After the longest winter of my life, I am ridiculously happy to announce that spring has OFFICIALLY HIT HALIFAX, CANADA!
Phew. Honestly, you cannot imagine my relief. Things were getting pretty grim for a while there. I’m looking at pictures from Celeste DeWolfe over in South Korea, who seems to spend all her time going to Cherry Blossom festivals and eating giant cotton candy balls, and then I look out my window, see seven-foot-high snowbanks, and think “Aw man.”
But today it was above zero and the snow’s finally melting and everything is glorious! Therefore, I have been inspired to run a …
Imminent Danger bumper sticker giveaway!
1 bumper sticker, as follows …
I have one on my car, and it’s super fly. You will be literally the coolest person in the galaxy if you have this bumper sticker on your car.
How to enter:
Since I’m feeling whimsical today, in order to enter I want you to write me a haiku. Post it in the comments on this blog post, or post it on my Facebook page, or, heck, even tweet it to me (@michellishelli).
The haiku can be about anything you want — my book, sheep, the dichotomy of good and evil, whatever floats your boat. I’ll pick my favorite, and the winner gets an awesome bumper sticker!
In case you don’t know, a haiku is three lines, with the syllable scheme 5/7/5. Here’s an example:
Holy cow, it’s a
super awesome giveaway
I sure hope I win
Terrible? Yes. Technically correct? Also yes! Haiku me, people!
Let’s make it … 9 am EST on April 13. So that gives you the weekend to think up an awesome haiku and send it my way.
Happy haiku-ing, everyone!

Fun challenge. Haiku is harder than it looks:

Flowers and leaves are waking
Sneezes are coming
