The "Name Marjie's Blog" Contest

OK, here is where you can enter to win a copy of Chairman Mao's Little Red Book...just come up with a catchy title and subtitle (see generic titles above), and make them better than everyone else's.

Submit your entries as a comment using the link below this post.

How about
"THE DUMPLING DIARIES"?
"Marjie's quest to change the world, one student at a time"

Dennis Friedman said...

We were asked to name Marjie's Travel Blog. I'm thinking "this is a trick question". I think it should be called "Marjie's Travel Blog".

But what if it's not a trick question?

How about: "The Culinary Lens: Exploring the World One Kitchen at a Time"?

Dennis,

You may be right. What if this contest was as absurd as a severed head falling from the heavens and cracking Marjie's windshield? I choose to believe that this is legit, so here goes:

"Marjie's Mandarin Meanderings" or
"How I Penned a Great Short Story While Relaxing at a Shanghai Cafe, but an Hour Later I Had the Urge to Write Again..."

A better idea:

Let's see..."CHINA: Through the pen of Marjie."
"One noodle at a time". or
"THE CHINA BOWL". "One noodle at a time."

I like the blog vibe(or "glob" vibe, as someone called it yesterday). ...I hope that the anonymous alliteration expert knows that he/she will not qualify for any prizes if he/she remains anonymous. Also, you have to know that my niece gets all of the cute points, so she is definitely a front-runner. Don't tell my brother, but I couldn't figure out how to log into my own blog to respond until now. Keep the ideas coming and thanks!

Brian Bowker said...

I heard that!

I'm not looking for any prizes, unless there's plundering involved!

Don't forget, "Dead Men Tell No Tales..." (Treasure Island, R.L. Stevensen)

Perhaps naming your journey after that cinematic work of art from the 1970s- "Marjie's China Syndrome", Or "China Syndrome 2006" (obviously I hope your trip does not end in a nuclear reactor meltdown)

How about "Marjie Loves China: 1.3 Billion People Can't Be Wrong"

or

"Dr. Strangenoodle: How I learned to stop worrying and love the Chinese expropriation of America's most valued assets."

There once was a gal with a Blog.
It's name was encased in a fog.

When she inquired with some friends,
They were at their wits ends.

But the Pirate replied,
"Have some grog!"

This is a test. Sorry, I'm a rookie.

Having witnessed in my office how Marjie redefined the word cringe upon realising How Leif Erickson Discovered Sandefjord, I feel I can contribute with a few comments here.

How about any of the following combinations?

Marjie's Magical Mystery Tour: Chasing Chinese Chicken Chants

Wandering Won Ton: Marjie's Mad Dash for More (??help me here)

Eastern Encounters of the English Kind: Bowker Busts Bejing

Chinese Culinary Chase: Noodles in the Nick of Time

PS - I agree with Marjie - I don't know how to log on either - any instructions in Norwegian?

These are sure to help you make friends in China:

Remember Tiannamen!
(The People Will Rise Again, and I Will Organize Them)

Down With the Central Government
