Let's be clear about one thing right up front, I am not a girl and I am not a samurai. Okay, that's two things – let's be clear about two things right up front, I am not a girl and I'm not a samurai and I have no intention of one day becoming a girl. Fine, let's be clear about three things right up front – I'm not a girl, I'm not a samurai, and I have no intention of becoming a girl and I have no intention of becoming a samurai. Grrr… let's be clear about four things right up front – I'm not a girl, I'm not a samurai, I have no intention of becoming a girl, and I have no intention of becoming a samurai, and, no one expects the Spanish Inquisition.
There, with that out of the way, I'd like to point out that one doesn't have to be a girl (or have the intention of becoming one) or be a samurai (or having the intention of becoming one) for one to enjoy watching a girl become a samurai.
Now, I'm not using the word "girl" as a pejorative (nor the word "samurai" for that matter). I'm using it because it's in the name of a new ABC Family miniseries, Samurai Girl. It's all going to air on three consecutive nights, September 5-7 from 8-10pm each night. I have the first episode sitting in front of me right now, and I'm going to try to get a review of it up, but right now I have something entirely different to tell you about Samurai Girl – we have a prize pack associated with the miniseries to giveaway (you already knew that didn't you?).
Here's the deal – we have a copy of the book Samurai Girl, written by Carrie Asai and Samurai Girl branded tattoos (temporary, I assume and hope) and we're willing to give both away to one lucky, lucky winner.
What, you want to know the rules too? First, calm down. Stop yelling about it. I don't respond well to yelling. Put away the hot poker and we'll talk. Put it away. Now. What is this, the Spanish Inquisition? Fine, fine, here they are (plus the ones on the entry form itself, of course):
