Last month, we offered you the chance to win a Livescribe Echo smartpen by scribbling us a love letter. The deadline is past, the jury has been browsing all the excellent prose flung our way, and now we have a winner: Elizabeth Blaney, come on down!
There were plenty of touching letters and beautiful ballads written in honour of Electricpig for the competition, but in the end, Elizabeth’s entry won us over with its combination of flattery and frank confession of what the Livescribe pen would be used for.
Here’s the full poem below:
I do love you, Electricpig, your news and views and gizmos
You told me about the PS3 to use for Grand Turismo
And now you’re giving stuff away, you’ve pleased me even more
So now I’m trying to think of words to get your highest score
The lovely Livescribe Echo pen – it really seems to glisten
I’d use it in those boring meetings and wouldn’t have to listen!
So please pick me. dear Electricpig, as I’m your biggest fan
And give me the pen, that whizzy pen – Go on, you know you can!
“I’ve been lusting after one of these pens for about a year, since I was in a meeting with someone who had one,” Elizabeth tell us. “Is it wrong to be so excited about a pen?”
Nope, not when the Livescribe Echo is a five star, Electricpig recommended pen. Congratulations Elizabeth, your prize is on its way to you.
