Childhood Nostalgia Contest! $5 Amazon Giftcard Prize!

The time has come to test how shiny and awesome your childhood memories REALLY are! I'm giving away a $5 gift card, won by me through Swagbucks (my referral link)!

Its super-easy to enter - just post your happiest childhood memory story here as a comment. Most epic birthday or Christmas gift! Best vacation ever! Badass science fair winning! Beating a bully's ass! Shooting a man just to watch him die! Whatever memories you hold most dear from your time as a kid. You can include a link to pics, or a Youtube video.

I will pick the one I like best, based on arbitrary values of feel-goodiness and how large an urge I feel to high-five you and yell a 90's catch phrase.

Rules & stuff!
  • Only comments ON THIS POST will count as entries.
  • One entry per Blogger account. Posting multiple stories will disqualify you.
  • English only, please.
  • There is no minimum or maximum length to the story. If you need multiple comments to post it all, feel free.
  • You must post some kind of story, a solitary Youtube link or picture doesn't count!
  • The prize is in the form of one (1) giftcard code in the amount of $5.00, & will be delivered by email.
  • Contest ends on Tuesday, July 5th 2011 @ 12 PM Hawaii time (3 PM PST, 6 PM EST).
  • I will announce a winner on Friday, July 8th, 2011, time TBD. If there are a toooon of entries, it might take me longer.
With that all said - HAVE FUN, AND GET REMINISCING!


  1. Mine is probably playing Shining In The Darkness with my dad back in 1991. We'd stay up all night working our way through the labyrinth making a map so we knew the routes. That was before he became a dick and took off. Never saw him after that and rarely thought about him till he died in 2006.

  2. I think mine is when i met my current girlfriend. It was about 13 years ago. I was 5 and she was 6. we've known each other for so long, and our feelings developed over time. Now we're happily going out and we're so close ^^

  3. I remember when I was a kid my dad took me to a police raid - it was epic for me :)

  4. i can't believe only 3 people commented :( i wanna read some nostalgia stories

  5. Don't worry Baka, there's still plenty of time! I'll be closing the contest on the 5th of July.

    Also, just to let everyone know, Swagbucks posted the giftcard to me yesterday, so now its in my virtual hands!

  6. I remember playing one on one football with my brother in the backyard. He was 6 and I was 9 and I would crush him. Now he's a division one football player, I credit myself ;)

  7. My best childhood memory is going tubing at the lake. I was a fearless little kid. That speedboat would be going so fast, I would be getting some air! It was sweet.

  8. nice comments guys. keep it up!
