Quizzical dates

Bloggie friends!

This is an honest to goodness competition question – the prize is £700 worth of shoes.

When was Valentine’s Day this year?
a)12 Jan
b)14 Feb
c)14 March

I kind of like the way the question adds ".. this year"! LOL!

I won’t say which mag this competition is being run cos I seriously *wink* want to increase my chances of winning this. Ahem.

Charlie says: I don't need more shoes just more snacks


Half-way to the weekend!!!

p.s. It's in Woman's Weekly!

I thought Valentine's Day was always February 14th, but maybe we have a different one in the U.S.

I don't really need any shoes, so I hope you win!

Mr Puddy said...

Charlie, I got you !!
but seems your human never got a clue !
She should search for the Nip Shoes instead, at least it can be fun for you as well.
Have a nice day Charlie

klahanie said...

Huh? What's Valentine's Day? Something I've missed?
Charlie, of course, you need more shoes, after all, they might have some tasty 'soles' and we know y'all like fish :)

Clarissa Draper said...

Are you serious? One question and all those shoes. Awesome!

The Words Crafter said...

Gee, I'm not really sure...was it b?

You can have the shoes. Charlie and I will have some snacks :P

RaShelle said...

Oh my, I love those shoes. Charlie, you're a kitty with great taste. =D

Lynda R Young said...

um what? lol
I think there must be some competitions that require asking a question (part of the law or something maybe) so they ask the silliest and most obvious questions there are.

Brian said...

Gee, that's a tough one, I'll have to think on that for a while! Let's eat Charlie!!!

Ann said...

Ohhh, I do hope you win 700.00 worths of shoes!!!! A dream come true. I hope you sent in the correct answer. It's C isn't it? LOL!

Ann Best said...

But you ARE a winner--in every way!!! So says Jen, too!!!!

sounds like a trick question to me but I'd have to say Feb 14th.

notesfromnadir said...

Charlie needs snacks. You need shoes. Isn't logic fun? :)

Katnip Lounge said...

OMG. My one weakness is shoes. Before I tore my plantar fascia and my arch collapsed I was a shoe FIEND. Nowadays I specialize in Keens and Merrels...funky, but flat.

*sigh*

Plain Jane said...

I love those "sensible shoes". I think I have a pair.

Summer Frey said...

Um, really? wow! I need to enter some competitions like that...

Summer Ross said...

Well happy womens week to you!

Um really- feb 14th! Or maybe I don't understand the question- LOL it has been a long evening for me.

Bossy Betty said...

Love this picture of Charlie.

Ummmmm...Feb. 14th?

Where are my shoes?

m.q said...

charlie looks interested with that RED shoe hehehehe

d'Artagnan Rumblepurr said...

Shoes can be food! *chomping on heels*

Madeleine said...

LOL! Now that's a hard one... I guess they tend tp make the answers easy to get more people enter with their mobile and call charges to help pay for the prizes. I hope Charlie finds a snack competition to win! :O)

Niki said...

ooh I know I know 14th Feb :o))))

Besty luck KittyCat hope you win.

Ellie said...

LOL. They do make the questions so hard, don't they!

I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you!

Words A Day said...

Good luck with the competition! Thats a serious amount of shoes, it would get me a life times supply! I supppose for the more sophisticated, it might by one pair of jimmys!
I hope you win!

fairyhedgehog said...

Usually when the question is this easy they charge for entering. I think it's to encourage people to enter!

Good luck anyway!

Kea said...

Could I just have the 700 pounds? LOL. I don't need shoes, I need my bathroom renovated. LOL.

Seriously, that was a real question? Gee, let me think on that one. Maybe I need to Google for the answer. :-P

Manzanita said...

At first I laughed and laughed but perhaps a lot of men don't know when Valentines Day is.

OOOhh....More red shoes for you. I hope you win.

Justine Dell said...

Seriously? That's just crazy! Everyone will get it right (hopefully, lol).

And tell Charlie those shoes don't look sensible at all! Look at that heel! ;-)

Hannah and Lucy said...

We love competitions like that one Jenn - we usually find them in the waiting room of the dentist three years later!!
Glad to see you like very sensible shoes - mum does too hahaha!!!
Hi Charlie - you're looking good.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Marg said...

That sounds like a trick question to me. We will leave it so you can win your shoes as long as you get Charlie some treats too. Hope you have a fun day. Keep hoping Charlie for those treats.

Hart Johnson said...

*giggles* Too funny. I guess some contests really are just about being a lottery, but yeah... the 'this year' is hysterical. And I think Charlie and I are in agreement about high heels... very uncomfortable...

Lydia K said...

That cat really want to wear those shoes, LOL!

Pk Hrezo said...

Really? A real question? Wow!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

I bet you're a shoe-in to win!

the writing pad said...

£700 worth of shoes?? Now that is serious :-) What is it with these comps / questions? In horse mags, you often get (say) "Ariat Boots are made of finest quality cow hide," then, the question, to win a pair: "What are Ariat boots made from?" Can anyone ever get them wrong?!
All best

suzy doodling said...

I also love shoes. I have a wardrobe full of those that you never wear, but just have to have. Thanks for the tip.

India Drummond said...

Okay that's hilarious!

Charlie has good instincts!

Margo Berendsen said...

I don't know, he does look really intrigued by those shoes! So you have a shoes fetish, eh? (smile)

Beth Zimmerman said...

Of COURSE you need more shoes! Silly Charlie!

Cat Chat With Caren And Cody said...

I am wondering if you have a different one too...ours WAS February 14!

Jenny Woolf said...

well that's a puzzling question. 14 Feb rings a bell but then that's a month after my birthday (Jan 14) so maybe I'm getting 'em mixed up

Theresa Milstein said...

My husband would ask a question like this. Because the Jewish calendar is lunar, he thinks everything has a fluctuating date.

Some sensible shoes!

KarenMcG said...

"Old Kitty",

Those are some serious looking shoes! I love red.

Good luck with the contest.

And, Charlie? You've got the right idea...nip and snacks every time!

Sharon K. Mayhew said...

Great question! I'm thinking this year it was on February 14th. Last year I think it was on the 15th... at least that's what my husband told me. (wink)
