Just a little reminder that the £100 for One Hundred Words competition is still running over at Larkin & Catcher. The competition is poetry-related but even if you’re not a budding poet it’s worth having a go, as the prize is £100 worth of items from the Larkin & Catcher store. I know I’m biased but there really are some lovely things there and you could either keep them for yourself or store them up as gifts for birthdays or even Christmas (I’d just keep them).

Anyway, we’ve came up with an even better idea which will totally blow any opposition clear out of the picture. There’s nothing like self-confidence, even if it is (usually) misplaced.

Here’s a little competition question: what did Stephen Hawking say he reached for whenever he heard mention of Schrodinger’s Cat? The lucky person who provides the first correct answer will receive one of our *very first t-shirts!

* the winner may have to wait a year or even two before they receive their prize, as we’re currently working on at least a dozen projects, and — if our past track record is anything to go by — some of these ‘brilliant’ ideas may not materialise into any concrete reality.  Still, it’ll leave you something to look forward to and what is reality, but a perceived state?
