Contest, give away, and bling...oh my!

It all started with this:

It was not an award that I received. Of course not. But it was one that Rhea got. And it made me laugh. Cause my blog is so the antithesis of that. I suppose it has purpose for me. In that this keeps me sane. And gives me adult connections. But what I write about? Not so much.

So...on the post where Rhea thanks the academy for her prestigious award...I commented that I needed an award for having purposeless random drivel - and that I am the queen of that. So...what did my friend Rhea do? She made an award for me.And even had an entire post on her blog awarding me with this amazing bling. (And here we can note my procrastination genius - because she did this like a month ago...and it's taken me this long to figure out what to do about it.)

So...to celebrate my coronation as queen - we have celebrated Rhea week. AND I think that we need a contest. WITH prizes. Fantabulous prizes.

To enter...please submit your favorite "random drivel" post that you have done on your own blog. All entries (or the first 15. Do 15 people even read this blog?) must be submitted by Sunday afternoon...and then will be posted on Monday...with a poll to decide the winner.

And whad'ya win? A bunch of fantabulous prizes. Fantabulous yet random prizes.

What is in that picture? It's like Oprah's favorite things. Except that I am not connected enough to have one for each and every one of my readers. So...it's lots of random stuff that I have blogged about. There are some jibetts for your crocs. Bath and Body Works hand soap in my favorite grapefruit scent. Bath and Body works iced tea lotion. A Brighton bracelet.Sharpie Highlighters. Two well loved book slobbed smutty books. Including one too hot for Borders.Some glitter. From when I had a delusional moment and thought I was crafty. A cook book. A copy of Bookmarks magazine - the one subscription that I receive. Fabulous scrapbooking supplies - including an album that was never for sale, adhesive, paper, and a scalloped corner rounder. I'll also throw in other decorative stuff personalized for the winner.

What else is in that picture? Oh...there's a webkinz.Because my kids thought I should include one. And that everyone needs one. Use it for bribery for your kids. Or your students. Or your cousins. Or keep it for yourself. And that big purple box? It's a brand new Cranium game. Fun and trivial for the whole family.

And there is a gift card to Target. And another for Office Depot.

As Jeff Probst says: "Worth playing for?" Well...send in your submissions...and grab this bling (another thanks to Rhea) for you!

And while you are ruminating about which of your posts would be perfect for this contest...scroll down to play our Friday Follies game...

Wow, I'm the first commenter! You're the woman Kat! I want that button. Do I just copy it and paste it? I'm a technical idiot as you see. And I'm entering this contest. There's so much drivel over the past few months, but I'm sure I'll find something appropriate. Wait, I know exactly what I'm submitting! It's on the way...

Kat said...

Angie--Yay! Thanks for playing. You can submit here in the comments section - or email me your entry.

To get your bling...put your cursor on the image and right click it. Choose "save as" and save it to your computer. Then you can post it to your blog however you like.

So, how do I do a linky thingy?

I am so all about being random!--and your prizes look like the table at a school auction--I want all of them :)! Except the too hot book---I do have 4 boys in my house!

And you're playing "Give It Away"--I get it!!

I actually have a label called Rambling, which made sorting out my randomness so much faster! I love the random assortment of stuff, so pick me! Pick me!

Rhea said...

I love all the stuff you're giving away.

I'm having trouble deciding which of these two posts is more random....

http://texaswordtangle.blogspot.com/2008/06/bodacious-bag-boys-books-bad-cut.html

or making my kids go into a corn field...

Hey Kat,

Great contest!

Since my whole blog is made up of random drivel, I'll just link to my latest post.

Your "drivel" is what I keep coming back for!

Mine aren't nearly as interesting but oh so random...here is by far the strangest and shortest:

While I love your "drivel" (cough cough) the last thing I need is more stuff......no entry from me!!

Lula! said...

OK...
So even though I knew this after years of ballet and cheerleading, I have been reminded that I am NOT good with competitions that require my work to be judged. I flake and crumble under the pressure.

I have no entry...don't hate me. I want your free stuff.

You know this means you will now win my giveaway. And that would ROCK!

Mama Dawg said...

If I count right, I think I'm the 15th entry.

here's my random link. it's short, but I think it's totally random.

Joye said...

Totally off topic- I found a great YA/Tween book- The Doll People. Dolls are really alive and moving around when people aren't around. Neat story and pics. Also, I am thinking about reading Warriors. Do you think 6th graders would be into it?

Rhea said...

My book package arrived today!!! I'm so excited!!!

Thank you SO much, Kat!!

Those office supplies are calling my name. How's this for random?
