EDIT: Thanks so much, guys! This is too fun! I’ve loved meeting new friends the past two days, and you Old Faithful’ers are dolls. DOLLS! Only 33 more comments–we can do it! (I know some of you are rebelling against my “ploy for comments,” but would you humor me just this once?? I won’t name names (yet). Pretty please??)
I promise a real post tomorrow, but for now, I have some thrilling news. My sister Bethany and her hubby Stewart had their 20-week ultrasound today. IT’S A…!!! Congratulations, Beef and Stew! LOVE YOU!
The geo is for geography. The groovy is from watching too many Brady Lunch episodes this weekend. And the give-away is just what you might think it is–a give-away!
The rules of engagement are a little bit different this go-round. First of all, to be entered in the drawing, all you have to do is tell me where you’re from. If you’re afraid of stalkers, just give me the state (or country if outside the U.S.). Or a code word (if you’re really scared). If you laugh in the face of the fear of internet psychos, then go all out and give me your city (town, village) as well. Street names and house #s are unnecessary and do not increase your chances of winning.
And I know you’re wondering, “What can I win? What can I win?” Well, now, that’s a secret for the time being. I have a little stack of 10ish books here on my desk. They’re all written by people I’ve met personally or chatted with on-line. (I even included a couple of my own, since I’ve met me personally and all.)
I’ll choose 4 (FOUR!!) winners this time. Winner #1 will get his/her choice of four books. Winner #2 will get to choose 3 from what’s left. Winner #3 chooses 2 and Winner #4 chooses 1. I might even throw in an IOU for a book that hasn’t been released yet but will be here in a few months. (Expectant Prayers)
Hey, I’m feeling adventurous. Let’s up the ante a little bit. If we can come up with 100 comments (from 100 different people) on this post, I’ll do FIVE winners–5 books, 4 books, 3 books, 2 books, 1 book. I can hear some of you now, “I’ll still never win. I NEVER win. Even if she picked 40 winners, I wouldn’t be one of them. These things are rigged. RIGGED!”
I love you, my little nay-sayers (you know who you are!). Now, let’s all be good little sports and play nice. I’m going to leave the contest open for a few days and choose the winners on Friday or Monday. Best wishes! Can’t wait to hear where you hail from! (and I’ll give you sneak peeks of the books throughout the week)
