Happy Cinco de Mayo!

Yeah… in honor of the “holiday,” this is what I did today–

Guess it’s not much of a celebration, but it had to be done. Not bad lookin’ skulls either, if I do say so myself. Which I do, ‘cuz I just did…

Anyway. Just a light-hearted not-so-artistic picture-of-the-day for you all via Blackberry and my carpal tunnel.

BUT, WAIT! Something semi-exciting is happening today! And no, it has nothing to do with Cinco de Mayo.

Exactly 1 WEEK from today… my blog turns 30 DAYS OLD! Be excited.

Since the birth of this blog, I have consistently (I say consistently meaning almost all days, besides like 1 or 2) had at least 8-9 viewers everyday… but in the past 7 days, we have had as many as 23 viewers in one day! Whew, that’s a lot. However, very… very, few of you actually comment to say “hi,” “hey,” “nice,” “cool,” or anything else to let me know you’re actually real people out there in cyber-land reading this blog. And for those 8-9 of you who check in every day… THANK YOU! I ❤ you lots (but some of you are still so quiet).

SO! In honor of my blog turning 30 days old next Wednesday (and for my own curiosity to find out who exactly is out there reading) we are going to have a SWEEPSTAKES! Yes, there will be prizes. And all you have to do to enter this sweepstakes is to comment this blog anytime, anywhere, between now (May 5,2010) and next Wednesday (May 12, 2010) at 8 pm Eastern Time. You could say: “hey, this sweepstakes thing is a good idea,” or you could comment on a post and say: “I really like this picture,” or you could ask me a question like: “Where did you get this interesting idea for a story?”  You CAN NOT, however comment and say “I’m entering this thing” or something of the like. Well, I mean, you can… but it won’t qualify you for the sweepstakes.

You can enter as many times as you want, but only your first two entries will count for the prizes. I’m going to pick two winners… yes TWO WINNERS! using the “true random number generator” on the sidebar of RANDOM.ORG. Everyone who enters will be assigned a number (or two numbers) depending on the order that they post. So whoever posts first will be number 1 and so on. If, say, number 1 posts again, they will get a different number, say, 7. Then next Wednesday I will put in the min as 1 and the max as however many entries we have and click Generate. Whatever number comes up WINS! And then I’ll do it again, and whatever number comes up then, also WINS!

Pretty nifty.

I haven’t decided what the prizes are going to be yet. But let me assure you, they will be pretty cool. Even if you live far away from  Michigan, please, still enter. I will send you your prize via snail-mail. 🙂

Okay, cool. So, everyone got that right?

.     -Enter by commenting anywhere on the blog.

.     -Up to 2 comments count for the drawing.

.     -Must enter between NOW and Wednesday May 12 at 8pm EST.

.     -There will be 2 winners.

.     -And there will be prizes.

I hope you all find this a fun idea, and if not… let me know!

I look forward to hearing from you blog-lurkers out there, and I love you all! 😀



  1. ooooooo, prizes! I love prizes!

  2. cool ideas!

  3. you are really, really sweet 🙂

  4. Dude. What are the prizes? Running shoes? A Miata? I could use a new salad spinner. 🙂

    • College-student budget. That’s all I’m sayin’. 😛
      But at this point, who knows… maybe if you win it will be a salad spinner. 😉

  5. Maybe a day with you, Meghan? Swooooon.
