And it's about time I made a blog post about it too... I saw 3 or 4 other blog posts regarding this while the guy who won it didn't post his reaction yet! So for a mini celebration I've finally put up the poster I've been meaning to put up on my door. I've had this poster on before, but it never did stick properly... Now it seems appropriate, doesn't it? Ahaha!
I have to thank Danny for picking my room out of the 89 entries. I mean, 89! THAT'S A LOT! There were so many good ones, like Rin's; who had a lot of stuff yet so organized, and then there was Akiba-kid's, whom I saw a kindred spirit with since our room is stacked with books! Karasu-kun and Syaoran's too! I mean Syaoran even said he'd clean my room after I asked him LOL! But wow... I was shocked! I didn't expect to win. I was hoping to at least get a runner up prize XD
So the night Danny was about to post the winner, it was about 12:45 AM on Sunday. I was staying up late, trying to catch up on Pastel (I blame Raz for this XD), and checked puchi blurb occasionally and saw that Danny was about to post the winner. Which then I blurbed something like, "Should I wait for the winner or go to bed, lol". Danny replied promptly by asking what time it was in [Vancouver], which was almost 1 AM by that time. "Give me 30 mins tops," he says. You'd think I'd clued in why he asked me specifically... ^^;
15-20 minutes later, I was shaking, laughing uncontrollably, my teeth was chattering and my face was red as I saw the first picture that popped up in the winner announcement. It was joy and embarrassment mixed at the same time, lol. I know I've been told not to be embarrassed by it, but face it, my room's an effing mess! Safe to say I couldn't sleep right away, even though I had to work in about 5 hours. I saw the Sitemeter on Sunday and it finished counting to 389 at the end of the day. That was the most visits I've had ever since I started Sitemeter!
Right now I've so many things I want to get with the 20,000 yen, but I want to make sure it's something I really want and not just plain spend spend spend, just like what I did to my room... I still haven't registered at Tenso yet! I came home late from work on Sunday after having dinner with a friend and on Monday I've been watching Heroes and 24 while surfing DC.com. So many things happening right now...
Since I was taking pictures of my door anyway, here's a closer look of the thing above the door frame. It's the first letter to my name, R. And it transforms into a robot! Isn't it cute? :D
Hopefully after work on Tuesday I will try to register on Tenso and shop around. I already saw AmiAmi and jeez, I saw a lot of things I want to get already! Oh and 20,000 yen is approx $250 Canadian! That's a lotta manga I can get! No, wait... better hold off on the manga... Well I shall decide and will post accordingly ^^
Oh stay tuned, I have something special I will be posting on Thursday, if everything goes as planned. And thank you again Danny for choosing my messy otaku room and thank you to Tenso for sponsoring this great giveaway and to everyone who encouraged me about my room and all the participants & the runner-ups who contributed to this event. 'Twas very fun!!
Now I should really start cleaning my room if I don't want to end up like Gomiko...
