Winners & A Flash Giveaway

Okay – so let’s start from the beginning. Winners, you have until February 14 – yes, Valentine’s Day! – to contact me at [email protected] to claim your prize(s). Unless otherwise specified.

So here we go again – time to see if your prayers and offerings to the randomizer.org gods have worked! (If not, perhaps you should stop that and start trying to bribe me. Let’s see if I can be bought. Could be fun!)

I was just… well, me. (I was going to say crazy, or stupid, foolish, or sleep deprived… but you know, all/none of the above?) And messed up a winner (Mary actually said she doesn’t read ebooks…)- so re-drawing one… Jen B. you get a prize from Michelle Beattie.

Next up, the lucky winners of Jennifer Haymore’s post! I’m super jealous of you guys! The winner of Confessions of an Improper Bride is Shannon-Nicole and the winners of Secrets of an Accidental Duchess are Mary Kirkland and librarypat! Ladies please send me your addresses!

Remember when Mia Marlowe came to guest and y’all went gaga over dudes in kilts and all? šŸ˜‰ Well her winners are Diane Sallans and Maria D. – again remember to send me your address please so the book can go out to you!

I really enjoyed Ruthie Knox’s post about what she’s done on a bike. This also reminds me I need to go and comment. :X You should too, if you haven’t! Her winner was lucky number one – in terms of comments for that post, so JoAnne Weiss -as only your email address is needed, I’ve passed that on. šŸ™‚

And last but not least for our winners…Ā  Dee Tenorio shared crazy stuff she’s done. Kinda makes me glad we live so far apart. šŸ˜‰ She went through and the craziest of the crazies? (kidding!) Dee’s Winner: Liz.

Hunh – it seems lately that she who comments first… wins. O_o it’s 4:10 AM, okay? So I can’t handle being clever. The whole early bird takes the worm is a) gross, I hate worms, and I’d say 4 AM is g-d early but I’m not getting any of the good metaphorical worms so WTF, sayings people?!

On that belligerent note, let’s have a flash giveaway! (Also I’m vaguely ashamed of myself. I knew “belligerent” is a derivative of the Latin word for war, but “bellum” slipped my mind until I looked it up. Because it was bothering me. Because I’m not getting enough sleep, okay?!)

Erm – so the flash giveaway. This ends in 24 hours. (Roughly. Maybe something like 20, so we’ll all just have to deal.) IDEALLY someone will win a signed copy of one of Michelle Willingham’s back list books.

How do you enter? Tell me something awesome in the comments. Something funny. Something of note. Something to amuse me. Just make it awesome. I’ll post a winner in the comments in somewhere between 20 and 24 hours… or like midnight Friday. Whatever. (We covered the me not thinking, yes?) And said person will have one day to get back to me. Or forever hold his/her peace!

Let me know if there are questions. I kinda expect there will be some. I perhaps even hope so, because I’m going to be worried for all of us if this made sense. :X

    I suffer from insomnia so I am still up, lol. Lately I am lucky if I can get 3 hours of sleep. Due to that, I can’t really think of anything funny or awesome right now…sorry šŸ™

    Anyway, gonna go try sleeping again, considering it is now 4:30 am.

    It is now 8.10 pm Thursday here in Australia, on a warm, balmy night. I’m heading off to bed in a few hours. In the meantime it’s all ‘playing’ on the computer & yelling at people to get out of the shower.

    Ok so an awesome post…hmmm, well I don’t have an awesome post but this might be funny.

    So I live in las Vegas for those of you who don’t know. And invariably when people find that out I get asked some of the same questions over and over…What kinds of questions? Well, I’ll share them with you.

    You live in Las Vegas? What Hotel do you live at? “Well Las Vegas is bigger than just the Strip and Downtown so I don’t live in a Hotel, I live in an apartment off the Strip” Yeah, but at what Hotel? *Pace/Palm*

    Are you a showgirl? “No, not all women who live in Vegas are Showgirls or strippers.” But, what else is there to do? *Face/Palm*

    And the thing that I get asked most often is…Have you ever worked in one of those legal brothels? “No, there’s much more in Vegas than Casino’s, brothels, and showgirls.” So you can’t get me a discount, then? *Face/Palm*

      HAHAHA oh dear, Mary. The last one… *shakes head*

      At what point do you just give up and play into their ignorance and say how you’re a total show girl who is a high class call girl on the side, and you live in a hotel penthouse and…. šŸ˜‰

      I think that could make for an awesome story and lots of potential fun! ;D

    I’m a teacher. Please tell me there is an end to the semester. I have three baffoons who think that fun is throwing things across the room when I’m not looking. Yesterday, I was working with a student on his writing. I’m leaned over his desk talking to him. I see in my periferal vision that a wad of paper is sailing over my head. I reach and snatch the ball in mid-air without missing a beat as I am talking to the student. Three jaws dropped to the floor. My three baffoons have now figured out that I am wicked at catching paper wads so now all they want to do is test my quickness. The moral of the story is…Never show up a teenager.

    How about being a bodyguard and not knowing it.

    In college, which was during the late 60’s at the height of the anti-war demonstrations (Vietnam War for all you young ones), our International Relations Club had the former ambassador from South Vietnam as a guest speaker. As an officer of the club, I was with the group that met him and escorted him around for the 2 days he was there. What I didn’t know, was when he arrived and met with the club president, he asked about security. His contract had specified extra precautions be taken. Our total security were the two campus policemen, both older and pretty harmless. They didn’t even carry guns. In a flash of brilliance (read – stupidity), he pointed to a male committee member and myself who just happened to be standing near the door, and informed him we were bodyguards, highly trained in marshal arts, who had been hired for his protection. I couldn’t understand why our guest was giving me strange looks all weekend. I don’t know about the other guy, but I flunked out of bowling in our PE requirements. Of course I didn’t know anything about this until after we bundled him off to catch his plane. To say I let the president have it when he told us is an understatement. What would we have done if there really had been trouble? Oddly, I was acting like a body guard as far as where I stood, how he was escorted, and how I was watching the crowd. Most embarrassing was being called in the next morning to come and “babysit” the ambassador. His flight had been cancelled and he was flying out later. I had to sit through a meal and several hours of waiting knowing he thought I was a bodyguard. How embarrassing.

    I can laugh about it now, but it wasn’t funny then.
