My Spooky Choice Is ...

Well, the time has come for me to announce the winner for my Mariuca Halloween Mug contest! Although I did not receive as many entries for this contest compared to my First and Second Contests, I did enjoy reading all your wonderful entries. Some of them really did spook me to the max and I actually had goose bumps reading your scary encounters!

Before I announce the lucky winner who’ll be enjoying this Mariuca Halloween Mug, which also happens to be my personal fave by the way, I’d like to extend my sincere appreciation to everyone who participated. Thank you so much for your effort and time in sharing your most spooky stories with me. This scaredy cat here actually read every single one and was pretty impressed with some of your experiences!

Frankly, I had a difficult time selecting my winner this time but after much thought and reading each entry again, I finally decided on a winner! So without further ado, here’s Phoebe to present the Mariuca Halloween Mug to … Nick Phillips from Anything Goes! Nick’s story on The Exorcism of Emily Rose was original, well written and it managed to spook me out of my wits; I couldn’t get the snake picture out of my head for days! So let’s give a huge round of applause to Nick for winning this adorable Mariuca Halloween Mug! Congratulations Nick and do keep those scary stories coming!

Thanks to everyone who commented on My 100th Post, especially to those who participated in my Halloween Mug contest by sharing their encounters with me. And remember, if you didn't win this time, there's always the next Mariuca Mug Contest to look forward to! :)

A big THANK YOU to:

Hi Marzie,

Congrats and very well done to Nick...great competition too and a very worthy winner :)

One day I'll get around to being the first commenter hahahaha, I guess I will just have to sit here and refresh the page and as it refreshes someone else will beat me to it LOL

Have a wonderful day my friend, Hugs and love to you,


Nick Phillips (15/03/1967 - 04/11/2022) November 22, 2007 8:31 AM

You know Marzie, when your MBL message said I'm needed at your blog ASAP, I went 'Oh, no, another tag?' LOL!

But can you imagine my surprise to read that I actually won the Halloween mug! I seriously had to rub my eyes a few times to make sure I read right.

But hey, thanx for picking me as your winner. The others had pretty excellent stories and this mug deserves to be shared with all those who took part too. Yeah right! It's mine, all mine! Keep your grubby paws of it ... LOL!

Just kidding folks. You all deserve to win too. Thanx once again for choosing me as the winner :) Ok, now let me go and call a few people to brag about my win :D

YAY!! Congrats to Nick and his spooky story on exorcism. Exorcism is something that is super duper scary, that's for sure! Welcome to the group of Mariuca Mug winners, Nick. Hooray!! =)

And this contest is the most creative one from u GP. Asking the contestants to come up with a spooky story is so cool! =)

I'm delighted you won too Nick, and yes..even though you've won this mug you can still enter my next contest! :)

Mariuca November 23, 2007 3:55 PM

Kim Fei, it was very difficult to get Phoebe to stay put with the mug so I can snap her pic, she kept on running away, that's why la so moody and sleepy looking! ;)

Mariuca November 23, 2007 3:57 PM

Yay! My second contest winner is here, welcome NAFA! ;) Oooh, thanks peeps, I kinda liked putting the twist in this contest, made it more interesting for me and hopefully for my readers too! :):):)
