The White Elephant Rides Again

With all the Muriels excitement of late, it seems I’ve completely forgotten about another momentous annual event- the White Elephant Blogathon! But while we’re just over a month from April Fool’s Day- traditionally the date the White Elephant is held- I think we can still find a way to make this happen.

So for those of you who are new to this, here are the rules as laid down by White Elephant founder Benjamin Lim:

1) Submit the title of a movie that you want someone else to review (preferably something available via Netflix).
2) Review the movie that you get assigned and post the review for your site/blog on April 1.
3) Have fun!

Now, some of you may be wondering what sort of movies to submit. Really, it could be anything you want to see another person review. It could be something you’d love to show to your best friend, or it could be something you’d only force on your worst enemy. But if you feel like being nice, be warned- you might be lucky enough to get a movie like Claude Chabrol’s Le Boucher, but you’re just as likely to end up with Madonna in Swept Away. So plan accordingly.

Anyway, if you haven’t been scared off already, you can send your submission to me at lastwordsquiz@yahoo.com. Because I’d like everyone to have plenty of time to watch and review the movies I choose for them, submissions will be due no later than 11:59 PM on Tuesday, March 6. In other words, one week from now. And if you have any questions about the White Elephant or anything having to do with cheese or pugs, or pugs made out of cheese for that matter, feel free to e-Mail me about that as well.
