It's a tiny contest!

The 3.4 of you who are avid readers of my blog are already aware that my birthday was re-scheduled for today. For those of you who are new - it's my birthday! In honor of this joyous occasion, I'm having a GIGANTIC(tiny)contest. The rules are simple:
1. Look around the blog a bit and leave a comment on any entry. The comment should mention the contest and should also not hurt my feelings.
2. Leave your e-mail address in the form of me (at) whateverdomain (dot) com so spambots can't steal your info and sign you up for porn or whatever it is that spambots sign you up for. (I promise I'm not going to sign you up for any list or e-mail you a bunch of stuff or anything. The e-mail info is only for this contest and then I'm tossing it.)
3. You have to have a paypal account so I can give you the mass amounts of prize money I'm offering*.
4. I'll pick a winner by randomly drawing a name out of a hat...or a jar...or whatever. I'll draw the name on Monday.
5.One entry per person.

First prize - $19 dollars and some change! The actual amount of change is for the year I was born but I feel like that's...uh...it's special information. Only the winner needs to know.
Second prize - $11.08! Obviously, this amount is for my birthday...which is today.
Third prize -$11.07! This amount is for yesterday...which would have been my birthday if it weren't for all of that work nonsense.

I know...it's an unbelievably large amount of money and you're probably wondering how on earth you could possibly spend it all.
Might I suggest a Giant Donny Osmond Head Recycled Album Cover Notebook?


I'm just sayin'...If you're going to win money from a girl with a giant head, giant head stuff seems like an appropriate way to spend your winnings.

Good luck!


* In the event that I'm not allowed to give out prize money and some official government agency threatens to throw me in jail or shut down my blog or something, I'll give away something of comparable value. If you're a government agency and you're reading this and you're all like,"whoa there missy, this is totally illegal!" well, I'd just like you to know that I did some pretty extensive research into the legalities of this and if it is in fact illegal, that information is pretty hard to come by.

Only you would have a contest to give something away on YOUR birthday. :) Too funny. You should demand your readers have a contest to see who gives you a prize.

Well criminey! I wanted to enter the contest but I just checked my (almost never used) PayPal account and because it a) only has an account that I haven't used in years and b) still has my name as my previous married name (um, the account is like 8 years old, heh) and c) it's apparently a very convoluted process to change the name on the account it looks as if d) I can't enter :(

Ah well! I hope you had a lovely birthday!

You are hilarious. I was having a tough day today with sleep deprivation from just having a new baby. Thanks for making me laugh. I would love to be considered for the prize. Every little bit counts towards diapers! :)

Paypal - info@dpk-virtualassistant.com

Thanks, DAWN aka PainterMommy

Happy Birthday! Sorry that your "other birthday" ended up being a not-so-friendly birthday-day. I hope that your new birthday is going along better!

Thanks for following me on Twitter, and I look forward to seeing your tweets.

Oh!! I totally want to win..but not the cash..instead it would be so cool to have a gift certificate for the amount to use in your way-to-cool etsy shop!! I ADORE--yes, completely ADORE--like I was on the floor bowing to your jewelry--kind of adoration!!! Oh--please pick me!
