We have finally arrived to the moment you've alllll been waiting for:
Announcements of the sweepstakes winners.
Some of ya'll tried to sneak in with some comments on Tuesday morning. NERP! Too late. Comments closed at midnight Monday night. Better luck next time.
I listed out all commenters in my usual bootleg style, using utterly bootleg methods. There were 108 comments within the timeframe of the contest.
I counted up comments, and once again, the person who left the most comments and the winner of the $25 dollar gift card of her choice is...
Congratulations Shai! Go girl. I said, GO GIRL
Shai, one of my favorite readers, left 14 comments. She just edged out Sweet Sasha, who left 13. A whole bunch of ya'll left 7 to 9 comments. Good for ya'll for trying.
You need to be like Shai, who has a stealth game plan. She says she doesn't. She tells me often... "I just like to talk."
And that she did. Talked her way into a $25 gift card.
GLORY! *throws glitter*
Now, I had to go find my blog employee Lt. Commander By. He does my regular drawings.
I found him working hard at his desk. And he was snacking on a fruit cup and drinking some bottled water.
By's sons did not have their fruit cups for lunch today.
And it was because their Daddy stole them.
And the next time I see his babies, I'MA TELL ON HIM.
That is all.
Anyway, By's hands are washed and lotioned. His fingernails are cleaned and clipped. Thank you, Mrs. By. You know us homegirls don't like no ashy man....
There he is pointing the cup of names out to us all.
And he pulls a name!!
And the winner is....
*ladylee claps slowly... with a big frown on her face*
Congratulations, chicken. Your comment left on 8/15, on the Quote of the Week post, won you that $88.
I am happy for her. But I am NOT happy about her choice of $88 gift card.
She's been hollering that her choice is the MAC store.
This confused me. I didn't know what that was. She said it was some makeup store. Some store at the mall.
I haven't been to the mall in at least a decade.
"Why can't you buy makeup at the Wal-mart?" I asked.
"No," she said. "I want a MAC card."
"But the Wal-mart has two aisles of makeup. You can buy makeup, groceries and a pair of panties at the Wal-mart."
Then she asked an interesting question...
"Would you buy your veggies at the dollar store."
This caused me to semi-hyperventilate. The HORROR.
I suppose not. So I guess I will be going to the MAC store.... MAC counter, whatever it is.
My cubicle mate, the Cowgirl Cre, and I discussed this dilemma. "You can look online and see if they sell them online. That's what all the bougie stores do.Online giftcards."
Lo and behold, she found the website. But they only sell the gift card in 5 dollar increments.
"Well," I said. "I guess she won't be getting a gift card, then. I need an $88 gift card.
Cowgirl Cre found this terribly funny.
Hopefully Serenity won't look over here and see her name. Don't tell her that she won. Let her find out.
That way I won't have to go to the mall. Ick.
Knowing her she will come this way, eager to see who won... Humph.
And a big LadyLee thank you to ALL of you for participating in the Bloggaversary Sweepstakes!
It feels good to have giveaways! Wish I could do a giveaway every week.
A classmate in my writing class said some blogger she reads has had Coach purse giveaways.
Don't ask me who. I didn't ask. Baby, I was too shocked to ask. All I know is that it was someone who was an executive at Coach or something like that. You have to be careful about that type of thing. You don't know if that chick is legitimate or if she cold boosting purses. I'd be terribly angry if I got locked up for receiving stolen goods. Oh noooo!
Now if I could ball like that? Give away expensive purses? Wow.
Honestly, that never crossed my mind.
Until then, ya'll gotta deal with store gift cards.
They are good for groceries, panties... and apparently high class makeup...
And that will just have to do... for now.
