I'm tired.

Bloggy Giveaways Quarterly Carnival Button



Nope, I'm not giving something away (this time anyway!), but I did spend the greater part of four hours entering several hundred giveaways! You enter by going to one of the 700+ blogs, and adding a comment to the post with your information. They randomly pick a number this weekend and send out your free giveaway! There are some really cool things to be won!

I know, FOUR HOURS. Luckily (?) my kids were sick and didn't want to do anything else but lay around with blankets and watch cartoons. Ali spent most of the time on my lap so I was reading and signing up for contests with one hand.

As I was going through the list, entering ones that sounded interesting, I noticed a few things.

1. I can't even count how many comments I saw that said "This sounds great! Count me in! -Anonymous" Haha, good luck there buddy, I hope you win big!

2. Every time I went to post an entry, I noticed a lady that would always post before me. She was on almost every single blog that I was, her comments just mere minutes before mine. I pictured the two of us racing through cyberspace, our fingers flying over the keyboard itching to enter as many as possible before the hubby walked through the door, or the dinner boiled over.

3. My favorite was a comment on a giveaway for a $5 Starbucks gift card. The comment said something like "Oh wow, this is wonderful. Things are so stressful financially, so this will help out a lot." Right, drinking an expensive calorie-laden frappucino ("Extra whipped cream please!") is really going to help you pay your bills. A more appropriate giveaway would be a box full of groceries, or a full gas can. Or even a box of condoms so that people like this nitwit stop spawning!

Last night I went to bed with a numb buttcheek, and fingers that were curled into the typing position. I looked like an eagle about ready to swoop down and grab up a cute little mouse. And even as I was sleeping, another eighty giveaways were added. I. Must. Resist.

I did indeed! I won a Starbucks gift card (woot!) and a gift card to Happy Panda's online shop! (double woot!)

I am sorry you didn't win anything, hopefully you'll win big at the next carnival!
