Sanity or Patience: choose one.

Do you ever have one of those moments where you think, "HA! I am sane!" Then you step in dog poo with your bare feet and remember it was your idea to get the puppy...?

Not Me Monday: Not A GIVEAWAY!!!!

Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.


Due to unexpected interest and consequent anticipation of winning my broken pooper-sitters, skunky scent-makers and , used fish-eye-Quinoa....


I did NOT actually purchase something brand spanking new to give away! And it is NOT listed below.

.

That's right, folks. There are NOT three bottles of O.P.I. nail polish in stunning colors which are NOT perfectly suited for Spring and Summer. You also do NOT see any O.P.I. RapiDry instant nail polish drying spray, which is NOT used in professional spas. Nope, NOT at all. You will NOT win over $35 worth of O.P.I. products because I am NOT having a giveaway! Do NOT cheer. Do NOT woot! I do NOT love you all.

Here's the real deal: In participation with SITS Spring Fling, this giveaway runs through Tuesday, March 10th at 11:59 p.m. Eastern time. Here's how you can win:

  • Leave a comment here for 1 entry. If you don't leave a comment, I will assume you don't want any prize and how the heck else am I supposed to know you earned any extra entries if you don't tell me?
  • Tweet about it for 1 extra entry. How I love twitter...
  • I hate to bribe anyone to follow me, but I will be giving an extra 5 entries to anyone who comments and is a follower. Loyalty counts for something around here. :)
  • I'll be honest, I'm a narcissist. If you tell me what your favorite post on my blog is, I'll give your sweet little brown nose an extra 3 entries.

The winner (that's YOU!) will be announced on Wednesday, March 11th by noon. I'll post about you and leave a nice comment on your blog with congratulations. You will have one week to get back to me with your personal information (scared?) so that I can mail out your pretties in time for warm weather. Otherwise, another winner will be chosen. Oh, and I'm just going to do this the old fashioned way and pull names from a hat. Or a bowl... whatev. Anything for the entertainment of Monsoon, who will thoroughly enjoy writing names on colorful construction paper with me.

Do NOT forget (seriously this time!) to hop over to SITS and check out more Spring Fling Events and Giveaways on Tuesday!

One of my favorite posts of yours is your TAT - The Shot. Your poor dad. Totally makes me cringe but laugh, too.

Ooh la, la. I love nail polish. But you know what? I've been told by three of the blogs that I follow I've "won" a gift. I've sent my address and I've yet to recieve the first thing that I've "won". Not sure what that's all about but I think that's just plain silly. (I'm certainly not referring to your givaway dearie, so please don't take it like that....I'm just a little stumped, ya know??).
If people, and certainly not you, are giving away virtual gifts, it would probably be really nice if they represented them that way. What do you guys all think? Is it just me??

Commenting...(yay, an entry!) I AM a follower (yay, more entries!), but I don't Twitter (boo, no more entries!), and I'm so new that I haven't been privy to all your wonderful-ness in postings yet! HowEVER, I do remember the fun post about when your dad took you guys to the casino and you got all bubbly for the pic; it made me giggle (yay, more entries)!

I am so going to have the bestest looking tootsies this spring and summer! I just KNOW it.

Glenda, saved by grace said...

I'm followin! I love nail polish (toe nail that is)

joanofalltrades said...

Okay. I've tweeted, commented, followed, and my favorite post (this is tough) has to be the one when Monsoon had the conversation with you about God. Uh....that sounds like 10 entries to me just in case you weren't counting. I do "not" really want to win this giveaway--can't you tell?

In response to your comment to me: I have been traveling for work for the past month and I am finally home for a week. So I'm playing catch up. Thanks for staying loyal! My poor diversity blog is feeling so neglected. I've gotta show her some attention before the end of the week.

Stephanie said...

I'm following you, too! Thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting! I haven't painted my nails in awhile....hmmm....have to change that if I win... :)

Have a Wonderful Day!

carma said...

Alicia @ Oh2122 said...

My nails are trashed from all the Etsy work I've been doing. They cry out for posh polish. They reject Wet-n-Wild and remind me that I am 30, not 13.

auntrene said...

I love McMama's blog. Love to see what the MSC have been up to each day. So to go with your NOt Me Monday!!!I have not entered many giveaways on Spring Fling today. I did not decide at 2 this afternoon that I had to give something away because I did not feel like I was missing something. I did not then call my niece and get 3 boxes of Girl Scout Cookies that she had left and buy them to put in a Spring Fling Giveaway on my site.
I did not do any of that because that would prove to everyone in my family that I am in fact addicted to blogging, and giveaways.
Have fun, loving spring fling.

andy said...

Ryan, I totally thought you had smooshed your husbands name, your name and your kids name into your blog name. What a dork I am.

And why haven't I ever visited before? I KNOW you for goodness sakes...sigh...life keeps getting the better of me. For shiz sister.

So now I follow, now I comment, and I have yet to figure out twitter. And I can't read any posts 'cause I have been felled by a migraine for the past four hours and missed A LOT of the SITS give aways:(

Oh well, if it's meant to be, it will be:)

Happy happy.
