With all this hoopla surrounding the mega-gagillionz happening, I am hoping it's directing everyone's attention away from the 5+ giveaways I'm entering through blogs each night. It's that or I'll spend my nights knitting while watching old episodes of Shark Tank on my laptop.
When the blog craze started percolating after I had Miles about 4 years ago, my chances seemed to be so much better. In fact, I think total I've won ~5-7 giveaways in my lifetime. All between 2008-2009. In 2010, all my luck was directed at kicking cancer's ass for Eric (and keeping a newborn and 19 month old alive), and now I'm feeling like it's about time to win a blog giveaway again--especially as every blog I follow seems to be doing a giveaway as the holiday approaches.
See--that's me doing "The Secret" without having ever read the book/guide.
Just one $25 gift card to Target would be appreciated. Or even an Oster blender...faucet from Moen? $10 to Olive Garden? Strike that. Cheesecake Factory. Beggars can't be choosers, but the can have preferences, no?
Something to restore my faith in humanity, please!
Okay, I know that made no sense but I've always wanted to say it.
'Tis the season of entitlement...
*Reality check: I truly hope my sarcasm and post doesn't come off as serious. I truly don't need anyTHING right now. In truth, I predominately enter giveaways for the sake of re-gifting to other people. I might just be brewing up some random acts of kindness for my January birthday and am looking to score some swag to pass out to unsuspecting folks.
But you have to admit that there is a little part of everyone who likes to win regardless of the prize. In my case, especially if the payout is honor--like in the case of Scrabble.
So now go play the lotto. I hear your chances are really good. Leave those blog contests to me.
