Awards, Contests, Prizes and Cucumbers

Well I hate to admit it, but I have been rather lax in the area of acknowledging awards I’ve been given and prizes I’ve received. Things just got a little out of hand and before I knew it, I had more crap piled up waiting for my blog than I had crap piling up in my house, if that is even possible. Well instead of tackling that job, I’ve decided to slap out a contest announcement and some “thank yous” for prizes and awards received. 

First I want to start with a shout out to the sexiest darth vader mask-wearing, blogging, foul-mouthed hotty this side of the pecos mountains, Tattooed Minivan Mom (TMM). Anyone who takes pictures of herself and her kids hiding behind halloween masks but proudly displays unaltered pictures of her macho, bike riding, tough as nails but soft as tissues when you need him to be, old man on her blog is a woman after my own heart. And boy does she have a constest going.

TMM is giving away a bottle of Sensual Massage Oil by Kama Sutra. That’s right kids. She’s not giving away some mamby-pamby baby wash cloths twisted into the shape of a bunny or some lame cucumber scented dollar store bath oil. Oh no, that’s way too tame. She wants you all greased up and ready to go. [Insert your fantasy here.] And she’s throwing in a $50 gift code from Eden Fantasies so no cucumbers needed. Period. Go check out her contest here–you know you want to.

I wanna thank Joelle over at The A-Priori Mommy for randomly picking me as the winner in her 200th Blog Give-a-way. This weekend I received a lovely lavender scented sachet and a gift card to Starbucks coffee. Joelle, don’t hate me but I’m going to give the prize to Linda. She adores girly things like the sachet and absolutely LOVES Starbucks coffee. She hasn’t found a job yet and is only working part-time at Barnes & Nobles. Her money is running out and I am seriously worried about her. I know this would perk her up and she sure could use some perking up.
I never properly thanked Kim over at A World of Progress Teamzine for the absolutely coolest t-shirt I have ever received. Don’t ask me what the contest was, but I entered and won. The t-shirt has Kim’s peace-sign inspired logo and my favorite saying, which is located on my blog so I am not telling you what it is. Kim asked for a picture of me wearing the shirt, but I ordered a medium on the intention of losing 20 lbs. Kim, when I lose the 2o lbs., I promise you’ll get a pic. If you folks are not reading Kim’s blog, you are missing out on one of the better political blogs out there.
There’s a lot of other stuff I missed and some stuff I won and I deleted my emails and now I don’t remember who gave them to me and I am embarassed and ashamed and am using run-on sentences to confuse you and deflect the guilt I feel for not acknowledging them. But here’s what I do remember:
Thanks to NJDecorator from A Devonshire Design for giving me the triple award that her sister gave her. Thank you. (I’m so blushing.)
Thanks to the Brian and Steven over at Green Dads and Book Dads for awarding me with the Men With Balls book by Drew Magary. Even though it turned out to be a book about sports and there were no pictures relating to the book’s title (damn I’m desperate), it was very funny and an awesome prize.
I also won some really nice hand-help choppers that sort of look like cookie cutters. Being the lame jerk-weed I am, I don’t remember who I won these from but they are really cool. If you are the one who awarded me these neat-o kitchen utensils, please leave a comment and I promise I’ll post a link.

Lastly, I’d like to direct you to a really cool blog, Meghan’s Mindless Mutterings. Meghan works with me and yet had no idea I was a SITS member. But she knows now. And so do you so run on over to Meghan’s blog and send her some comment love.

    Sounds great I hope she likes it! Hope you keep stopping by, I’m hoping to have more giveaways in the future with a bit more regularity!

  2. Steven (Book Dads) says:

    Your welcome.
    We actually have another copy sitting here that we are supposed to write a review for.

  3. TattooedMinivanMom says:

    Now that’s a great shout out. I’d give you even more extra entries for calling me sexy, foul mouthed AND a hotty but it’s not in the rules and wouldn’t be fair to the other bitches.

    Good luck Presto-Chango!

    Thanks for the shout out Preston.
    As for the pic, wow! Was I ever that thin? Sure for 17 I was thin….21 years later, one 11 pounder & years of working on my ass at FMP has expanded parts of me that I didn't think would expand.

    Thanks again Preston!!!

  6. Preston says:

    Joelle – I know she will like it. I haven’t given it to her yet cause I probably won’t see her till this weekend.

    Steven – Well get writing on that review dude!

    TMM – Presto-Chango? That’s all you could come up with? LOL And I only said all that cause it’s true.

    NJDecorator – Yea, I like my bling…

    KC Mom – You’ve got a nice blog there. Glad I found you through SITS.

    Keeper of the Skies – We may have to spaghetti wrestle over the TTMVM givaway!

    Meghan – Girl, you look good any year. 🙂
