Giving Sugar

This is gonna be a short one, folks.  Sorry about that . . .

Hey guys, remember this:

I’m thinking not, because even though I think it’s awesome, apparently nobody else did.  Well, a couple people, but honestly, the post where I offered this as a giveaway was one of my least commented upon posts in recent history, and definitely had the most paltry amount of comments for all of my giveaways.

So . . . I’m gonna announce the winner for this today.  And I’m hoping that person is really happy with it.  Especially since the odds were like 1 in 9 of winning it.

And for the first time ever, I used my 3 year old son for this pick, so you guys know this is really special.  (Seriously, y’all . . . he even put down his airplane to pick the name!!).

The winner is:


Angi, send me your address at mistyslaws at gmail dot com and I will get this out to you.

Now, based on the diminishing interest in all things giveaway, I’m gonna take a break from all that for now.  I actually have a few items that I was going to include here for the next giveaway, but I’m thinking based on recent history, that you guys aren’t really interested.  It seemed fun at first, what with the limericks and poems and songs everyone posted, but now I feel as if you are tired of all that.  And I don’t wanna push something on you all if you aren’t really interested.  So, for now . . . giveaways suspended.

(Just read that again and realized how pouty and tantrumy and I’m-taking-my-toys-and-going-home that sounds.  That’s actually not my intention.  I just wanted to explain why there was no giveaway happening today.  Not trying to be a big ole baby.  Oops).


On a fun and happy note . . . today is the last day to get all of your own personal pictures of those tragic specimens of whackitude to me.  I am posting that shiz this friday for the whacked, so send ’em to me!  mistyslaws at gmail dot com.  Make me proud, people!!

    I had a contest once. I think 6 people entered, including a couple commenters I hadn’t heard from before and haven’t heard from since. I guess I overestimated the number of people who might want a copy of the latest Diary of a Wimpy Kid book signed by the author. At least the winner was someone who really appreciated it.

      Yeah, I got lucky on this one as well. I guess people really don’t want free things, huh? Or, I think they are fun and funky, and everyone else just thinks they are stupid?

    Shame, to a new reader that was my first and last giveaway 🙂

    I think that your giveaways are awesome, fyi. Do you know what is even MORE awesome than your giveaways? The card that you sent me and the phone call that you made to me in my time of “woe is me”. Love you, girlie.

    I totally heard Cartman saying “Screw you guys, I’m goin’ home”. 😉 Hope your week is improving as mine appears to be evolving into a giant shitstorm and we can’t both be downward spiralling at the same time.

    Yay for me! Though it was a shock to see my name. I started reading this post and thought, “well darn, I should have come up with something clever to say because that would look awesome by our coffee maker.” And what do you know – I DID comment that day.

      Yay you! And I’m gonna send it to you soon. Sorry, but I’ve been crazy busy and the blogging stuff has suffered, unfortunately. I’ll try to send it this weekend.

    I generally assume I won’t win anything, except that time I went to a fundraiser for a local group called, “Alternatives to Violence” and I was the only one there who wasn’t part of the group, so the only one who got a raffle ticket. I got a growler of beer, which was awesome, but I felt like I was “using up” all my wins, and am pretty sure that it’s why I didn’t win the Mega Millions Jackpot.

    Also, I am spending a lot more time with my ukulele and less time on the internet. I keep missing things. 😦

    I don’t do giveaways, but occasionally people give me things anyway. Which is weird but appreciated! I just feel like I have so many good things in my life that I shouldn’t hog them. So I don’t enter giveaways.

      But it’s fun! And people obviously want to give you things and you should participate. Plus, it makes the giver feel wanted and loved. You don’t want to make me feel unloved, do you Andi? Well, do you?

    I’m sad 😦

    I love you anyway, even though I never win anything. And through no fault of my own, SINCE I HAVEN’T BEEN ABLE TO COMMENT ON YOUR PAGE FOR LIKE EVER.

    And now? I’m taking MY little red wagon and pulling it home ALL BY MYSELF.

      I call bullshit. I entered you in the last one by email. So you were in fact in the running, even without the ability to comment. And for this one, you could comment just fine, thank you.

      I just think it’s that YOU don’t love ME. Hmph!!

    I don’t think you sound pouty, but then you told me that you had few replies to this giveaway, so I’m not surprised.

    …maybe it’s the whole “you can’t get something for nothing” concept. I recently saw something I kind of want to get and do a giveaway, but I don’t know that my readership is broad enough that a giveaway would be any good. It will have to be after my move, anyway.

      I think you should. At least to test it out. If you don’t get enough or nobody wants it, then you will know. I’ll enter . . . I promise!! 🙂

      (Or, you know, you can just GIVE it to me, if that works better for you. I actually LOVE giveaways, but never ever win).

    It was a giveaway?! Shit. I was super busy and kind of skimmed that freaking post and, well, if we’re being honest I actually only looked at the picture. Expect a pallet of C&H Pure Cane Sugar to be delivered to your door any minute now….

    All I want you to give me, Misty, is your love. And mustache cards. And mac and cheese band-aids. Oh wait. Score.

    (I was seriously happy I got a paper cut the other day so I could use a band-aid.)

    Must be going around. I offered a free postcard to anyone who wanted on and I only got 3 takers. Either people hate traditional mail, they underestimate what awesome postcards I send or the blogosphere has grown apathetic.

    I have received things from 3 different bloggers, so I know it’s legit. Well, Red was one of them and that was different. I am interested and will enter. In fact, since I am ahead of the game here, you should just send me whatever the next thing was you were going to give away.

      Hmmm, not sure if that would work or not, since it was a pink scarf.

      Just kidding. Anyway, you would give it to your daughter, so that probably would work! 🙂

      I will keep in mind that you are interested. You are one of the few that is, so I’ll have to figure out a better way to do it. Either that or just better prizes, which might be my problem! Stay tuned . . .
