Wrap-Up That Rascal!

So, some happenings have been afoot in the ole “Laws” household this past week, so it’s been a hectic, stressful and bewildering one, to say the least.  Nothing bad, and everyone’s fine, so no worries.  I can’t get into details at this time, but let’s just say that my mind has been on other things besides blogging.

Accordingly, I am totally phoning it in doing a review post.  I wanted to do a follow up of some of my most recent posts, and figured this would be a good time, since I’m totally blowing off this whole thing otherwise distracted.

Last week, I wrote about how I won the very prestigious and highly coveted prize for best hat in Jules’ Hold Onto Your Hats Halloween Contest.  This was the winning hat:

Mmmmm, Mac & Cheesehead.

Well, Jules graciously offered to gift me with an awesome pair of stache glasses as my prize.  However, she had already previously gifted me a pair at BlogHer, so she also told me that I could get anything else that I wanted in lieu of another pair.

They really bring out the color of my . . . toes.

So, I decided to go with something else.  Something not eyewear or even mustache related.  But still something very very me.  And luckily Jules approved and thought it was a great prize.  So she ordered it (even without having electricity, she’s such a superstar!), and sent it my way.  Behold, my super stealthy prize:


How rad is that?  But wait . . . there’s more.  When you turn the mug around, you get a super stealthy sneaky message on the back:

Love that mug so hard.  Thanks again, Jules!  You totally rock.


The next follow up is to my post from earlier this week.  My giveaway post that it seems not very many people want to participate in.  Have I mentioned the prize?

I mean come on!  Who wouldn’t want this totally awesome sex toy office supply for yourself?  A pen and a tape dispenser?  What is this . . . Christmas??

Anyway, if you are interested, make sure you comment on the post and tell me a story about someone doing something really sweet and lovely for you when you needed a pick me up.


And to end on a funny note . . . after my post on Wednesday about the Elections being over and thankfully also the ads for the candidates/issues, I found some great cartoons on point.  After I posted, of course.  So, I figured I would share them with you here, because they are funny, and well, because I can.  Enjoy!



Happy weekend, everyone!!

    The Ninja mug is perfect. Everybody wants to feel a little badass while sipping tea 🙂

    Oh god that ninja mug is fantastic. AND the stache glasses.
    I’m a highschooler who can’t drive yet, and I have some problems at home with my mom and stepdad. The weekend of their anniversary this year, one of my best friends kidnapped me, and the next day, my other best friend kidnapped me, both for the day, so I wouldn’t have to be around them. They’re amazing people.

      It’s really great to have people in your life like that, especially at such a young age. Sorry about the family troubles. Hope it gets better for you.

    I love your Ninja mug. Super cool. I’m going back to TRY to win your contest. HOW did I ever miss a contest?

    Misty – I hope everything’s okay. Let me know if you need anything.

    And geesh, another shout-out! Thank you! The back of the mug is AWESOME. I’m worried that Speaker7 (the runner-up) didn’t get her ‘stache glasses yet – I sent them a week ago – eep! I’m hoping it’s just because postal service is disrupted by the hurricane. Thank goodness Amazon came through for us.

    That tape dispenser is incredible. I’m off to try to get my paws on it!!

      I’m fine, but thank you.

      Glad to see that the storm did not prevent the glasses arrival. I would not have wanted to miss that beautiful mug of hers! 😉

    I hope things get better in the “Laws” household. 😉
    That mug…is…AWESOME! So very cool. The tape dispenser rocks too, but sadly, I can’t think of a story of someone doing something really sweet. Surely, there’s something but…I’ve got nothing! 😉

      Aww, that’s so sad that you can’t think of a nice thing. Hoping its just poor memory and not lack of niceness in your life!

      And thank you. Things are fine.

    I also need that tape dispenser! It would fit in perfectly with my work desk motif.

    I love that first cartoon. Someone needs to make that happen for 2016. (Non Sequitur rocks!)

    Very, very cool mug. Ninja Misty who knew. Well, you and Jules obviously.

    Long time reader, first time commenter. I gotta tell ya, from the title I was expecting a safe sex lecture potentially featuring a banana. However, the ninja mug and phallic tape dispenser totally make up for any disappointment I may have felt.

      I’m so glad someone caught that! 😉 Sorry for leading you on, but glad I was able to redeem myself in the end. Thanks for coming out of the shadows to comment!

    Geez girl, that’s phoning it in for you? I would have posted a video and left it at that:)

    And that mug is awesome.

    I want the Ninja mug. Can you give that as a prize?

    I was in a bar once that had discussion rules posted. No politics was right at the top.

    And it was enforced by both the staff and customers.

    That’s a great mug, and you more than earned it for that cheesy hat.

    Can I just tell you I LOVE those mustache glasses!! I WANT!

    I don’t think I ever expressed my deep admiration for that exquisite Mac & Cheese hat, Misty. You are the best, and fully deserve the ninja mug (which I am planning to break into your house and steal. Wait – did I say that out loud?)

    Jules excels at gifts and thoughtfulness. It’s obnoxious, really – making people look bad that way. Good choice, though, on the mug!

      By the by, just a reminder that if you’re wanting ANOTHER fabulous prize from the last Ask Sexy Stalin! installment – your very own WWSSD? wristband – don’t forget to email me your address (byronicmanblog@gmail.com).

      If you don’t want it, I won’t take it personally. Well, I will, but I’ll put on a brave face.

      I know. Doesn’t she just make you sick?? If she weren’t so damn wonderful, I don’t think I could even stand her. 😉
