This is the end
Hold your breath and count to ten
Feel the earth move and then
Hear my heart burst again
For this is the end
I’ve drowned and dreamt this moment
So overdue I owe them
Swept away, I’m stolen…
Unless you’ve been living under a rock these past few months, there’s a very good chance you’ve heard Adele’s golden pipes crooning the above lyrics. The song, having won a Golden Globe and currently in the running for an Oscar, was penned for the latest Bond movie Skyfall.
Did you have a chance to catch Skyfall when it hit theaters this past November? Being parents to two toddlers, J and I don’t get to go to the movies often, so we when do make it to a theater, you can bet that it’s for a movie we have been highly anticipating.
And Skyfall did not disappoint.
(To the doubters who have decided not to give Daniel Craig another chance after the atrocity that was Quantum of Solace, give the franchise a break — it was filmed smack in the middle of the Writers Guild strike, and even Craig himself admits it shouldn’t have been released the way it did.)
I will not say much more about Skyfall because I trust that those who want to read spoilers can find them in numerous other places. What I do want to say is that the movie will finally be released on Blu Ray and DVD tomorrow, and in celebration, the top UK appliance retailer Appliances Online has offered to sponsor an Amazon gift card giveaway!
That’s right — the winner will be able to purchase your own copy of Skyfall, or just use the $50 gift card for whatever else the world’s largest online store has in stock!

A toaster! I currently use our George Foreman grill as a toaster/panini press!
I would probably purchase a new battery for laptop (technically not an appliance, but hey lol)
a food processor!
I would probably purchase one of those high speed blender
I would buy any small to medium appliances online. Even large ones if shipping made sense.
A coffee maker
Probably a microwave.
Maybe a blender? Do I blend enough to necessitate paying for a blender?
A better food processor.
Hmmm, in terms of a major appliance, I would probably buy a microwave online.
A blender as my cheap wal-mart one broke and now I don’t have one 🙁
I would purchase either a blender or a food processor.
