does not look very appetising. Imagine trying to scoff your way through that giant dry pale yolk - yeugh!

    Saying that, the Mother in Law is round Christmas Day, so I'd love to win a crate of Tactical Nuclear Penguin or alternatively a baseball bat, mini digger and some quick lime.

    Yep - I've been hiding a donkey under that sheet since December 1st, feeding her Lindor and Rocher.

    Bonus earned.
