Jody Gehrman Sponsored Contest!! (U.S./Canada)

starbucks  =D Pictures, Images and Photos
Jody Gehrman is helping us host a contest in honor of her books Confessions of a Triple Shot Betty and Triple Shot Bettys in Love

Contest: Post a haiku about your favorite caffeinated beverage.

Starts/Ends: April 29, 2009-May 8, 2009 (next Friday I believe!)

Open too: U.S. and Canada ONLY!
Prize: (Thanks to Jody) A copy of both books plus a handmade bookmark and a starbucks gift card for $10.

Winner Chosen: Be creative, because Jody is picking the winner herself!

Haiku: 5 syllables, 7 syllables, and then 5 syllables

Example of mine:

Mountain Dew is cool
The thought makes my mouth water
I would like it now

That's it basically. I'm pretty sure the syllables are right. And yes, I know, mine is kind of bad. I did it in like five seconds. :)

Have Fun!

Tea, please, with sugar
And milk. None of this lemon
Nonsense. Best served hot.

espresso and milk
caramel, delicious and sweet
perfect in the rain

FYI - I pronounce caramel with only two syllables - I'm very unsophisticated over here in NY.

I Heart Monster said...

Sunkist Orange is
The only caffeine I heart
The rest? Ew, gross much?

Caffeine is awesome
Coffee is my favorite

Liviania said...

It's black like my soul
because sugar, milk, creamer
destroy the flavor.

Fizzy, icy, sweet
A frosty mug of rootbeer
Heaven for my tongue

Starbucks Java Chip!
Coffee is my therapy,
What I long for most.

Haha I live in Washington so there is a Starbucks on every single street. I LOVE coffee, treat myself to a Java Chip Frappacino or Caramel Macchiatto at least once each week! I know that the gift card would be so useful to me :) Not to mention that I've been dying to read the books!


Wrighty said...

Stumble sleepy-eyed

Thanks! This was fun. Can't wait to read the books!
