    That is quite a Radagast following!

    So Tindo, no play for the Mediocalcar? It's such a natural fit for your vivarium. You have till 3pm tomorrow!

    Personally, I like the OZ Scarecrow of the phil. I think it is befitting our Timmy-O. I am afraid to say that our Timmy-O does not have the thousand years of wisdom of a Timmy-O-dalf.
    So please and PLEASE vote for the Scarecrow of the Phil. And we all know that Scarecrow is from the Land of OZ. How appropriate!

    My 3 cents. Doc Spock.

    Okay!
    The contest is officially closed, although I do invite Aaron, the Minister of Silly Flasking, to share his efforts at entering - boy he wanted that Mediocalcar decoratum! I choked on my curry, laughing at the story over lunch.

    Hoa did not enter, but feels no shame begging for his buddy, Diane to win! And dissing my entry to boot! Hmm...I may need to revoke the rights to his avatar and knickname...

    Thank you all for playing!

    And now Tim-O will judge the entries and announce the winners... That is, after he's had his cup of joe. Or was that his cup of joey...those Oz things always confuse me... It's 7am Monday morning for him.

    Good luck to everyone.
    Sorry I had a serious shortage of imagination this month, in all aspects of my life

    Oh dear...that might be too much information, but I don't even want to think about it!

    Not to worry, Tindo - since Doc Spock has set the precedent, you can always shamelessly beg for the Mediocalcar decoratum the name has a lovely ring to it when said aloud from the winner!

    Hey! Hoa is just displaying the depth of his understanding of Tim's character.... I didn't even get down to the show to have a chance to bribe him or anything!

    ok, first I just want to say that I'm sorry that not everyone can win and receive a piece of the Mediocalcar!

    it was a hard decision... I felt an affinity for each one of the entries, but well, I guess I shouldn't drag this any longer and tell y'all who has one...

    the winner is.....

    POP! (aka Prince of Paphs!!!) - Mehera

    I loved this because I became part of the my beloved philippinense...

    Thank you!!!!

    So McPrizehandler, I'm sure will get in contact with you about sending the plant...

    now, I want to thank all the other people who entered and who tried to enter and who thought about entering.. I can only imagine how hard it must have been.. so thank you...

    oh wait... I forgot...

    I also thought I'd give two consolation prizes to two others...

    1. McJ for theWizard of Oz and making me feel like I could have wisdom...
    2. Molly Taco for the cute tim-punzel effect of the philippinense petals on the side of my head... heheheh

    so to you both, I have a book each to send... so please PM me your postal details.

    Again, I want to thank everyone for participating... special mention to the Phil-Oz-opher, it was very clever (thank you Diane) and the technicolour Paph Dream is very visually striking (thank you Bruce).

    well, that's it, I guess... from now on I'm POP

    Thank you again McJ for the fun contest thread.

    Good job, everybody!

    I love the look of the avatar, Tim...er, I mean your Royal Highness. Mehera, your artistic eye came up with a simple enough design that even at 100 pixels, it's easy to see. Congrats on your win!

    Thanks all for playing!

    Sorry Doc Spock!
