I have a dream

... and YOU can help!
Kate and I have entered a competition to win $10,000 towards our dream (which is to save enough money to buy a forever home so we don't have to keep renting for the rest of our lives). The competition is being run by an investment company in Australia. To have a chance at winning, we need people to vote for the picture we've uploaded onto the competition website (it's the one here in this post, taken last time we had to move house, in 2007. I look so sad because I HATE MOVING HOUSE!!!).

If you would like to vote for me, please visit this website:
and rate my photo out of five. Voting closes at 11.59pm (eastern Australian time) THIS SUNDAY, 14 December. We know that the competition is a long shot, but we thought it would be fun to give it a good old Aussie go. If you decide to vote for me, thanks! But it's ok if you don't vote... we can still be friends.

Happy weekend, everycat!


P.S. Thanks, everycat, for your kind thoughts and purrs at Sooty's passing. They meant a lot!

We have got your email and voted for you. It was a bit confusing as it didn't say our votes has been casted, but you've got 2 votes more so we guess it worked. Good Luck!!!!

Martin Luther King dreampt that "one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: 'We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal'".

You have a dream of owning your own house.

Both are valid. I voted for you. I'd like to have been able to vote for Barack too, though.

My word verification today is 'sunbar'. Nice.

I voted for you! I will vote as many times as I can. I hope your dream comes true, kitties hate the M word.

I am so so sorry to hear about Sooty. I visited her site when she blogged and she was a special lady. Obviously one that was well loved and well cared for to have such a long life. Purrrrrrs of comfort to her beans.

We stopped by and tried to vote for you but we're not sure whether it took. Was something supposed to happen when we clicked on a number?

Pablo said...

Wow! Thanks so much for voting, everyone. Yeah, the voting system is a little unclear, but what everyone is doing is right... I've got 121 votes so far. I don't know how many I might need to make the top 100, but this is fun, anyway!

I voted for you, but I got "transferring data from xxx" for 15 minutes and nothing seemed to happen, so I hope it worked. I am very sorry about Sooty.

Christine and FAZ said...

Pabs, you are the best!

Hey what are friends for but to be there when you need them, you can count on your friends always!
When you are sorrowful
look again in your heart,
and you shall see that in truth
you are weeping for that
which has been your delight.
