‘Tis the season, ho ho ho, and all that crap.
Even though I just did a giveaway, I am leaping on the back of that Ninja Mug post, to do a special holiday giveaway. I want to make sure I can pick a name (or more accurately, my sons can) and get the prize to the winner before Xmas. I’m all festive like that and shit.
Anyway, this prize is actually a multitude of Xmas items that I thought might be coveted by all y’all. Here they are:
As you can plainly see, this prize is full of win. The mini martini set is from Williams Sonoma, the Christmas Story stuff consists of a Leg Lamp stress ball, 2 pens that display different messages when you click them, and a note pad. And the magnet is just made of pure awesome, obviously. (I may even throw in a few other items, as I keep buying fun stuff during my holiday shopping craze, and I can’t not give stuff away. It’s a sickness, really).
So, any takers? Anyone? Here’s your mission, should you accept . . . tell me a story. A Christmas Story, if you will. (See what I did there?). Tell me a story about something that happened to you during the holidays (Christmas and/or Hanukkah) that was truly wacky, crazy, ridiculous or cringe-worthy. Did your Aunt Clara send you a big pink bunny suit? Did your friend stick his tongue to a frozen metal pole? Did the neighborhood dogs eat up your Christmas day feast? Did you shoot your eye out?
Do not fear if the commenter ahead of you has provided a more creative or crazy story than yours. I have once again relinquished control (and all of that pressure!) of picking the winner, to my young elves. I will enlist their picking talents this weekend (why does that sound so wrong?), so get to commenting! Share away . . . and may the odds be evah in your favor!
On to other holiday related news . . . if you are a long time reader of this here blog, you might remember last year around this time I asked for people to send me their addresses. No, not for stalking purposes. Pfft, like I have time for that! No no no. I wanted addresses so I could send out Christmas cards! Although I am a self proclaimed Scrooge, the one thing I actually love to do is send cards to people. I do this all year round for birthdays, thank yous, or just because. If you know me at all, and I consider you a friend, you have probably received a card from me at some point. So, when the holidays roll around, I hunker down with a pile of cards, stamps, return labels and addresses and just send send send all that holiday cheer! (In fact, I am so damn good, that I’ve already sent my international peeps their cards. Be jealous).
So with that in mind . . . if you would like to receive some of my holiday cheer (sorry, the post office frowns on sending bottles of booze in Xmas cards) by way of a Xmas card (or just a holiday card for my Jewish friends), please email me at: mistySlaws@gmail.com (that S in the middle is important, so don’t forget it). I will send you out a lovely holiday greeting.
I need your addresses in the next week so that I can get them out to everyone. And if I sent you a card last year (or have sent you anything in the last year since) just assume I have your address and leave me a comment below that you would like a card (or not, you are probably gonna get one anyway). :p However, if you have moved in the last year, please send me your new address. I’m looking at you Dani, Mandi, Carrie, Noa, etc. You know who you are. You can’t hide from me!!
