To think that if MNHQ promise me a PM and a prize for winning the n/c comp, they should give me one...

I want a present. I want a present. I want a present.

<stamps feet>

I did start hear a rumour they were going to give me Tech's half packet of digestives and that's why the site had that MASSIVE meltdown the other day.

TeeElfOnTeeShelf Thu 13-Dec-12 06:06:39

Have you still not heard Hec? How rood!

HECTheHallsWithRowsAndFolly Thu 13-Dec-12 06:07:19

I know!

And I've been dropping oh so subtle hints all over the place grin

SoleSource Thu 13-Dec-12 06:24:21

Olivia said you wanted more please Sir.

BeckAndCallWithBoughsOfHolly Thu 13-Dec-12 06:32:50

I TOLD them this would happen! MNHQ, I said, Hecate will stamp her foot and hold her breath til she turns blue if you don't give her her prize NOW!

And now she has. I am a soothsayer.

Perhaps they are making you a special badge with your name on to wear in RL? Ooh, that would be fun...... Or it's a virtual hamper full of imagined goodies - that could take them AGES to prepare......

fightingthela Thu 13-Dec-12 06:42:35

Congratulations Hec grin <glad my vote made a difference>
Be careful what you wish for. I may have heard rumours that the prize includes Movember beard trimmings wink

fightingthela Thu 13-Dec-12 06:44:18

Seriously though, they're too busy 'sourcing' all the ferrero rocher goodies to reply.

HECTheHallsWithRowsAndFolly Thu 13-Dec-12 09:06:57

ferrero rocher?

[hopeful]

Last years winner had to wait til mid January before recieving their prize.

Be satisfied with the glory or the win.

HECTheHallsWithRowsAndFolly Thu 13-Dec-12 09:15:32

January?

Left overs from the MN christmas party then? grin

I'll give up the prize if they kick Paggy off the throne and let me be Queen of Mumsnet for the day. With full access to the back end of the website.

I would be a benevolent dictator*...

Eh? This is odd. We will find out what's occurring. Am sure it's been sent, Hecate, but we'll double-check.

LittleTownofBethleHelenMumsnet (MNHQ) Thu 13-Dec-12 10:06:57

OK, Hecate. We have had a dig about and can see that we PM'd you aaaages ago to ask you for your address so we could send your prize over.

But we PM'd you as Hecate, a NN that now belongs to a de-regged account you past flouncer, you so it never arrived, obvs.

We'll PM you again and grovel a bit...

NettleTea Thu 13-Dec-12 10:48:18

Can I have a prize?
I didnt win anything (well, I did and I got that prize, so lets forget I mentioned that)
But I really would like a prize if there seems to be a pile of them waiting to be sent to recipients. Ive been awfully good this year.

HECTheHallsWithRowsAndFolly Thu 13-Dec-12 10:49:20

grin I did. I flounced. without fanfare.

And I lost hecate and mytwopenceworth.

<sob>

I should at least have done a big dramatic billowing cape flounce if the price was the loss of my two best names. grin

SoleSource Thu 13-Dec-12 10:50:55

A Notting Hill townhouse and a million pound each year for life was two of them.

Ah right. We'll despatch shortly.

stifnstav Thu 13-Dec-12 10:52:52

What is the prize? I did a tombola yesterday and was stunned by the undesirable shit on it.

Broken photoframe anyone?!

ChaoticforlifenotjustChristmas Thu 13-Dec-12 10:53:07

All flounces should be dramatic...'tis the law wink

I didn't even know there was a competition. Can I have a prize cos I didn't know so therefore missed out on entering?

<smiles sweetly>

SoleSource Thu 13-Dec-12 10:54:14

Ah well worth a lie try. grin

TheCrackFox Thu 13-Dec-12 10:54:51

I won a prize that never materialised about 3 yrs ago. I asked for Habitat vouchers which shows you the vintage of my claim. Gave up asking in the end.

you dirty people, you.

