The first contest of the month is a special one. And I don’t mean special in the “stop eating the paste” kind of way. October 18th is Rebecca Watson’s birthday. So this contest will have a distinct Rebecca flavour.
I don’t knowÂ about the rest of you fine folks, but Rebecca is very important to me. Not just because she’s my boss lady over here at Skepchicks HQ, but because she has been a role model for meÂ before I started writing for this website. Rebecca has shown me that she can hold her own with the boys, she’s smart, funny, beautiful, feisty, and is passionate about skepticism.Â She does so much for us Skepchicks and for skepticism in general. Elyse and I, while brainstorming about future contests, decided that it’s about time that there was a contest dedicated to our Queen Bee.
So here’s the scoop: draw a picture, upload a video, write a song, write a poem, whatever you can think up,Â to show and wish Rebecca the happiest of birthdays and to show her that we all appreciate the work she does.Â Put your entries in the comments (flickr, youtube, photobucket are your friends!) and on October 18th, we will have Rebecca pick her favorite out the bunch.
The winner will receive above all, Rebecca’s *love.Â And Astronaut ice cream, generously ordered by Elyse!
Disclaimer: Rebecca’s love is not available in a physical form. Unless you are Hugh Laurie.
