Give a Gnome a Better Home!  
God bless the Commonwealth Bank, diagonally opposite my office. They were giving away garden gnomes free to random strangers on Monday; the idea being that you were to take your gnome home, then send a photo of him in his new home into the Bank. Five best entries will win a $1000 Myer gift voucher.

I managed to acquire one of these little guys; as luck would have it I was walking past just as they were finishing and I was given the last one. Rather than taking him home, though, I've propped him up in my office where I must say he's looking rather at home.

Here is Julian Anthergnome,with his new "Happy" family! (Happy Dragon is the emblem of St.George Bank, although I daresay he wasn't too happy once St.George had finished with him).

Current Mood: sillysilly

I don't think the Commonwealth Bank would be too happy to see their gnome surrounded by St George Dragons. *g*
It's cute arrangement you have there.

Well I certainly don't expect to win the competition, that's for sure! In fact I expect to have my entry disqualified for "inappropriate content".

Makes me think of my rag week days back in uni when we would kidnap garden gnomes and demand ransom in the form of money for charities. :D

He looks quite happy with the dragons.

That would have been fun! I'd pay to get my gnomes back, knowing it was going to a good cause.
