I'm going to be out for a few day--I'm fine, I'm just putting my priorities where they should be....ENTERING THE FALL Y'ALL CONTESTS!
Oh hey wait! I do have something here--I got an apple peeler/corer from the thrift store. Very excited, I never could break out the wallet to buy a new one at the P/C parties I've graced over my lifetime (more than a lot). $5.00! So I purchased a bag of apples and I'm fixin to peel, core and slice up a batch of Apple Betty, I am! Then back here for typing, entering contests, typing, entering contests. I figure for every batch of work I type up tonight (150 records is one batch) I should enter four contests. I have about 10 batches, so I should get 40 entered this evening, in addition to the 20 plus I'm already in!
The timing of the giveaway couldn't be better with Christmas withing earshot. John and I are doing Christmas on a budget big time this year. I think it'd be fun to collaborate with others on this--we're dang tired of spending his bonus entirely on Christmas and property taxes. We're not moving, so I guess that leaves Christmas to trim.
On that note, I'm looking at these giveaways with a different bent this time. Is this re-gifting? I'm unclear on that. Say Ethel was doing a giveaway and Myrtle wins. Say it was a set of dishtowels. Birds all over them, very nice. Blue. But say Myrtle gets them and decides the birds don't really play nice with the folk-art cat theme she's got going on in her own kitchen. It would be mean to return them...it would be silly to thrown them out. The only thing Myrtle can possibly do here is wrap them up nicely and take them to her next Bridge party as a doorprize. Right?
Is it all wrong for me to get this excited about a giveaway?
