Gmail giveaway (14)

I have an invitation to open a Gmail account that I will give to the person who posts the most intriguing/entertaining/stunning self-portrait. Link to yours in the comments.


I'm no good at self portraits, but i want that gmail account so bad its worth a shot..

Hmmm. Did I take this, or did my daughter?


If I win, I'll give it to the more desiring Mark Himself. Especially since I'm not sure that my daughter didn't take it.

I'm sorry that your links aren't links. I'll try to fix.
Forgot to mention that the competition will close at midnight Sunday, Paris time.

Not really intriguing or stunning per se, but I find it entertaining:


I also want to say thanks for a fantastic site; I visit often and have started my own photolog as a direct result:

Taken a while back, but I still like it. Yeah, hanging around in a bathroom...who knows when inspiration will strike.

It was hard not to let my emotions get in the way while judging this contest. Was I impressed by Mr. Mustard's bold use of color, or just awed that the Mayor of LiveJournal had deigned to post here? So I wimped out. After disqualifying Eliot (previous contest winners and their families are not eligible) I chose a winner at random. The lucky recipient of a Gmail account is Colter, who should really read up on the risks of using electrical equipment near water.

Thanks to everyone who entered, and thanks for the kind feedback.

Thanks David! Eliot, yours was my favorite as well, so if you still want an account, I'll invite you whenever Gmail gives me a chance.

Oh, I'm so sorry I sent the poison pen letter before I came here to read your nice comments. I take back all of the bad things I said. By my count I've lost 10,000 web award contests so far, and yours is my favorite!

In other words: The Winner of the 2004 Nicest Web Award Prize goes to:


How much do you think it will cost to send a can of Tab to Paris?

I guess I should make a little icon of the award but I know you won't post it on your new beautiful Moveable Type home page so what's the point?

I hope I'm not overstepping my bounds to comment here, but in case you can't get a Gmail account here and would like to try your luck somewhere else, I have a Gmail contest going on at my site right now. Good luck.
