It's a giveaway! No, it's a contest! No, it's good karma!

Loyal readers know how much I love a contest. They also know that I'm quite lucky when it comes to winning said contests. And so I'm passing the good karma along and joining in on Swistle's awesome Group Effort Pay it Forward! contest.

Woo hoo!!

Here are the details -- to enter simply leave a comment (one comment only, please!) on this post by 11:59pm on July 4. I'll use a random number generator to choose a winner. Said winner will then receive a wonderful package of yet-to-be-determined goodies in the mail from me!

Then, and here's the "pay it forward" part, said winner is strongly encouraged to host a fun and easy giveaway on her/his blog in order to continue the fun!

Got it? Good.

Now, I fully realize that many of my most loyal readers don't have their own blogs. Please do not let that discourage you from entering. If you don't blog but do win then perhaps you can just do some other sort of pay-it-forward good deed.

Now be a good little reader and leave a comment to enter! (The winner will be chosen randomly, but witty comments are strongly encouraged!)

Oh, and if you don't already read Swistle, go check her out. She's one of my absolute favorite bloggers that I've never met!

  1. Ok, so now there is pressure to be witty which pretty much ensures I will not be able to come up with a witty comment. Dang. Am I still eligible to win sans witty comment? If not, I will come up with something before the contest is over. :D

  2. Do witty comments get counted twice? That would be awesome! (and cheating, somehow ::shakes head disapprovingly::)

  3. Have you ever been at an amusement park, and you end up behind the same people over and over on every ride? That's me commenting on blogs RIGHT AFTER YOU this morning. It's nice to be behind such an enjoyable person such as yourself.

  4. a pirate walks into a bar, and he's got a steering wheel attached to the front of his pants. after serving him a few times, the bartender decides he has to ask about the odd situation, so he says "hey, man, you know you have a steering wheel attached to your crotch..?"

    the pirate answers "yarr, matey, it's driving me nuts!"

    i'm not sure if that's "witty" or just "terrible." sorry :-)

  11. I have a two year old. All of my wittiness has been melted away by episodes of the Wiggles and the Doodlebops. Will I ever regain those brain cells?

  13. Does morning sickness get me out of having to be witty? Because the upchucked breakfast just takes the witty out of your day!!

  14. Witty? Really? I'm obviously overclassed then. Witty went out the door a couple months ago, I think. Sorry!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Hmm, witty, you say? I'm all out of witty (summer school is liquifying my brain). Could I interest you in a nice cliche or a pun?

    ReplyDelete
  16. Oh, none of us can be witty on command, especially when we're just here to beg for free stuff.

    So....

    Oh contests we love to win
    So if there's one--count me in
    I'm not all that witty,
    just ask my kitty,
    But really, is that such a sin?

  19. Ok, my favorite joke in the world:

    Two muffins are sitting in the oven. First muffin says, "Goodness, it is hot in here."

    Second muffin says, "Oh my GOD! A talking muffin!"
