Thread: April Contest Winner!!!

  1. #1

    Default April Contest Winner!!!

    You guys are amazing!

    Congrats, Robin Wright, you won the Juicy ring! Good work! Please email your address to karen@karenmoning.com.

    I said, Your mission: Find and decipher it. Tell me what I hid, and what it means.

    Cait, aka tuskino_aiko came close, first, but didn't get it right. She recognized the runes but read them backwards.

    A few minutes later, S. Fitzmaurice translated the runes right, but didn't know what it meant.

    A few minutes after that, Robin Wright said: "Ogham letter. Ogham being the ancient Irish alphabet, but mostly translated using the similar alphabet of Basque, making a lot of the old Irish translations confusing. Anyway, it translates to the word Zigor, which in Basque means "Punisher".

    Then, about thirty minutes after Cait's first try, she emailed again and said, "I got it. It's JZB's middle name. I was reading it backwards before. ZIGOR, Gender masculine, Usage: Basque, means "punishment." JZB is Basque and Pict!

    Cait and Shawn, nice work! Choose from a signed copy of HC Faefever or Bloodfever and email me your address to send it to.

    There's actually some debate over whether Zigor means "punisher" or "punished" in Basque.

    Zigor is JZB's middle name.

    Thanks for playing!

    Okay, sigh, back to real life.
    December was Christian-he knows naughty or nice.
    January was Grimm with his eyes of blue ice.
    Cian was November-when the Dark Glass set him free.
    Drustan in February made us think cherry tree.
    Dageus is March—Why, do you say?
    March has “Lips Appreciation” and “I’m in Control” day.
    Multiple Personalities-he was possessed by 13.
    When it comes to sacrifice-I’d say his was supreme.
    Return Borrowed Books week makes me think Gaulish Ghost.
    Yes, I would say March suits Dageus the most!

    I can see what looks like a ring in her hand. BUT where are the runes, I am trying to look, but I can't seem to see them. I must be the only one.

    ..although I'm a little heartbroken...
    I liked to think of JZB's middle intial to stand for Zachias.

    "Zachias was a wee little man, and a wee little man was he, he climbed up in a sycamore tree....." LMAO.

    I always figured that's why he is such a brooding grump---he got called "wee" back in the day! hahahahaha
