Winners! Winners! Winners! Hey guys, it’s finally time to let you all know who won the double-threat of terrifying squash summer contests!
First, know that ALL the winners have been notified by email and all prizes have been given out. Everyone who won, got a passel of prize codes to enjoy in Wizard101, including houses, mounts, pets, all sorts of things. And now, on to the good stuff!
Oh, my stars and garters, you guys, but coming up with this next contest nearly did me in. Seriously, there I was, metaphorical nose against the intellectual grindstone, trying desperately to some up with something, anything, that you haven’t seen before. For weeks, the only thing I managed to produce was the smoke pouring out of my ears.
And then, the other day, the answer literally walked through my front door. Well, not literally. Actually it was carried through my front door; carried by my much-put-upon son, as he struggled with the bulk of The Solution To All My Contest Problems. And what was that solution, you ask? Well, I’ll tell you, it was…
Well, it’s been a long and, at Casa de Mythspent, eventful summer so far. So eventful it seems that I haven’t been taking care of my responsibilities here. Shame on me. Though, thinking back on it, I’m pretty sure it was like this last summer, and the summer before that… Hmm… I’m sensing a pattern here.
At any rate, while summer isn’t entirely over, I am making an effort not to be such a slacker, and to get back to whatever-the-heck un-schedule-like schedule we had here before. Doesn’t that sound, uh, nice? Sure it does!
One of the first things I want/need to do is set up a new Wizard101 contest. Strangely, I’m finding that more difficult than usual. Don’t worry though, I’ll figure it out soon. Yes, I really mean soon in the traditional sense, not soon in the parental, I-hope-you’ll-forget-about-this sense. :p
In the mean time, how has your summer been? Unless you’re in Australia, in which case, how’s your winter going?

In a move that can only be called, REVOLUTIONARY, I’ve decided to actually put up a Video Friday post, ON A FRIDAY! Woo!
Okay, so you’re not convinced and it’s probably not all that revolutionary, but it involves videos and it’s up on time. Also, it’s Friday, so quit yer complainin’ already!
In any case, many of you are out of school for the Summer*. With apologies to Dumbledore, taking a much deserved break from academia (and baking your brains in the summer sun) is really not a reason to let your minds get completely empty. Sooner or later, someone somewhere is bound to ask you a question, and you certainly don’t want to be caught like this:
To that end, I have thoughtfully provided some quick video reference to keep your grey matter from turning into a lump of overcooked Spam between now and the end of break.
First, for those that want to be understood by other humans:
Second, for those with friends that can’t be pried off of Tumblr:
And finally, for those among us who have trouble with that thing called, Hu-mor:
*Here at Casa de Mythspent, we still have a week to go before Summer vacation begins. Think kindly of us, as you lounge on the beach (or look at beach pictures on Tumblr.)
First, I would like to thank you, as an entity, for the return of Doctor Who. I and many others have enjoyed it immensely, as I’m sure you know. It’s been a gift; a perplexing, funny, sad, philosophical and, at times, angry-making gift, full of both collective joy and collective consternation, but a gift nonetheless.
While I know it’s impolite to thank one for a gift in one hand, only to hold out the other hand asking for more, that is exactly what I am about to do. So please, bear with me as I make my case for A BRAND NEW MINI SERIES FEATURING…
I hope you are all enjoying the latest updates to the piratical parts of the Spiral. I know I am!
Having had time to level and develop my companions, I feel it only fitting that I doff my virtual chapeau to those tireless troopers, those accomplished accomplices: the Companions.
Today’s tribute is to that funny, fat fellow, Gaspard de Vole.