I wish to make it clear that I am in no way attempting to solicit sexual favours from the good people at MNHQ.

noisytoys Thu 13-Dec-12 11:12:06

Don't get your hopes up. I went to London to do filming for Barclays. I was promised a £150 voucher and every time I chase it up I'm fobbed off. Very disappointing seeing as getting there left me out of pocket and I was going to use the voucher to get my DDs (age 2 and 4) a Christmas present :'(

WhenAChildIsBawnTigga Thu 13-Dec-12 12:00:52

This was something organised through MN, noisytoys? If so, please do mail in to contactus at mumsnet dot com and we'll chase that up for you.

I never win presents. sad

PurplePidjChickIsNotTheMessiah Thu 13-Dec-12 13:12:57

I don't win stuff because the competitions page doesn't load properly on a blackberry playbook sad

And i missed out on most of the product tests because up until 3 1/2 weeks ago i didn't have a child sad

I'll try again next year, though.

fuzzypicklehead Thu 13-Dec-12 13:14:22

I'm going to add MN competition wins to my cosmic ordering list. That'll do it.

<prepares to win ALL 2013 comps and distribute her bounty far and wide>

TeeElfOnTeeShelf Thu 13-Dec-12 13:22:00

"And i missed out on most of the product tests because up until 3 1/2 weeks ago i didn't have a child"

Not sure you can blame MN for that! In case you didn't know, the "when a mummy and a daddy share a special cuddle" explanation does not mention MN.

grin

PurplePidjChickIsNotTheMessiah Thu 13-Dec-12 13:29:48

No, but i can still piggyback onto Hec's foot-stamping petulance to strop about the lack of opportunities for non-parents! [fsulk]

Can someone check on Bedmonster. That laptop may well be her only portal to Mnet.

Mnet bought me a new TV when mine broke smile that was pretty cosmic.

NagooHoHoHo Thu 13-Dec-12 14:03:53

purple congrats on the 3.5week old child smile

have they decided what to give you yet hec?

HECTheHallsWithRowsAndFolly Thu 13-Dec-12 14:12:57

I believe I'm getting half a pack of soggy biscuits that Hugh Grant had his chops round last week.

But not the gin.

They PM'd me, trying to convince me there was no gin.

There was gin.

TheHoneyDragonsDrunkInTheIvy Thu 13-Dec-12 14:17:00

It's MNHQ

There is always gin.

CatPussRoastingOnAnOpenFire Thu 13-Dec-12 19:10:46

You'd better hope you don't get one of those hampers containing aspirin, 300 condoms, razors and all that other stuff! You'll wish you hadn't asked! confused

MulledPinot Thu 13-Dec-12 19:17:39

Hec you are funny grin

Can Tech give you your Hecate name back as some kind of consolation for PMing to the wrong place etc?

SomeTiggyPudding Thu 13-Dec-12 19:47:49

Isn't there going to be some kind of drug testing before the prizes are given out?

HECTheHallsWithRowsAndFolly Thu 13-Dec-12 19:49:30

I got it back once already.

But they failed to tell me that if I namechanged, then I wouldn't be able to get it back. So I did a jokey namechange and when I tried to go back - couldn't get it.

And I thought I had already been enough of a giant pain in the arse already and didn't dare ask again grin

I have since learned that someone else got their name back AND retained the ability to namechange.

So I have been spreading rumours on the internet that MNHQ call each other hunny and babe and that Justine makes them wear shell suits.

HECTheHallsWithRowsAndFolly Thu 13-Dec-12 19:51:06

drug testing?

God, I hope not grin

I would LOVE one of those hampers.

I haven't got my granny her christmas present yet.

SomeTiggyPudding Thu 13-Dec-12 20:06:19

By drug testing I meant your wee tested to see if you've had any.

Not given a hamper full of a variety of drugs for you to see which one is your favourite.
