    Hey, what about that lovely prize you won in the HT Trivia Contest, v 1.0?

    Here are a few of the things I've won:
    • CDs from Z-Rock, that old satellite heavy metal station, for being able to name the members of King's X.
    • Concert tickets from Star 101.9 for the Jars of Clay show at the Hawaii Theater (great concert) for recognizing a scrambled-up snippet of the Tubes' "She's a Beauty."
    • A painter's cap with flaps for some music trivia answer from KIKI.
    • Some cool Starbucks stuff and a L'Uraku gift certificate for honorable mention in the Honolulu Magazine fiction contest.
    • A Lizard Loft t-shirt and gift certificate at Java Java for winning a poetry slam.
    • A copy of the International Directory of Little Magazines and Small Presses for winning a creative writing contest at UH-Hilo.
    • The Oxford Dictionary of Quotations for winning the same contest the next year.
    • $25 for a Myrtle Clarke creative writing award from the UH-Manoa English department.
    • Lunch at the school cafeteria for second-place in the air-band contest my junior year. We did VH's "Panama."
    • About $4500 on Wheel of Fortune.
    • Countless fries, burgers, and drinks in the McDonalds Monopoly game.
    • And I may already have won $42,000,000 from Publisher's Clearinghouse.

    When I was 15 I won 3 dozen LP's from a radio station...can't recall which station.

    Won several rounds of golf in our members league....one weekend our foursome won $200.

    In August I won two free rounds at Luana Hills Country Club through Hawaii.com...what an awesome course! Used the passes on my trip this month.

    I got one.heheheh

    Several years ago, I was recovering from the flu. Dragging my arse to my daughter's room, I asked her for twenty-five dollars.

    "What do you need twenty-five dollars for?" she grumbled.

    "I want to enter the Karaoke Contest and there's an entrance fee."

    "No lie, you just like go drink!" She scolded me.

    "I promise I will win the prize and come straight home."

    I went to the Club, everyone was there. I was the last to register from eighteen contestants. Two of three Judges, Kimo Mansfield and Karen Keawehawaii.

    Two songs sung by each contestant. Everyone had family and friends...I had none. I was the second to the last. I went up and did my thing.heheheh

    We were all called up to the stage to await the announcement of the winner.

    There would only be one for the beautiful Tahitian Pearl/Diamond Necklace with the 14K Gold Chain.

    HAHAHAHAHAHA

    Upon receiving it, I wen hele home and gave it to my daughter who proudly wears it around her neck today.

    Auntie Lynn

    I won a Sony DVD Player at a Neighborhood Meeting.

    And I won my fiance. Nah, nah...just JOKING.

    When I was about 9 years old I won a box of Morton iodized salt (I remember "iodized" being important!) when I was the correct caller with the correct answer in a radio station contest. I received the coupon in the mail and was absolutely thrilled to redeem it at the neighborhood grocery store! It was a gift to my parents!

    Last year I won a door prize...a 2 night's stay at the Sheraton Waikiki. Not too shabby! I used it for the week-end of Don Ho's services in Waikiki. My room was right above and overlooking the private service. I played tourist the rest of the week-end. Fun!

    I won a sports tournament by default when I was the only contestant to show up. It was the best day of my life.

    What Have You Ever Won?

    I just finished posting on the lottery thread again, and it's fun stuff to talk about, so it hit me that I oughta start this one and any of us that wish can tell each other what we've won in our lives, per sweepstakes or contests with prizes.

    I play the lotto mainly cuz I dunno why but I've had luck throughout my life of winning things, and always felt that though it feels and sounds too good to be true that I probably have one "big" win coming in my life,so I play Publisher's Clearinghouse online, and lotteries through friends and family in Texas. I'm even in the lotto in texas through two different people at times, one in San Antonio and other in Dallas area.

    Okay! I am 50 and when I was 12yrs. old I won 100. bucks on a radio station, but it was Friday the 13th. and first day of a contest where we had to guess which celebrity they had recorded whispering into the mic. It was Ms. Whisper contest, then Mr. whisper, once they had a winner, and they gave a few clues every day, or intended to, but I won on the 13th. the first day of the contest, and actually cuz I have a sister named Diana and it was Diana Ross whispering, and I got in when dialing a bunch and didn't even have a name to guess,so I looked at my sis, gave that name and freaked them and me out, cuz I won.

    It's gets stranger....three years and one day later on an Oct. 14th, yes I won another 100. bucks on the same radio station in the afternoon, after school and the university Texas/Oklahoma football game was that weekend, and I had told a dear friend at school that I was giong to go home and win something so I could go to the game, and then I did, LOL.

    I've won a five thousand dollar savings bond, that was my biggest, in a drawing in a store on base years ago, a hundred dollars free groceries and a red wagon for kids by having my entry drawn out of a huge box. All of these were a few years apart in the same store, but the drawings were by different vendors, hence it being allowed for me to win repeatedly cuz I was a customer of each of them separately.

    I won a cheap camera, concert tickets, coke and chips, and albums on the radio when in jr. high and high school.

    I won a 25. buck gift certificate in a grocery store by just standing in the checkout and a gal from their offices walking up to one customer each hour, randomly.

    I sat with hubby at an awards dinner and we won a stereo when our name was drawn out of the box, but since hubby had helped put the awards and prize thing together we of course told them no way, put our name back in and draw again, but it's just a trip how many times I've won stuff.
