A Hot Cup O’ Joe

Holy crap, you guys!  Y’all really want this mug, huh?  Which is spectacular, because I spent my hard earned duckets to get that thing for you.  I mean, this is by far the most expensive thing I’ve ever given away, and I was so worried that nobody would think it was as rad as I did.  And I know what you’re probably thinking right now, “most expensive?  A mug?  What the hell?”  Well, the hell is that it’s from Disney, and everything there is stupid expensive.  I think it’s the extra magic particles they put in all of their stuff.  Or the fact that they need to pay extra to the fairies on the production line.  Whatever the reason, this was no ordinary FIVE BELOW kinda mug, ya dig?  So, I am very pleased with the responses I got for it.  Ok, then.  Enough of all that.  Let’s get to it.

Once again, my kids came into play.  Sorry for those of you who voted for certain people and/or comments (ahem Hippie ahem), but this also limits my ability to pick a favorite as well.  So it’s all fair-like, capisce?

This time, I enlisted the services of my eldest son, 7, to help me.  There were a larger than usual amount of people who entered, which meant lots and lots of little papers which needed folding.  (Yes, I do actually type up each name, print them out and then cut them into equal sized pieces, before folding them into little squares and putting them into a hat to be picked . . . what?).  So, because of the extra volume of papers, I told 7 I needed his help folding them all up.  And after folding up a few, he commented: “huh, this is kinda fun.”  I love my little dork. 

So, since 7 was on folding duty (and hat holding), I let 4 pick the name:

And who, praytell, is the lucky new owner of this super mega ridiculously fabulous drinking vessel, you may ask?  Well, it’s none other than:

Woo-hoo!!  I am very excited for this win.  I think she may have needed a little special something more than anyone right now, being from Boston and having a very heart heavy week.  The fates (or 4) apparently knew she needed a little pick me up in the form of a mickey mug.  So, agirl, congrats on this super mega wonderfully rad win!!  I hope it will make you smile.

Go ahead and send over your deets and I’ll send this out to you.  mistyslaws at gmail dot com.


And, because everyone was so keen to know the answer to my little riddle from the last post, about whose face was on the other foot (if you didn’t read this, go back, and that phrase will make much more sense) . . . the answer is:


A few of you guessed it, so good job.  You don’t get a prize or anything.  I mean, except for having the knowledge of 50’s era stars who died young and guessing the correct one, which is a prize in and of itself.  So . . . go you!

    Too bad. I guess I’ll have to plan a trip to Disney to get one myself. That’s totally worth $500 in airfare, plus whatever the hell the park charges to get in, right?

    I think I need to go back to Disneyland just to get one of those mugs. Although in my dotage I may find it a little confusing. 😉

    I’ve decided to set aside the day to make my own mug. No reason. Just feeling creative with a dash of jealousy and a swirl of whatever. Anybody got some cardboard and glue?

    Oh, Cotton Floozy. I’m sorry. At least you have a really groovy happy place in which to recover from the disappointment.

    Reading everyone’s entries over the course of last week took me to a whole bunch of happy places that I had never considered before. Everyone put a bright spot in my days and I am truly thankful to Misty and all of you wonderful blog readers for doing that for me.

    You know, you could always just use an online Random Number Generator, but I’d hate to deprive “4” of all the fun.

      I’m aware. But this has sorta become my thing. Plus, the kids enjoy it so. And I love it when they try to figure out “who is agirlwhogames? Is that a person?” They are so cute.

    Hola Misty. Ama bat here: formerly known as Povertyanddeath. Sigh. I miss my old blog and had to delete it for employment purposes. But I can’t keep all my woes and outburts in so I am now the anonymous Ama Bat. This way I can continue to drop F bombs when the need arises. Anyway, just stopping by to say howdy and to steal your url for my blogroll 😉 Pleasure reading you!
